- The importance of getting clear on your values

Getting clear of your values- Anjuli took the time to get clear on her values early in the career change process which made it easier for her to identify opportunities that were ideal for her.
Staying committed to your goals - Anjuli made her commitment to change her career and leaving her 10 year teaching career in 2020. Despite her plans to transition promptly life happened! She was forced to press pause on her plans but was committed to make her change regardless of how long it would take.
Two years on and she was able to make a transition that allows her to live the flexible life style that she desires as a mother of two.
She made honoured her commitment and kept taking action (even if small at times) to ensure she achieved her goal.
Sometimes you need to slow down, but know that if you stay focused you will achieve your goals.
Reposition your experience to attract different opportunities- Initially Anjuli had no idea how her teacher experience would translate in other settings or industries.
She took the time to learn about different opportunities through research and networking.
When she identified two roles that she was interested in different industries, she had to position her experience differently for both roles.
Through making targeted applications which focused on the needs of the role and goals for the organisations she landed two compelling roles and had the opportunity to choose.
If you are on a career journey, be inspired and know that your ideal role is out there waiting for you!
