Starting the career search process can be intimidating, especially since the first thing any job search website asks for is WHAT? Like you’re supposed to know what job title you want in the first place?

When you don’t know what career path you want to take, the process is not only hard to get started, it can be paralyzing when you don’t have all of the answers. Just thinking about a career change causes stress, anxiety, frustration, and fear to rise inside many people because the majority feel stuck and unsure of what to do first.

But, there’s a way to get unstuck.

You have to be willing to change your mindset and approach your career change differently than you have before.

If you’re willing to do that, all you need now it to make the time and energy to get you through the journey.

Below, we’ve outlined tips from Kathryn Minshew, CEO and Co-Founder of The Muse, a career discovery platform that “puts the human at the center” and helps over 50+ million people a year in their career search.

Now, pull out a notebook and let’s get you started down the right path to get you unstuck and find your new career path.

Everyone and their mother is going to email you about your resolutions and goals now that it’s the beginning of 2018. I don’t want to do that to you. Plus you already know I have a serious aversion to doing what everyone else is doing?

So instead I thought I would email you an example of what NOT to do and then give you a complete step by step process of how completely reframe your future!

What’s the difference between a meager change vs a paradigm shifting change?

It takes completely reframing your future to be able to achieve a paradigm shifting change. More importantly when you go through the efforts to make them happen, you will not be the same person you were beforehand.

A paradigm shift you want to make might not have anything to do with travel or fitness or a “lack of mortgage”. It can be anything you want it to be. I’m very sure that there is something that you’ve wanted that you just haven’t thought it was possible so you haven’t seriously considered it.

  • There is nothing wrong with you if you don’t want to quit your job tomorrow and take a big risk to start your own thing. You have other options.

  • Learn how to decide what kind of side hustle is right for you.
  • How you can use your power of observation and curiosity to find possible side hustles that fit you.

I remember in 2006 I had just been fired from a job that I hated.

 

I was pretty determined to not have to go back to “just another job” where I would spend my days just waiting for the weekend as I grinded it out in meetings that had no meaning to me.

 

So I began learning everything I could about people who get well paid AND love their work. Let’s call these people “Happy High Achievers”

 

One of the things that I observed right away is that Happy High Achievers don’t often get jobs by traditional means. When you’re outside and looking in it almost seems random. It’s not though.

 

It also doesn’t have anything to do with applying 200 plus times on Indeed or LinkedIn.

 

So how do they do it?

 

Well we’ve talked in the past about the importance of prioritizing what you want. That’s step 1, you must understand where you’re going to make it easier to get there. That said Happy High Achievers realize that people hire other people (not companies and not computers) which means that the very biggest short cut to finding work that fits you (or even getting positions created for you) is through relationships.

 

Now over the years I personally have found the very fastest way to begin a relationship with someone else isn’t networking events (and it definitely isn’t speed networking!) It’s also not social media.

 

Instead it’s through something far easier: introductions.
