Career Change Stalled? How To JumpStart Your Search By Cathy Goodwin, Ph.D. www.MidlifeCareerStrategy.com
Is this you … • Started searching for a career, checked out some options … and nothing seems to click? • Wondering if you’ll find a new career that makes you happy? • Feel like there’s a block between you and your next career?
Is your block emotional or career related? I am NOT a therapist, counselor or mental health professional of any kind. Here’s my take based on experience and opinion. View slide
Emotional Blocks vs. Career Blocks • Emotional blocks – Childhood messages • “You should be a lawyer…” • “You’re not the successful one.” • “Jobs are just for money. It’s just a job.” – Current challenges • Recent emotional trauma (such as a loss or divorce) • Family pressures (especially spouse) • Underlying anxiety or depression View slide
Emotional Blocks vs. Career Blocks • Career blocks – Not knowing what to do next – Not getting good results from search – Needing guidelines for networking and info interviews – Needing realistic understanding of different fields – Frustrated with researching opportunities
Emotional OR Career Blocks • Don’t want to do ANYthing … just lie on the couch • Don’t look forward to today’s activities • Want to spend more time doing something that isn’t career related: family, music, working out …
Emotional Blocks vs. Career Blocks • Emotional blocks require psychotherapy with a licensed professional. Not me! • Career blocks require – A career coach/consultant – Self-help – Mentors
Some Common Career Blocks • Career change vs. career success • Nonlinear/ No markers/ small increments • Environment – Geographic location – No time (60 hour week)
What you can do for Career Blocks • Try out new careers in small steps - Be open to opportunities - Recognize bridge jobs - Use weekends, evenings and vacations
What you can do for Career Blocks • Set realistic expectations – Anticipate the downsides – Decide how you will handle them – Decide what you can live with
What you can do for Career Blocks • Keep perspective – Not like marriage or parenthood – Move in small steps – Allow time … and more time
