“People want to help…” - Avarah Careers

“People want to help…”

These were the words of Bonnie Rumbold, Senior VP and Chief Human Resources Officer at Sallie Mae, as she addressed a gathered group of participants in the University of Delaware’s Women’s Leadership Forum this week.

She was telling the story of her career path, and relating how even when she didn’t know her next step, even when she wasn’t sure of the path forward, she knew everything would be okay because, “people want to help.”

I couldn’t agree more! And yet when it comes to our careers, somehow we worry about “bothering” people. We fret over who to ask, and how to ask. And far too often we stall because asking feels like too much. But here’s the truth: No one ever got ahead in their career by going it alone.

I am one of those people who wants to help. I’ve put together a new, comprehensive guide to walk you through the process of reaching out to people you know, and people you don’t, and asking them to be part of your process as you look for a new job or make a career pivot.

It’s especially designed for use on LinkedIn – possibly the most powerful tool in your job search arsenal if you know how to use it. To get my new Career Breakthrough Guide to How to Use LinkedIn to Get the Job You Want, just follow the steps below. No obligation, no nothing. Because this stuff shouldn’t be a secret and certainly shouldn’t stand between you and your next career move.
