” A job that captures your imagination.”
Hate it! You’re competing with yourself.
Getting out there is a challenge, and because it’s a consideration, you are winning. What’s keeping you from contributing to conversations, articles, and other conversations where your input is valuable? How about bringing some of that bravado (20+ years) to the party? Just don’t mention your years of experience as the authority magnet.
Networking is your gateway to get in front of the right person(s). Just as you had to find people in the Yellow Pages, you’ll need to use online tools to find HR managers, hiring managers, and referrers. Last winter’s podcast with HR Executive Sarah Morgan, she reinforced how connecting with HR people online has the potential to lead you beyond submitting a resume.
Focusing on the value of your work ONLY. If you’re always running your best race, does it matter what others are doing? When I see people doing well, and I feel a bit envious, I send the person a congratulatory note! But it’s a humbling process when you’re unsure of the impact of your work.
