For this week’s episode, Stacie Parker is back to discuss how he or she job seekers discovers their find purpose. As a career practitioner, many people want help finding a job, but don’t know his or her target career.

Let me tell you a little about Stacie Parker. She is a CPRW, Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) and a Certified Coach. She is currently working on her Doctorate of Philosophy in Organization Development Psychology.
Here are a few highlights from our conversation:
- Stacie uses her studies in Psychology and career coaching knowledge and experience to help his or her individual journey
- A large part of her applied knowledge based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
- Part of Stacie’s technique based on hypnosis and reflection, looking for connections from childhood to now and what they’re good at naturally
- She believes those relationships in what we are naturally skilled at first discovered in their first six years
- Passion doesn’t mean purpose—your purpose doesn’t serve you, but serves others
- Emotional Intelligence is built on understanding and knowing yourself/self-awareness
- Critical to understanding courage is needed to get out of our comfort zone and discovering purpose
- Stacie discusses the importance of visualization, help people leave old stories behind to change the perceptions to build a new narrative
- She explains how this is implemented to help her clients with interview preparation
