7 Ways Career Conversations Change Your World
August 02, 2012
What is a career conversation?
At Inside Jobs, we defined it as something, anything, that gets you thinking, talking, and informed about careers. Career conversations help you:
1) DISCOVER POSSIBILITIES
Career conversations empower you to see all your options for your future—even ones you’ve never heard of before.
2) KNOW YOURSELF
Career exploration helps you understand more about your interests, your skills, and your values.
3) BE CONFIDENT
Discovering a career goal helps you feel more self-confident.
4) GET THE RIGHT EDUCATION
Whether you’re going after a certificate or a 4-year degree, exploring careers makes you more likely to choose and succeed in the right education pathway.
5) SAVE TIME + MONEY
Knowing what you want to do after school helps you waste less time and money to earn a certificate or degree.
6) CONNECT TO YOUR TRIBE
Career conversations connect you with people who have the same ideas, challenges, and questions as you.
7) BE HAPPIER
Exploring career options raises your chances of finding a career path that will make you happy.*
In short, career conversations help you create a confident future.
That’s why the Inside Jobs team is dedicated to sparking as many career conversations as we can! We’re providing tools like our Career Finder, creating spaces to talk about the future like this blog, and getting people involved through our #1MillionSparks movement (coming in September—stay tuned!).
