Research from Harvard | The challenges at the mid point in your career

Are you a mid level professional? In what ways do you find your job search more challenging? What are some of the key reasons for career dissatisfaction at this point in your career? This weeks podcast is Part 1 of The 6-Figure Job Search Webinar | Knowing & Branding Yourself with Anthony Haul, founder of HigherBracket.ca Canada’s leading career website for the 6-figure professional. I invited Anthony to participate in this 3 part series, as we both work extensively with employers and individuals who are looking to advance.

At the midpoint of your career you are entering a new phase that Harvard Business School terms, middlesence. You are aged between 35-54 and make up more than 50% of the workforce. In a study of 7,700 midlevel professional for the article from Havard Business Review, shows some surprising results.

30% Working more than 50 hrs per week.

36% In dead end job.

43% Passionate about job.

33% Energized by their job.

40% Experiencing burnout.

20% Seeking a new role in a new company.

What are your thoughts? Many professionals stay stuck rather than take action. This is a very dangerous thing to do at this point of your career. Anthony shared “The higher up the food chain you go quite frankly, there is a lot at stake from both and employer and employees perspective” I agree with Anthony, there is a lot at stake. A better career is a better life. Don’t stay stuck, your too smart and have too much to offer and life is too short.
