Does this sound like you? Living with chronic illness and thinking about changing your career. But haven’t a clue how or where to start.
Then my article, “Career planning when you live with chronic illness”, is what you need to get started. ( No surprise here – I outline a strategic approach.) It’s published in this week’s Job-hunt.org, ‘the web’s best job resource’ where I’m delighted to be a monthly columnist.
But maybe you’re in a different spot. Maybe you’re currently employed but wondering if this is the time to bail out of the workforce. Are you managing people, reading about Steve Jobs and thinking, “Hey, why can’t I cut back the way he can?” Vickie Elmer, columnist at glassdoor.com and The Washington Post, asked me my thoughts, How to Know When Time Off Is a Good Thing”. As usual, I had a lot to say.
I wrote more on this subject in my own post, Keep Filling the Bank. You don’t have to be a world class conductor to get the support you need but it helps to be liked and to add value!
All of this – – career strategy, when and how to talk about illness – – and more in my career guidebook series, Career Thrive When You Live With Chronic Illness and my workbook, Keep Working With Chronic illness . Check out these resources as well before you make any big moves.
