  How do you know if it’s you or the job?
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I was talking to my career coaching client, Damon, this week and he asked a great question. I hear this often, so I wanted to share it with you. How do you know if your job is not a good fit for you, versus you just need to improve yourself and work on your skills? There’s no one size fits all answer. Although, it would it be very nice if there was! Here’s how you can start to understand the difference: Remember that there...

  Work smarter not harder – A great example of how to do this
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
I was working with my client Seth this week. He came to our career coaching call very excited with the progress he had made. I wanted to share this quick tip with you: Seth is a high performing individual. He sets high goals for himself and is constantly thinking of new ideas for his work at a custom software outsourcing firm in North Carolina. He would blast into his office in the morning excited to go to work, and at the...
  Chocolaty inspiration to help find your dream job
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
Last night I had the opportunity to speak for Georgia Tech Alumni Association’s Waffle House Career Series. The topic was “Live and Work with Passion and Purpose“. It was an exciting and well attended event. There was great interaction and participation. We discussed how to bring passion into both your personal life and your career. Thank you to all those who came out! Inspiring example: A participant from last night,...
  How to find your dream job
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
I was working with my career coaching client, Margaret, last week and she made a great point. Sometimes it’s hard to identify specific things you want to have in a dream job, especially when you’re not sure what’s realistic or what’s possible and when you don’t have specific examples. If you haven’t had a job you truly enjoy, it can be tough to know what you want to do. This is because there are only a few examples to draw...
  Should you just take any old job?
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
I was talking to a career coaching client recently whose husband works at a large rental car corporation. He has been posting for a job opening for over a month. They have received very few, if any responses to the job listing. I know that most people don’t want to take a job they don’t like or one that would lower their morale. It can be frustrating to think you have to settle with any old job, especially something that is lo...
  The secret to finding fulfillment in your career
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
So how do you know what’s fulfilling for you to help you define your ideal career? The secret is – Values. Values are one of the first things I help my career coaching clients identify in order to understand what would be fulfilling to them. Values are your guideposts to fulfillment and the foundation of figuring this out. Begin figuring out what your values are right away. To figure out what your values are, you can ask...
  The true culprits of job dissatisfaction
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
As a career coach, I consistently meet with career coaching clients who feel they’ve lost their sense of purpose in their work. They want to feel more passionate about what they do on a daily basis, and they often feel their work is the culprit. They feel their boss, coworkers, office environment, monotony of their schedule, or cubicle are the reasons for their lack of excitement and motivation for their work and life. Ho...
  How to network AND get work experience at the same time
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
Struggling to find a job in your industry? Don’t discount the benefit of volunteering. If you volunteer your time in the field of work you are interested in, you still have the option to work a part-time position and make money outside of that industry if needed. This really helps fill gaps in your resume and allows you to network. Two key benefits of volunteering: Networking – While you are volunteering you are able t...
  Online submitting is not DEAD
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
You might think that when you submit to an online application your resume is going into a deep black hole. While it might feel that way, it’s not always the case. I’ve had two career coaching clients recently who submitted to online jobs. One client got a phone call within 2 hours to set up an interview. He didn’t get that particular job but through that person he heard about another job and was able to secure a job within...
