‘The two Rs’ of job seeking

  • Reflection. Take time to pinpoint what your values are in your career: What skills and strengths do you have? What do you still want to grow? And what feels like the right move?
  • Research. Align your vision with research. Google what companies and industries make sense. Learn whether you need to go back to school, and if so, what programs would be best suited.

If finding a new job sounds overwhelming, think practically about how you can insert yourself into an area where you might seem like an outsider.

Instead of "fake it until you make it," it's better to believe in yourself and your capability. No employer expects you to have 100% of the qualifications.

It is good to dip your feet in before the big switch. It doesn't hurt to do a side hustle while performing a full-time job. For example, if you're dreaming of becoming an interior designer, ask friends if they know someone looking for help redoing a room.

Any time there's a crisis, it can spark self-evaluation. We can wonder where we are in our life and career. Are we doing things that feel fulfilling and challenge us?
