It may sound cliché, but you don’t often see the best things in life coming your way. You know why? Because you’re often too busy looking in at what everyone else has got, so some of the most life-changing experiences for your career simply pass you by, that’s why.
We get it. Being unemployed as a young adult can be incredibly tough, in fact let’s not beat around the bush, it’s ****!! Especially when it seems like everyone in your newsfeed has it “all worked out”.
Why is it so easy for them? How did they land a job so good? You could turn yourself stir crazy trying to come up with the answers. The truth is, thinking in this way achieves nothing more than turning you into a complete career-blocker. Limiting what you FEEL you’d be good at and changing HOW you approach certain career paths.
This is your daily reminder that you don’t need to have IT all worked out. You just need to be willing to give IT a go!

Instead, we spend 100% of our time opening your eyes to the art of the possible. After all, it isn’t about what lane everyone else is in, your career deserves its own path!
