    S3 E3: Rebooting Your Career (& September Promotion!)

    S3 E3: Rebooting Your Career (& September Promotion!)

    Quick, what does the word "Career" mean to you?  

    You're probably thinking of the "big stuff" (job change, promotion, etc).  But we've found that Career is also a lot of the little stuff too (dealing with a crappy manager, lots of org changes, working with difficult co-workers, etc).  The equation isn't simply Career = Change.  Rather, it's Career = Change + Everyday Experiences.

    And this is where a lot of tech organizations and tech managers fall short.  They aren't prepared to help tech professionals through these (everyday) experiences, which all contribute (greatly!!) to Career.

    That's where Engaged Pursuit comes in...

    Founder Tom Perry has created a new framework to help tech professionals maximize both the big Career stuff as well as work through the smaller Career stuff that happens everyday.  It's a new spin on the 30-60-90 day plan that many of you are familiar with if you've started a new job.

    Tom's developed a 30-60-90 HOUR framework to help tech professionals build a plan to tackle both the big and small Career events.  And, for the month of September, he's offering a special promotion to get you ready for the return to work after summer break - a "BOGO" workshop!  Schedule a couple hours of time with Tom to work through your Career issue (using the 30-60-90 hour guide) and you'll only be billed for one hour.  How's that for a deal!?!?!

    Interested in learning more?  Listen to this latest podcast and contact Tom either via email (tom@engagedpursuit.com) or text (206.369.3124).

    Special Edition: 3-Minute Market Update - July '22 Numbers + Tech Impact

    Special Edition: 3-Minute Market Update - July '22 Numbers + Tech Impact

    The July 2022 unemployment numbers were released this morning, and the numbers blew away all expectations.  Analysts were predicting just 25,000 additional jobs created during the month.  The reality? Over 525,000+ jobs were added to payroll in July.  I'd call that a big win!

    Now how these numbers affect the biggest economic question right now ("Are we or are we not in a recession??") is yet to be seen.  But this is a great sign that one important ingredient (unemployment) is moving in the right direction (and at 50 year lows!).

    What's the impact on the tech market specifically?  Founder Tom Perry highlights the impact that these numbers are having on the tech sector, from hiring "vibe(s)" to hot segments within the tech industry.  Check out the "3-Minute Market Update" to get the latest/greatest!

    S3 E2: More Fun = Better Balance! 6 (Easy!) Ways to Improve Work-Life-Balance

    "I need more balance in my life!"  

    It's something we hear from our tech clients all the time.  Especially over the past 2+ years, professionals are constantly looking for ways to feel more in-control of their experience.  The issue?  Most folks go BIG when creating strategies to create more WLB.  Stuff like "exercising more" or "no phone after 7pm" or "Email doesn't exist on the weekend!"  And, with most things, it's good for a couple weeks and then ... well, let's just say our behavior mirrors New Years Resolutions...

    But what if there was a better, easier way to tackle this balance issue?

    Engaged Pursuit founder Tom Perry has found one (easy) way to try to improve balance - and that's to incorporate a little more fun into his daily experience.  In this latest episode, Tom talks about the 6 things that he does throughout his (typical) day to bring a little more pep-in-his-step and also feel a better sense of balance (control!!) in his professional (and personal) life.

    Have additional ways that you are incorporating more fun in your life?  Let Tom know - tom@engagedpursuit.com
