First things first! Before you begin to go skipping through the grassy field with your kids like some 2020 Mary Poppins, Tanika shared a few tips on where to start when you are ready to rehab your career.

Rehab evaluation
Ask your self the hard questions
Self-reflection
Do I have the skills needed?
Should I do this as a side hustle until I get some stability?

Making the decision to become a full-time entrepreneur is major but that is not the only career rehab that it is referring to. This list relates to our seniors as they prepare to go into a much different senior year and college experience. It speaks to the parents who are preparing to go back to a job while their children’s schools are closed. Oh and we can not forget about the many people all over the world who lost their job when the quarantine began. There are many who has some hard decisions to make about their career journey within the next few weeks.

In this episode, Kanika also hit on some key points like:
Traditional vs. non-traditional education
Online learning programs
Internships
Where seniors and college students should focus next
Virtual career fairs and more.

You are in a great position to turn any anxiety that you may have into accomplishments by learning new skills. Looking at how much the tech industry has shifted you can create a plan of action for a career shift no matter what level you may currently be on. Take some time to tap into your creativity and look at your setback as a setup for success.

Fail forward! Kanika shared a gem that I believe that many can relate to as we enter into our more mature years. Learning to receive constructive criticism and advice is wise on our part. Seeking out experts who will share about building wealth, real estate, credit, or investing will serve you well. Don’t get overwhelmed by the information. You can focus on one area. Listen in on today’s episode and let us know in the free group how you plan on rehabbing your career.
