Career transition can be the appropriate move to make at midlife
In this interview,Ginny Clarke shares how she helps midlifers embarking on a career transition use what she calls the “Career Mapping” process to facilitate the transition.
Ginny assists the individual in career transition by developing a road map to figure out what they really want to do with their work life and then specific directions on how to get there.
No matter what phase of their career they are in - climbing the corporate ladder, launching a new business, soul searching in anticipation of retirement, or just starting out - Ginny delivers expert guidance on how to get what they really want.
Ginny has developed a specific career transition process that enables you to create your own unique career map. Whether you are entering the job market for the first time or you’re a chief executive officer contemplating your next move, using this career map will help you sort out your options and give you confidence that you are heading in the right direction.
You can refer to Career Mapping again and again as you move through the stages of your career. Just as pilots are constantly correcting for various factors en route to their destinations, small adjustments in response to feedback and stimuli are in order if you hope to touch down safely where you intended.”
