Happen To Your Career

Landing your ideal career in today’s world often hinges on building, maintaining, and utilizing your professional network. We’ve talked a lot on the podcast about the importance of "reach-outs" and building relationships, but the part we haven’t discussed is how to actually find those people to reach out to and build relationships with. Specifically, how do you figure out who the right people are for your situation?

What you’ll learn

  • How to narrow down your pool of prospects when networking for a career change
  • The importance of being authentic when building professional relationships
  • How to figure out where your people are spending their time

Have you ever been rejected by a job opportunity and felt relief? That’s what happened to Charity. Her entire career had been a cycle of unconsciously falling into role after role, never really taking time to ask herself what she wanted. She had begun to experience burnout, which led to her robotically applying for jobs she didn't really want. But when she was rejected by a few jobs she thought she had in the bag, she realized she needed a much more encompassing change than she had originally thought. Learn how Charity figured out what she really wanted, took the reins, and started intentionally designing her life to be everything that she knew it could be.

What you’ll learn 

  • Why staying in your current role may be the biggest risk 
  • The importance of giving yourself a deadline and taking action (even if you’re not ready!)
  • How to use your differences and uniqueness as strengths
