Dedicating time to plan your career is a great long-term investment.

In this podcast episode, I address one of the biggest issues I discuss with prospective coaching clients when they want to get fast results in job searching or career progression. I ask them to forget about me (i.e., the coach) for a moment. And think: are you dedicating time to this project? If not, are you willing to? Because coaching is an excellent investment, but it will only work if you incorporate into your life a new routine to sustain your career, ensure you progress towards your goals, and keep the opportunities coming to you in the long term.

I get it: It's challenging to know what to do and how to spend your time:

  • Should you be on Zoom having virtual coffees with your connections?
  • Or is it better to spend your time searching and applying for jobs online?
  • How can you look for work when you have a full-time job?

It's exhausting! Sometimes the anxiety and lack of confidence can be debilitating. And when you finally get around to applying for a great role...crickets! You hear nothing back. So much time wasted for nothing. At times, you just want to give up.

4 Time management tips for job hunters and career planners:

In this episode (number 93), I provide four tips so you can find the time, use it well, and incorporate career planning into your routine:

  1. Make a date with yourself
  2. Make things easier and more streamlined with templates
  3. Find time to test, plan, and prepare
  4. Be in the moment

Imagine job hunting without stress, confusion, and overwhelm.

The information overload we experience daily drains our capacity to think and plan strategically for our life, career, and future happiness. Job hunting and career planning can be exhausting. When you're doing it on your own, the anxiety and lack of confidence are debilitating.

But it’s 100% possible to job hunt with confidence and take control of the outcomes for your future career steps. I know this because I have plenty of statements from my clients to prove that my coaching framework wors. I’ve been in the same situation in my career, and I created a proven system to helps executives achieve their career goals.

If you are ready to take control of your career, I invite you to join my group coaching program. Enrolments are now open for a limited time, and this is the last group coaching for 2021. So if you want to get that new job or promotion this year, then this is your chance to navigate recruitment and selection with support, without overwhelming and guesswork. 

Podcast Episode Timestamps:

  • 07:44 - Make a date with yourself: once a day, week, quarter - schedule it
  • 11:37 - Prepare templates to support your career.
  • 13:04 - Test, plan, and prepare: things you can do when you have time and don’t need a job or promotion. 
  • 16:29 - Be in the moment.

About our guest, Michele Chevalley Hedge:

Michele Chevalley Hedge was previously a marketing manager, so she truly understands the needs of time-poor corporate executives who, family or not, want health but not hassle. Health magazine editors often introduce her as “the modern-day nutritionist – the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee.” She is not Paleo Pete, or I Quit Sugar but perfectly placed somewhere in the healthy middle.

Michele’s clinical practice and experience allow her to share stories of patients and their nutritional transformation, which give the audience goosebumps – the kinds of stories that can only be heard if you are at the coal face with clients. Women who say their addiction to food caused their divorce; executives who say they don’t like going to the boardroom without her five top tips; and politicians, and their families, who come to her wellness retreats. Recognizing her sensible approach to nutrition, four years ago, Wiley Publishing commissioned Michele to write Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies. 

Every week, Michele works with major banks in Australia – Westpac, CBA, ANZ, HSBC, and corporations like Apple, Dropbox, Dexus, News.com, MFAA, Women in Focus, ACCOR, Westfield, Department of Defence, Tourism Portfolio, Heart Research Australia, Cure Cancer, and schools and education events. She is the keynote speaker for the Heads of Schools of Australia and the Positive Schools Conference in Hong Kong. Michele is also an ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and the launch of THAT SUGAR FILM.

Michele is the Nature Care College Ambassador, Cure Cancer Ambassador, and Heart Research Institute Ambassador and consults for 100’s on international corporations. She recently sat alongside the Dalai Lama at a conference where she presented on ‘Vitality, Energy and Serotonin – It’s all in Your Food.’ Mental health and nutrition research is her passion, and she often declares, “It makes the New Yorker come out in her.”

Links mentioned in this episode:

  • Do you have training material ready for online teaching? Then, learn more about Kajabi, which is the platform I use and check if this is something you should invest in. I LOVE Kajabi and have built my entire website and learning programs using the platform. I have already converted many colleagues and coaches to using it. You can teach anything on Kajabi: music, farming, yoga... It handles everything: mailing this newsletter, CRM, payments, my website, and of course, my online teaching platform.*
  • Do you want to be coached by my coach? If so, join me and many others from May to July for a 3-month program designed to help you launch a product or service in 3 months! I have done so many programs, and this one is by far the one that worked best for me. It goes through all the steps you need to take, in real-time, with all the resources, templates, and tools you need. I will be doing it again, so we can be colleagues!*
  • Do you want a website? Here's my secret: Templates with everything you need: webpages, social media templates, all done for you, styled, branded, and easy to use. Yes, you can change the colors and photos.*
  • Do you hate sending emails backward and forward to book a meeting? If you have been spoiled for most of your career by having excellent EAs (guilty!) and all of a sudden you find yourself managing your own calendar, you have a newfound respect for the work they used to do for you, right? Many people like Calendly, but I'm a big fan of Harmonizely. It is effortless to use, translates well to different time zones, sends reminders, asks questions, and automatically sets up a zoom meeting. It's a blessing, and I can't live without it.*
  • A link to the episode about my career story: 62. My career story: From immigrant to CEO.
  • Book a free discovery call with me if you are considering getting a private coach to support your next steps.
  • The Optimized Job Search Workshop
  • The Optimized Job Search Schedule

*Because I'm such a big fan of the services above, and over time I have referred colleagues and clients to them, these businesses have been generous enough to offer me a commission. This means that if you use the links above, I will get a percentage of the sales, and there will be no additional cost to you. It goes without saying that I would not be recommending them if I did not 100% believed in them. In fact, I use them all in my all business.

About our guest, Ilana Kosakiewicz:

Ilana Kosakiewicz one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers. She is a wholefood lover, an entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.

Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now, and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.

Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle, and the moon. She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority. 

Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy, and zest so they can live authentic, content, and happy lives.

Originally from Gippsland Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen, and spending as much time at the beach as she can.

The Job Hunting Made Simple Online Course & Group Coaching Program

Job Hunting Made Simple is a 7-week online course + coaching program created by Renata Bernarde that shows you how to plan and advance your career in an intentional, inspiring, and fun way. It is a proven blueprint for creating a prosperous career and attracting your next job.

Looking for work and taking the next steps to advance your career can be a stressful and lonely experience. The information overload we experience every day drains our capacity to think and plan strategically for our lives, careers, and future happiness. The Job Hunting Made Simple program provides a framework to make sense of all the options, opportunities, and steps ahead in an intentional, inspiring, and simple way.

Job Hunting Made Simple was created for you if you are:

  • serious about your future career progression, but unsure how to achieve your goals
  • in-between jobs and not knowing if you're putting time and effort into the right strategies
  • returning to the job market after being without work for an extended time and feeling like the pandemic has taken away your confidence
  • with the same organization for a long time, and you haven't looked for work outside of your organization in a while. Or if you have, you've been unsuccessful. 
  • ready to look for new job opportunities, but can't find the time or focus on doing it!
  • you feel overwhelmed and pulled in different directions, and you wish you had guidance and a framework you could follow.

If this is you, then this program is for you. I look forward to seeing you on the inside!

66. What executives can learn from watching high-performance sports.

66. What executives can learn from watching high-performance sports.

January 25, 2021

In this episode, I’ll be sharing with you my observations of high-performance individuals. In this case, high-ranking tennis players and their teams, their coaches, family, doctors, physios – and draw learnings and ideas we can use in managing our careers and getting ready for job hunting and career progression.

I believe we can learn by observing, and not just by reading books or going to school. High-performance research studies, high-performing individuals, and teams have been topics I am interested in for over 15 years. I started paying more attention to sports performance when I wrote my Honours thesis and noticed a link in the bibliographical references in papers I was reading: management and psychology literature were referencing papers from sports and health journals.

The more I read, the more fascinated I became about using the learnings usually applied for high-performance tasks and activities such as sports, defence, and space travel. And applying it to highly stressful, endurance-type career situations we face so often. Still, we don’t realize they are indeed a) competitive and b) endurance events that require strategic planning and team support.

This episode was first aired as a Facebook Live Video during the 2020 Australian Open, held in Melbourne every January. If you have been following me, it will come as no surprise to you that I really enjoy watching tennis, and I have many times made analogies between the game of tennis and job hunting. I analyze many traits, behaviours, and strategies the players and their teams adopted, which are strongly correlated with their success or failure.

I hope you enjoy listening to this episode; lookout for another great one coming up next week!

65. How to avoid making mistakes: A disaster expert explains how to prepare for major career disruption - with Dr Gleb Tsipursky.

65. How to avoid making mistakes: A disaster expert explains how to prepare for major career disruption - with Dr Gleb Tsipursky.

January 18, 2021

“Our emotions, our intuitions, and our gut reactions will often lead us in the wrong direction,” said Dr. Gleb Tsipursky in my interview with him, recorded on Friday 27th of March 2020. Never have we ever in our lives, in this generation, at this point in time, wanted to know more about what to do, how to do it, and when will the threat of COVID-19 be over. All over the world, political leaders, scientists, health practitioners, businesses, and families, are struggling to find their feet and get a sense of direction amidst the threat of COVID-19. It is impacting our health and our economy like no other crisis we’ve ever seen before.

In this episode, I interview Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, a disaster avoidance expert, consultant, coach, speaker, and former academic with over 15 years of experience as a cognitive neuroscientist and behavioral economist. Gleb has written for major outlets such as Inc. Magazine, Time, Scientific American, Fast Company, and Psychology Today, and has been interviewed extensively on TV and podcasts. As CEO of Disaster Avoidance Experts, he has consulted and coached hundreds of clients worldwide, including large corporations such as IBM, Honda, and Wells Fargo. His academic career includes seven years as a professor at Ohio State University and dozens of peer-reviewed pieces published in leading academic journals. He authored the bestselling author of several books, such as “The Truth-Seeker’s Handbook,” “Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters.”

How did we connect, Gleb and me? When we booked our catch-up, the plan was to prepare you for redundancy and how job hunters can make the right decisions when emotions are high during a crisis or unexpected events. Little did we know we would be talking about avoiding disasters during the biggest disaster of our time.

So, what did we do? We quickly pivoted our chat and focused squarely on what is happening globally - the uncertainty and complexity of the COVID-19 pandemic, its effects on the economy, our work, or our livelihoods. Gleb helps us understand how to respond to threats effectively, make the right decisions, and prepare for things that can go wrong that we are not anticipating. At a time like this, his clients must be thinking, “how lucky are we that we’ve had Gleb on a retainer, right?!”. Yes, indeed!

And you will be pleased to know - I know I was - that many times during our conversation, I had my coaching framework validated over and over again by Gleb’s research and recommendations - that we need to think and plan long-term. We should focus and work strategically towards our goals to pragmatically develop a long term, sustainable career. I felt reassured that I’m tracking well in the support I’m providing you folks, my students, and clients. Together, we will get through this and be better positioned for the new world of work that will crystalize on the other side of this crisis. We’ve all heard this before; that crisis is both a threat and an opportunity. So we need to be ready to bypass the threats we face right now and those yet to come and use this hibernation time to prepare ourselves and update our toolkit to make the most out of the opportunities ahead.

In times of crisis, more often than not, we are overwhelmed with our emotions and base our decisions on what we feel is right. We are usually not prepared to deal with it and especially not make the right decisions that will benefit us for the long term. How can we make the right decisions, especially in times of crisis or when something unexpected happens, like COVID-19?

 

Here are some key takeaways from this interview:

Beware of these three cognitive biases: they are the specific errors we make because of how our brain is wired. They are the systematic patterns of making wrong decisions:

  1. Normalcy bias – where we feel like the future will be normal, that it will be like the past.
  2. Confirmation bias – where we tend to look for information that confirms our beliefs and ignore information that doesn’t.
  3. Optimism bias – where we tend to be way more optimistic about the future.

Ask yourself five questions to minimize risks when making important decisions:

  1. What important information didn’t I yet fully consider? What evidence then should I take into account?
  2. What dangerous judgment errors haven’t I addressed? What cognitive biases haven’t I considered?
  3. What would a trusted adviser tell you? What would they tell you about this situation?
  4. How have you addressed all the ways that this decision could fail?
  5. What would cause you to revise your decision? What would cause you to change your mind about whatever decision you’re making?

64. How to pivot your career during a crisis: Advice from “the new world of work” expert Marianne Roux.

64. How to pivot your career during a crisis: Advice from “the new world of work” expert Marianne Roux.

January 11, 2021

In 2020, we have talked about how the pandemic affects all areas of our lives, especially our work. Living and working from home, market disruption, and government interventions are now the new normal, at least until we control the outbreak and most likely up to the point where we have a wide distribution of an effective vaccine.

With that said, our world has changed. So, how is our new world of work going to look like? What challenges and opportunities will present us? In this episode, I spoke to Marianne Roux, who has over 25 years' experience as a New World of Work Strategist. Marianne helps leaders and HR executives understand how to adapt their organizations to the new world of work by training their leaders and teams and transforming their businesses. She is a regular keynote speaker, author, and business school lecturer and works pro-bono on developing women's entrepreneurial skills and alleviating poverty and trauma. Her work takes her to all corners of the Earth, including countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. She is highly regarded as an expert in her field. She is called upon to support large multinational organizations, governments, and non-profits in adjusting their business models, culture, and workforce to be more future-oriented and entrepreneurial.

Marianne helps us understand how to thrive during a crisis and how to pivot and develop our career to adjust to new working and living ways. 

 

Key advice from Marianne to thrive under crisis - be it COVID-19 or any other you may encounter in the future:

  • For a week or two, take time to get through the shock and the grief.
  • Sort out an area at home to be your home office, and make it a friendly and happy place.
  • Have a workday every day, give yourself a job title, continue learning, and continue to network and connect with others.
  • Schedule activities in your day to help keep your spirits up, like exercising and volunteering.
  • You are not on holiday: You're employing yourself into a job, and you've got to keep that mindset.

 

Marianne's foresight to help you plan for the next stages of your career:

  • The new world of work will most definitely include all things digital: from data analytics and design thinking; there are many free courses and public content you can access, so use this opportunity to update your skills.
  • If data is not your thing, focus on relationships: health care, aged care, and other sectors will require relationship management skills. 
  • Entrepreneurial skills are very important, especially in developing countries: use your youth and get them involved in your business idea. They understand digital and can help you build your success. 
  • Advice for career hunters in developed countries: There are opportunities in entrepreneurship, innovation, and how business and government work together. These are the areas that need much improvement.

63. Achieving financial and career goals - with Paul Burrows.

63. Achieving financial and career goals - with Paul Burrows.

January 4, 2021

For Paul Burrows, our guest today, the goal was to become financially independent and having the ability to make choices about where and when we wanted to retire or how much he and his wife wanted to work. Paul is now financially independent, and a few years ago, he decided it was time to retire. He has been a great mentor to other professionals. He takes a keen interest in career development, so I believe he is an excellent fit for this podcast, both with his career experience and knowledge and by having the right mindset of giving back and helping others achieve their best.

Here are some key take-ways from the interview with Paul:

1 - Redundancy experience:

  • Outplacement services only work to a certain point, but you need to be proactive and do the work yourself.
  • Be informed about what is going on in the corporate world: Paul reads the Australian Financial Review every day. Doing so during redundancy made him strategically choose his next steps.
  • Paul's goal was not to waste his redundancy: I believe he meant both the financial package and the opportunity to Reset His Career!

2 - Career Transition

  • If investing in education, do so for certifications and studies that are an absolute requirement for your career transition: Paul studied to become a Financial Planner, so in his case, the training was a requirement.
  • Understand the difference in status you will experience by shifting careers and sectors and being ok with it: It's a humbling experience.
  • Leverage from your previous career's strengths, your original DNA, to help you springboard and move faster in your new career. Once he gained initial experience as a Financial Planner in Paul's case, his business background got him higher-paying jobs.

3 - Retirement:

  • Test the waters before exiting the job market by doing contract roles and consulting.
  • Understand your personal needs: If you are like Paul's wife and the social interaction and work still brings you joy, financial independence gives you a choice to also continue working, if you wish to!

4 - Financial independence**:

  • Financial independence gives you a choice.
  • Reward yourself by saving, not spending.
  • It's never too late to start planning.
  • Set financial goals.
  • Understand that there will be sacrifices and that it can be tedious.
  • Wealth is not income – wealth is assets.
  • Paul's heroes have been professionals that, with average incomes, were able to achieve financial independence.

I hope you enjoyed this episode; lookout for another great one coming up next week!

**The information in this podcast is general and does not take into account your personal circumstances, financial needs, and objectives. Before acting on any information, you should consider if it is appropriate to you, and in particular, you should seek independent financial advice.

62. My career story: From immigrant to CEO.

62. My career story: From immigrant to CEO.

December 28, 2020

From a very young age, I remember my favorite play game was to pretend I was working. I was the teacher, the secretary, the horse-jumping instructor! My barbies were doctors and vets, and this was before you could actually buy a “professional” Barbie! My family had great aspirations for me, and those involved me getting a job and being successful at it. I started working very young and became very independent; I never looked back. It's been great for me, and I encouraged my kids to do the same. 

In this episode, you'll listen to me explain the steps my husband and I took to move to Australia and why we did it. It's great sharing my story on the podcast, as many people ask me about it: why I’ve moved to Australia, why and how I changed jobs, and how I got to where I am now.

In this Facebook Live, which we have now edited into a podcast, I focused on what I believe was my key challenges along the way: finding a career in a new country and juggling career and family.

Here are some key takeaways from what I learned along the way:

  • How building relationships are important for your career and sanity!
  • Planning and designing your lifestyle and budget to reach your career/life goals and passion.
  • How to make the best of every opportunity, if not creating your own.

In sharing my story, I hope to inspire you and encourage you wherever you may be in your path right now.

61. Are you a perfectionist? How perfectionism can hurt your career and what to do about it - with Author Lynne Cazaly

61. Are you a perfectionist? How perfectionism can hurt your career and what to do about it - with Author Lynne Cazaly

December 21, 2020

From the moment I decided to start a podcast, Lynne Cazaly was on the top of my list of potential guests. There’s something about her leadership style, her unassuming way, and the quiet confidence that she exudes, making her the perfect guest speaker. Last year, while trying to lock her in to record this episode, she was the hardest guest to pin down: she was in such high demand as a conference speaker, she was never in Melbourne long enough for us to get together. Now with COVID and quarantine, life has changed, we zoomed in, and finally, we had our chat a few weeks ago.

Lynne’s training and speaking gigs have included working for Australia's largest organizations, like Telstra, Australia Post, nab, CBA, and the AFL. She regularly travels to New Zealand, where she has a loyal following and delivers training and keynotes. Lynne has also done keynotes, workshops, and training in Europe, the USA, and Asia.

Her latest book, “ish: The Problem with our Pursuit for Perfection and the Life-Changing Practice of Good Enough,” got a lot of media attention. Lynne was interviewed extensively on TV and in magazines. The topic of perfectionism is one that everyone can relate to, and for that reason, I was able to see my friend in many morning TV shows over many weeks!

In this interview, we have pivoted the discussion about perfectionism to focus mostly on career planning, job hunting, and the selection and recruitment process. A “perfect” resume, a “perfect” match for the key selection criteria, giving the “perfect” answer to an interview question, “the perfect” job, being the “perfect” candidate” - these are sayings we through around all the time whilst job hunting. But they impact our mindset and create an unhealthy, unhelpful, and not sustainable expectation. I hope that after listening to this episode, you will feel free from "perfectionism" and ready to embrace "good enough"!

60. Career change: Switching sectors, industries, and countries - Karen James shares her story and tips.

60. Career change: Switching sectors, industries, and countries - Karen James shares her story and tips.

December 14, 2020

Karen James is the CEO of Business for Development and one of Australia's most well-loved businesswomen. Her vast network and her support of women in the corporate and SME sectors has been a hallmark of her relentless work advocating for women during her time working as a senior executive in the Australian banking sector and her ongoing engagement with Business Chicks, a professional association for women.

Karen has an amazing professional story to tell. Her career took many turns over the years, and she has embraced change, risk, and novelty along the way. Listen as she describes her career transitions, and give tips and advice to those who are willing to embrace career change as well.

 

About our guest, Karen James: 

With a background in Systems Thinking and Engineering, Karen James (KJ) has a unique talent for unpacking complex issues with companies to determine strategic opportunities. Her work with clients has enabled them to define and bring to life their purpose, vision, and strategy, with a strong focus on execution. KJ’s strengths lie in facilitating dialogue with various stakeholders and broker partnerships between organizations to achieve shared value.

KJ started her career in providing technical solutions for the European and Asia Pacific markets. Over time this led her to work for Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), taking on responsibility for Corporate Financial Services’ strategy and operations. Given her personal commitment to changing the way businesses tackle sustainability, KJ founded CBA’s Women in Focus community, which supports women in developing their businesses, providing connections and access to the latest tools, practical guidance, and insights to guide them on their business journey.

She also worked with the bank to develop and execute strategies for Community Business Finance. She led the Vision & Leadership Program at CBA, which resulted in analyzing The Hunger Project’s strategies at tackling complex issues with McKinsey and incorporated those learnings into the bank's own strategic approaches.

In 2014 Wiley International published KJ’s book On Purpose – a business book for people who want to steer their work back on course, with purpose leading the way – and started a consulting business. Key projects include building a new FinTech business in Ireland; developing an Indigenous language revival platform for the Federal Government; and working as an advisor to the CEO of a finance company, working to change the culture.

KJ achieved her Masters in Environmental Engineering at the University of Sydney and earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Hartford, where she studied Electrical Engineering.

59. The power of self-fidelity: How to be true to yourself and thrive professionally - with Author Cassandra Goodman.

59. The power of self-fidelity: How to be true to yourself and thrive professionally - with Author Cassandra Goodman.

December 7, 2020

Cassandra Goodman has defined self-fidelity as the practice of being true to yourself. And she wants us to cultivate the capacity to be faithful to our true, essential nature. She says, “We have already addressed self-compassion, self-love, so why not self-fidelity and being faithful to ourselves?”. This idea that we can reconnect with our own nature and rebuild the faith in ourselves can be a wonderful exploration to professionals who are job hunting or reflecting on the next steps to take with their careers.  So, I invited Cassandra for a chat about her new book, Self-Fidelity, which inspired me so much in 2020.  I believe it’s a must-read for job hunters. 

 

Want to win a copy of Cassandra Goodman’s new book? 

 

About our guest, Cassandra Goodman: 

Cassandra Goodman is guided by an aspiration to generously serve in order to uplift life. Cassandra loves supporting people to reconnect with their true nature and redefine success.  She has three decades of business experience across multiple industries and has held many different senior leadership roles, including Global Director of Employee Experience at a healthcare company where she was responsible for activating the organization’s purpose ‘Longer, Healthier, Happier Lives’ for their 86,000 employees across the world. Cassandra’s work is ever-evolving and spans a portfolio of coaching, consulting, writing, and speaking.  Her first book, Self-Fidelity, was released in December 2020. Cassandra is married, has two young sons, and can often be spotted on the streets of Melbourne cruising between lively conversations on her bright red pushbike.

58. Career Q&A: Returning from maternity leave, expected salary range, planning your next move, and much more

58. Career Q&A: Returning from maternity leave, expected salary range, planning your next move, and much more

November 30, 2020

In this episode, I’ll answer the most interesting questions I received since recording the last Career Q&A episode (episode 51). Thank you to everyone who has sent me questions by messaging me on social media, emails, or asking them when I’m invited to speak or present at webinars. It’s very important to me to receive these questions and know what issues are on your mind. This way, I can address them via the Q&A episodes and develop future episodes dedicated to the most common concerns you have.

 

Timestamps:

  • 03:11 - Salary range: I’m often asked to nominate an expected salary in online applications, and it’s a mandatory question! Any tips for answering?
  • 06:47 - No promotion: I am doing my job very well, and management likes to keep me where I am. I am stuck in the same position for the last ten years. Does it look like I am missing a strategy on how to communicate with top management?
  • 10:02 - Contract to permanent: I’m in a part-time contract role. My director wants my role to be permanent. It needs to be reviewed by the CEO for approval. I’m not sure how I would continue if it were refused.                                        
  • 14:54 - Moving from small to big company: What advice would you give someone who wants to move from a small company to a top tier company? It seems like the big four consulting firms only look for people who worked for the big four.
  • 18:56 - Starting a new role: I recently started a new role. Should I plan for my next move now?
  • 22:45 - Maternity leave: I have just returned from maternity leave and feel like I no longer enjoy my current role. What advice would you give in helping me find a new role?
  • 27:00 - Help with LinkedIn and resume: Can you advise me on how to do a better resume and LinkedIn? And can I send you my resume?
  • 31:12 - Job search during the holidays: What is your advice regarding the holiday season and job hunting? Is there any point in job hunting in December and early January?

54. The importance of staying healthy and positive while looking for a job - with wellbeing expert Susan Hunter

54. The importance of staying healthy and positive while looking for a job - with wellbeing expert Susan Hunter

November 2, 2020

Losing your job and being between jobs for an extended period of time can be really tough; a mental and physical roller-coaster ride. Recruitment and selection is also a challenging process to go through. For those without a coach or a strong support system, it can be very lonely. There's also the potential for lack of structure and routine - which professionals in the corporate sector are so used to - making you feel without a roadmap to follow. And finally, success is unpredictable when applying for roles. It is rare for a professional between jobs not to experience a high degree of failure before getting a new role. And failure at this level is a new experience for many professionals.

This is an important episode to listen to as we reach the tail end of an unpredictable year. If you are currently unemployed, it's time to review your plans and set new goals. You can use my program Reset Your Career to help you with that. But first, listen to this episode, and make sure you are taking care of your well-being, sleep, and keeping a positive mindset.

 

About our guest, Susan Hunter:

Susan Hunter is a naturopath and well-being expert who works with individuals and organizations to optimize their physical and mental well-being. Susan runs a practice called Human 2.0, where she helps people optimize their bodies and improve their biology and psychology. She has developed a reputation for employing deep care, empathy, authenticity, and understanding of nutritional biochemistry to achieve transformative results. 

Susan has 15 years of clinical experience in nutrition and integrative functional medicine. She has a double degree qualification in naturopathy with a background in psychology.

In addition to The Job Hunting Podcast, I've created a series of free tools and resources. I developed a range of services for professionals in career or job transition. And of course, I also coach private clients. So there is really no excuse – I’m determined to help you! I want you to feel empowered, nail your next job, and have the career you want.

 

About the Reset Your Career program:

We can all agree that 2020 has been a complicated year, and maybe you and other professionals like you at some point have lost track of your career goals, your focus, and your ambitions. Most importantly, lockdown, working from home, and unemployment have left many of us disconnected from what employers are now searching for in their new hires.

Reset Your Career is a program to kickstart our engines and put you back on track. It is perfect for professionals and executives in-between jobs in 2020 and hoping to find work in the corporate, public, and nonprofit sectors. In a hybrid program that mixes self-guided content and masterclasses, I will personally take you through the step-by-step of how to reset your career and start getting your job search plans into gear.
