For the next installment of Mediabistro’s Profit From Your Passion series, we talked to Joe Ruffolo, senior vice president of ABC News Digital. His job encompasses everything from overseeing ABC News online’s various mobile properties and live streams to the site’s social media presence.

In a recent mediabistrotv interview, Ruffolo shared his best career advice: “You have to do well at what you’re doing now, and what you’ve been given — especially when you’re just starting in this profession. And when I look at people even in grade school and high school and college, people who can shoot and edit and all the technology understanding that they have… I think [they] have an incredibly bright future.”

Check out the video below for more from Ruffolo, including an important lesson he learned as an intern.
