Laura Parker, Lead Customer Account Manager
on this episode
Many of the people that we have worked with here at HTYC tend to go through several career changes on their own. They try many of the traditional job search methods, and they don’t see lasting results. Usually, they start excited about their new role, but then, at some point, start realizing that something is off. Sometimes the role or company doesn’t match your values. Sometimes the role doesn’t match your strengths.
Meet Laura. She used to work for a global law firm for 12 years, and made a change to this technology company 2 years ago. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she needed to make another change.
What you’ll learn
- Why Laura felt she needed to leave Law in the first place.
- What to do if you find yourself unhappy (like Laura)after making a career shift.
- How Laura figured out what she needed to do next in order to be happy in her career.
I think one of the reasons the podcast has been so helpful to me is because you talk to people in different roles, and all of a sudden I have exposure to people in different roles. Talking about why they got there and what they like about it.
I wanted to thank you because you have helped me land a job that is more fulfilling in every way than a job I thought I could have had before I met you. The work you did and the techniques you taught me literally changed my life.
The transition was so much easier than the last and so much more gratifying because of all that I learned with HTYC
