Happen To Your Career - Meaningful Work, Career Change, & Career Design

What happens when the career plan you’ve always had falls apart? Anna VanRemoortel's identity was heavily tied to her job in academia, so when she realized she was no longer excited about her work and questioned her career’s direction, she felt like she was lacking in all areas of her life. In this episode, Anna details the highs and lows of quitting her job in academia, dropping out of her PhD program, and becoming an executive director for a nonprofit (in less than a year!)
