Some Career Resources

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe that it is almost the end of February. This year is already flying by…

This newsletter is going to be a bit different this month. I have quite a few resources to share.

I have posted them to my LinkedIn feed, but you may not have seen them, so I want to share them here.

I will give a quick explanation and then the link to the corresponding post/registration link. If you resonate with the topic, appreciate the information, I would appreciate your showing that with a “Like” and or a Comment. I encourage comments because I encourage engagement. We are all in this together!

So, here goes:

·     This year’s CA Conference for Women, being held in person on March 1st in Santa Clara and virtually on March 2nd, has some really outstanding and inspiring speakers lined up:

I am honored to be a member of the ICF (International Coach Federation) credentialed/certified virtual coaching team this year.  

Once you sign up for the conference, the platform will open on the morning of March 2nd and you can sign up for a coaching slot with one of the many executive coaches, career coaches, or resume coaches that are available during that time slot.

I hope that you will consider taking part in the conference and trying out coaching if you haven’t experienced it previously!

On the topic of using transferrable skills across industries, I recently shared a LinkedIn post about Angela Ahrens, whom I have been following for years. She made the transition from fashion to tech to nonprofit. Hers is an inspiring story and I recommend watching the full interview:

Lastly, I have two books to suggest:

Lindsey Pollack: “Recalculating: Navigate Your Career Through the Changing World of Work”

Dorie Clark: “The Loooong Game: How to be a long-term thinker in a short-term world”

As always, let me know if I can be of service as you transition into your next chapter at work or in your life.

Until next time,
