The World is Changing: Take the Wheel.

We're living in a dynamic era. From AI redefining the workplace to delicate economic balances, sitting idle is no longer an option. Gone are the days when an employer would steer your career ship. The market is a sea of endless possibilities and occasional storms. It's time to take the wheel and set your course!

Five Power Moves to Revamp Your Career Path!

Helene shares these power moves that, when implemented, can radically transform your career trajectory.

  1. Clear Statement of Your Goal: Knowing the destination is the first step to any successful journey. If you're unsure, it's time to engage in some soul-searching. Consult a career coach, read books like Designing Your Life and Designing Your Work Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, or utilize online job databases like Indeed to explore positions that pique your interest.
  2. Professional Resume: Your resume is your golden ticket; it must be spot-on. Focus on a tailored resume that speaks the language of your future goals. Steer clear of poorly formatted, typo-ridden resumes. If you need help, don't hesitate to seek professional assistance. The goal is to have a resume that lists your responsibilities and highlights your actions and the results you've achieved. A tool like and the book The Job Closer by Steve Dalton can be your allies.
  3. Optimized LinkedIn Profile: Think of LinkedIn as your interactive resume. Here, let your personality shine! Write in the first person, optimize your profile with keywords, and engage with the community. Build your brand, connect with mentors, and engage in discussions. Remember, LinkedIn is a treasure trove if used wisely.
  4. Network Like a Pro: Networking is not a dirty word. It's an art form where acquaintances can become allies and advocates. Build your network with authenticity and purpose. LinkedIn is an excellent tool, but strive to achieve over 500 connections for the algorithms to work in your favor. For tips, Steve Dalton's The Two Hour Job Search is invaluable.
  5. Job Search Strategy: Blindly sending out job applications is like throwing spaghetti on the wall. Develop a targeted and strategic approach. Rely on your network; don't just be another statistic in job applications. Make your moves count!

Make Things Happen!

Employers seek individuals who can make things happen, collaborate, lead, and solve challenging problems. Align your skills, passions, and evidence of your capabilities with these traits. It's not about waiting for the next opportunity but creating it!

Don't let your career “happen to you”; instead, be the architect of your career path by employing these five power moves.

Get in the driver's seat and turbocharge your career path!
