A Lack of Clarity Can Stunt Your Career Growth and Advancement

Why is clarity so important to your career?

In this video, I’m sharing about clarity and also giving you a few questions you can ask to help you find clarity if you need it.

Resources to help you gain clarity in your career

The Reach Personal Branding Survey is also a great resource for helping you figure out exactly what others see as your strengths and brand.

Here’s an article I wrote at the beginning of the year that include 12 resume writing tips. Several are focused on gaining clarity, direction and vision for your career and your resume.

This article from The Muse will help inspire you if you’re feeling STUCK in your career.
