That was the mindset (aka the jobseeker mindset) of my client and exactly what my client said since she was literally hearing crickets when submitting her resume for new career opportunities.
Of course I LOL’d , agreed with her and proceeded to strategically offer her resume suggestions and customized edits during her “Resume Audit Session”.
After our session, she immediately updated her resume using the techniques recommended.
Then…I kid you not…literally a week later she emailed me saying “Just wanted to give you an update. I have 3 interviews scheduled for positions with the new resume that I updated and used your techniques.”
Of course I did a quick shout and screamed with excitement for her…. Mission accomplished!!!
My client literally went from no interviews to 3 interviews in just 1 week!!!
I absolutely LOVE seeing my clients win and get closer to reaching their career goals!
My question to you is ‘will you be the next person I assist in reaching their career goals???
Did you tune in to the latest episode of my podcast, Peculiar Career Chit Chat? Well if you haven’t yet, it’s a must HEAR!! It’ll lift your spirits and get you motivated to truly go after your career goals!
Year 2 is that you??? Happy Leap of Faith Anniversary to me…I’m a witness to how God truly honors your obedience..
So as I celebrate year 2 of fully transitioning into a different career field that truly ignites my soul, I encourage you to go after what your heart desires. No, it won’t be easy but it’ll be worth it!
My book, Soul Ignition, was birth from my career transition period so here’s a few words of encouragement to ignite your soul to move to your next level in life:
“GIVE NOTICE” to yourself that you deserve the best and nothing less
”TRUST THE PROCESS” God is taking you through that will mold you into who He has called you to be.
The “EVICTION OF FEAR” is essential for your elevation to a place or venture God has prepared for you
Believe “RESILIENCE” is a part of your DNA (trust me you will need that ingredient of yourself during life’s journey)
Remember “THE COST OF AN IDLE MIND” is too expensive especially if it leaves you with regrets…(p.s. just do it sis or bruh)
Embrace the “TEARS AND CHEERS” throughout the shifts of life but just know the cheers will be louder than your tears
Last but not least “LAUGH IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY” as you reach new heights in your career, business, and life in general.
……..Now go forth and become the best version of you…I believe in you -Crystal

Have you said these phrases recently when it come’s to your career journey?
-I’m sooooo over this!… -What now?… -Can I do that?… -I’ll do it next year… -It’ll fix Itself… etc..
Be honest…I have said this once before in my career journey too; however, when I began to change my perspective and rewire my mind on how I view my career (especially when I was in my 9 to 5 career journey) my days were so much better. Most of all what helped me rewire my mind was:
-I changed how I spoke about the career circumstances I faced, -Took steps towards my career goal and moved past the doubts/fears of failure, -Leaned on the true source, who is God, to fix my career circumstances

This week I celebrated my 1st full year of operating as a full-time entrepreneur in an industry that aligns with my divine purpose!
[Backstory] Approximately, 1 year ago I voluntarily left my 6-figure career as an IT Auditor/Consultant at a major organization! I’m still shocked that I did that.
Never in a million years did I think could do it!
But the fact of the matter is that I did do it! I didn’t voluntarily leave because I was miserable at my 9 to 5 or didn’t like what I was doing. I left because I knew I was being called to work full-time in another industry which is the Career/Professional Development industry.
I thank God for giving me the courage and strength to transition into another industry within my career. Owning my own business and working in this industry literally ignites my soul because I love to serve people by helping them meet their career goals and see people happy with what they do within their careers. It’s a very rewarding experience.
If I can do it you can certainly do it too! Especially, if you know you’re being called to do it. I always say if you’re called to it you have no choice but to do it, it’s your responsibility (John 15:16).
If you are being called to a different industry and not sure how to go about making the transition let’s chat! Simply email me at email@example.com so we can schedule a time to chat! P.S. ‘This Girl Can’ is what I tell myself daily to speak life to myself in this career transition season because it aligns to one of my anchor scriptures Philippians 4:13…what’s on of your anchor scriptures

A little over a decade ago I graduated from college with my bachelors and what I thought would be the start of a great career ended up being horrible or what I like to call a career tragedy!!! After completing my third consecutive summer internship with a top accounting firm, I ended up not getting the job offer with the company I always dreamed of working for and on top of that I couldn’t get accepted in to any of the graduate schools I applied for without an acceptable test score. .My career plans were shattered and I felt unqualified for everything! I had experienced so much rejection that summer! A no here, a no there, a no everywhere! I told myself that I was not qualified because I faced rejection in my career AND I told myself that I was not qualified when things in my career journey got hard…my heart was completely broken…I kind of spiraled out of control and went into a mini depression state. .
You see I was dwelling on what I thought were failures at the time but it was really God redirecting me to where He wanted me to be in my career journey. After all, I had surrendered my career! As I think back now on what happened I thank God because I can truly say that my career tragedy is my value!!!! I am the solution to individuals that do not feel qualified and empowered to thrive in their career journey! .My clients are attracted to me because I know what its like to hit rock bottom in your career and I can truly empower them to press forward and show them how to clearly execute to get from Point A to Point B throughout their career journey!!!.
I’m currently creating a COURSE that provides individuals the blueprint to authentically excel within their career journey and take full ownership of their career!!!!
