Top Career Coach: Susan Schultz, Shares 3-Steps to Finding the “Right Career for You”

Susan Schultz is a seasoned executive coach and the founder of Inspired Integration, an integrated career coaching agency

Susan’s professional background and career achievements have made her a nationally recognized career development coach. She’s guided clients through the world of Talent Management for over 30 years; from placing cold calls for various recruiting firms to running her own recruiting business, Susan understands what it takes “to find your dream job and live your best life.” After leaving the corporate world, she turned her passion into a business and worked with others to find a career they love and success and happiness in their work.

Three Steps To Finding a Career You Love

#1 Know Your Skill

According to Susan, “We all have different skills. Now, I’m not talking about hard skills, like knowing how to code or any other teachable ability. I’m talking about the soft skills that you carry with you. For example, are you a people person or do you work better alone? Are you better at creative tasks or technical tasks? Do you work better with structure, or do you work better with more freedom in your day? 

To make a career change that works, one must remember those soft skills that they’ve successfully utilized in the past. List them out so they can visually see all the things they’re great at. “What if you don’t have the skills you want? It’s always possible to build new skills! Now is the time to start thinking about your passion.” 

#2 Find Your Passion

“Finding work that you’re passionate about isn’t always easy! Think about those soft skills that you listed out. If there is a clear pattern, you can use those skills to search for a career that you’re passionate about. If your current skills don’t contribute to your career passion, that’s okay! You can always build new skills based on what you’re passionate about,” She said. 

Susan added, “You probably spend your free time feeding your passion in some way or another. Do you enjoy being outside or inside? Do you like using your hands to build things or using your mind to read books? So think about it – what are you excited to do this weekend?! Keep the following questions in mind:

  • Where are you spending your money?
  • What did you love to do as a child?
  • What can you talk about for hours and makes you light up?
  • If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do with your time?    

When you do something you love, they say that you’ll never have to work a day in your life. That’s why thinking about your passion is so important! So take your passions and search for ways to implement them into your career. And if you struggle, know that you don’t have to go at it alone.” 

#3 Use a Mentor

Changing careers can be challenging! It helps when people have someone in their corner. They are there to cheer them on, give them advice, and help them avoid the mistakes that many make when starting a new career alone. 

Some of the most successful people utilized a mentor at some point in their career. “You can find someone who’s already doing what you want to do. Or, you can find someone who is trained to help you succeed no matter what career you choose.” 

Susan’s gold standard coaching includes the Integrated Life Academy and one-to-one career coaching. She built her career on helping people to: understand who they are at their core and what they value most. She is on a mission to help women and young individuals achieve greater success in finding a career they love so they become more aligned with their inner-authenticity and passion. 

Changing careers all comes down to energy and support. They’ve got to know what they’re good at, love their new path, and see that they can’t do it alone!
