How to love your job and career

I came across this question yesterday on an online forum for people looking for help from coaches. 

One of the first things you need to do is get clear about what strengths and skills you have, that you love to use, and what your passions are.  Then today I found an interesting description of how to identify your passions.  Now I have written about this topic on my other blog, then today I found this helpful post – and wanted to share this info with you: http://mapmaker.curtrosengren.com/2010/05/most-peoples-concept-of-passion-is-limiting.html.  I love that this process has applications for right now, as well as later. 

If you are feeling frustrated with your job, unsatisfied by your career, this is a great place to start looking. (In fact, I found this article interesting to view in light of my own frustrations as a solo-preneur.)  If you want to love your job, love your career, this is a foundational component.  And yes, you can do this, even in today’s job market.

Client Stories

Lori took my old, tired, out of date resume and transformed it into a resume which got results.  In transitioning from owning a business back to the corporate world, Lori asked the tough questions to dig out all the relevant skills and accomplishments which would catch the eye of a potential employer.   One of the first employers to receive my new resume and customized cover letter (created by Lori) called me for a phone interview, followed by a face to face meeting, and finally offered me a job twenty-four hours after the interview.  I'm convinced I would not have even been able to get my foot in the door without my new resume created by Lori.  As I told my wife, retrospectively, spending the money to work with Lori was well worth it.
