Show Notes

This episode, with Edythe Richards, provides so much support in helping you find your next great job opportunity.  As a career counselor, nationally recognized expert on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®), and Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW), Edythe has helped thousands of Baby Boomers, Veterans, Recent College Grads, Immigrants, and Mid-Career Adults locate and sustain meaningful employment.

Edythe shares her tips/techniques to build your self confidence when you are in career transition, including:

·        Grieve the loss of your job – you may need to take a few days off just to release any negative feelings you have about the loss.

·        Process your feeling externally – your family, friends or a career coach can be a great sounding board for your emotions and help you chart the steps you need to take next.

·        No set time frame – everyone goes through this transition process on their own schedule, don’t think you need to be at a certain spot until you are ready to be there.

·        Be kind to yourself – you might not be able to control what happens around you, but you can control how you behave and represent yourself to the world.
