Is the Company a Good Fit for YOU?

Anyone who’s had either a great boss, or a bad boss, knows how important workplace relationships are for feeling happy at work. But it can be really challenging to assess what a workplace is like, and how people interact with each other from the outside looking in when you’re career changing.  With the people I coach, those who have experienced negative work environments in the past have a lot of trepidation about starting over at a new company. “What if I end up in the same situation I just left?” “How can I know if my boss will really have my back?” “The company culture sounds great on ..read more

Peace Through Prioritization

I’m pretty sure that peace is one of those things that you could never have too much of! We could all use more peace in our lives, right? Especially now as we’re going on month 9 of the Covid pandemic and quarantine, and things are looking worse for the next few weeks.  Prioritization may seem like a funny thing to talk about when so many of the things we enjoy in life are no longer possible or guaranteed. However, the skill of prioritization can be applied to mindset, thoughts and goals in the same way it can be applied to our time or activities. And by doing that, we can experience grea ..read more

Positioning Yourself on Paper in Your Job Search
Career Foresight | Future of Work for Creative Professionals
by Jennifer Spoelma
2y ago
I hear push back from clients all the time about if spending their time writing customized resumes and cover letters is really worth it. Their past experiences tell them it isn’t, and I have to ask them to trust me.  What they find is, learning to position themselves on paper is actually very rewarding, genuine and gets results. Compared to the average job searcher who sends out dozens of job applications, my clients, on average, only need to apply to two jobs before being offered an interview.  And, maybe the best part is, when they get that interview offer they feel ready. The effo ..read more

Over the past two weeks I’ve hosted a series of free calls for people who were struggling to get traction in their job search.  I decided to offer these free calls after seeing post after post on LinkedIn from people sharing similar experiences.

I decided to tackle this topic after receiving a great suggestion from my friend Kirsten. To help frame today’s discussion, I’m going read what Kirsten shared she feels is missing in the conversations and advice regarding careers:  I've been loving this idea of figuring out the skills and expertise you have, not just in your career but in your life, and how you can combine those and transfer into other jobs or careers you might not have known were a good fit for you.
