What do you do when you decide your current job no longer fits you?
There is a shift that happens for a lot of people: Suddenly a role you thought you’d be in for the long haul no longer seems like the right fit for you.
Sometimes it’s a priority shift, something happens externally, and you decide it’s time for a change. Maybe you brought a new child into the world or you’ve started missing too many of your kid’s sporting events.
Sometimes it’s an internal shift, a sudden misalignment of values, where you no longer feel good about the work you are doing.
So you’ve decided it’s time for a change! Making that decision alone can be life-changing (and it’s worth celebrating!) but it can also be somewhat terrifying to actually take the steps necessary to leave.
HTYC career coach, Megan Crawford worked in recruiting for over 12 years until she realized her role no longer aligned with her values or what she wanted out of her life. On today’s episode, she discusses her career change journey from recruiting to coaching, including tactical steps you can take if you’re in a similar position!
What you’ll learn
- How to use fear of the unknown and uncertainty to fuel your career change
- What to do when your new career isn’t what you thought it would be
- The importance of acknowledging that you’re no longer in a career that fits you
I’ve been offered the job! It was great having the opportunity to speak with you prior to my interview. It enabled me to highlight my strengths as part of the conversation and I was able to be clear about my enthusiasm for opportunities to be proactive versus reactive. I also highlighted my desire to provide positive individual experiences. Our discussion not only assisted me in the interview but it also helped to increase my confidence!
One of the most key things we talked about was feeling instead of thinking, I would think all the time, about this and that, I would just take time to feel. That is the key for really understanding where you are supposed to be and what you love.
