About This Event

Embarking on a career change journey can feel daunting, but you don't have to go through it alone. Building a supportive network can make all the difference between a smooth transition and feeling lost in the process.


Join us as we discuss the importance of building a robust support system for your career change. Learn how to identify key allies, cultivate the backing you need to navigate challenges, stay motivated, and achieve success in your professional transformation.


  • Why a support team is one of the most powerful (and underestimated) elements of a successful shift
  • The key mistake most career changers make in trying to get help with their shift
  • The 6 types of people who are most effective to support you in your search for more fulfilling work

How to find – and ask – people to be on your support team (without feeling awkward)
