  • Focus on the things you want, not the things you are not happy with
  • Growing your career more strategic and breaking the traditional roadmap
  • Following your excitement in your career
  • Graduating from College – Now what?
  • Get away from the concept of having a "purpose," because you do not have to figure out whom you are going to be when you turn 50 – Today
  • It is OK to be more general – do not focus on one job title
  • Figure out what you are good at and what your strengths are
  • Getting creative, especially during the Covid crisis
  • Finding positions that will allow you to utilize the skills that you enjoy
  • Breaking your strengths out to define your path
  • Asking peers, professors, and the previous boss' what are your strengths 
  • Starting with your strength and doing an inventory will guide you on how to get started
  • Doing your research to make sure companies can offer you what your strengths are
  • Pair your strengths based on the situation and the role
  • Sometimes your strengths fit the organization but not the role
  • Steps to doing an inventory
  • Working around your weaknesses – However, try to avoid roles where the role focus is on a weakness that you have
  • Try to focus on your strengths – not your weaknesses – you get more ROI if you put your focus on strengths
  • Knowing what you are not good at could help mitigate risk
  • Searching for a role – create 2 or 3 nonnegotiables and beyond that be flexible
  • Do not just apply unless you plan on keeping track of everything you used for 
  • Does the role sound exciting?  Limit your applications to roles that get you excited
  • Avoid the path of least resistance
  • During Covid – if you have to take a job that doesn't pay what you want, use this time to figure out what your next path will be after Covid
