Finding a Job You Really Want - Clare Harlow

Clare Harlow (Career & Life Coach and Consultant) presented an informative workshop on finding a job you really want. She began with a problems checklist and encouraged participants to mention problems faced during a job search.  She shared a handout about the Comprehensive Emotional Scale and explained which part of the scale one should be on to achieve success. She discussed the steps to finding work that fits one's life. One has to ponder on answers to questions like Who are you? What’s important to you? What do you like to do? Where do you want to work? …etc. Based on the responses, one should create an action plan. Brainstorming your ideal job questions is important. For example: What advice would you give yourself at this time in your life? Imagine you were interviewing ‘you’ and answer questions like - What 3 major choices brought you to this point in your life? Looking back, what 3 things do you wish you had tried? Clare concluded the workshop with 18 ways to find work and explained that doing a self-inventory had an 86% success rate in finding a job. She said, “What you believe will happen is a factor in your outcome.”
