What a feeling to receive that final offer, and know, in your heart of hearts that it is the right decision...and that only you will look out for yourself and be a success. I am looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead with this new position, and look forward to the new relationships and friendships that I will build upon.
Why were you inspired to do this?
I am starting to get the itch to find a new opportunity...I have been in the same position for 4 years, and I have loved it...but I am ready for a change, and there arent any opportunities within my company.
I want to take my vast skills and experience, and find an amazing opportunity that will allow me to continue to grow, learn and use my talents...oh, and make more $. It is exciting and scary...with a knot in my stomach as I think of what may be...taking that chance, and believing in me, knowing that I can succeed! I am looking forward to the new adventure!
Goal - To be at a new company/job by August 1st, and be making the $ that I know I deserve.
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
Have a resume that highlights my many skills and vast experience (CHECK)...and the patience to adapt and change it for the different job descriptions.
Support - Networking and talking to people to let them know that I am looking for a new opportunity, and to see if 1) they know of anything, 2) learn about what they do, and see if that may be something that I would be interested doing (informational interviews) and 3) seeing who will be a reference for me.
Time - Making time in my schedule to look at search engines, read job descriptions, and meet with friends, colleagues, acquaintances and recruiters about who I am and what i can do/bring to the table for a new position.
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
Believing in myself...I have experienced many great successes in my career...it is just a matter that I recognize these great accomplishments, and talk with confidence about how great I am ... in other words, put myself first and be selfish...in a good way!
What a success!!! I am proud of my accomplishments, and happy that i ahve overcome the sabouteur that sat on my shoulder telling me that I am not worthy. I am worthy, and it is up to me to believe that I will be a success in anything that I do!
I am so excited for this new challenge!
