  • Purpose Driven Career Case Study With Michael Pittman
    08/06/2022 - Kori Burkholder
    How to Identify and Leverage Your Transferrable Skills to Advance Your Career

     

    When Michael came to us five months ago, he needed help redefining his career path. He is a 31-year-old professional who was going on one career path in teaching. This career path fell into his lap and, over the years, became his security blanket. The problem was that he became so good at it that he became an invaluable employee.

    But, he admitted to himself that he was miserable, stressed, and ready to find something that fulfills more of his purpose, plays to his skills and strengths, and pays off his student loans. But, he had a big question mark coming in…how do I leverage my transferrable skills to advance my career and also plagued by the thought, am I  too old to switch careers now?


    Here is Michaels's career transition journey:

    How to Turn Your Skills and Passion Into Your Dream Job and Life

     

    When Kristen reached out to us for the support she had been in a highly stressful reality tv producer role for the last six years. She was burnt out and wanted to find a job that met her personal and professional requirements. Not just the title or salary, but inspired by the content of the work, working with co-workers she likes, and having a good working relationship with her future boss. She also dreamed of a flexible working schedule that would allow her to focus on other passions outside of work. She used to be an on-camera host for small companies in their training films and participated in other entertainment hosting projects. It was a side gig that allowed her to express her passion, thoughts, and opinions on the world in a positive way.  

     

    Here is Kristen's eight-month journey from leaving a toxic work environment to landing her dream job at CMT that utilizes her skillset and allows her the space and support to pursue her passions outside of work.

    Creative and Nature 3-Day Women's Weekend Getaway In The Poconos

     

    A recent study found that working women faced a "perfect storm" from pressures at home and work because of the pandemic. 

    Sound familiar? When does your workday start and end? Are you working more than you were before the start of the pandemic?

    I'm finding that some women I work with are working more and feel more lonely. They don't necessarily want to go back to the office, but they crave more in-person interaction and community.

    Is "adventure" one of your values? 

    Adventure, freedom, and flexibility are high on the values list with most people I work with. However, each person typically has their unique definition, but "adventure" often has the word "travel" in there.

    Most people I work with don't want their lives to revolve solely around their careers. Sure, they want their job to be fulfilling, rewarding, and meaningful, but they also want time off to fulfill their "adventure" value.
