Mujeres y Allies,
Most of us believe that after we finish college or trade school, our careers will take off when we find the job that matches our chosen field of study. And after landing that first job, we will work at developing our skills, build a strong reputation, and advance each year. It happens but it’s not always the case. In fact, only 27% of college grads secure jobs related to their college majors and as of June 2018, 43% of recent college grads are underemployed---working part time or as contractors on a gig. Even among those already working, only 51% are actually satisfied with their job. If you wake up dreading going to work or you just are concerned that your career choice may not be your true calling, don’t suffer in silence or wrestle with doubt. It is perfectly fine to change careers--in fact the norm now is to have five careers in a lifetime. This week’s #3LVCareerHacks is all about what to do if you think you want to change careers.
Uno, dos, y tres. Let’s do this con ganas.
