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 aver…

I am loving today’s topic because it’s diving into a question that takes a lot of foresight to answer correctly for yourself. It’s the question of whether a job change, or a career change would best resolve the tension you may be experiencing in your work life. So without further ado, let’s get into it. In this episode I’ll share: How to know you’r…
 
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. They had been applying to dozens of jobs without hearing back from employers or being offered an intervie…
 
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,…

This is a question I’ve seen posed a lot on LinkedIn and in articles during the Covid pandemic. When the effects of the virus reached the economy, many people lost their jobs and many companies put their hiring plans on hold. However, while the circumstances of the pandemic economy are unique, the experience of applying to jobs and not hearing back…

The past week I’ve been reflecting a lot on what this past year of starting and building my business has been like. Right now, I’m in a pretty good place. I feel confident in my role as a coach and have seen my clients succeed again and again. But it felt a little cheap to just call it all positive success when the reality is that most of the year …

Today’s topic and episode is blowing my mind. There are pieces of it that tie into every past season of the Career Foresight podcast as well as providing insight for the future of work. Saying, “I’m excited,” is an understatement. I’m going back to my podcasting roots on this episode by focusing the discussion on findings from a research article. I…
 
The reason I decided to share this episode is because I have been outraged and extremely disappointed by some of the business I’ve worked with recently. I have learned a lot from these mistakes, and it has been humbling and embarrassing. As a small business owner who works primarily with 1-on-1 coaching clients, customer service and satisfaction is…
 
There has been a lot of talk about what life will look like post-COVID-19 lockdown. Recently, what has been most compelling to me about the future is how this experience will shape our relationship with control. The COVID-19 pandemic has been eye-opening for everyone. It has certainly provided an excellent opportunity to evaluate our expectations f…
 
I’ve made a lot of voluntary career changes in the past five years. But the first career change I made after graduating college was anything but voluntary. I was let go instantly, without any notice. I can still remember the feeling of panic that hit me when I heard the news. I wouldn’t have been able to recognize it at that time, but being let go …
 
I saw a meme that said today was March 97th, and I thought, “Yes! That is exactly what today feels like.” The days are long when you’re quarantined. They’re even longer when your mind is anxious, you’re lonely, or you're juggling multiple responsibilities like caring for children and doing your job from home. I’ve talked with several people in the …

In 2020, I decided to stop using Instagram for both personal and business purposes. The main reasons were my pursuit of mental sanity and peace, and to focus on building my business in more sustainable ways. The reason I’m including this episode in this season focused on the future or work topics is because it’s pretty countercultural. As more tech…

I went to my first real conference just over four years ago, and it changed my life. The conference was for female creative business owners and I had never felt so at home amongst strangers.

I frequently think: Comedians are the bravest people in the world. I mean, to get up on stage and try to be funny—the vulnerability and courage it takes to do that simply blows my mind!
