Career Crush: 5 Highlights from A Conversation with BossedUp Founder Emilie Aries

If you missed the Career Crush conversation I had in April with BossedUp’s Emilie Aries, here is your opportunity to watch the replay!

Career Crush is an opportunity to watch a live online broadcast focused on authentic career stories from professionals in a variety of different fields, and on April 27th, that professional was me!

During my conversation with BossedUp founder Emilie Aries, I shared stories of my beginnings as a career development professional at a private liberal arts college in New York, the positive impact a marketing background can have on one’s job search, and how living a happy and sustainable life can translate to a happy career.

Some other key highlights:

  • How knowing the two “C”s of career success – clarity and confidence- can improve your job search.
  • Why your value and worth is not hinged on getting any particular job (even the one you want the most!)
  • Why you might pursue a job you “like enough” in favor of a dream job
  • How to draw boundaries around your time, particularly in regards to working during after-work hours and managing expectations around responding to after-work hours emails.
  • What you miss out on when you are constantly connected to your email

I’d love to hear what your key takeaways are! Post them in the comment below, or tweet them to Emilie @EmilieAries or @BossedUpOrg. You can also tweet me  @_AskVictoria.

I became acquainted with Idealist in late 2000 while working in the career development office at a private liberal arts college in NYC. I used it almost daily to help students and alumni find meaningful careers. After a 12-year stint in higher education, I worked as a career coach for professionals in various industries (and still used Idealist). During one of those many searches, a listing really caught my eye- the one for the newly-created position, Careers Program Coordinator. So... I jumped at the opportunity. Since then, I took on the role of Manager of Career Content for Idealist Careers, creating career content for job seekers, leaders, and other nonprofit professionals. Understanding the roles that a positive outlook and holistic self-care play in career success, I've shared with our readers time-honored methods for improving confidence and productivity. Now, as Manager of College and Professional Development, my focus is on lifting the advice from Idealist Careers "off the page". Drawing from my experience in career development, I propel job seekers and career changers towards taking control of their searches with confidence and removing fear, uncertainty, and other blocks to success via in-person workshops and seminars, webinars, and conference programming. My great loves are cooking (preferably without a recipe, otherwise I doctor it up), dancing, live cultural performances, identifying the tasting notes in a good cup of coffee, exploring neighborhoods for hidden gems, and anything else that sparks the senses and allows me to experience all the beauty, dynamism, and intrigue that vivaciously living in a remarkable world offers.
