In this episode I talk about how to leverage your existing experience to transition into a new role.
So, you know you want to make a career move. But what next?
Most of our minds jump to thinking about what training, degree, course or programme we could take to make ourselves feel better equipped.
I see this happen all the time, but ask yourself – will that training course or degree equip you to do exactly what it is you want to do next?
Too often the answer is ‘no’, because you’re still feeling confused about what it is exactly that you want to do. A course or degree can seem like an easy option as you feel like you’re making progress (as well as buying yourself a bit of time!) but what actually works is taking the time to slow all the way down.
You need to stop and consider what it is you want to do. That means starting with assessing what hasn’t been working for you in your current role, and then assessing ideally what you want to be moving towards.
Rushing this part of the process doesn’t work, but if you take the time to do this part properly, you will be able to take aligned and strategic action.
You will also realise that you don’t actually need to take all those courses – you have gained valuable experience that can be applied and leveraged in your new role. It’s just up to you to identify and articulate this value and in this episode, I will show you how.
What you will learn:
- How to conduct a career audit
- What to consider when identifying your ideal role
- How to leverage your experience and your transferable skills
How to conduct a career audit – take the time to look at all the information you have in front of you before you make the decision about where you want to go next. Too many people skip this step and end up in another unfulfilling role.
What to consider when identifying your ideal role – there’s a few key things that you should consider when making a career move, and these will help you to decide what role you would find fulfilling and where you could make an impact.
How to leverage your experience and your transferable skills – you have so much value to bring to the table! All your years of experience and hard work can be leveraged for a new role. Listen in and I’ll show you how.
