Figuring Out What Job Is Best For Me

Figuring Out What Job Is Best For Me – A little over a year ago I quit my job. I left higher education and jobs. As an early career academic, I love researching, teaching and designing digital learning, but I get bored and burnt out from what I do in my practical role. I’m not interested in going for typical academic roles or positions, and I’ve never thought about being an elite on a university/college campus. Titles, ranks and status are of little interest to me… and very insignificant. Like I said before, I’m more interested in verbs than nouns.

In the last months of 2019, I was fortunate enough to work with several large companies related to higher education as a teacher trainer, research consultant and learning design architect. Although it was fun work, I quickly realized that I really missed being part of a team that contributed to a common vision and goals. In retrospect, part of my job search was actually finding places and places to work outside of academia, challenging what I knew and using my experience while exploring the unknown in new fields. The time spent researching professional roles required me to identify my strengths (basically, research the role of L&D in healthcare below) and understand where I could use those strengths in the next organization I work for. .

Figuring Out What Job Is Best For Me

It’s time to look outside of higher education (yes, that’s an industry too) to see what’s out there and determine what new career opportunities fit my purpose, or why:

On Being An Outsider

Job searches and job applications take time—no matter who you are and when you apply. I resigned because I knew I needed to devote serious time (like work) to the process and not be distracted from what I was doing (like online learning, grading, writing, research, etc.). When I look for employment opportunities from the best training organizations, I am patient and other companies that I know are offering me various job opportunities now and in the future. When I reached out to friends/colleagues, I made sure to get contacts within the company to get feedback on my resume, which cut my resume down from 18 pages to 1 page. , by connecting with recruiters, CEOs, and hiring managers on LinkedIn to learn more about where my personal talents fit. Between November and December, I conducted a series of phone/Zoom interviews and on-site interviews for various roles: Marketing Researcher, Training Manager, Instructional Designer, and Organizational Development Consultant. These jobs span the fields of personal law, finance, insurance, aviation, retail, hospitality, and more. [Note: In 2019, Laura did not continue to hold positions at American Airlines, Hilton, etc. by choosing HR or decision. In hindsight, that was probably a good thing. ] This all sounds fast, but the decision to leave and look for a position was probably made 6-9 months before accepting a new job. Furthermore, this brief synopsis does not include the conversations, informational interviews, job/organization research, and considerations I had before choosing to enter the job market.

Last December I celebrated my birthday as I packed my bags for an 18-day trip to New Zealand. This was all planned before this career/job search crisis, so I had time and space for my latest EPIC trip. We flew to New Zealand and stopped at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) where I got a call asking for a job I wanted, which is what I have now. For those of you who know me, I love to step up (literally), but from the great interview experience, meeting the team I work with, and learning about the great things I’ll be involved in at Thing – I’m super excited. I’m excited about my new job! I am a senior instructional designer in the Global Learning Experience Design (LXD) team, which means I am the project manager supporting learning/training design for Smile’s technical and customer service staff. Our team trains our staff in troubleshooting to support our customers’ devices such as Kindle, Fire tablets, Echo series, digital products such as Amazon Music, Appstore, Twitch, games and software downloads and Alexa.

This original blog post was intended to describe more “about my work” – what I do and how I work with the LXD team – but that’s not really possible since it was in development, I guess. will continue. to change I specialize in several specific areas, but really, I support the priorities and needs of training design to improve customer service. cycle We want to be nimble for whatever 2020 throws at us and flexible enough to fit our teams and the larger organization. As they say, it’s always the first day. I believe this because I’m still learning and figuring out how to do better – while doing all the things I really love – these verbs:

There may be more – but this is my quick list. You’ll often hear me say, “I don’t know what I’m doing…” or “I don’t know…” – and that’s usually true. I learned that failure can and probably will be a great learning experience. It’s not a bug, it’s something we’ve learned, especially if you’re working on something that’s only 70% done before release. I don’t always enjoy everything I do, but I am pushed to go above and beyond the demands of the job. And I’m grateful to be surrounded by some talented and thoughtful professionals who I’m constantly learning from and with—and honestly, everyone at LXD has had different educational, professional, and work experiences. That way, when I need to complete a project or reach a goal, I can always find someone who can complement my own skills and knowledge.

Steps To Help You Answer The Question

That being said, last year I felt like a “stranger” in academia and higher education. I wonder how I can contribute (or influence?) to online learning, openness, student support, and the EdTech peer community. This separation is mostly in my head, or at least until now. I’m trying to figure out how my personality and previous professional experience relate to what I’m doing now. In addition to defined roles or levels in formal education (such as K-12 and higher education), I also “other” the contributions of learning professionals outside the formal education system. Instructional design between higher education and other fields should not be two enemy groups. Experience and expertise are not binary as you might think, but rather complementary.

“They grow up outside of society. They don’t want to fight. They want to belong.” – Outside

Indeed, when these LXD communities come together, we can learn a lot. Although my study design is outside of higher education institutions, we need to share, share and compare more practical knowledge and skills. I know 2020 has brought all the wonder and I personally feel so far away from you, but I’m slowly coming out of my lonely/isolated incubation period. I hope to share more about what I’ve been working on at work and other projects I’ve worked on this year in higher education, edtech, student affairs/counseling, and online learning communities.
