The Career Transition Playbook is a collection of exercises, lessons and personal stories I’ve collected from over 10 years of helping people make transitions in their careers and lives.
I’ve always been fascinated with the impossible and am a fan of the underdogs. Whenever people told me I couldn’t do something, that made me want to prove them wrong. When people tell me, “I can’t do this because of Y,” I want to help them change their mind.
I’ve seen amazing things happen. I’ve helped people land jobs at GE, McKinsey and The White House as well as make transitions from being a nurse to an IT consultant, a teacher to a researcher and a social worker to a technology recruiter. In addition, I’ve helped people later in their career shift to the next chapter in their life, figuring out the next step after being CEO’s, business owners and executives.
This e-book is based on the belief that deep reflection, getting out of your comfort zone and embracing vulnerability are the only options for building a life we find worth living. If you’re reading to be open and take some chances, let’s get started…
The e-book covers ten “chapters” each with lessons, exercises, and takeaways to help you make progress:
#1 What Matters (Values)
#2 Check Your Beliefs At The Door
#3 Research Potential Roles
#4 Track and Share
#5 Assess Your Strengths
#6 Upgrade Your Resume
#7 Share Your Story
#8 Tailor Your Story
#9 Activate Your Fans
#10 Hang In There (Apply, get rejected & stay resilient)
