Why “Squiggly Careers” is my favorite buzz word for 2019
My favorite career buzzword for 2019 is “Squiggly Careers”. I have to credit Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis for this genius description of how our career ladder has shifted. Click on the video below to learn what “squiggly careers” means to me and why storytelling can be a powerful tool in your job search to help employers connect the dots between your jobs, career pivots and freelance work.
I’m a former corporate recruiter and industry “insider” who got tired of seeing talented high-achievers get passed over for opportunities because they did not have the right marketing documents or know how to position themselves in interviews. I have relocated multiple times across the country as a “trailing spouse” and have had to execute job searches in completely cold markets (where I literally knew no one!)
I have been named a LinkedIn Top Voice in the career space in 2019, HR Weekly’s Top 100 Most Influential People in HR, named the owner of the “best resume writing firm for experienced executives” by Balance Careers and a “top follow” by JobScan in 2019 and 2020.
