Synopsis

It’s never too late to change career paths, and David L. Van Rooy, author of Trajectory: 7 Career Strategies to Take You from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, published by AMACOM, shares with us the steps needed to reach your goals. Having an idea of the kind of job you want is only the first step. You also need to plan ahead and slow down. Like a couch potato aiming to finish a marathon, you must start out small—by training to finish a 5K first. Listen as Van Rooy describes turning a failure into a positive, including how to shift gears when something unexpected happens and how to ask for the right kind of feedback.
