Once you’ve decided to make a career change, there are a lot of things to consider, and possibly several roadblocks and mental barriers to overcome. Often, people allow their own fears to stand in the way to make that change. You know that you want to change – or NEED to change – but you don’t see how you can actually pivot to where you want to go.
Over the years of working with people, it’s been proven that the hard work, the endless days and sleepless nights, and the energy it took to put in the work to make a successful transition in their career is worth it in the end.
What you’ll learn
- How to get out of your own way when faced with needing to make a change.
- The importance of identifying your signature strengths.
- Why you need to evaluate your values, wants, and needs.
- How to actually reach out to the right organizations (to get a response).
I stumbled across HTYC through an article and it gave me hope again. After a Strengths Finder review session with your career coach and the Figure Out What Fits course, I've finally admitted to myself what I really want to do, what I really want out of life, and have made a decision.
It’s a lot of self-reflection and honesty and looking at things differently and being willing to be open to what our inner self is truly saying instead of what everyone says it should be.
I can't thank Happen to Your Career enough for giving me all the tools and resources I needed to understand my strengths and help define how those can best be used within my company.
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!
