If you’re like most leaders in 2020, you’ve been going along your career path – starting to think that there’s a next chapter to be written for you somehow – but not quite sure what that path is, yet. And now, with the current economic climate, you’re helping lead your company, community and family through turmoil, while wondering what the future holds for you, at the same time.
If you’re an executive, you could be pondering your next executive move, dealing with a layoff or exit, pivoting to something new, or thinking about giving back and expanding into board roles (nonprofit or corporate).
If you’re an older worker, you may be worried that opportunities are fewer as you get later in your career. You may be feeling like you’re not sure where to best apply the experience you have, or how to stay active and income-generating well into your “retirement” years.
You may be selling a business and pondering what to do next – another venture? Go into the corporate world? Jump into the Gig Economy?
Or you may coming back to the workforce after a life change (caretaking, divorce, illness/death of a loved one).
Here’s the tricky part when you’re no longer a mid-career job seeker: Traditional, middle-of-the-road job search approaches won’t help. You need a specific game plan that uses your experience as an ADVANTAGE rather than a hindrance, is tailored to the Hidden Job Market and that uses today’s technology and tools to speed up your process.
