Ep 44 – How to Pursue a New Career With Passion, Purpose & Yes, And | with Courtney Kirschbaum
Courtney Kirschbaum is a human development and high performance expert who specializes in helping young professionals choose the right career and achieve mastery in it. She also successfully completed her own career transition later in life when she left the corporate accounting world to found CK Consulting.
Now she is launching a new project, Job Hunt School, to impact even more young professionals.
We discuss how pursuing passion and purpose help during career transitions, how the principles of improvisation will help you during the interview process, and the stress epidemic in the U.S.
“They’re still not teaching the things that you are really going to need to know when you walk into the job, and not only on the first day but even before that.”
Courtney started consulting because she saw a leadership and development gap. Students in college aren’t being properly trained to transition from a collegiate environment to a corporate environment, or any other business environment.
She attempts to fill those important gaps:
- Expectations in a corporate environment, and how to fulfill them.
- Office politics, and how to navigate them.
- Empathy for business owners, and how to develop it.
- The value of feeling like you have a stake in your job, and how to attain that.
Consulting is great, but her impact is limited to the number of people she can work with on any given day. She’s reaching more young professionals through Job Hunt School.
Job Hunt School is a program for recent graduates who are spinning their wheels and going through the motions, who feel like they’re doing everything they were taught, but aren’t gaining any traction. You know how to play the game, you went to the career center and learned to write a resume, but you haven’t mastered the game.
Courtney’s program will offer the last 10% you need to master the game, and that last 10% can make a 100% difference in your career.
If you’re interested in securing your spot in Job Hunt School, or you know someone who will be graduating soon, head over to JobHuntSchool.com. The doors open in April 2017!
