  Dig below the surface to define your the ideal career!
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2012
I was talking with my career coaching client, Margaret, the other day. She was giving me positive feedback on our career coaching process, which of course is always great to hear. One of the things we discussed I wanted to share with you, because it’s something you can do to help you define your ideal career direction. Many people I encounter have thought about their career direction but wind up confused with either too many o...
 
  4 steps to help you meet your career goals!

I had the privilege of being on a radio show for Q100 here in Atlanta last week. We talked about staying on top of New Year’s resolutions. Here are 4 steps to help you meet your goals that I shared on the show: Create a job search plan that includes your ideal career direction, plus two other possible ideas related to it, in case you need to expand your search over time. Firm up your elevator pitch. What makes you uniq...
 
  How to spice up your job search today!
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2012
A key element to spicing up your job search is to ask for information. After working with many career coaching clients recently, I’m finding that people aren’t using the right networking strategy for their job search. Here are some key tips to spice up your job search: Informational interviews are resonating and helpful in your jobs search. Talk to the people in your network who work in an industry you want to be part of....
 
  Do your fears outweigh your passions?
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2012
I was talking with my career coaching client, Damon, the other day and he brought up a great point. He shared with me that in his previous job he was always motivated by the fear of not making sales, opposed to the passion for making them. As he was trying to find career fulfillment, he decided this was not something he wanted to continue. Until we looked at it, he had never realized that his motivation came from that fear rat...
 
  The Key for Unemployed Job Seekers
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2012
If you are an unemployed job seeker, your job search might be more difficult because you don’t already have a pre-existing schedule to help you establish a structure for your search. There are pros and cons to being an unemployed job seeker. You have more time than those who are employed, but you also have to create your own structure and schedule from scratch to ensure you’re effective in your job search. I recently spoke...
 
  Pick up the phone – Schedule informational interviews today!
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2012
I was on a group coaching call a few weeks ago and my client Farah shared a great success story. Farah has decided that she wants to become a medical illustrator. As part of her research into this field and to learn more about it and whether it would be a fit for her, I suggested she try to find illustrators she could talk to for a few minutes to learn more. She didn’t have anyone in her network so she found an association...
 
  A confusing riddle: What career is best for me?
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
Do you ever ask yourself, “Why is it so hard to figure out what career is best for me?” Sometimes it feels like you’re running on a hamster wheel, or moving through a dense cloud of fog with no clear destination in sight. You are not alone! I frequently work with highly educated, wonderfully successful clients who wrestle daily in the career decision-making fog. Interestingly, no matter how smart you are, and even how well you...
 
  Go with your grain
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I recently gave a speech at the GA Tech Alumni group. They are a wonderful group of people who are really committed to finding greater fulfillment in their careers. We talked about the analogy of painted versus stained wood that I normally use in my speeches. It’s about not letting your authenticity be painted over so to speak by a coat of paint, like paint over wood. Instead, imagine that you use stain instead to bring out, o...
 
  How do you handle awkward moments in job interviews?
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I was talking to a friend the other day, and she told me about her brother who went on an interview at a daycare center in Kansas and they told him during the interview they don’t typically hire men. Oops! That’s not something that’s smart for an interviewer to say (and why were they interviewing him anyway?) It’s an awkward situation for the candidate. How would you handle this? A good solution could be to simply ask them...
 
  Can you find your dream job on your own?
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
A lot of potential career coaching clients will ask me, “Why do I need a career coach, can’t I figure this out on my own?” The truth is, usually they haven’t figured it out on their own, which is why they’re talking to me. What I tell them is this, “Yes many people can, and have figured out their career direction without the help of a career coach, which is great!” I’ll admit that I’m a little jealous of those people, because...
