Were you taught to 'adult'? We weren't.
When you leave school, you get given a big book that outlines how to apply for roles, what to say, what to wear to an interview, how to ask your intimidating boss for a promotion, basically a sweet outline on how to 'adult'.
Kidding, there's no such thing. You got worried for a second that they missed you huh?
As the great Yoda says "You must unlearn what you have learned". Yep, we went there.
Looking for a role, wanting to change your career or to seriously hack your way into a role upgrade doesn't come easy. Going through this process is not just overwhelming, its downright frustrating at times and we have to look at it with fresh eyes and from a new perspective.
You may find that you get advice from industry professionals during the application or recruitment process but it is not usually tailored to your specific needs. You know why? Because no one is like you, no one has your motivators, drivers or dreams.
Pick up that light saber and we will show the ways of the Force. Plot twist! We ended with the bad guy...who ends up being the good guy. If you don't know what we're talking about, there is more work to be done after the work is done.
Ready for more, young Jedi?
