Career is a major part of life and it's a blessing to work. Having a career that's purposeful can invigorate and inspire your entire life. To live in integrity means that your career pursuits are aligned with your life goals. Identify what would actually inspire and satisfy you, and confidently make important decisions to get there.
I need a job. I want a change.
Exploring options can be exciting but also can bring confusion. Be clear about who YOU are, articulate what you're looking for [through resume, LinkedIn, cover letters, interviews], and discern opportunities wisely so you don't waste time on distractions. Instead of going "backwards" and trying to fit what employers want, focus on pursuing opportunities where you will thrive and be valued.
Am I still in the right place? Something's missing.
Clarify where you are today, decide where you want to be, and map out the steps to get there. Evaluate what you're doing out of obligation and what is purposeful; define your values and career goals in light of societal pressures & external influences. Identify what’s out of alignment and be equipped to make necessary or bold changes with integrity.
I want to develop my skills as a professional.
Pursue the career path that is truly right for you, one that honors your values and needs. Improving communication, performance, visibility, balance -- strengthen the skills for your promotion or career goals in ways that are authentic to you. For more examples, check out the Leadership page.
