Do you love your job? -  November 2014

Dear Colleagues and Clients:

On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your career satisfaction over the course of 2014?
It’s hard to believe we’re drawing to the end of another year. Now is a great time to pause, step back, reflect and assess where you are. Take some time to read 14 Strategies for Finding Your Career Groove and see what points resonate with you and use this as a jumping off point to reflect on what worked and what didn’t in 2014.
We’ve found taking time out for some “belly button gazing” when it comes to career/life planning to be invaluable. After this exercise, you may want to a) schedule a personal planning retreat, b) consider setting up an appointment with a career coach (read Why You Need a Coach, but Probably Don’t Know It, or c) sitting down with your partner or a friend to share your thoughts.
"The minute you begin to do what you really want to do, it's really a different kind of life." ~ Buckminster Fuller

Career Management

For an easier job search: leverage your membership in professional organizations. Join the right groups, get involved and utilize those relationships (don’t just join to put an acronym on your resume). These professional organization connections really pay off when you start interviewing. These organizations can also accelerate your knowledge base and help you hone other communications skills.

Need quick help preparing for your next annual performance review, an interview, resources for starting a new business, assistance jump starting your job search or creating more balance in your life? Consider setting up a phone or email coaching session. Convenient, personalized and affordable.
