Most people, regardless of their age or experience, move at varying paces through eight stages of career transition. Blue Bridge Career Coaching can help with any one of these stages, with a few of them, or with all of them – depending on your needs. Working with Blue Bridge will accelerate your pace through these stages and speed you to work you love.
Stage 1. Getting to a Place Where You Must Take This Step
Unhappiness in your current job or profession;
Being unemployed or underemployed, and not sure where/how to look;
In a natural or forced transition, e.g., spouse being relocated so you must give up your job; being on maternity/paternity leave and open to considering something else; looking for an end-stage career; etc.
Stage 2. The Deep Work: Completing the Doing-Thinking-Believing Circles
Identifying the skills you love to use;
Identifying what you love to think about – your favorite subjects, fields, content areas;
Identifying your values – what matters to you, what gives meaning to your life, how you want people to remember you.
Stage 3. Brainstorming the “Energy Zone” – the Overlap among your Doing-Thinking-Believing Circles
Stage 4. Naming Your Ideal Work and Developing a Personal Narrative
Stage 5. Creating the First Resume Reflecting New Goal and Narrative (note: your resume will undergo refinement through Stage 6)
Stage 6. Networking and Informational Interviewing (90% of jobs are filled this way)
Stage 7. Closing in on a Handful of Viable Options and Developing Those Options
Stage 8. “Working Your Way into a Job,” Applying for a Job and Landing It, or Creating Your Own Work
