It’s no secret that I love my job. I started managing internal communications for a company that I love back in January and there are days that I still can’t believe this is what I get to do. I’ve also shared my very non-linear career path with you, but I thought I’d focus on more of the how I got to my latest adventure. As in — how long did it take me to find this job? And when is the best time to look?

You might have noticed that’s it been a little quiet around here these days. I’m trying to create more thoughtful content on the blog, but also my day job has been taking up a lot of my focus and energy. Many of you know that I work for an airline. Well we’ve just come out of four different hurricanes all back-to-back-to-back. During this time, it’s all hands on deck and everyone works around the clock through late nights and weekends, to get the operation back up a running and take care of everyone who has been devastated by the storms. Stressed has been my baseline for the past month, so I figured I’d tackle it here on the blog and share my tips on how to not let it get the best of you.

It’s been a while since I’ve chatted about anything career related, but I recently answered a reader’s question via email and thought I would share what I wrote here with you. A few months ago, I wrote about why/how I switched career industries three times. I feel incredibly lucky that with each opportunity, someone took a chance on me instead of questioning why I was looking to make a change in the first place. Unfortunately, not all employers are that open to different perspectives and experiences. Here’s how to dispel the naysayers.
