Your career is a story that is only half-told.
It's time to write your second act!
3 reasons to work with a coach
- Build a consistent set of habits and practices to support your career - up to, but also beyond getting a job or transitioning to a second-act career.
- Benefit from a trusted advisor to help you hold yourself accountable to your own goals.
- Recognize the value of moving beyond your comfort zone to more fully achieve your true potential.
Forget what you think you know about getting a job or starting a business over 50.
The recruiting/hiring process in the 21st century is broken. Recruiters and hiring managers are swamped. They'll spend no more than 6-7 seconds skimming your resume to funnel you through their process.
Ageism is a real problem. Over half of workers over 50 will involuntarily lose their jobs - and it will take them longer to find a new job after a job loss.
To combat this new reality, and get the offers you want to do work you're best suited for, you have to be pro-active, clear about what you do and the value you provide.
