Empowerment: How You’ll Know You’re Succeeding

- You remain curious and open to learning, and are not afraid to ask questions and invite discussion on matters, both legal and non-legal.

- Kyruuvians in the Senior Counsel role can move in a more linear career path on the individual contributor track to an Associate General Counsel/VP Legal role.
- Kyruus also loves to see an internal transfer. If a linear career path is not what you’re looking for, you can work with your manager and HR to explore lateral moves to other parts of the organization as you continue to grow with us.
