EP 110: Meghan’s Story: After An Unsuccessful Job Search, How She Transitioned From Retail Regional Director To Financial Strategy Consultant
Manage episode 290040178 series 2503879
What makes for a genuinely fruitful job search? Too many women apply themselves to work, send out their resumé left and right, leverage their connections…and wind up with nothing to show for it. When that happens, it's a perfect opportunity to take a step back and do some thinking on what you bring to the table - and what an ideal role should look like to you.
After being put on leave presented the opportunity to reevaluate her career, Meghan began to notice the gap between her desire for something different and a lack of understanding about what that "something" might be. But with a little bit of support and a lot of newfound clarity, Meghan was able to put herself on a path that led to not only a better job but skills and clarity that will carry through her entire career. In this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake and Meghan cover how being furloughed and falling back into an unproductive job search cycle helped Meghan find support and figure out what she wanted, the tools, life skills, and mindset shifts that led her to greater clarity, and how a new, more profound understanding of her value has led to a one-in-a-million dream role and unshakeable confidence. Tune in for a story that will pull you out of the endless chore of sifting through job postings and help you focus on what you need to get you into your ideal position.
What You’ll Learn:
- How a firsthand look at the natural work-life balance in action sparked new ideas in Meghan about what career fulfillment might look like
- What you should be able to showcase during a successful job interview (hint: it's not results and statistics from your previous position)
- Why the total picture presented by Meghan's experience and her skill set was the deciding factor that got her ideal job - even though the individual pieces of her resumé didn't seem like a match
- And much more!
"I'm super excited about that opportunity just to learn more and grow into the position that I have now. But I also have sort of an underlying sense of confidence about what even my next role is going to be because I know what I'm looking for, I know how to articulate my success, and I feel empowered to try new things in the future. So, that sense of fulfillment is inspiring for me." —Meghan
