Get Career Happy
Do you remember how you first answered the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Chances are, your answer was something like fireman, ballerina, or cowboy. Silly, right? Very often, our earliest career thoughts are our best- till they get squashed by well-meaning others in our lives. Most of us have career goals or dreams that have been tucked away. What if you could get them out and look at them again, and maybe even find a way to live them? Whether you are in a traditional job, a job search, looking for a career change or just not as happy at work as you could be, check in with Julie to find out how your career dreams might just become your career reality- in ways you never imagined!
Get Career Happy – Tattoos & iPhones or Grey Hair & 8 Track Cassettes? Generational Differences and your Job Search
All human beings have biases, and your interviewer is a human being. Are you Boomer, seen as technologically incompetent? Are you a Gen X’er, aka a slacker, or a Gen Y’er, who just wants to have fun? It may not be fair, but who told you hiring was fair? Join Julie and Robin Throckmorton, author of “Bridging the Generation Gap: How to Get Radio Babies, Boomers, Gen X’ers, and Gen Y’ers to Work Together and Achieve More”. to find out what all this fuss is about- and how you can rock your interview- regardless of your generation’s tag.
If you’ve ever been in a job search, you know that it is filled with ups and downs, but the downs can seem longer, and more frequent. The temptation to give up, to embrace the negative can be overwhelming, and although it is a challenge to keep your mind and your emotions in the right place, you must. Jobs are not going to come looking for you hiding under the covers; employers want to hire people who are upbeat and confident. Join Julie and her guest, therapist Julie Lingler for information and ideas you can use to navigate the emotional landscape of your job search.
