Susan Paulhus-Roper, a highly successful Senior Regional Director for a major shoe chain, was relocated to the East Coast. Upon arrival, and after buying a million dollar house in Jersey, her husband left and she decided she didn’t gel with the company culture. She found herself needing to downsize, collect unemployment and lean into her local parent community.
She networked her butt off, called in strong relationships she had made over the years, printed spreadsheet after spreadsheet and landed as a Regional Manager to 180 Starbucks Licensed Stores. She shares incredible tips about how to look for a new job, and not just any position, but one where you can feel happy. It’s not all about the money, but at the end of the day, who are you helping, where are you growing and who are the people around you.
We can take the power back in our lives even when the best laid plans fall apart and Susan does it with humor and a no bull crap approach.
How do you stay positive looking for a job? What are some of the tools that you used when you were replaced? Drop your feedback in my social, or comments on the episode. Susan admits it is a really lonely time, so find a few people also looking for jobs to flip jobs to you, and you them! Also to be there for you when you get rejected!
