I visited my neighbors’ house, and their 7-year-old asked me about my work.
“What do you do?” she asked.
“I work with people to help them discover their work and find jobs,” I said, feeling smug that I could encapsulate it that easily for a first grader to recognize its value.
“Oh…” Pause. “Is that it?”
Reality descended as I recognized I didn’t perform at the level I’d hoped. My face fell.
“Well,” I said lamely, “I also write.”
“Hmmm…,” she said as she wandered off.
So, maybe I couldn’t impress a first grader, but hopefully, my latest articles on Careerealism might hold your attention for a bit longer:
