Career Corner: Four Perks to Being Single and on a Career Search Part I

If you're unhappy in your job and also single, you may not think this is the best time to begin a career search or career transition. Maybe you’ve told yourself, "This isn’t a good time because it’s just me. There’s no one to lean on and offer support, financially or otherwise."

I want you to know that this is not true. In many ways, there is no better time to work on your career than when you're single.

I'm a certified career coach and I work with people like you who are in career transition and in need of guidance and support. There's a special place in my heart for single career seekers. It wasn't so long ago that I was single myself and experiencing the same exact fears and feelings as you are.

Even though it may not always seem this way, there is an enormous amount of help and support out there for singles wanting to make a career change. It's a great time to learn, grow, and explore your many talents and personality traits. Over the next few blog posts we'll be looking at 4 reasons why it rocks to be single and on the prowl for a fab new career! Here's reason #1:

1. You have more time to focus solely on your career search.

Being in a relationship requires time and commitment. You want to spend quality time with your partner. When you’re single, you have more time and energy to focus on your career search. And let’s be honest, more freedom to make any choice you want to in terms of the location or type of job you choose.

Partnered career seekers have more to consider when making a career change. So see your single status as a blessing because it is in many ways. You're free, you're available, and you've got all the time you need to discover the job of your dreams.

Stay tuned for reasons #2-4!

Here's to having a career you love!
