So you guys, I just got featured on LinkedIn News’ Newsfeed! This will mark my 41st time being featured as part of a LinkedIn News post. Here’s to more in 2024!

Please check out this fantastic article by LinkedIn as part of their weekly News editorials from the team at LinkedIn News with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ

You may reach a point in your career where you want to move forward, but not into your boss’ role. Being a manager isn’t for everyone and it’s OK to pivot when you want to pursue a different path. Pew Research found that “53% of employed adults who quit a job in 2021 changed their field of work because their roles no longer suited them.” Avoid being promoted to a managerial role you don’t want by using Quartzโ€™s recommendations to take control of your career without becoming the boss:

  • Set specific goals to hold yourself accountable.
  • Identify and leverage transferable skills.
  • Lean on your network to connect with people in your desired role.

Great stuffย Andrew! Short term? My best advice for career shifters is to deal with this transition by taking a mental break first…then internalize, realize, and visualize. Try to identify your relevance in terms of value to a prospective employer, internalize on what your passions are and some transferable skills and accomplishments to relay to hiring managers, a solid resume and some email communication templates (or cover letter), and a lot of patience and willpower. A good rule of thumb for the job hunter seeking a new role in a new industry is to identify your transferable skills and portray those first on your LinkedIn profile and resume. Reverse engineer your career path from your ideal jobโ€™s description and see what you have and what needs up-skilling.

Think the long game. Have a vision of your dream job. Think of your job drivers. What’s important to you? Time, money, benefits, 401(k), location, product offerings, company image, culture, values, progressive versus traditional setting, remote versus on-location, passionate project opportunities, etc. Each is different for each person. What motivates you? What’s your passion? What can you do that will make you happy in 2 weeks, 3 months, a year?

Also, fun fact, there was a time when I worked with the comedic actor, Ken Jeong, on the Vampires Suck film shoot. He was super kind, funny, and conversational. We cut it up over the Cavaliers and Lebron James, we were in the playoffs that season!
