5/27 Live Chat: "She Took A Year-And-A-Half Off, Now She's the Senior Manager of Revenue Empowerment at Guru"
On Wednesday May 27th, join us for a live chat with a member of the Guru team! We are excited to hear from Julia Soffa, Senior Manager of Revenue Empowerment, at Guru, during the chat entitled, "She Took A Year-And-A-Half Off, Now She's the Senior Manager of Revenue Empowerment at Guru". Click here to register and also to hear the post-event recording, and we hope to see you there virtually!
Here is more information about this live chat with Julia:
When I made the decision to leave a "good job" and take an indefinite amount of time off, I felt uncertain and received a lot of questions. Until I took the leap, I hadn't known how much I had needed the break and the time to reassess my priorities. When the time was right to explore employment, my intention was to answer essential questions that mattered to me instead of going on the "job hunt" in a traditional sense. Join me for this live Q&A and ask me anything about how I ultimately made my decision and what lead to my decision to take this role at Guru!
In this chat I want you to walk away with...
- Strategies for assessing your priorities
- Questions to ask yourself before taking your next role
- Confidence building strategies for when you need a little lift at work
