The road less traveled

The road less traveled

Choosing a nontraditional career path isn't the easiest approach, but it's one that makes job candidates more appealing to a smart recruiter.

It is natural to experience anxiety when choosing the road less traveled. This anxiety can be used as an opportunity to learn and grow personally and professionally. The key is to use the discomfort productively and master overwhelming situations.

Don't pretend that you don't have obligations outside of the office. Instead, set expectations at work and home to achieve enough balance to thrive in each environment.

By acknowledging your anxiety and moving through the discomfort, you learn how to manage it instead of letting it control you.

A lesser-known company will most likely have more learning opportunities where you can challenge yourself and broaden your scope.

Keep in mind that there's no such thing as a perfect leader. It often means recognizing and learning from the strengths and weaknesses of whoever your leaders are and translating it into skills you can use in the future.

Doing the unexpected feeds the idea that you understand what real work looks like, creates a healthy culture, and established your role as a leader.
