Find your dream job without ever looking at your resume

Lauren Berman Fortgang talks about the best way to figure out what to do next in your career in another great TEDx Talks. She brought out some interesting points.

Usually, we look to our resume to see what we have done. We feel that will lead us. But not always.

Lauren says that we should look to who you are, not what you have done. She calls it your Life Blueprint.

So her feeling is that you should try to figure our WHY you work. Her key point:

  • Something from your past recognized for its true significance combined with your skill set of today equals your satisfying new chapter.

Her summary point is that career satisfaction comes not from what you do, but from who you get to be while you are doing it.

This is a great video and well worth viewing.

The video is 11:29 minutes long.
