Will Work for Dignity

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: Many moons ago, as a recent college grad, I began my first professional job search. It was frustrating, lonely, and filled with rejection. I was a teacher in a town where no teachers were being hired.

After months into the process, panicked about what would happen, someone asked me how it was going. 15 minutes later I realized I had talked nonstop with nothing remotely positive to say. I knew my friend regretted asking the question. It was a wake up call to me.

I found a job and began moving in a new path, outside the teaching world and into business, and I never looked back.

People ask me daily for career advice. I’ve even helped a few to land the next job or to get a promotion, because I love to see people find joy in something that is such a large part of our lives.

Tomorrow I will launch registration for a free virtual conference for job seekers that I have been working on for months. “Shock Your Job Search Potential” will air November 6-8, with 15 phenomenal speakers on everything from resume writing, to nailing the interview to using mindfulness to manage nervousness. This has been a labor of love that I can’t wait to share.

A job search can be lonely. Hopefully, however, this will prove that you aren’t alone.
