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

I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard someone say “work is supposed to be hard that’s why it’s called work” or even “work is supposed to suck.” It’s the mindset that we have been engrained to have as a society. Luckily this narrative is very misguided, and people are starting to realize that work doesn't actually have to suck. Natalie had, what many people would call, a “great job.” She was learning and growing, had great coworkers and mentors, and was making great money, but ultimately she wasn’t happy. In this episode, Natalie discusses how she figured out the solution to her career unhappiness was switching industries, and how she made it happen.

What you’ll learn 

  • Why switching industries may not be as drastic of a career change as you may think
  • How to conduct career experiments through reachouts 
  • How to negotiate in a way that feels true to yourself 
  • How to use your current network to find your ideal role
