OC Women of ALPFA Spotlight: Julissa Arce
“The No. 1 lesson I learned is that there is always a way. Navigating a world where men still rule wasn’t easy”…” But where there is a will, there is a way.” – Julissa Arce
“Once I had the full-time offer, I turned that plan into, “How to become the first Hispanic woman partner at Goldman.” I came up with that plan “
1. Check in with my bosses periodically on my progress
2. Set and receive expectations for compensation
3. Be intentional about promotions
4. Self-promote (something many people are afraid to do)
5. Be flexible
