Making a strategic career change

Finding a new job is pretty challenging. Making a career change is twice as hard. But sticking to one type of role for an entire career is impossible for most of us. In order to continuously learn and grow, we must stretch ourselves by trying new positions, levels, companies, regions and industries.

Networking from home

While some of you have probably wished to work remotely at one point or another, I’m sure this is not exactly how you imagined it. As we’re adjusting to the new normal, one thing has become abundantly clear — connection is paramount.

Stephanie’s sweet success

Stephanie joined our program after losing her job. She had a challenging experience from the start. Only a month into the job, her role changed and didn’t leverage her expertise. Stephanie was underutilized and unfulfilled. To make matters worse, the corporate culture was not collaborative. It didn’t take long to realize she had made a mistake.

Staying on the path of well-being

This is truly an extraordinary time — and one I never thought would happen. Yet here we are. While I’m often the voice of positivity, it’s been a challenge to not be affected by the wave of fear and panic. Of course some fear is good — we’re wired to fear in order to survive. But there is a pretty thick line between fear that helps and fear that hurts. The way I think about it, is if I start to worry about things I can’t control — I know it’s affecting well-being and it’s time to pivot.

Acing your video interview

This is a truly unique time and an adjustment for all of us. It certainly makes me grateful for a lot of things I take for granted. When it comes to work, I’m especially grateful for the tech that keeps me connected to our clients. My phone, email, video conferencing apps and wifi — all make it possible to communicate, collaborate and prep.
