Would you like to be more strategic in your career choices? Would you like to know with confidence when a job opportunity is a fit or not? Would you like to control your own career destiny? If so, you’re ready to create your own unique career manifesto.
- A career manifesto is an understanding of one’s core genius and a plan or career strategy to package it, make a living from it and be of service with it in a way that makes a difference in the world. It’s looking at work not as a chore but as an opportunity to experience meaning and purpose in one’s life, to find an amazing use for one’s talents, and to make a living doing what one loves. To get to an understanding of what one’s manifesto is, its important to Soul Search and Research then Job Search.
- By Soul Searching, one can identify all the elements of his or her ideal career and craft a vision for an ideal day in life at work and at home.
- Then Research is about gathering information and testing out one’s manifesto in the real world to make tweaks where necessary, build credentials where necessary and build a support network of others who buy-into one’s manifesto.
- Lastly, Job Search is about crafting the short and long-term action steps to “manifest” one’s manifesto as his or her career.
I’ve supported many people in developing and creating this type of career manifesto in their lives. When my clients interview, recruiters and hiring managers are impressed by their ability to articulate the type of work they want to do and why. My clients are also able discern the wrong opportunities, respectfully saying “no thank you” to jobs that aren’t a fit. This has opened them up to opportunities that matched the vision they’d imagined. Read their testimonials and understand for yourself how having this type of career strategy can positively impact your career path and decisions.
If you would like to make better quality career decisions in the short and long-term; if you’re ready, willing and able to be deliberate and focused with a strategy for your career, contact me and get started on your career manifesto today.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon
