Turn passion into an actual job

It seems like everyone wants to know how to turn their passion into a career, but very few people know how to do it. A quick Google search returns 119,000,000 results. Clearly, it’s a popular topic.

Why do we get so lost connecting the dots between “passion” and “employment”?

Stress. This is usually the biggest culprit. Stress about making a change, stress from the work involved, and stress about the unknown. Stress kills creativity. And when you’re less able to be creative, your problem-solving skills are hampered.

Stress impacts our thought process by narrowing our point of view. When we’re experiencing fight or flight mode, we’re physically incapable of exploring the myriad of options available to us. Under stress, we respond by instinct. Our body defaults to protection mode and will employ the safest response necessary. Our mind becomes blocked to all but a few, very limited responses.  

This may seem extreme in terms of your career, but your career affects many aspects of your life – time, finances, family, and health. If any or all of these areas are threatened, we feel stress.

In a 2009 study on stress and creativity, researchers discovered that chronically stressed rats fell back into familiar routines and rote responses instead of using curious learning behaviour. Of course, this is the opposite of creativity.

With big life decisions – like a career change – we can also fall victim to the stress of perfection. A strong desire to make the right choice or perfect choice, can keep us from doing precisely that. The harder we work to make something perfect, the more likely we are to over think and deviate away from the options with the greatest potential.

There’s no quick fix for transforming your passion into a career and,sometimes, the best option is not the most obvious one. As a career coach and resume writer, I’ve spoken to many people who have found their way into an ideal career through highly unconventional paths. They often describe “falling into” their career, or their career “finding them”.

It’s not that they simply got lucky; it’s that they remained open to possibility.

My own personal career as a resume writer seemed to come about by accident. While it’s a career path that brings me immense joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment, it’s not a career that I had ever considered. Becoming a resume and career coach had never crossed my mind, simply because I didn’t know much about it. When I was searching for a career that would use my writing, research, interviewing, and story-telling skills to have a profound impact on people, I didn’t know that resume writing was an ideal fit for my personal passion and natural talents.

But, by remaining open to opportunities and not forcing my career to take a specific path, resume writing came to me through networking and I decided to try it. More than 5 years later, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made with my life.

Forcing yourself along a specific path can kill potential. Often, the best career options are possibilities you’ve never considered or jobs you didn’t know existed. Just because you like numbers doesn’t mean your only career options are in accounting or finance. Or, if you enjoy helping people improve their health, it doesn’t mean you necessarily need a career in medicine. If you feel that helping children is your calling, it doesn’t mean you’re destined to be a teacher or daycare worker. There are millions of opportunities to awaken and fuel a passion, and countless careers paths.

Traditional careers and professions (doctor, lawyer, teacher, accountant, etc.) are more top of mind, but they are just a small fraction of the options available to you. That’s why creativity and an openness to explore are incredibly important in your journey.

To foster your creativity and further develop your ability to truly listen to yourself, start by changing your current state to one of heart coherence.  At Careers by Design, we have helped thousands of clients practice this simple technique and have seen startling results.  If it's worked for so many, why not give it a try?  Follow the simple steps below. 

Quick Coherence Technique

There’s a HeartMath technique that can be incredibly powerful for shifting your emotional state and opening up the pathways of communication between your heart and brain, effectively removing yourself from a stressed state to an open and creative state. This technique can help you to achieve clarity and “heart coherence” for optimal decision making.

  • 1
    Heart focus: Shift your attention to the area of your heart and breathe slowly and deeply.
  • 2
    Heart breathing: Keep your focus in the heart by gently breathing – 5 seconds in and five seconds out – through the area of your heart – and do this two or three times.
  • 3
    Heart feeling: Activate and sustain a genuine feeling of appreciation or care for someone or something in your life. Focus on the positive heart feeling as you continue breathing through the area of your heart.

Practicing this routinely will help you remain in a state of openness and exploration. You’ll be able to see possibilities and opportunities,that were completely invisible to you before. Of course, this doesn’t mean that your dream career will magically fall from the sky – it will still require some research, networking, and inner work – but new possibilities will start to appear. And then, you too, may feel like your perfect career has “found you”.

The coaches at Careers By Design are experts at guiding clients through this exploration process and uncovering opportunities that you may never have considered. Connect with ​Nisha, our Client Happiness Manager, to book a free chat to see how we can help you achieve your dreams.

4 ways to make change easier

If you hate change, you’re not alone.

Along with the 34% of people in this study who said they would avoid change at all costs, I am also among you change-haters.

I’m one of those people who despises change, yet, seems to constantly hurl themselves into it. Whether it’s a new project, a new athletic endeavour, moving from city to city (and sometimes to different countries), or forming new professional and personal relationships, I’m as restless as they come. While I’m constantly pushing the envelope and testing my boundaries, I don’t feel I handle change well.

Fearing change is perfectly normal. Change brings about a loss of control, increased risk, potential to fail, and a general sense of uncertainty. Most of us are comforted by order and predictability, and bristle at the mere thought of those comforting routines being disrupted.

So why change? Why invite the discomfort?

Well, there are many major motivators; chief among them: The desire to be better and feel better, the desire to chase and accomplish big dreams, the hope of a more enjoyable future. For me, if nothing is changing in my life and I’m no longer learning, pushing, and growing, I feel stagnant and dull. I’m a better person when I’m adapting to change – even though I may be fighting fear every step of the way.

Science backs me (and you) up on this one.

Our brains love efficiency. So, when we attempt to make a decision – like changing our career or applying for a promotion – our brains look for historic data and past thought-patterns to arrive a conclusion that’s consistent with our sense of self. If, in the past you’ve been turned down for a promotion, or a job search lasted for months, or received negative feedback from friends and family about a career decision, your brain will try to protect you from those negative outcomes. Your brain will push back against the change.

Your brain is simply reinforcing a story that you have about yourself. A story that says if you try, this bad thing or feeling will happen. But you don’t have to be stuck with that story. You can outsmart your own self and make yourself that much more comfortable with change. And trust me, there are better ways than my personal “feel the fear and do it anyway approach”.

1. Change Your Internal Story

What you think about yourself and how you see yourself make all the difference when you’re embarking on change or making a decision. You’re far more likely to proceed with a change if you feel positive and confident about the outcome. If you are constantly telling yourself that you’ll be too stressed or that you’re doomed to fail, you likely will be (or you’ll be unlikely to attempt the change at all).You are not beholden to the scripts and stories you have about yourself – those can change too! Your brain can be re-wired to think differently. If you consistently tell yourself that things will work out for the better, that you have the skills and strength to overcome difficulty, and that you will succeed, you are much more likely to accomplish your goals. Practice complementing yourself and eventually, your brain will see this as the new default response – it will prop you up with support and encouragement (instead of defeat and fear) when you see a job you want to apply for or when you want to meet with your boss about a promotion or raise.

2. Don't Muscle Past Your Feelings, Embrace Them

Unfortunately, feelings don’t just go away if you ignore them.

You may get away with “feeling the fear and doing it anyway” for a little while, but eventually it will sneak up on you and you’ll end-up in tears in the middle of grocery store trying to select a bag of apples (true story).

It’s vital that you really listen to your feelings and give them the respect they deserve. This is what will allow you to move forward with the confidence and self-compassion that will lead to success.

Try using this HeartMath tool when you are facing an immediate difficult decision or situation. Start by recognizing what you’re feeling and give it a name. Is it fear, anger, anxiety, frustration, disappointment? Naming your feeling will help you to accept and understand what’s going on in your body.

Then, focus on your heart area and breath in love for about a minute. This is an act of self-compassion. If negative thoughts or feelings continue to arise, just refocus on your heart area. As you focus on your heart, you want to radiate this compassion to any issues you are experiencing (fear, inadequacy, insecurity, self-pity).

As you do so, you’ll notice those feelings subside. Sitting with your feelings and giving them space for understanding, gives them less power over your actions. When you give your feelings the attention they demand – but in a calm and self-compassionate way – they are less likely to pop up in destructive ways.

3. Create New Habits

If you’re looking to do something new on a regular basis, like speaking up more in meetings, networking with other industry professionals, volunteering for more difficult assignments and projects, you need to form a new habit.

The trick to successfully establishing a new habit is to pick something small and associating it with another, already well-formed, habit. For example, if you want to voice your opinions and ideas in meetings more often, start with one safe-feeling meeting that happens at work. If you have a weekly, small team meeting, try speaking up here first – ask a question or suggest an idea.

Once this becomes a comfortable habit, try it other more senior meetings. If expanding your professional network is a goal, connect your regular social media activity or web-browsing habits with LinkedIn.

After checking your Facebook messages, pop over to LinkedIn to send a few new connection requests.Whatever new habit you’re trying to create, make sure it’s easy and achievable. You can always build on it later; the most important part is making sure you consistently perform the new action.

4. Normalize Change in Your Life

Perhaps the best way to embrace change, is to make it a regular part of your every day experience. Cultivate a life where change is normal and welcomed.

Here are my top 4 tips for embracing change in your day-to-day life.

1.Be Open to New Things. Give yourself permission to be vulnerable.

2.Be Playful. Don’t take yourself too seriously, it relieves the pressure.

3.Be Yourself. Living authentically can refresh your attitudes and remove limiting expectations.

4.Be Inspired and Motivated.

Don’t neglect the activities and people in your life that bring you joy.Feeling discomfort around change may never fully disappear, and that’s ok. Just don’t let change avoidance or fear of the unknown keep you stuck somewhere you don’t want to be. The discomfort of change will never be as great as the discomfort that comes from regret.

Are you like me? To you fear change or simply avoid it? Let me know in the comments how you’re going to tackle change this year. Or, if you have an inspiring story about change, I want to hear it!

3 Ways to Get Moving When You Feel Stuck in Your Career

3 Ways to Get Moving
When You're Feeling Stuck

It happens to the best of us. 

Even the most goal-oriented, ambitious, and driven people can, from time to time, find themselves stuck in a rut. If you’ve been in a job, field, or industry for any significant period of time, it’s common to feel a bit stagnated and stifled – especially if you’re no longer feeling challenged or if your professional growth has plateaued.

Newton's First Law of Motion states that a body at rest will remain at rest unless an outside force acts on it. Here are 3 steps to take to be the positive force your career needs to get moving again.

1. Identify Why You're Stuck

You can’t map out a course if you have no idea where you’re starting from (or what the destination is). That’s a sure-fire way to stay stuck. Ever find yourself a bit disoriented when you emerge from an underground subway tunnel or get off an elevator? You stand still, right? Until you can find your bearings or read a sign to point you where you need to be, you don’t keep moving; you stand still.

Identifying the cause of your rut is critical in helping you gain your bearings in your career. If you’re lucky, the tether holding you back in your career may be quite obvious (lack of opportunity in your current role, missing key industry certifications, or good old-fashioned complacency). If your obstacles are not staring you in the face, you may need to dig deep to uncover what exactly is holding you back. Career coaches are experts at mining for these root causes, so if your own personal self-reflection doesn’t get you any closer, you may want to schedule a career coaching session with someone who can help you identify your blocks.

Here are some common career stagnation causes to consider:

You want to “wait and see” if things change at your current workplace.

Maybe your organization is undergoing changes, or you expect someone to transition out of a role, or perhaps you feel that “your time” is right around the corner. These are all fair and valid reasons to be cautious about jumping ship or making a drastic move – but, how long are you willing to “wait and see”? How comfortable are you with relinquishing control of your career?

Negative beliefs about the job market (and your ability to navigate it).

This is the “devil you know is better than the devil you don’t” mentality. You might be more comfortable being miserable in your job, than experiencing (perceived) discomfort in the job market. But keep in mind, beliefs become your reality. If you truly believe that there’s nothing better out there, there won’t be. If you believe the job market is too tough for you to compete, you’ll be right. On the other hand, if you believe you have value to offer and the skills to make a difference, you’ll find a company or an employer who will see that in you. This is another area where a career coaching expert or expert resume writer can leverage their outside perspective to show you what you may be missing on your own.

Fear.

This is a biggie. And, completely normal and natural. Anytime you want step-up or try something different, fear will rear its ugly head. Fear is great at inducing paralysis. But, the biggest antidote for fear, is acknowledging it. Once you know its fear – and not lack of skill and ability – it becomes a little less powerful and little easier to overcome.

2. Let Your Imagination Run Wild

Your imagination is your greatest motivator.

And, for many of us, the power source we tap into the least.

Whenever I’m feeling less than motivated to improve, to learn, or to challenge myself, I encourage myself to take a few minutes to daydream. I imagine the possibilities and feel as if those positive things are happening right now. The emotional response that happens in my body when I commit to “feeling” how my life would be different, completely fires me up to work toward those big scary goals.

Best tip I can give you: imagine all the “what ifs”.

What if you had your dream job? What if you had the compensation or benefit package you truly deserve? What if you could have the impact on a company or organization you desire? What if you could initiate the changes you’d like to see in the world or in a business? If your big dreams came true, how would that feel for you? How would that make a difference in your life?

Our logical brain can often stifle our ability to move forward and mute our ambition and motivation. Instead, let your emotional-self and feelings stoke the fires of your motivation. You might surprise yourself with how fearless you become with just a little daydreaming.

2. Commit to a First Step, only!

The first step is always the most difficult.

Trying something new is never easy. But, it’s not impossible.

Think of anything you currently enjoy doing. Was it easy right from the get-go?

Probably not.

One of my favourite extracurricular activities is mountain biking. The first time I showed up at a park to learn some basic skills, I stood over my bike paralyzed by doubt and fear for nearly 20 minutes (completely annoying the friend I had badgered into taking me). But when I finally got my feet on the pedals, and started moving, it got easier. The second time isn’t a scary as the first time. The third time isn’t as scary as the second, and so on.

Give yourself permission to be scared of making that first move, that first step. Commit to just one small action; one small, manageable step in the direction of your goals and use that momentum to keep you going. Make this first step – whatever it may be – as small as possible.

If you’re thinking about gaining a professional certification, maybe that first step is just researching organizations that offer the certification or finding training dates. Maybe you want to position yourself for a promotion this year, maybe the first step is arranging a meeting with a colleague or supervisor.

Still too scary? Draft an email script requesting the meeting or prepare some talking points and questions for the meeting, then move from there to actually setting-up the date.

If you feel you need a drastic career change, your first step could be reaching out to a coach or a friend who’s done something similar. Another great “first step” for any goal? Plan out all the little steps you can foresee needing to take over the course of the journey.

No matter what your first step is, try and keep your attention and focus on just that one single step. Don’t get hung-up on all the steps that happen after. Looking at your journey in its entirety or ruminating over everything else yet to be done, is a sure way to keep yourself paralyzed with overwhelm. That’s exactly what happened to me on that mountain bike.

Instead of just looking at the first bump to ride over, I was looking at the entire park and everything I’d never done before. It was only after making a deal with myself to just get over one bump, did I finally move the pedals on that bike. Breaking up your career journey into minuscule (almost ridiculously) small steps – can make even the most impossible goals suddenly seem more conquerable.

What Does It Take To Make A Successful Career Transition?

By Eileen Chadnick | Find A Career That Fits

What Does It Take To Make A Successful Career Transition

FIND A CAREER THAT FITS

by Eileen Chadnick, Career Counsellor & Leadership Coach

Career transition can be exhilarating, daunting, frustrating, and rewarding – often all at the same time!

As a coach, it’s extremely heartening to see a client succeed with their career transition goals – and even more so when the client has had to deal with more than their share of challenges. 

When people ask what makes for a success career transition effort, I will think of Frank. Frank came to Careers By Design with some big career challenges. He had just left a career of 30 years in international development work and set out to find his first Canadian job in Toronto.

Frank confessed to knowing little-to-nothing about the Canadian career landscape and didn’t know how to go about finding employment that fit his interests and qualifications.

While his career experience had been meaningful and rich, it didn’t translate into obvious roles in Toronto. He felt lost and overwhelmed.

Our partnership was one where we introduced Frank to a career navigation approach with lots of guidance and support along the way. Frank’s responsibility was to lean in and do the actual work. Lots of it!

A Learning Journey


This process was about more than landing a job. Frank learned a lot about himself including his strengths (transferable skills and character strengths), values, needs, and aspirations.


He also learned to challenge some of his assumptions and try on new possibilities. He had some wins and then many bumps. He learned how to deal with the set-backs and with each one, he accessed his resourcefulness and resilience and found ways to learn from them and move forward.

Eventually he landed a fantastic job that fit his skills and preferences beautifully.


The role even exceeded his best hopes. It’s not always easy to make a career change – especially in the later stages of your career. But, as Frank demonstrated, it’s possible if you commit to the process and do the work.


Here's what it takes to succeed...


Know yourself – Clients often want to jump to the ‘find the job’ phase but it’s hard to do this if you haven’t taken the time to learn about yourself. Knowing your array of strengths, special talents, values, and aspirations is imperative to honing in on the right path and telling your story effectively.

The ‘know yourself’ phase gives you the awareness that serves as a ‘compass’ to making good career decisions and convey your career narrative with more efficacy.


Hard work and commitment – While coaching provides guidance, a sounding board, and encouragement, the client must be willing to do the work. This might include digging in to learn about their strengths; doing research on career ideas; working on career branding materials; digging into the job search; stretching yourself (in courage and effort) in networking – and much more.


Courage – Making changes can be scary and especially when the road ahead is unknown. We often tell clients that making changes isn’t about eliminating the fear. Instead, it’s about learning to tap into your courage. Even if only one moment at a time. It’s okay to feel a little fear if you remember to access your courage and take the action steps that will move you forward.


Open minded & adaptable – Clients often come to coaching with some starting ideas about their career next steps. This is terrific. It’s just as important to be able to pivot and show adaptability as you learn about the changing realities within the Canadian job market. This adaptability can expand your possibilities.


Hope & gratitude – Career navigation can be tough sometimes. It takes grit, persistence and a whole bunch of hope and optimism. It’s crucial that you never give up. Finding ways for authentic appreciation and hope can fuel you forward. We take this part as seriously as the job finding tactics! 


Frank had his share of tough moments along the way, but he always rebounded and found ways to stay connected to positivity, hope, and gratitude. In the end, his persistence and heartiness paid off and he was rewarded with a fabulous new start in Toronto. It was a pleasure to work with Frank. He inspired me and I’m grateful for the opportunity.

3 Ways to Make Your Summer Better At Work

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


3 Ways to Make Summer Even Better

DearFriend,

It is officially summer, as the Northern hemisphere celebrated the Summer Solstice
on June 21st.

Gone are the days of winter boots and coats and rushing from one warm spot to the next.

Now it’s time to bask in longer, warmer days! So, how can we use this time to refresh our career?
Here are 3 quick suggestions:

1) Start your day earlier. We are now at the peak in terms of daylight hours – don’t let
this go to waste! Wake up a little earlier so you can do whatever you need to do to
feel prepared before starting your day.

2) For many of us, we feel more relaxed during the summer. Take advantage of this and
get yourself organized. See if you can tackle some things that have been on the to-do
list for a while.  It’ll make you feel more in control and that can spill over into your work.

3) Make your weekends count. These long, warm days will only be with us for a few
months, and most of us want to be outside enjoying them. Give yourself some time
on the weekend to completely unplug and enjoy the sunny weather so you can get
back into the office feeling completely refreshed.

Want more ideas to optimize your summer? Senior Coach Lee Weisser wrote this blog post on How Summer Can Boost Your Career.

And, just in case you missed our last newsletter, we’re offering our powerful Turning Point career coaching session with coach Linda Faucheux for only $97 (a $50 savings, or 34% off our regular price).

Do I Have To Take A Step Backwards To Find Happiness In My Career?

Do I Have To Take A Step Backwards To Find Happiness In My Career?

Do I Have To Take A Step Backwards To Find Happiness In My Career?

FIND A CAREER THAT FITS

by Kristen Duever, Career Researcher and Writer, Careers by Design

All things being equal, making a career transition can be hard enough as it is. But all things are rarely equal.

One of the biggest fears we see in clients who are looking to make a change is that they will have to step backwards to get into the field that they truly desire.

They feel stuck because they are afraid they will have to take a pay cut. They fear losing the seniority, vacation time and benefits that they have worked so hard over the years to achieve.

And what if they make the move and it turns out not to be worth it? What if they make the move only to discover that they have made a terrible mistake?

Too often, well-meaning friends and family members help to fuel these fears.

Your peers may want what’s best for you but they usually see the risk much more clearly than they see the reward.

They advise security over the unknown.

The good news is that making a shift in your career doesn’t always mean you have to take a step backward.

You really don’t have to give up on your dreams and stay in a job that no longer suits you just to have security.

How a career coach can help you through a career transition


Some people know exactly what they want to do with the rest of their working lives. Others only have a vague sense that they’re no longer happy in their present job but they aren’t sure what will make them happy.


Whatever side of the coin you are on, a Careers by Design coach can help you determine what your next steps should be.


Using our proven and unique approach, our coaches will take you through a series of exercises to put you in touch with your true desires and then help you develop strategies for achieving them. This helps to make your career transition much easier.


No longer are you reacting to a situation of dissatisfaction with your current job, but you are taking calculated and thoughtful steps toward taking the career path that is right for you.


We will even advise you on how your current skills can translate into your new position and how to negotiate a job offer so you won’t necessarily have to start at the bottom


Once you can see your new career path clearly, fear of the unknown starts to disappear. You will have a clearer mind which will be of great benefit to you when you apply for a new position or go to an interview.


What if I still have to take a cut in pay, seniority, etc.?


Depending on your particular career transition, it is still possible that you’ll end up making less money. Perhaps your benefits won’t be as good. Or maybe the new position won’t have all the same perks.


We can’t guarantee this will never happen.


Then again, what if the new position you find has more perks than you’ve ever dreamed of. What if you experience an increase of confidence because you’re doing work that is meaningful to you?


What if you have an extra spring in your step that you haven’t had in years?


What if you have a better relationship with your family because you aren’t stressed out all time?


And, what if you actually get paid more?


Even if a career transition reduces your income initially, if you are happier and more productive at work, it could cause your earning potential to go up higher than it would have gone had you stayed in a position you didn’t like.


While we can’t give advice specific to your situation in a blog, here are a few scenarios when it might be worth it to take a step back in order to make a career transition:


When you are changing industries – if you are just dying to get into a different field, then taking a pay cut or a step back in seniority may be worth it to get the career that you really want.


When you need more work-life balance – no paycheck is big enough to sacrifice your health or your time with your family. Giving up some of your current job’s perks for some added flexibility can be a very good thing.


When the new opportunity is a better fit – maybe you want to make a change because there is a position at a specific company that you would like to work for, or because you saw a job posting that you just knew in your gut was meant for you. In this case, even if you have to take a step back in the short term, you could end up being much happier with your career.


When it all evens out – A pay cut doesn’t necessarily mean a reduction in lifestyle. For example, perhaps you have a great-paying job with a long commute. If you can get something closer to home that pays less, you may be able to save enough on gas and car maintenance that a pay cut won’t matter.


When the new job offers a benefit your current job doesn’t – Money and seniority aren’t the only perks. Perhaps you’d be willing to give up some of this for more vacation time, performance bonuses or paid tuition. If the new job offers something you want more, then making the switch may be the right move.


When there is no more room for advancement – Perhaps you’ve gone as far as you can go in your current company. Maybe you have maxed out on your salary potential. If so, taking a position in a fast growing company may help you to get out of your rut. A short term cut in pay could end up paying you much more in the end.


When you want to be self-employed - Taking the leap into self-employment can be a scary step because it means giving up a certain amount of security. But if you’ve always dreamed of working for yourself, the trade-off can be worth it.



To move or not to move?


Changing careers is not a decision that you should make on blind emotion.

After all, you still have to pay your bills and take care of your family.

But it’s also important to take care of yourself and honour your instincts and feelings.

A Careers by Design coach can help you decide when and how to change careers so that you will have peace about your decision.

How this simple law of physics can boost your career

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice



Use this simple law of physics
to boost your career!
Dear All

Whew! Where has the summer gone!?

Since it is almost back to school time, I thought I’d begin with a little physics lesson. Ok, not a physics lesson exactly – but at least a good analogy which relates physics to your career path.

Newton’s first law of motion states that “an object at rest tends to remain at rest, while an object in motion tends to stay in motion.”

Well interestingly, careers can be a lot like that too. When we’ve got lots of energy and momentum, the road to success feels tangible. We are moving up in the world. We are gaining new skills. In short, we are improving ourselves and making a contribution to our company.

But what if your career feels more like “an object at rest”? You know, stuck in a rut with little or no room for advancement. Or maybe you feel like your present job just doesn’t fit you the way it used to.

The good news is that there is a second part to Newton’s law.

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion unless it is compelled to change by forces impressed upon it.

You can change your career. Or you can start moving forward again in the career that you already have. You can get out of that rut. You just need the right strategies (forces) to move it along.

I hope you find the following resources helpful in getting your career back in motion!

To your success,

How to Stay Confident During Your Job Search

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


How to Stay Confident During Your Job Search –
Even When Things Aren’t Going Your Way
DearFriend,

We talk a lot about listening to your heart to find the job that truly meets your needs and that you will find fulfilling for years to come.

But let’s face it. Sometimes searching for a job is downright hard. If you’ve lost your job and are searching while you are out of work, it can be a blow to your confidence.

This is especially true if you see people who are younger, or maybe less experienced getting a job that you had hoped for.

Could it be that your lack of confidence is hurting you?

The answer is unfortunately yes.

When you go for a job interview, the person sitting across from you will try to make a judgement about what it would be like working with you.

If you go in to the interview with a sense of worry and defeat, you are going to project that.

Especially if you’re applying for a job that can be stressful at times (and – spoiler alert – that’s every job!), a potential employer will want to feel confident that you can rise to the occasion.

So how do you project confidence instead of desperation during your job search?

Start focusing on the process rather than worrying about the outcome.

Start doing things that will help you reach your goal and count them as mini successes. Attend networking events. Take classes. Volunteer. Read. Get Coaching. Take the time to look within and go after what you really want. As you do this, your confidence will grow.

At Careers By Design, we can help you with the often difficult and stressful process of job searching.

We can give you the tools you need to listen to your heart. And when you start doing that, you will start projecting confidence in your job search. And that will set you on the path to success.

Learn how summer can boost
your career!
Dear All

I hope you are enjoying your summer!

Whether you like to spend your time at the beach, going out to the golf course or enjoying warm summer evenings just gazing at the stars, this is a great time of year to recharge your batteries.

It’s also a great time of year to channel your renewed energy into your career goals.

Now you might be saying, “but wait, I thought summer was a chance to relax!” And that is exactly my point. When you are more relaxed, it is easier to focus.

In fact, using this time of relaxation to sharpen your career focus might help you enjoy your summer even more.  

We’ve seen people have great success doing just this at a time when things are assumed to be slow.
Coach, Lee Weisser, explains more in her featured blog post below.

To your success,

Feeling relaxed can help us think more broadly about our challenges and be more open to new solutions.

Let Springtime be a Time of Renewal for Your Career

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Let Springtime be a Time of Renewal
for Your Career
DearFriend,

Whew! What a winter! Didn’t it just seem to last forever this year?

But finally, it seems that Spring has truly arrived. I love Spring because it is a turning point.

We can finally put away our winter boots and break out the flip flops. We can start working on our garden, and spend more time outside.

It’s a time for renewal. And since nature is renewing itself, I thought it might also be a good time to talk about renewal in your career.

Has your job started to feel a little stale? Like you are stuck in a career winter?

We all go through periods like that – but if you have been stuck for too long, you might need a little help getting unstuck.

A career coach can help you determine what you really want out of your career and guide you on making the right steps.

If you need springtime to finally arrive in your career, it may be time to give us a call.

To your success

How to Get Out of Your Career Rut

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


How To Get Out Of Your Career Rut

DearFriend,

Everybody hits plateaus in their career from time to time.

Sometimes these plateaus can be a welcome rest after a period of intense effort. But stay on that plateau for too long and you can end up in a rut.

What once felt like a welcome break can lead to boredom or frustration.

So how do you get unstuck in your career? What do you do when you simply don’t feel like you’re growing or learning anymore?

This is the time to look within and listen to your heart.

Using a a set of techniques from the HeartMath™ Institute, our career coaches help you tap into your feelings, discover what is most important to you and then chart a practical, strategic and effective course of action, completely personalized for you.

We’ve been doing this for over 13 years and delving deeper like this is the only way to truly unlock the right path when you’re feeling confused or uncertain about your future.  Why? Because everyone is different – no career situation is the same and neither are the solutions.  

What solutions will you find when you look within?

It may be time for a career transition. Or it may simply be time to talk to your boss about getting some extra training and get you moving forward.
Whatever it is you need, on some level you already know what that is – you just need to learn how to listen.

Learn more about our unique approach to getting out of a career rut.  Or read our latest blog post, “Are You Smart but Stuck? How to Listen To Your Heart To Move Forward”.

Are You Smart But Stuck? How to Listen To Your Heart & Move Forward.

By Kristen Duever | Find A Career That Fits

Smart but Stuck: How to Listen to your Heart and Move Forward

FIND A CAREER THAT FITS

by Kristen Duever, Career Researcher and Writer, Careers by Design

Have you ever felt stuck in your career?

Maybe you’re highly skilled in your field. Maybe your co-workers are always asking you for advice or to check their work.

And yet, it just feels like you have stopped growing.
 
If you fall into the “smart but stuck” category, it can be especially tricky because from an outsider’s point of view everything looks fine. After all, no one likes a complainer, right?

Perhaps you have already identified a number of options for moving forward. Or perhaps it feels like there are no options at all.

If you are feeling stuck, you are probably wondering what to do next? 

We know that too much pressure on the job is a bad thing.

It can be easy to forget however, that not enough pressure is a bad thing too. In nature, a butterfly needs to struggle to emerge from its cocoon. A chick needs to struggle to emerge from the egg.

Without the struggle they remain weak and unable to survive. And without a way to grow in our own careers, we can quickly become bored and dissatisfied.

You need to find a way to get unstuck and move forward.

The bad news is that almost everyone gets stuck at some point along their career path. The good news is that you don’t have to stay stuck

Where to turn when you’re feeling stuck?


If you are finding that you are no longer growing in your career, it can be easy to place the blame on your employer. It can be easy to look at management and point to the fact that they are not providing the training you need to advance. It's easy to say that they are not recognizing your potential.


But the fact is that in an age of cost-consciousness and cut-backs, many employers simply cannot provide professional development like they used to.


And if you are only looking to management to get you unstuck, you are overlooking the one person that has the most power to help you overcome your problem – yourself.


Nowadays, more than ever, it's up to you to direct your own career path and development!


Listen to your heart and get unstuck.


Listening to your heart sounds like it should be easy to do.


But for many people it's challenging – at least in the beginning.


It may even feel foreign. We simply haven’t been taught how to seek out our own wisdom.

But with a little practice and perhaps some assistance, it's a habit that anyone can build - one that can help you with any dilemma you might face, professionally or personally.  At Careers by Design, we've been helping our clients with this approach for more than 13 years.  


It starts with being silent and getting comfortable with the uncertainty that you face.


Once you are able to quiet the world around you, the options become clearer and you’ll be able to find more clarity and make a decision with a focused mind.



How Kevin and Leslie got unstuck


Let’s take a look at how two Careers by Design clients managed to get themselves unstuck.

Kevin had been working at his position for several months but was struggling with confidence. He didn’t truly believe in his ability to do his job. And this made him unhappy.


A career coach introduced him to HeartMath which helped him learn to manage his emotions. By learning to listen to his heart Kevin grew more optimistic.


He started receiving more praise and work – and he was able to believe it.

Kevin found that he didn’t need to leave his job to get unstuck. He simply needed to listen his heart to find his confidence and happiness.
 
Leslie’s story is somewhat different. She had been working in the public sector for 10 years and was feeling frustrated and unhappy. Stress and anxiety from both her job and her personal life was taking its toll.


Although she already had a meditation practice, her career coach introduced her to HeartMath. This made all the difference.


It helped her to reduce her stress and feel confident about the future

It has also given her the courage to take the necessary steps for a career transition.

She is putting herself out there through networking and is now truly open to new opportunities that may come her way.



What solutions will your heart reveal?


The way to get unstuck is going to vary from person to person and from circumstance to circumstance.

Perhaps you need to ask for training or for mentorship. Or maybe you need to take control and get the training for yourself. Or, that you need to do more networking or get involved in a professional organization. It could even be that i's time for a career transition to something different.


Look within, quiet your mind, and figure out where you would like to be in the next three to five years. Now what steps do you need to get there?


Even if you want to remain in the same job, you will still need to grow.

Determine how you can ensure that you continue to grow.

If you feel stuck in your career, there is help available.


A Careers by Design coach can show the you techniques you need to listen to your heart and make the necessary changes

Attention Students: It’s Time to Start Job Searching

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Attention Students: It’s Time to Start Job Searching

DearFriend,

Last week I wrote to you about how you can transition into a new career if you are an older worker. But what if the opposite is true?

What if you are young, relatively inexperienced in the workforce or a new grad?

In just a couple of weeks, students in Ontario universities will be writing exams and those who are in their final year will be looking for permanent employment.

But why wait until exams are over to start preparing?

Now before you protest that you can’t look for work yet because you are too busy studying – let me explain.

There are simple things you can do now that won’t take a lot of your time. And if you do them now, landing your dream job will be that much simpler once you complete your courses.

Here are a few things you may have time to do before the end of the school year:

1. Make connections. Take time to meet people in your chosen industry. Attend a networking event. Take your favourite professor out for a coffee and ask if she can introduce you to others in your field.

2. Polish up your resume. Start thinking about the kinds of companies that you would like to work for after you graduate and start tailoring your resume to those companies.

3. Clean up your social media. If you don’t already have a professional looking Linkedin profile, the time to create one is now. Also take some time to review your Facebook, Instagram and other social media profiles and remove anything that might cause potential employers to question your employability.

In closing, let me say congratulations on your pending graduation and all the best in your job search!

Feel free to forward this email to the new grads in your life!

To your success,

Is it too late to make a change?

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


It’s never too early or too late for your More Happy Mondays.
Make 2017 your best year yet!

Dear All,

Are you wondering if you are too young (or old) to get career coaching?

Are you not sure what you could work on?

The truth is, coaching may have different priorities at different stages of your career.

A client looking to explore post-secondary programs can gain career confidence and explore a career path that fits.

A more experienced client can learn how to leverage experiences for a position that aligns with their long term goals.

Whether you are at the beginning, the end, or somewhere in the middle, developing resilience can help you flourish in your career.

Resilience happens to be our speciality.

Check out our success stories from past clients at every stage of their career.

If they have found success through coaching, so can you!

To your success,

Encouragement for the Mature Job Seeker

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Encouragement for the Mature Job Seeker

DearFriend,

What’s holding you back from going after your (next) dream job?

People have all kinds of answers to this question, but one common answer that I hear all the time is that they are too old for someone to hire them.

And I get it. It can be challenging for a mature worker to start over in a new position. But it is becoming increasingly more common for employers to hire workers over the age of 50. And the statistics prove it!

Twenty years ago, less than a third of those aged 55 and over were employed or looking for work. But today that number has increased by 10%.

As our country increasingly faces a skills gap, employers are looking to tap into new labour pools – and that includes mature workers – who employers value for their experience and loyalty.

There is a famous quote that says “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” And that quote has never been truer than it is today.

If it’s been awhile since you been on a job search, you might not know where to start. But don’t let that stop you.

You might need a little coaching – but your next career could be just around the corner.

To your success,

Spring Cleaning for Your Job Search

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Spring Cleaning for Your Job Search

DearFriend,

It finally feels like it’s time to put away that winter coat! The birds are singing and tulips and daffodils are starting to poke their way up into the sunlight.

And since tomorrow is the first day of spring, I thought I’d write to you about some spring cleaning that will help you with your job search.

If you’ve been searching for a new position for some time, it might be a good idea to take this change of seasons to change your approach.

Here are a few of my ponderings on how you might just be able to spring clean your way into a new job.

1) Clean your calendar.

Is your calendar in line with your priorities? Do you have time booked in there to develop your skills, meet with a mentor or go to networking events? Go through your calendar, and if you find it is not aligning with your goals, maybe you need to rearrange and focus on what matters to you.

2) Refresh your network.

More and more employers are hiring based on referrals. The relationships you have with others may be your most important asset when it comes to landing that job. Keep in touch with your important contacts on a regular basis and let them know what kind of position you are seeking. You never know where that might lead.

3) Shine up your online presence.

Frequently employers will look up potential job candidates on Facebook or Linkedin before they even call them for an interview. Make sure your social media profiles reflect the type of offer you are looking for. If you have a portfolio that can be shown online, make sure that it is. Having a great online presence that reflects your career goals may even result in recruiters coming to you!

To your success,

How to find a career that fits in a new city, province or country!

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


How to find a career that fits
in a new city, province or country!

Dear All,

Have you always dreamed of moving to a new city, but feared being able to find work when you get there?

Have you moved to Canada, and aren’t sure how to start building your new career?

Many people aren’t sure where to start when it comes to relocating and their careers, but with the three P’s, you can cut your time between jobs to be much shorter!

They are: planning, proactivity and practice!

Plan a visit (if you can) to your new locale, to get a sense of the job market, and companies you could work for.

Be proactive, seeking out support from those both in your industry, or career experts that can get you prepared for the new market.

And finally: practice! To be successful in an interview, it can take some preparation and practice to get it right, especially if there is a difference in language to culture. Practice makes perfect!

We’ve included some more resources to help prepare you if you have moved or are planning to move for your career this week. Enjoy!

To your success,

Is Becoming An Independent Contractor a Smart Move?

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Is Becoming An Independent Contractor
a Smart Move?

DearFriend,

Once upon a time, those who had difficulty landing a salaried job with a stable company had to come up with creative solutions like temping, and freelancing.

Today however, more and more folks are passing on so-called secure positions in order to work in what is now called the ‘gig economy.’

Did you know that contractors, temps and freelancers now make up 34% of the workforce? And according Brad Smith, CEO of Intuit, this number is expected to grow to 43% by 2020!

So is the working in the gig economy right for you?

It depends.

Are you looking for greater flexibility and mobility? Want to expand your network and work on a variety of projects. These are some of the benefits if you work as a contractor.

Of course, to thrive in the gig economy, you are going to need some serious business skills. Are you willing to do what it takes to sell your services to potential clients – over and over?

Are you able to manage your money so that you can handle fluctuating pay? Are you disciplined enough to save what you need for tax time… and retirement?

These are all things you need to consider when you are working in the gig economy. Like anything else, there are pros and cons to doing contract work. And you need to weigh them.

Check out some of our articles below to find out more or consider hiring a Careers by Design coach to help you decide if this option is right for you!

How Halloween can help you with your career!

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Happy Halloween! Tonight is the night to transform. What will you be?

Dear All,

Do you remember the magic of Halloween from when you were young?

You could become any one, any thing, for one day.

What if you could do that for your career: try on something new, to see how it fits?

We often forget that there are so many possibilities for our careers.

And just because you’ve spent part of your career in the wrong one, doesn’t mean it’s too late to find a career that fits.

We can’t become cowboys or cops overnight, but we can start thinking about the possibilities that excited us when we were young.

Don’t let this Halloween scare you, but inspire you to try on something new.

To your success,

The Dreaded Job Interview & How Not To Dread It

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


The Dreaded Interview &
How Not To Dread It
DearFriend,

Certainly one of the most nerve wracking aspects of any job hunt must be the interview. Sure it is exciting to get the call. I mean, someone recognized your potential fit through your resume. You should feel honoured.

But now you have to prove yourself all over again against other qualified candidates. And that can be terrifying. So how do you set yourself apart from the crowd?

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Make a good first impression. I mean really – the hiring manager will decide what they think about you within the first 10 seconds or so. So dress appropriately, walk in to the room confidently, smile, and give a firm handshake.

Remember that 70% of communication is non-verbal. So watch your body language. Don’t fidget or slouch.

Be sure to do your homework as well.

Research the company and position as much as you can prior to the interview. And spend some time thinking about those lovely interview questions like, “What is your greatest weakness?” Be prepared to give thoughtful and original answers.

Finally, remember that you’re there to interview the company as well. Ask questions that will help you decide not only if you are right for the position, but if the position is right for you.

Job interviews don’t have to be scary. They can be an exciting step in your career search. And the better prepared you are, the more exciting they will be.

Need more detailed tips? Be sure to check out the articles in the links below. And if you’d like interview coaching to help you up your game, contact the team here at Careers by Design.

Change your Career with this Powerful Practice

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice



Change your Career with a Powerful Practice of Gratitude  

Dear All,

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you’ve spent the weekend with family and friends: recounting old memories, telling good stories, and eating to your heart’s content.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that encourages us to remember what we have to be thankful for.

Gratitude is powerful and it doesn’t matter if you savour big things like the people who support you or smaller blessings like that hot coffee you treated yourself to this morning.

Practising gratitude recharges our batteries, and prepares us for the week ahead.

It boosts our confidence, and makes us feel more in control of our careers.

And the best part: you can practice gratitude even after Thanksgiving, for benefits the whole year round.

We’ve included some links and an activity this week for practising this skill, as a thanks for your continued support.

To your success,


The Power Of Gratitude

The Benefits of Gratitude, Including For Your Career
Stressed At Work? Try Gratitude Instead | The Globe and Mail


Activity: Morning Coffee Gratitude
One of the best ways to start off your day right is to spend a few minutes thinking of all the things that you’re grateful for.

If you’re worried about finding the time to do this, or finding a way to remember to give thanks each morning, tie your morning gratitude session to your morning cup of coffee.
  


While you’re having your first cup, sit back and think of the things that you’re thankful for. You can even start out by feeling gratitude for the following:

The warmth of the coffee mug you’re holding;The aroma of the coffee;That first sip of coffee;The beautiful morning;The beginning of a new day full of promise;The quiet just before the day officially starts.

When to Quit Your Day Job

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


When to Quit Your Day Job
DearFriend,

Do you wake up in the morning stressed out about having to go to work? Do you sometimes feel like throwing in the towel?

It might be time to quit.

You heard me right. Quitting a job is never a decision that should be taken lightly, but there are times when it is the right move.

As career counsellors, we want our clients to take a step back and assess the situation. By making the connection between head and heart, you may find a solution that will help you love your job again.

But then again, sometimes the answer is polish up that resume and move on.

So how do you know if it is time to quit? There are several possible signs.

Perhaps you have a new manager and no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to please her.

Maybe your duties are being stripped away bit by bit and you’re feeling redundant.

Or maybe you’ve simply gone as far as you can go with your current company and there’s no room to grow.

If you think it’s time to seek out a new opportunity, you don’t have to go it alone.

A career counsellor can help you work through your issues and help you determine whether or not quitting is truly the best choice. And if it is, a counsellor can help you seek out the best opportunities and assist with the transition.

Be sure to check out the articles in the links below. And if you’re at a career crossroads and need help, contact the team here at Careers by Design.

Want More From Work – Just Ask

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice


Want More From Your Work? Just Ask!
DearFriend,

Where do you want to go from here?

If your current job isn’t quite fulfilling your needs or ambitions, this might be a question you ask yourself quite often.

Or perhaps you’re happy in your job right now but you can foresee the day when you will want to take on more challenging tasks.

Before you pull out the classifieds and look for something new, it might be wise to have a little chat with your boss. Yep, you heard me right. It might be time to talk to your boss about your career ambitions and learn about what opportunities might be right under your nose that can help you get to where you want to be.

Oftentimes, the prospect of telling your boss that you want to grow in your career can feel like a scary prospect. But unless you are thinking of changing fields outright, there is actually very little risk in doing so.

If you work for a manager that isn’t receptive to providing you with professional development opportunities, you may have to seek them out outside the workplace or get the help of a career counsellor, but generally managers will appreciate the fact that you are coming to them for professional development.

In fact, you may just plant the seed of opportunity.

By letting your boss know that you are open to accepting more challenging assignments, you could be setting yourself for advancement and career growth. If you’re ready for more, in many cases all you have to do is ask.


To your success,

Are you still making the same career mistakes? Find out how to move on from your past to a brighter future!

Dear All,

Do you remember Sisyphus?

He was sentenced to an eternity of pushing a boulder up a hill, only to watch it to roll back down again, over and over.

Many of us feel a lot like Sisyphus did: working tirelessly to get ahead in their career, only to have it not work out, over and over.

Often people keep trying to forge their careers, while using the same methods, and making the same mistakes.

Sometimes, having an outside perspective can help you see where you may be going wrong.

A coach can help you see what changes you can make to move forward and get your Happy Mondays!

Check out some of our posts from the More Happy Mondays Blog, exploring common career mistakes, and how to overcome them.

Learn how to leave the boulder behind and become the hero of your own career story.
