Hello my name is Christina. I have over 20 years of working in an business environment in accounting, finance. human resources and business analytics. Except for the last year I have always taken at least one college course, worked full time. After the recession in 2008 and working for 4 companies that eventually closed. I decided to work as a contractor full time and go to school full time. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Business Leadership and Management in 2015 and went on to graduate with my Master's in Business Administration in 2017. I volunteer in my community and I am a part of many boards at my job. I often voice my ideas to numerous members in management in our standing 1:1 meetings. I am happy to report that I feel my ideas being heard because I can see the changes that are being made through those collaborations. My challenge is moving to that next level within an organization. I have worked so hard all my life to provide and be a role model for my children and I don't know how to get to the next level. When I ask for feedback I'm told that I do an amazing job and I'm one of the hardest most dedicated people, the organization is just going through a lot of change. I do see this as well. The roles are available but they seem to be already spoken for. What can I do to be noticed and considered for these positions? I currently live in the Midwest and have considered moving to a larger city that may have more diversity.
