My guest this week, Julia Howard, has an amazing story to share about how she found her premium role. She went from sending out 250 applications and receiving zero responses, to getting two offers directly on LinkedIn. She’s breaking down exactly how she did it, her process, what it takes, the ups and downs, the internal work, and crucially, how you can do the same!
Julia was a VP of a large company, but she decided she didn’t want to be a leader anymore. She decided she wanted to spend more time with her family without saying goodbye to her career entirely, and how she did it is an amazing example of what’s possible, and she’s here to share it all.
Tune in this week to discover how Julia went from sending out 250 applications with no responses, to landing two premium offers directly through LinkedIn. We’re discussing the pressure people experience around landing an offer instantly, where people go wrong using LinkedIn, and how to use LinkedIn to learn and land new opportunities.
