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

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!!!!

Did YOU know you were created for greatness??? I just wanted to stop by to remind you of this very fact because it’s so easy to dwell on the negative facts but not the positive facts of life.
Also, did you know that YOU are the answer to someone’s prayers!!! The gift God has given you is meant to be a resource to help someone in need…to help the corporations/organization seeking your skillset, your work ethic, and your unique personality!
-Display your greatness in your work environment regardless if you’re working from home due to COVID or going in to work on a daily basis! Whether you believe it or not someone prayed for the skillsets and greatness YOU bring to the table! So go do YOU unapologetically in the workplace and let your light shine so bright that others will see it (Matthew 5:16)
Have you ever received a NO throughout your career journey????? I certainly have but trust me it is not the end of the world!
No doesn’t mean never it simply means NEXT OPPORTUNITY…closed doors in your career means God blocked it because He has something better for you elsewhere…something God sized…something much greater than you could even think, dream or imagine. Ephesian 3:20 says it best, ‘Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.’
Trust me I know all too well what a NO sounds like and feels like!!! BUT it was in that season of my life (the career waiting season) I surrendered my career path to God, developed strategies to create a résumé that spoke to my brand, developed strategies to ACE interviews and build an irresistible YOU Brand. I eventually reached my version of career prosperity but I didn’t do it on my own strength, instead I allowed God to direct my path and I asked God to allow me to encounter whoever I needed to in order for me to truly excel to the next level within my career journey. I encourage you to do the same by asking God to direct your path on your career journey. Remember the facts of your career circumstances are never to hard for God to solve so remove the anxious feeling you may have in this season and activate your faith and press on!!!
