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.

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.

  • Why staying in your current role may be the biggest risk

When it comes to finding meaningful work, relationships are in & resumes are out! Turns out if you’re looking to make a change to more fulfilling work, your paper resume is actually pretty irrelevant in the career change process. Aligning your experience with a new role or a new industry is possible. You can have a meaningful, fulfilling career that pays well, but trolling job boards with your resume isn’t going to make it happen. On this episode, Liz & Ang discuss kickstarting your career change to meaningful work by proactively building relationships… and ditching your resume (just kidding… sort of).

What you’ll learn 

  • Why building relationships will get you farther than your resume 
  • How to align your experience with a new role and pivot your career
  • How building relationships can help you test drive new career opportunities

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?

As humans, we have a tendency to compare ourselves to one another. This doesn’t make us feel too great most of the time, but especially when it comes to measuring success. My measure or definition of success may not be the same as yours. And that is completely okay! That’s because success looks different for everyone. When you worry about other people’s opinions (even if it’s family or friends), it can negatively impact your potential success. On today’s episode, Celena Singh shares how she broke out of the restraints of other’s expectations and found happiness and satisfaction in her successes. 

What you’ll learn 

  • Why you need to figure out your own definition of success 
  • How outside opinions negatively impact your success
  • What you need to do to get out of your own way
  • How to stand up for yourself and find happiness where you are

Are the expectations of others holding you back from doing work that is truly fulfilling? Most of us feel like we have to behave like one person when we’re at work, and a different person when we’re at home or in our social circles. That in itself creates a social expectation. If you want to be yourself at all times, you’re bucking the trend. Because, in our world today it’s  not “normal” to get paid to be who you are, using your true strengths instead of just the skills you’ve picked up in various roles along the way. But, you want to know the weirdest part? By resisting being your most authentic self at all times (because of fear) we are ensuring that we stay unhappy by default. Learn how to go against the grain and find a career that allows you to be YOU! 

What You'll Learn

  • How to model living authentically during a career change to find a career that fits 
  • How to modify your job offer to reflect what you really want
  • How your boss can support you during your career change 
  • The importance of finding your strengths to determine your ideal role

Maybe you’ve been promoted over the years all the way to senior manager, yet you still feel stuck, bored, and drained. Society will tell you this is what success is! We disagree.

Learn how James Sannan came to the realization that there could be more to his career than the short phase of excitement he felt after each promotion, and how he networked his way into a meaningful career that he truly enjoys.

If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you know one of my most common pieces of career change advice is to figure out what you WANT out of your career. But, for most of us, figuring out what we want can be difficult. We spend so much of our professional lives doing what we NEED to do, that we often lose sight of what we WANT to do. Or, we assume that if we enjoy something too much, it must not be possible to do it for a living. (Not true!) Learn how Chris combined his love of cars and hobby of helping people search for vehicles into a new career path. 

What you’ll learn 

  • How to identify what you truly want from your job in order to truly find career happiness 
  • Why it’s important to focus on what you want, in order to land your ideal role
  • How to change your mindset on “work” and turn a hobby into a career that you love

When you’re not in your ideal role, your job may look picture perfect from the outside, but internally you are likely struggling with what to do to find real career happiness. This can also be incredibly isolating, because it can be extremely hard to explain to others, even your loved ones, why your career is not satisfying. It’s also often hard to come to terms with the fact that it’s time for a career change, when you’ve worked hard to get to where you are and define your career. Reaching out to let someone know you’re not happy and ask for career help is the first step on the journey to finding your ideal career. Louise McNee shares the story of her reluctance to ask for help with career change, until she finally reached out to HTYC and landed a new, more fulfilling role.

What you’ll learn 

  • How to overcome the natural reluctance to ask for career help in order to make a change
  • How to figure out what you truly want out of life to find your ideal role.
  • Why knowing yourself is a prerequisite to knowing what you actually want in a career.

Traditional job searching doesn’t work. You decide you want a career change so you start searching for titles you think you would enjoy, but in the end you are trying to squeeze yourself into the box of the few roles you see on job boards. If you do find a role that aligns with what you believe you want out of your career, and you land it, you usually start out excited about your new role… but eventually realize something is off. Many times the role does not cater to your strengths or the company doesn't align with your values. Laura Parker shares her story of what happened when she completed a career change, and almost immediately realized that she was still unhappy in her role.

What You'll Learn

  • How Laura knew she needed a career change in the first place 
  • The best way to go about leaving a company soon after you’ve been hired
  • How Laura figured out what she needed to do next in order to be happy in her career.

We all have strengths and weaknesses, and as we advance through our careers, we learn to cater to our strengths and compensate for our weaknesses. But sometimes, the aspects of our personalities that we think of as weaknesses may be our greatest strengths. Growing up, Ross Loufbourrow thought of ADHD as his greatest weakness. It was only once he graduated college and began his career that he discovered ADHD wasn’t a weakness – it was a super power. Ross shares his story on this week’s podcast.

In an age of email and LinkedIn, networking has never been easier. But networking has also become a dirty word. It means bothering people for favors or having them bother you, and knowing all the time that neither of you has any interest in actually getting to know the other person. Not surprisingly, this kind of transactional networking doesn’t really work. On the podcast this week, I chat with Darrah Brustein about her approach to networking by pursuing meaningful professional relationships.

One of the greatest assets that you can have in pursuing a career change is a support network of people who understand why career change is so important to you, and why you need their help to get through it. But creating this network may require some uncomfortable conversations. On the podcast this week, I chat with my former client Rebecca Maddox about how she built her support network, and the role that it played in her career change experience.

Career change means leaving an established routine for something unknown, which is scary and, let’s face it, risky. That’s why I love career experiments as a way to learn about different organizations and roles so you can try before you buy and make sure a new organization or a new role will truly be a fit before you commit to it. On this week’s episode, I chat with my HTYC colleague Lisa Lewis about the benefits of career experiments and how to design career experiments that work for you.

Over the course of our careers, as we grow, evolve, reach different stages in our lives, what once seemed like a dream job may stop feeling that way. And that’s great! Because it’s an opportunity to learn and explore who we are and what we want now, and then go get it. Kristy Wentz worked in PR for 20 years. And she loved it, until she didn’t. When she finally decided to move on, she created her own role that combined her favorite parts of PR… plus travelling and tasting wine. Not bad, right?

But, you want to know the weirdest part? By resisting being your most authentic self at all times (because of fear) we are ensuring that we stay unhappy by default. Jenny hated her job, but was afraid to look for a new role for fear of letting other people down, taking a step back in her career and losing the benefit of her education. Three years later, she landed her ideal role.
