"First to mind when asked what 'the cloud' is, a majority respond it’s either an actual cloud, the sky, or something related to weather."

Career Change: The Questions You Need To Ask Yourself Now | Laura Sheehan | TEDxHanoi
Laura Sheehan provides an interesting view of career change. You will enjoy it.
She asks: If you could do anything what would it be?
You really can find success anywhere. The key element to succeed are:
- Be open and ready to change — In 2007 the New York Times published that when it comes to careers change was the only constant. They said people would change jobs an average of 3 times. By 2010, it was 7 times. By 2015, it jumped to 10. In 2018, it was thought to be 12 - 15 times.
- Embrace the experiences, not the job title. —You are adapting a set of skills to meet a need. People are not doing the same job at different locations. What are the skills that you consistently use in what you are doing?.
- Make meaningful connections —That is Key!—Actual conversations can enable and empower you to find success. 85% of jobs are still
found by word of mouth. Plug in with people. Meet with people who’s job interests you. Learn from them. .
So her suggested questions to ask to evaluate a career change are:
- How did you come to be here?
- If you could do anything what would it be?

CAREER CHANGE NEWS
Micaela Marshall’s short article provides a lot of information.
Talk about a shift! This is one for sure!
After earning his PhD in education and worked as an associate dean, he decided he wanted to change careers.
Why? For Dr. Richard T. Montgomery there was one main reason.
His role as associate dean did not fit into what the life he needed. He wanted to spend more time with his 10 year old son, Richie, who was born with a rare neuromuscular condition called congenital fiber type disproportion myopathy. As a result, Richie needs care around the clock.
Montgomery originally planned to open his own business, but COVID changed all of that. He decided to do something he enjoyed doing. So he rolled in coding bootcamp.
He is on his way to a software development career.
Check out his article here.
