People tend to put a lot of thought into what job to take, but it is even more important to choose carefully when deciding which company to work for, Mary Navarro said when accepting a Lifetime Achievement award at the Most Powerful Women in Banking awards dinner this year.

The job is less important, because you will have a lot of jobs in your career. To make an impact in whatever job you have, the key is to be at a company that is a good cultural fit for your personality, said Navarro, who recently retired from her role as the retail and business banking director at the $100 billion-asset Huntington Bancshares in Columbus, Ohio.

In a speech sprinkled with career advice. Navarro also talked about strategies for team-building.

Navarro has worked in the banking industry for 42 years and has been on our Most Powerful Women in Banking list many times.
