Currently, I'm in Santa Barbara finishing up a business trip. It's been great because it's been a first for me. I was flown here to shoot a Salary Negotiation course that will be used by e-Learning companies in the US.
Although its been great to be here, I've just been holed up in the room working because I've had some difficulties with family that joined me on this trip.
I know that some of you can relate to being focused on your search but also having to navigate potentially draining and distracting home situations as well.
I wanted to create this email to not only relieve some of the tension happening on my end but also create some quick fixes for you guys that may be going through something similar as well.
Thank God you couldn't keep that job. Thank God.
I'm sorry but can we thank god for all the crappy situations we 'suffered' through that brought us into a world we had NO IDEA was available for us?
Be grateful for that uncomfortable work situation you're in because if it wasn't there...it wouldn't have brought you here...to read this post...and to realize that there is NO REASON why you should still be working for a company / in a role you hate in a post Covid 2020 world.
You can absolutely be a bartender and turn into a Data Analyst (working with job seekers doing that right now)
....be a Physics / Mathematics Teacher and turn into a Research Analyst (working with job seekers doing that right now)
...run from a 4-5 year career in investment bank into a fun role within a FinTech firm (my favorite clients actually )
I feel slightly sleazy saying this but you can 'sell' yourself into any role. You can get what you want.
Create your plan.
And execute it.
No excuses and most...
