Good Monday morning,
Are you considering a switch in your career direction? Do you wonder what other careers might be suited for your education and experience? This week’s podcast is with Susan Basalla, Ph.D., co-author of So What are you going to do with that?. This book was written out of her own journey questioning what to do with a Ph.D. in English from Princeton University. Having decided not to pursue an academic career, she asked the question, “So what am I supposed to do now?”
Due to a change in your employment situation, or through recognizing that you need a change in the direction of your career, you may be asking the same question. The good news is that every year approximately 10% of professionals switch careers or sectors. Don’t underestimate the economy and your ability to move in an entirely different direction. As Susan said, “Strong, independent thinkers can’t help but carving out interesting careers.”
