Setting someone up for success with a new or improved resume is always gratifying. However, it is most rewarding when the process involves a significant career transition. Often, clients that fall in this category are competing for a big promotion or, perhaps, transitioning away from a company that is eliminating jobs. More and more, though, projects look a lot like Angela's, a client I recently worked with.
When Angela contacted me, she was ready for an entire career shake-up. She couldn't continue to go through the motions of working in a position that ignited no passion – that didn't call upon any of her true strengths. That's a tough reality to wake up to day after day. Well, I just heard back from Angela; she's doing exactly the work she wants to be doing in the Social Responsibility department of a company that she had targeted.
Are you invigorated as you head off to work each day? If not, lean into the possibilities that exist when you make the decision to put your strengths to work in the right place.
