I am a multi-certified Meeting Planner. Funny to think that title matters during a pandemic in an industry that was the first to go and will be the last to come back. My fellow Meeting Professionals have done a great job adapting to the virtual conference world and keeping a positive attitude when face-to-face meetings come back. I, on the other hand, took this time to pause. In addition to a family situation (my Mom, 85, fell and broke her ankle, and it was time to move her 2.5 hours south to live with my sister), I began re-evaluating. I started with what I enjoy most: helping people, continuous learning, details, and anything data-related. To make sure I was on the right path, I did a career path strengths finder. The results were data-focused type jobs: project manager, operations management, metrics management, marketing analyst, database administrator, data entry, and compliance, to name a few. My question, where do I even begin? How do I change my profiles to reflect where I want to go vs. where I have been?
