You do things differently.
Your experience and education may look different, untraditional, or even disconnected to others—but it all makes sense to you.
Looking back on your career, one opportunity naturally leads to another. You’ve never been afraid to try something new, but now you’re starting to feel afraid that your exploring has put you at a disadvantage in your career. You’re not as far along as you thought you’d be by this point and you’d like your title to match your skills.
You’re multi-talented and multi-passionate. You’re interesting and you’re interested in a lot of things. You may even prefer to change the focus of your career frequently. You value freedom and flexibility more than most people which is why you’ve always embraced opportunities to learn, grow, and explore.
Yet, Explorers inevitably start to doubt themselves and their career paths.
Your education and résumé may look so different from your friends’ and co-workers’ that you’re starting to wonder if you even have a career. You haven’t taken an untraditional approach to your career because you’re flighty. You’ve been searching for work that excites you and celebrates your unconventional strengths.
Sometimes you dream about being more traditional. More stable. More consistent.
But you’re afraid. Because you don’t want to be stuck. You don’t want to be bored… and you’d rather work with uncertainty and learning as you go than to feel miserable at work.
I get it.
When I worked in marketing at a Fortune 500 company, my education looked different from everyone else.
I had a master’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and two bachelor’s degrees, one in Psychology and the other in English.
And, my resume?! Well, it wasn’t even close to cohesive… I had a handful of college internships, 18 months of teaching preschool and more than five years in event planning.
It made sense to me, but from the outside, nothing looked connected.
But with the help of a mentor, I discovered that my journey had been the result of me being a curious person, always willing to explore new things.
Even though those were unconventional attributes, I learned how to reframe this as assets. Once I did this, I realized I could make a few tweaks to my résumé and creatively present myself for the job I wanted.
Instead of downplaying my atypical education and experience, I positioned my path as a strength.
I learned how to present myself as a potential employee whose unconventional journey allowed her to bring a fresh perspective to old problems. And the same is true for you.
