Have you suddenly quit a job only to be asked why?❓❓
When I suddenly left a ‘good’ federal job for a higher paying (albeit not as secure contract job), my co-workers thought I was crazy which a capital C. I had 10+ years of tenure. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I left a position with no upward mobility in the short term, to accept a much higher paying contract position that took me in a whole different career direction. I became a Risk Reduction Manager on a very large Army installation. I briefed Army military commanders on the ‘risk’ statistics of their units. That launched me into a career as an Employee Assistance Program Manager (back in federal government service) at a higher pay level.🎉
🚀I’ve done that again with my new course – How to Write Your Resume in a Weekend for Busy Professionals that launched this week.
Even students in the Beta program asked me, “Why would a professional resume writer create a course that could affect their own income?”
It doesn’t make sense. 👀
But it was the perfect decision.
💻I am helping MORE people by offering a very affordable resume writing program for jobseekers, new graduates, return to work parents, and those determined to write their own resume. My resume business has actually increased significantly at the same time. And the blessing is that now I have something for everyone.
Sometimes doing things the same old way does not lead you where you want to go or help you to impact more people. Sometimes you have to get off the beaten path. Take the road less traveled. Explore new opportunities.
I have these conversations with my clients all the time. While we are talking about their career direction I often ask, “Have you thought about this…? Have you thought about using all that knowledge and experience to become a trainer? Have you thought about applying your skills in a different way in a different kind of job?”
Many of my clients have made successful and rewarding career changes. Sometime you need turn your challenge on its head and look at it from a new perspective. 🎯
I want to say thank you to everyone who asked me ‘why’ because it clarified MY WHY which is a big part of my Resume Writing program – helping you discover your why. ❤
I’ve priced the Resume Writing Program at $197 for a Limited Time and the 10+ years of value packed inside this course is easily 10x that price. But that’s not the point. The point is making a course that is available to everyone who is dedicated, passionate, and even nervous about writing their own resume.
So, next time you are thinking about making a job or career decision – make sure to take some time and consider your ‘Why’ and then make the JUMP if it is right thing for you and the right time.
Since you’ve stayed with me to this point – here is a little sneak peek inside the course. I hope to see you inside – you’ll be glad you made the investment in your future, or for your graduating kids, or even for a friend or family member. You ALWAYS need an updated resume. 📄
