This came up in one of my group career coaching calls – One of the participants, Bonnie, was asking about different ways to identify possible career paths that not only would she be interested in, but also qualified for.
When most people come to me they have a list of different career ideas that on the surface look completely unrelated. But, once I start working with them and asking them why they have each idea on their list, themes start to emerge. It’s really cool. You really start to see why they’re interested in each idea, and how their ideas are related to each other.
One of the ways I told Bonnie and the coaching group to find new ideas is to take out their resume, get a highlighter, and start to look for themes in their resume. What similar things have you done in the past? I can almost guarantee that you’ll be able to identify at least two themes you can run with and start piecing your ideas together.
