A Quick Exercise to Identify What You Want to Do and What IndustriesYou Should Work In
College has given you the knowledge you need in your chosen discipline and allowed you to explore other topics of interest. You’ve made lifelong friends and spent hours debating which philosopher rings true, or which accounting system is top notch, among many other things. As graduation grows closer you likely have the same gnawing feeling all college grads have – now what? What am I going to do with my career?
Shaunna will share a quick and simple exercise you can use to drill down to the important, fundamental elements of what you believe a successful career to be, and then tell you how to use the information to create a roadmap you can use to guide your career.
Shaunna will discuss three important career management techniques you can use again and again:
- List 3 things you like to do and 3 things you don’t like to do. For example, perhaps you like (or don’t like) crunching numbers in Google sheet; or creating presentations; or talking to people.
- Figure out what’s important to you. What are your top 5 values?
- Don’t get stuck looking in just one industry. Your skills set is transferrable. The key is figuring out the language translation from one industry to another.

You desire a career that energizes you. You want to do your best every day and be challenged by the work you do. You are either a top performer looking to up your game or someone who isn’t sure what path to take. You may be a manager of top-performing team or one that hasn’t quite gelled. No matter where you fall, I can help you explore what sets you or your team apart.
As an innovative career coach I can help you discover what makes you different from everyone else. I help you understand what skills you have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be. I help you understand what skills you (or your team) have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be.
Together, we focus on what you are doing right, instead of what you are doing wrong. I give you the tools to figure out your natural abilities and recognize when you are using them. I show you how to describe your talents to those you work with and how to consistently apply them toward a goal.
I know what it’s like to be amazing at your job and still feel like you’re not doing the work you love. For more than 20 years, I worked for a high-tech company managing people, projects, websites and events. I built my career year-by-year, taking on new challenges, learning new skills and continually asking my boss what’s next?
I am so inspired to work with people every day who just want to be better. They want to take their career to the next level or have clarity around decisions regarding their career. I give them the tools I was given, guide them to their a-ha moment and then watch them soar.
