How does the company support your career growth?

My Adobe journey began with little experience and lots of drive. I was recruited through the Adobe Digital University Program, and I attribute my success to being placed on inclusive teams where each member offered mentorship. Being supported has allowed my work product to exceed expectations and has been instrumental in my overall career growth.
