Making a big career move can be both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. It’s a chance to start fresh, learn new things, and grow your skill set, but it can also be daunting, especially if you’re unsure where to start. So here, we’ll outline the top four ways to prepare yourself for a successful career move.

1. Do Your Research

Learning about your new company, role, and industry is essential for a successful transition. First, take the time to read up on your company’s history, mission, and values. Next, familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of your new role, and understand the challenges and opportunities that come with it. And finally, get to know the industry you’ll be working in. What are the latest trends? Who are the major players? By doing your research, you’ll not only make a great impression on your first day, but you’ll also be able to hit the ground running and contribute from day one.

2. Decide Where You’re Headed

One of the biggest questions you need to answer before making a big career move is where do you see yourself in five years? If you’re planning on moving up the corporate ladder, then you’ll want to ensure the company you’re applying to has room for upward mobility. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a complete change of pace, you’ll need to ensure the new position is a good fit for your long-term goals.

3. Prepare Yourself Mentally

Whether you’re moving to a new city or a new country, it’s important to mentally prepare yourself for the big move. One way to do this is by listening to podcasts about people who have made similar moves. There are many great podcasts, like Leigh Morgan, out there that can help you learn more about climbing the career ladder and how to succeed on your way up. Another way to mentally prepare yourself is by setting realistic expectations. You can’t expect to reach the top in one year if you’re just starting in a new industry. It takes time to build a good reputation and make a name for yourself. So be patient, and be willing to put in the hard work required to get there.

4. Develop A Support Network

One of the best ways to prepare for a big career move is to develop a supportive network. This can include family, friends, colleagues, and even professional mentors. Having people you can rely on for advice and support can make all the difference when facing a major life change. If you don’t have a strong support network in place, now is the time to start building one. Reach out to people you trust and ask for advice. Attend networking events and build relationships with professionals in your field. The more people you have in your corner, the better prepared you’ll be for whatever comes your way.

In conclusion, making a big career move can be a great way to further your professional development and reach your long-term goals. By following these tips, you can set yourself up for success and make the transition as smooth as possible.

Tips For Grassroots Political Campaigning

Two focuses of my blog are General Education and Political Discussions. Many campaigns start on the grassroots level. There are keys to starting campaigns on this level and not everyone can do it. The following contributed post is entitled, Tips For Grassroots Political Campaigning.

* * *

Operating at the grassroots level can be a challenge for lots of aspiring politicians and activists, but it’s where the votes are truly won and lost. It’s important to consider your strategy for grassroots campaigning and how you might ultimately get to where you want to be. We’re going to take a look today at some of the tips and strategies that’ll help most, so read on and learn more.

Develop Some Objectives

First of all, you should try to develop some objectives that you and your team can work towards. What are you actually trying to achieve and how do you see yourself eventually achieving it? If you can answer those questions, it’ll ultimately be a lot easier for you to start working on strategies that’ll help you get to where you want to be.

If You’re Leading a Group, Utilize Each Person’s Strengths

One of the toughest things to be in politics is a leader, there’s no doubt about it. That’s why it’s so important to hone your leadership skills if this is a role you want to assume. A huge part of being a good leader is knowing how to utilize the people you’re leading. Making the most of each person’s key strengths and capabilities will be what ultimately helps you stand out as a strong leader.

Listen to People

An underrated skill in politics is being able to listen. After all, you’re looking to represent people, do positive things, and hopefully make a difference in peoples’ lives. And in order to do all of those things, you need to be willing to listen to people and what they have to say. Only then can you get your ideas across and address the issues that matter to ordinary voters.

Spread the Word with Posters, Signs and Stickers

Simply getting your ideas out there and making your strategy known will make the biggest impact. Good posters, political stickers and signs can have a real impact when placed strategically. It’s all about spreading the word and raising awareness. If you can do that, your political campaigning will end up being far more effective in the long run. There are plenty of resources out there for getting this right.

Build Connections with Other People and Groups

Building connections is something that can matter a lot when you’re building grassroots political campaigns. Networking and collaborating with people who have similar aims and interest is how you build a broader consensus and ultimately get your ideas and messages in front of more people. And that’s a huge deal in politics when you’re trying to grow a movement and ultimately achieve something significant.

If you’re looking to make an impact politically, whether that means as a candidate in an election yourself or simply raising the profile of political topics and subjects that are important to you, the ideas above will help you make an impact. Grassroot political campaigning is tough, but it’s often worth it in the end.

How To Make Yourself A Better Candidate

Two focuses of my blog are Career Discussions and General Education. No matter which career or path in life you choose, you have to think about how to keep improving. The following contributed post is entitled, How To Make Yourself A Better Candidate.

* * *

The job you really want isn’t only the job of your dreams; if it’s as good as you think it is, then it’ll be the job of many other people’s dreams, too. And that means that there’ll be plenty of people applying for the position. Of course, you likely did not need us to tell you that. If you’ve applied to any worthwhile job in your adult life, then you’ll know just how competitive the best jobs can be.

That’s not something that you can change. However, what you can influence is how appealing you are as a candidate. In this blog, we’ll look at some tried and tested tips for doing just that. Take them all on board, and you’ll likely find that you get called for many more interviews than before!

Continue Improving Yourself

You’ll be raring to go once you enter the job market. But a job might not come straight away. In some cases, you might be waiting a while for your dream job to come along. In the meantime, you can help elevate your chances of being successful by continuing to improve yourself. This could take the form of studying courses, improving your skills, or anything else. That way, when you do make it to the interview round, you’ll be able to talk about what you’re currently doing, not only what you’ve done in the past.

Put Yourself In a Position To Succeed

You can enhance your chances by putting yourself in a position to succeed. By this, we mean reading up on what you may need to do in order to be offered a job. Many companies, especially big companies, have their own hiring process, and not every aspect of this process is a mystery. If you were applying for Boston Consulting Group, for instance, then you could learn about the BCG pymetrics test. Google also has its own set of thought-provoking questions that it asks candidates, many examples of which you can find online.

Only Apply For Jobs You Want

It takes a lot of work to apply for a job. Or, at least, it should. If you’re applying for any and all jobs as a way to increase your chances, then we’ve got some bad news — you’ll probably be reducing your chances of receiving a positive response. It’s important to only apply to the jobs that you really want, as this will ensure that you put in the necessary amount of time. While companies do receive a lot of applications, the majority will be pretty low-quality. Stand out from the crowd by really making your application a good one.

Read Widely About Your Industry

Finally, you can show your prospective employers that you’re serious by showing that you know not only about their company but about the industry they work in. If you can show that you have a deep understanding of the industry, then you’ll be making yourself valuable. Employers always want to have experts on their team, and that’s just what you’ll be.

4 Tips For Feeling Less Lonely & Isolated

Three focuses of my blog are Creating Ecosystems Of Success, Health/Wellness and General Education. Loneliness and isolation are powerful feelings and emotions which can have adverse effects on our personal healths. As such it’s important to know how to offset them. The following contributed post is entitled, 4 Tips For Feeling Less Lonely & Isolated.

* * *


Your mental health matters and is an important aspect of your overall wellbeing. The pandemic has made many people feel more isolated, lonely, and disconnected. Therefore, you’re not alone if you are feeling this way currently.

First, accept that this is what you’re experiencing, and then be prepared to take action so you can relieve some of the distress and discomfort that comes with loneliness. Review four tips for feeling less lonely and isolated so that you can hopefully disrupt and shake up your situation and emotions and get on a better path to feeling happy and connected, or at least content.

1. Learn Something New

One tip for feeling less lonely and isolated is to get excited about learning something new. You may have been busy in the past or too preoccupied to teach yourself a new skill. Use the time you have now to learn and grow as an individual and expand your mind. There are many opportunities out there that you can do by yourself or with others. For example, maybe you wish to take up photography, sign up for a cooking class, or learn a new language.

2. Invest in a Good Phone

You can feel more connected and stay in touch with others by investing in a good phone. This way you can hop online to read, research, play a game, or watch a funny video. In addition, there are online forums you can join and engage in conversations with people around topics you find interesting. You can also use your device to text, call, and email others so you feel less lonely and isolated. Going without a working phone may exasperate feelings of loneliness. Therefore, it’s always in your best interest to have a reliable and working phone so be sure to find cell phone repair services if your device breaks or needs to be fixed.

3. Find A Hobby

Another tip for feeling less lonely and isolated is to find a hobby you enjoy. It’s a great way to boost your knowledge, skillset, and confidence and you may end up meeting some nice, new people in the process. For example, you can teach yourself to build furniture and update your place or register for and play a team sport so that you can socialize with others. Getting exercise is also a great way to switch up your routine and can quickly boost your mood.

4. Get Out of the House

What’s most important is that you don’t sit around the house all day every day. It’s especially essential that you get out of the house if you work from home and live alone. Feel less lonely and isolated by coming up with a variety of excuses and ways to get out more. For example, you can go to a coffee shop, go shopping for clothes, take a walk in nature, or volunteer your time. Switching up your routine and getting a change of scenery will be good for you and will likely put a smile back on your face and help you feel more connected to the world.

Why You Should Quit Your Office Job And Work Outdoors

Two focuses of my blog are Career Discussions and General Education. Despite having natural gift for working outside and in blue collar fields, many people were shunted towards white collar education. Some white collar workers arrive at a point where they ponder leaving the office. The following contributed post is entitled, Why You Should Quit Your Office Job And Work Outdoors.

Office jobs tend to pay well but, as we all know, they can be unfulfilling. After you show up for work for the thousandth time, you wonder what it’s all about. Why are you just going to a cubicle every day to type on a computer? Surely, there’s a better way.

When you take a step back and look at your office job for what it is, you see all sorts of reasons to quit. Perhaps you hate your job, or you find the working environment difficult. Maybe the schedules and hours are wrong, or you don’t like the fact that you’re indoors all the time. It feels cloistered and it makes you feel tired all the time.

If you feel dissatisfied with your work, you’re not alone. Many employees are tired of their office jobs and want to move on. More than 80 percent aren’t happy in their current roles, and 79 percent say that they have been passed over for a promotion.

For many, the solution is to work freelance and just do their own thing. But for some, the real problem is the environment. Not being outside can take its toll on your health and happiness in unexpected ways.

Fortunately, there are many careers that allow you to get outside. Construction is perhaps the most obvious. To get into the industry, you will need to book a CSCS test online. Then, once you pass, you can get into the industry.

Other options include marine biologist, lifeguard, geologist, wildland firefighter, and adventure tour guide. Here are some reasons to get outside:

Reduce Stress

Perhaps the biggest reason for getting outside is that it improves your mood. When you are in the open air, you naturally feel better than when stuck indoors for hours at a time, particularly in the winter when the days are shorter.

Stress is a major factor in office work. Many employees feel like they are unable to make progress or move forwards. For some, the lack of physical activity takes a toll on their well-being and makes them feel tired all the time.

Improved Health

A few years ago, the news broke that sitting was the new smoking. Office workers up and down the country rushed to get standing desks (and even desks with treadmills).

Unfortunately, though, there’s no real substitute for actually being outdoors and moving your body naturally. While standing is better than sitting, the body still isn’t moving as much as nature intended. Human beings are wired for space. They want to move long distances.

Then there’s the sunlight issue. That’s another scarce resource in the office but essential for health, in the right doses. Being outside in the sun enables the body to produce vitamin D which is vital for multiple purposes, including preventing disease.

Improved Energy Levels

Lastly, being outside helps to boost energy levels. When we move around, we actually generate more energy in ourselves, both short and long-term. Outdoor careers allow you to combine the need for movement with the need to earn money.

Why Storytelling Matters In STEM Education

Two focuses of my blog are General Education and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). While STEM Education is potentially the most important set of subjects at this time, they still must be taught in a special way, particularly in the form of a story. The following contributed post is entitled, Why Storytelling Matters In STEM Education.

* * *

Storytelling is a powerful way to connect with people, particularly young people. When done well, storytelling can engage your audience and make them feel something. It can also help you connect with people from different backgrounds or teach important lessons.

If you’re a parent, you’ve probably heard that reading to your children is one of the best ways to encourage their love for reading. And of course, reading aloud plays an important role in helping children develop the skills necessary to enjoy reading. Storytelling plays a similar role in the world of STEM education. Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians may not typically think of themselves as traditional “storytellers,” but they can use the power of storytelling to connect with young people and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM. Here are just a few ways you can start telling stories to inspire young people in your life and make a bigger impact with any STEM educational program.

Be a Storyteller

Storytelling is a natural human activity. People use stories to better understand the world and connect with others. When people tell stories, they use words, images, and other elements to create a narrative and make connections between people.

Scientists use storytelling as a way to communicate with the public. They can use simple stories as a way to explain scientific concepts in magazines, or they can create more complex stories to explain a hypothesis. Engineers use storytelling to explain how things work and how they impact the world around us. Scientists and engineers can also use storytelling to inspire the next generation of STEM educators, helping to cultivate a love of STEM in young people. From Popular Science to Nature, using the lessons from literary traditions can make any finding infinitely more compelling, especially to a young or lay public.

Use Videos and Screenshots

Videos and screenshots are excellent ways to connect with young people. You can use these to demonstrate how things work, how things are used in everyday life, and even how the subject is used in games or other media. It might sound corny, but there’s a reason TikTok dominates social media in youth circles.

Showcase Practical Uses of STEM

When people talk about STEM education, they often focus on the importance of facts and science. But what if you don’t have time to research facts, or what if you just don’t feel like doing the science experiment? This is when showcasing practical uses of the subject can be incredibly helpful.

This can be done in a number of different ways. You can share stories of engineers who have solved real-world problems. You can talk about engineers who have made inventions that have changed people’s lives. You can even do field trips that show how scientists are working to tackle issues in real-time. These types of experiences could inspire a traditional STEM career, but the combination with storytelling reveals their real power. The diversity of the fields can become clearer with exposure, giving a young person dreams of being a science journalist or a technology risk consultant.

STEM education is important. It can help students build skills that are valuable in the workplace, and it can inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. But stories are powerful tools for connecting with others, so it’s no surprise that STEM educators should use storytelling to engage their audiences. When you want to use storytelling to inspire young people to pursue careers in STEM, you can use these tips and techniques.

1) What Are Your Skills And Interests?

The first step in choosing the perfect career path is to assess your skills and interests. What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? Answering these questions will help you narrow down your options and choose a career that is best suited for you.

Again, it’s essential to keep an open mind and explore all of your options before making a final decision.

3) Do Some Research

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, it’s time to do some research. Learn about different careers that interest you and find out what the day-to-day duties are like. Talk to people who are already working in your field of interest and ask for their advice.

5 Benefits Of Having A Hobby As A Professional

  1. Taking Time For Yourself

Hobbies force you to take a break from everyday stress and spend time on yourself. Sometimes you have to take a break from stress long enough to disrupt your body’s stress response cycle before returning to action. If you need a short break, you can hike, ride a bike, watch a movie, or have a 5-minute meditation session. The more you focus on your hobbies, the more satisfaction and sense of achievement you will get.

  1. Better Physical Health

Physical hobbies are a great way to stay in shape. Hobbies such as gardening, dancing, yoga, and sports can help us stay active without going to the gym. Getting started is not as difficult as one might think. For example, all you need to play soccer is a ball, some comfortable shoes, and custom gk gloves. And for yoga, you only really need a yoga mat.

  1. Increased Social Interaction

Hobbies can improve your social life. Whether you’re in a club or playing in a league, hobbies are a great way to meet and approach people who have the same interests as you. The older you get, the harder it can get to make new friends who share your interests, but fortunately, the hobbies are something you can regularly enjoy with others.

  1. Creativity

Creativity can allow you to view and solve problems more openly and with innovation. Some hobbies can inspire us to tap into our creative side. Engaging in a creative hobby will help you train your brain to think more creatively in other areas of your life. This can be helpful and extremely enjoyable for someone who doesn’t have a creative outlet at their work.

  1. Hobbies Make You More Interesting

A hobby will give you something to talk about and something you can share about yourself with other people, other than what you do for a living. It will provide you with ‘layers’ because there are now more aspects to what you do every day. They also help strengthen your self-identity because you might see yourself as an artist, photographer, or an actor.

There You Have It

While the benefits of every hobby will differ depending on what you choose to devote your time to and how much passion you put into it, one thing is for sure, having a hobby has several benefits that will help you in the short and long term. Finding something that makes you light up outside of work can seem like a massive task in itself, but it will be worth it to find something that makes you feel creatively and independently fulfilled!
