Career Change: The Questions You Need to Ask Yourself Now

Laura Sheehan gives a talk at TEDxHanoi. She makes you start thinking as she discusses her experiences in her career.

There are three main points that she presents to get you evaluating your role in your life.

  1. Be open and ready for change - It is commonly accepted that an individual will have 15 or more careers / person.
  2. Embrace the experiences, ditch the title. - One must adapt your skills (What are the skills that you consistently use in every thing you do.) Each job is a part of your portfolio, just like an artist.
  3. The third point is a critical one and truly gets one to focus on action for your next change. You can learn all about it in the video.

I will leave you with two great questions to ask others to help you grow. “How did you come to be here? If you could do anything, what would it be?”

Make meaningful connections to land a job. Most jobs filled by personal connections. Ask questions and seek advice.

Feel free to provide me feedback on my contact page.

The video is 11:55 minutes long.

Here’s How These Hawaii Workers Are Navigating The Pandemic Economy

Brittany Lyte developed this article forHonolulu Civil Beat. It discusses how three in Hawaii have adjusted due the the pandemic.

So many people have been impacted by COVID in more ways than one. In addition to the sickens and deaths, so many have had their livelihoods taken away. This article tells how three have made adjustments.

Marni Kaduce was a fire dancer at a tourist luau. When the tourist went away, so did her job. She has a side job working as a massage therapist out of her home, but that has been impacted too.

She examined her options and wants to move away from tourist dependent jobs. So she invested in a certification course as a certified nurses aide. It offers her the opportunity to help others and not be dependent on tourism.

Two other stories are presented here.
