Melissa in Fort Lauderdale calls into The Ken Coleman Show to ask Ken about making a transition in her career. She’s not alone -- 70% of people are unhappy with their job. Finding a career you’re passionate about that uses your natural gifts, excites you, and mirrors your values leads to a more rewarding life.
Ken breaks down how to find the right job when you want to make a change.
Start by asking yourself 3 questions: What do I need to learn to be qualified? How much will that cost? How long will it take?
Once you get qualified, it’s all about finding opportunity. It’s something Ken likes to call The Proximity Principle. Right people + right places = job opportunities. In order to have the opportunity to do what you love, you must be around the people doing it and in the places where it’s happening.
Forget the traditional career advice you’ve heard! Networking, handing out business cards and updating your online profile do nothing to set you apart from other candidates.
Life’s too short for you to be stuck in a career that doesn’t make you happy. It’s time to discover what job is right for you.
