I had a chance to give a presentation today to a group called Job Re-Joov. Carol Chenot leads a dynamic group to revitalize their job search efforts, and I was pleased to be able to be a part of it.
The presentation I gave was titled You are not your job title, and focused on how to broaden your job search well beyond the scope of what your last job paid you to do. The problem is this: Once you broaden the scope to be anything in the world, how do you know what to concentrate on?
Here’s the answer:
- What you like to do
- What you’re good at
- What others will pay you for
The good news is that YOU get to pick the balance between these three elements. No matter what you choose, if it’s the best for where you are right now, you can get behind that choice. It’s very empowering, and usually eye-opening.
So check out the slides, and if you’re in a position to need this kind of help right now, by all means contact Carol on the website.
