What do you get when you cross a former aquatics instructor (turned career expert) with a CPA, an IT professional, a U.S. Army Vet AND a number of other women with impressive professional backgrounds?
You get an “Upstate Women Returning to Work”/MAP Agency collabo that’s what! In addition to an inspirational personal story and hands-on resume help, here are a few #truthbombs that were dropped on us by Kelli Seawell-Assistant Director of Career Services for The Clemson MBA Program:
- You have to take a step-stepping outside your comfort zone is when real change happens.
- Write your own job description-what is it that you want to do? Where will your talents and experience shine? Life leaves clues…follow them.
- You never know who you might meet- The adage “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is true sometimes, but it’s also “who knows you and knows what you’re doing ”: get involved, network, join a group, take a class.. let people get to know you, what you’re doing and what you want to do.
Are you thinking about returning to work after an extended absence, but don’t know where to start? Or do you need to pivot in your career to re-adjust to life happening around you? Become a member of The MAP Agency. Membership is free, but it does require you to take a step. Like Nike says “Just Do It” because investing in yourself will always pay off!
