Happen to Your Career

There have been events throughout history that have impacted the world as a whole. While we still haven’t seen the full effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has definitely made some changes for people across the globe.

These changes have put us into a “new normal,” and many people have been wondering how to move forward.

How do I know this? It’s because we have received hundreds of questions over the past few weeks.

We’ve been hosting special webinars to answer the most common questions that we’re getting (you’ve probably seen the invites to these - in fact, you may have even attended one or more of these).

Well, we held one of these webinars on March 23. Since most people couldn’t attend the webinar (and we wanted to share these answers with you), we’re airing the main part of the webinar on the podcast.

We answered 4 specific questions that people have asked:

  1. Having currently a job at a financially stable nonprofit, should I consider a professional move during pandemic time?
  2. How do I tell my current boss that I am leaving during these difficult times (Covid-19)?
  3. How do we know if we should go for interviews or accept an offer since it seems risky to change jobs now since companies are negatively affected by the Covid-19 situation?
  4. How do I know what new career I’d enjoy and be good at when I only have the experience from by current career as a reference point?

With Social Distancing and Quarantines in place because of Covid-19, how can I build relationships and get a job offer?

Many of the people that we have worked with here at HTYC tend to go through several career changes on their own. They try many of the traditional job search methods, and they don’t see lasting results. Usually, they start excited about their new role, but then, at some point, start realizing that something is off. Sometimes the role or company doesn’t match your values. Sometimes the role doesn’t match your strengths.

Laura Parker used to work for a global law firm for 12 years, and made a change to this technology company 2 years ago. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she needed to make another change, and that’s where she found this podcast. But I’m getting ahead of her story. We need to jump back and see why she needed to leave the law firm in the first place?

Laura has gone through our Career Change Bootcamp, and, right now, we are accepting applications for the next group for CCB. Companies are still hiring and our proven career change framework still applies today, even during these unusual and uncertain times. Over the past couple weeks, we have been talking with a lot of people and answering a lot of questions specifically about the current state of affairs. So, if you want to take the first step to make your change, send me an email, scott@happentoyourcareer.com, with “CCB Conversation” in the subject line. I’ll connect you with Phillip, our Director of Client Success, and he’ll help find the very best way we can help you.

Have you ever wondered how someone became a billionaire?

How did they get started?

What actions did they take to get where they are?

What mindset shifts did they have to go through? (because they do think much differently that most of the world)

Well, today James Altucher shares the insights that he has learned studying billionaires. Just a few key thoughts from the interview:

  • Different is better than better.
  • Lean into what makes you different.
  • Your life is not just a series of facts and statistics - it’s a story, so share it with others.
  • Learn to edit your life so you can make a huge impact on your career and life.
