Yesterday’s Career Conversations workshop focused on your why statement. Since it’s not a topic discussed in school, it can be difficult to grasp and truly appreciate. With that in mind, we decided to tailor our message to that of discovering your why. In its essence, your “why” represents your purpose.
- Why do you wake up in the morning?
- Why this job?
- Why this career?
What is your ultimate purpose? When you develop a strong understanding of your why (or your purpose), answering questions like “what are you going to do with your life” or “what do you do” or “what do you want?” become much easier to answer. Same goes for crafting resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, and interview questions.
In the context of our career mentoring workshops, understanding you or your why helps you craft compelling elevator pitches, which we’ll discuss in next week’s Career Conversations workshop. Click here to RSVP.
Here’s a brief recap from yesterday’s workshop.
