There’s this funny phenomenon that happens when people are looking for intentional work. They get to a point where they’ve been working on their career change for a while — they’ve identified what will make work meaningful for them and what they are looking for in an organization — but then the search for their ideal role starts taking longer than expected, and the doubts start creeping in.

Staying true to yourself when you begin to have doubts is possibly the hardest part of the entire career change process. After a third job change left Eric as burned out as the one before, Eric decided his next career change would be much more intentional...but when his job search started approaching the yearlong mark, he began having doubts. 

Hear how Eric maintained focus by seeking support and ultimately refusing to settle for anything less than meaningful work.
