Whew! That is a of hours.
If you hate your job, you feel every one of them. It doesn’t have to be that way. Whether you are working for yourself or for someone else, you can find a career that is fulfilling and fun!
My approach to career transition is easy to follow and maximizes results.
1. Set up for success
Transitioning your career is a project that needs to be planned and tracked to get the results you want. How will you hold yourself accountable?
2. Know Thyself
Evaluating values, skills, strengths, preferences, and goals is one of the most crucial stages. Do you have a clear understanding of what really brings you joy in a career?
3. Position Yourself
Learning to "sell" your skills effectively gives you the confidence necessary to land a role that brings you joy. Is your resume positioned for the role you want rather than the role you have?
4. Execute your plan
Many people jump strait here. Missing steps 1-3 often means we are running from something rather than running to something. What are you running to?
5. Land your role
You found it! A job that will bring you joy! It isn't over. You still need to negotiate compensation and coordinate logistics. How will you navigate the actual transition?
6. Keep the Momentum
Continuous joy in a career requires nourishment. It also requires an exit strategy. What is your nourishment plan and exit strategy?
