The drunken walk: how to think about this thing called a career
The common wisdom is you plan a career, but most careers have starts, stops, detours, missteps and occasional highlights. It is a drunken walk to a goal, but a goal that you set.
In audio and media, you can take deliberate steps to get you from here to there even if the ‘there’ changes over time. In this practical workshop veteran audio journalist John Barth will guide you through the steps you need to get clarity and navigate a path forward for your career. He’ll help you figure out how to determine what skills and experiences you need and when, how you move from an ‘its just a job’ mindset to something with purpose and even how to figure out when it’s time to change directions and careers entirely. You’ll learn how to use the careers of others as a blueprint for your own and will also discuss the importance of mentors.
Finally, you will learn to skillfully bypass what we see in so many colleagues – that sense of feeling lost, confused or bitter about where you are NOW, so you are able to approach your career with purpose and a compass. There is no one defined path – but there are things you can do to navigate, excel and demonstrate your value so your impact aligns with income and with some real satisfaction over time and you will leave this class confident that you have the insights you need to know when you are finally ready for the big leap.
You will be emailed a link to the workshop two hours before it begins.
