Let’s face it, having an executive bio may be the least of your concerns. You may be thinking that as long as you have a good cover letter, updated résumé, and a decent LinkedIn profile your job is done, right? Well, not quite. There’s more to a career branding portfolio than the big three. You’re missing your executive bio. So, what’s the difference? Your résumé is a fact-based, chronological business document while your LinkedIn profile is the best place to share your story in first-person language, show your personality, and build your network.   An executive bio will highlight who yo ..read more

Career Global Blog
by Niya Allen
11M ago
The fear of being visible is something we have all experienced at some point in our lives. For years I struggled with calling myself an industry expert. I had a severe case of imposter syndrome and felt like despite my impact as an employee and a growing list of satisfied clients, I felt like I couldn't compete with other more well-known coaches. I was scared to put myself out there. And too many talented women think this way. Despite having education, years of experience, and industry impact, we are afraid to have their voices heard, counted, and challenged. It's easier to remain in the ..read more

No matter what industry you’re in, you’ll find a common thread: a lack of women leaders and women leaders of color in the workplace. The state of women and WOC in the workplace has gotten even worse since 2020, and according to a report conducted by the National Women’s Law Center, women have lost over 5.3 million jobs since February 2020. However, according to a global study by the executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles, the number of women appointed to CEO positions doubled to 13 percent compared to just 6 percent in 2020.

Information vs. Transformation: How to Cut A Purposeful Path
Career Global Blog

One day, when cleaning my computer folders, I quickly realized I had an obscene number of eBooks, checklists, challenges, and other information related to everything from how to find your purpose in life to losing the last 10 pounds for summer. I was on the Internet for hours a day, every day, and I was a sucker for a good email newsletter freebie. As you can imagine, I quickly amassed a collection of these freebies that I opened no more than one to two times, and 99.9% of the information I never implemented. I was addicted to information that didn’t initiate a real solution to my problem. I ..read more

I’ll admit it, I’m a sporadic health nut – also known as a yo-yo dieter. I go through bursts of motivation where I cook every meal, guzzle a gallon of water a day, and work out four to five times a week, but within two months I’m back to junk food and deep-fried everything. The older I get, the harder it is to start again after I’ve fallen off the wagon. Not only is it an issue of motivation, but it’s also the feeling of failure I get from quitting and feeling even further behind. These days, more and more women want to return to the job market after a hiatus on their own terms, but they feel ..read more

The side hustle was no longer enough. The knowledge and strategies I’d mastered were bubbling up and with every client that I got results for, the more the office walls began to close in on me. I wanted to help more people achieve their brand goals on a full-time basis. To transition from corporate America to owning and running my own personal b ..read more

4 Tips To Set proper Expectations From Career Coaching Relationships

I don’t know about you, but right before I graduated college, my advisor suggested that I visit the career center to seek help with writing my resume, looking through the alumni job database, and working out any “real world” anxiety I had. Unfortunately, it was a robotic experience because I was one of many, and I didn’t get much out of it. Some people compare career coaching to hiring a personal therapist. We only do it when we’ve exhausted all of our options on our own and are stuck in a rut. Whatever the reason, it’s important to set proper expectations in order to avoid disappointment and ..read more

Career Global Blog

As a result of the recession in the United States caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, 5.4 million women lost their jobs compared to 4.4 million men. In addition, women of color, including black, Hispanic, and Asian, experienced higher unemployment rates than white women in 2020. The struggle to rebuild the economy from these massive losses continues in 2021, but with so many women out of the workforce compared to men, the implication that there is still a major financial disparity between the sexes – and between ethnicities – is undeniable.
