Career Change: Should You Stay Or Go?

Online via Zoom

About this event

Thinking about a career change? Dreaming about a new job in a completely different industry but afraid to take flight? You're not alone! In fact, our community is full of women who have taken courageous steps into uncharted territory.

Last month She Mentors member Lori Scinto reached out to our community on Facebook to see who had switched careers later in life... and the post blew up with inspiring stories! So what better way to share our experiences than through a Group Mentor Hour?

In this session, you'll hear from guest speakers (your fellow members!) who've navigated career changes. You'll discover how you too can tackle this murky, sometimes scary, transition to find a more rewarding career.

Lori is an entrepreneur, adventurer and animal enthusiast. She'll be speaking to Jude Stevens, a leader in financial services turned founder of Styling by Lumiere, and Lory Costa, She Mentors' very own Full-Stack Software Engineer.

We'll discuss:

👉 Why you might be thinking about a career change
👉 The benefits that a career change brings
👉 Obstacles you might face (i.e. your own fear, roadblocks from your current work)
👉 Planning a new career pathway
👉 Mistakes and lessons learned along the way
👉 Advice from career changers who've been there and done it!
