Here are the summaries of the key takeaways, and be sure to check out the MovingWorlds Institute for more guidance on how to accelerate your progress towards a more impactful career!
Step #1: Orient Your Career
Don’t just jump at the first opportunity you see. Take time to evaluate the type of work, team, and contributions you can make in different roles, industries, and organizations. Then take little steps to validate you’re going in the right direction by observing, job-shadowing, consulting with, and speaking with others to confirm.
Step #2: Build Your Skills & Profile with Real Experience
Certifications are useful, but real-world experience and a history of delivering results is the most important thing you can have on your resume. You can use volunteer time, vacations, or extended leave to get actual work experience by volunteering your skills in areas.
Step #3: Adapt Your Professional Story & Resume
Industries and jobs are evolving quickly, and your job title might be, too. Take the time to research how your profile and experience maps to the places you want to work, and then position your story so that people in that location clearly understand how you can add value there.
And one more – if you go at the above steps with a partner or cohort, you’ll be much more likely to make it through. Change is hard, and having a support network makes it more possible, and more fun.
