One of my favorite weeks of the year is here – Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a great week, filled with happiness and love.
And, speaking of love – do you love your job? I recently took a CNN.com quiz called, “Is your job awesome?” As I expected, my job was rated as awesome. What would you rate your job?
The quiz includes questions like:
- Do you like what you do?
- Is your job low stress?
- Does it benefit society?
After you answer these questions and a few more, the CNN Money poll rates your job’s awesomeness. And, even better, it compares your answers to the other people who have taken the quiz. As of today, over 8,500 people have responded.
If you’d like to rate the awesomeness of your job, check out their interactive poll here.
And, if you don’t love your job, now’s the perfect time to do something about it! The job search season is just getting warmed up. Companies are posting many new positions and there are job fairs happening all over the country.
But, before you start, you should ask yourself how prepared you are. How ready are you to jump into the deep end of the pool? The job market is still very competitive. You need to ensure your resume, LinkedIn, and overall personal brand are up to date and polished.
If you find you still have work to do, I’m happy to help. You can reach out to me directly here to setup a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your goals.
I will also be presenting my workshop, “Branding Yourself,” on Tuesday, February 24th at 6:00 PM at Christian Brothers University in Memphis. The workshop is presented as a partnership between the 2nd annual Multicultural Career Expo, Christian Brothers University, and Copeland Coaching. The event is free to the public, so please mark your calendar if you’d like to attend.
Also, be sure to subscribe to my Copeland Coaching Podcast on iTunes and Stitcher where I discuss career advice every Tuesday! If you’ve already heard the podcast and enjoy it, please consider leaving a review in iTunes or Stitcher. Thanks.
Happy hunting! And, Happy Valentine’s Day!
