What’s the best way to determine if a different role or industry is right for you? Many people believe you must take huge risks to figure this out, but that’s not the case. Career experiments are the answer! These are the opposite of the tactical career change approaches you often hear about, yet far more effective. We are going to cover one of the most highly effective types of career experiments today: test driving conversations. This experiment will allow you to meet new people, quickly test new careers, and pave the way for creating your very own role custom-fit to you.

To demonstrate how this experiment works firsthand, Scott walks through Laura Morrison’s career change (episode 213), and explains step-by-step how she test drove conversations that led to finding a role that was perfect for her.

Laura’s Career Change Episodes:

Part 1 - Switching Industries Without Compromising Your Career’s Trajectory
