25: "Owning Your Story: A Love Note to Job-Hoppers" with Carolyn Birsky, Career Coach
The average job tenure for workers aged 25-34 is three years, which means in our 40+ years of working we'll have a lot of different career paths to explain on a resume and in a cover letter. Rather than looking like a job-hopping flake who can't make up your mind, it's up to you to figure out how to tell your career story in a way that makes sense to a future employer.
In this episode, I chat with Life and Career Coach, Carolyn Birsky who found herself in the same position early on in her career. After finally finding her calling in coaching, Carolyn now helps other women navigate their 20s and make that important decade feel less confusing.
Carolyn Birsky is a Certified Life & Career Coach and the Owner of Compass Maven LLC, a company that helps 20-something women gain the clarity and confidence they need to get unstuck and turn the lives and careers of their dreams into reality through 1-on-1 coaching, workshops, and content.
Upon graduating college, Carolyn spent the first 6 years of her career working in corporate sales. While she had a very successful career on paper, Carolyn wasn’t excited to go to work each morning, and Sunday nights were filled with dread. When she ultimately found her calling in coaching, Carolyn knew she was meant to help other women navigate their 20s and make this important decade feel less confusing. And thus, Compass Maven was born.
Carolyn holds a BA in Psychology from Middlebury College and a CPC from iPEC (the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching). A born connector, Carolyn also loves finding opportunities to introduce amazing women to one another and watching the incredible things that arise from these relationships. When she’s not coaching or working on her business, you can find Carolyn traveling, discovering new coffee shops and restaurants, and making the most of her time with friends and family.
