How to Open Yourself Up to New & Exciting Career Opportunities with Casey Hasten - Episode #31

Episode #31 - How to Open Yourself Up to New & Exciting Career Options with Guest Casey Hasten

Over the years of my work in this space, I’ve found four levels of careerists: Drifter, Hustler, Established. and Rebel. Unfortunately, many people are caught at the Hustler level (running on autopilot, blindly following a societal career ladder) or Established (working hard to maintain everything achieved after years of hustling). At both of these levels, what keeps women stuck are two things: (1) believing there’s no other path to pursue and (2) “settling for good enough.” In today’s podcast, our guest Casey Hasten shares how she broke out of that Hustler/Established level and opened up a new and exciting world that has allowed her to continue growing and evolving in her career.

In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…

  • Casey’s midlife career pivot journey.
  • Why knowing yourself is an essential component of finding career fulfillment.
  • The power of having people to support you and your career decisions.
  • The importance of testing out career options and what it can do for you.
  • How the job search process has changed in the new world of work.
  • The best way to work with recruiters.
  • Why now is a good time for a midlife career change.
