How do you open a conversation/send an email to someone who does the job you want to ask how they got there?
Moving from here to there
August 5,2020 at 6:17PM UTC
Hi all, I work in Coms so you might think it's alittle odd asking for help communicating but it's tricky when it comes doing something for me rather than the business I work in!
So here I am asking the collective intelligence that I regularly see on FGB for help in reaching out to strangers - networking online.
I want to move into stress management/resilience training and return to work coaching. I want to offer training in workplaces and help individuals create selfcare plans. I also want to act as a return to work coach for those who have had to take time out due to stress or burnout.
Why? because when it happened to me, there was no support around and my employer didn't do so well at the return to work thing.
I can't decide whether to do a qualification in counselling or coaching, or if I need to do both which to start with. I know there are others providing this service so I want to approach them and ask how they got there and what advice they would give someone who wants to get there too.
What I need help with
I don't want to blow the fledgling relationships with those I have met at conference who are in this arena by sending some dumb introduction/what should I do email.
I bet there is a great (flattering) way to approach people you don't know to ask them to share their journey and thoughts on routes but I don't know how to do it.
Would be grateful for any tips you might have on how to approach those who are already in a role you want on how to get there.
Thanks in advance, Tracey

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.

Is anyone else experiencing significant challenges in their job search these days?
As a creative director who left their job earlier this year, I've been receiving rejection emails left and right from automated systems. Am I the only one facing this, or is there something unique happening in the job market?

I really loved the job fair we had today, very useful, and made some new connections.
I advise others to attend the next event.

Sending positive vibes to everyone!
Just felt like the community could use a sprinkle of encouragement today.
I may not know your exact situation but I wanted YOU to know that I SEE you and I'm PROUD of you. I know it's a weird time (a lot is going on) but you've got this. Breathe through it and DON'T GIVE UP.
You are capable.
You are supported.
You are valued.
You are loved.
You are needed.
You are powerful.
You are light.
You are amazing.
I hope everyone has a good rest of the week.

to add to the 4 months notice denied PTO
I am loyal and been with the company for more than 25 years ; good attendance and employee of the month and season too.
I think he should cut me a slack and approve it. ( still on the works but made me really upset )
