It was like ? clockwork. Every 2 years or so I got the itch.
It wasn't that I hated what I was doing at work but I WANTED MORE. ?
While everyone else was just happy to be in a role they liked some of the time, I was longing for MEANING & FULFILLMENT in my career. ?
I found myself about 2 years into every role excitedly scouring those job boards ? to see what else was out there.
At the same time, I worried about family and friends thinking, "Didn't she just start this job? Why is she moving on ALREADY??"
?And then it ALL CHANGED.
I took the time to figure out what I was really meant to be doing in my life AND I started doing it?...EVEN WHEN I FELT SCARED AND LIKE NO ONE ELSE WOULD UNDERSTAND.
And, you know what...I haven't had that job change itch in a long time. And so many people in my life come to me desperate to transform their life through a job change as well.
? Here's what I've learned...
There are a lot of people that pride themselves at staying in a job for 5, 10, or even 20 years just to say they did. BUT what they don't realized is remaining STUCK in a job just because it's easier to not make a move will make you MISERABLE. ?
It's just not worth it and THERE IS ANOTHER WAY. I'm living proof. You can be, too. ?
Are you feeling that itch right now? Tell me about it.
P.S. If you're so tired of feeling stuck in your current job and ready to walk out of work every day feeling truly fulfilled, I encourage you to learn more about my 1:1 program, From Stuck To Fulfilled Career Transformation.

Rival at work.
I have a colleague who I work with collaboratively for his technical knowledge which is impressive. He has been with the company for over 12 years now, most of them in Europe. I am in Canada. He moved to Canada a year and a half ago after I had been hired as a manager in Canada. He does not report to me. He is to help me with technical knowledge only. He helps everyone with technical knowledge actually. He told me in a casual, friendly conversation he wants to be in management and moved to Canada to pursue a promotion. As he has become more comfortable in his role, he feels the need to undermine my efforts. He lies to me, he one ups me on our open TEAM board at work and scoops projects with my customers behind my back. He takes credit for my work too. He is popular because of his impressive technical knowledge and is extremely helpful to the team overall. He has kind of entrenched himself at the company as the technical expert. However, he is making my job miserable. He cannot travel outside Canada due to his visa restrictions so he feels the need to build his name and clientiele with my Canadian customers. The rest of the team are in USA and they rely on his expertise but he does not intrude on their customers and projects. He did tell me the other day he feels that my position is not needed since he does it and I should talk with upper management about my purpose. He wrote this to me in a TEAMS chat. I am at a loss as to handle him. Any advice?

Looking for Clinical Data Analyst roles where I can grow and learn!
I was laid off in June 2023 and am looking for data analyst roles, preferably in the healthcare field. I have four years of experience as a business analyst on a healthcare product, and am looking to pivot into more back-end work with data. I have some training in SQL, Python, R, and Tableau from graduate school, although I did not use these skills at my last job, and am working on improving them through a bootcamp. Aside from the difficult job market, I have had trouble finding a company willing to take on somebody who is new to the field but absolutely willing to learn and grow.
FYI I am currently based in Northern Virginia but am open to relocating for the right job opportunity and benefits.

How do you negotiate salary?
Would love to know your tips, input, and all the things! I've read a bunch of good advice on LinkedIn and whatnot... but I'd love to know what this community has to share! Also – how do you stay confident when talking about money? And more specifically - as a woman when a man is interviewing you. Thanks in advance ✨

I would never dare ask a recruiter this when discussing a job opportunity, but I have a dumb question.... When you are interviewing for a "contract" position through an agency.... are you truly locked into the timeframe they state? If you find a permanent job during that time, can you quit the contract job?

Ready to take your career to the next level?
Watch this video about exploring career paths when your head says, “I don’t know." Acknowledgement of "not knowing" is the first step towards a successful career! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2FLDPg3uV0
Remember, it's okay not to have all the answers right now, as long as you know how to move yourself forward and increase your clarity slowly but surely. A little progress can go a long way!

Growing my resume!
Do you consider courses/professional certificates on Coursera to be valuable and/or worth the time? I have degrees, but there are some certifications that I feel would bulk my resume if Coursera is respected.
