    Teachers in Transition - Episode 146 - Interview with Brittany Rotskoff

    Teachers in Transition - Episode 146 - Interview with Brittany Rotskoff

    When I have a client who has been successful, I like to share that success. So, today I am excited to share the success of Brittany Rotskoff.

    When I first met Brittany during the summer of 2021, she was a young stay-at-home mom who had quit her teaching job because of COVID. She was worried about going back to in-person instruction because she had a baby at home, and she did not want to risk her health or the health of her child.

    A National Board Certified Teacher, Brittany was always clear that her career change should be part-time to start because she didn't want to leave her baby too much of the time. She was also very clear that she wanted to work in a museum or library. But she wasn't sure how to make that happen.

    She took the Jumpstart Your Job Search Course that I offer, and with the help she gained from that program on how to best position herself for a new job search, and with the help of her sister who helped her with introductions, she has landed a new job as a Part-Time Visitor Experience Associate at the Kemper Art Museum which is associated with Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

    The job is exactly what she was looking for. You can hear her talk about it and her job hunting experience in this episode of Teachers in Transition.

    Teachers in Transition - Episode 143 - How to De-stress During the Holidays

    Teachers in Transition - Episode 143 - How to De-stress During the Holidays

    The holidays are a "happy" time of year, but they can also be stressful. Many people are missing loved ones who have passed away, and while it is always bittersweet, those "firsts" can be especially hard, especially the first Christmas. I know because I lost my brother this year, and this will be the first Christmas without him.

    Thankfully, there are things you can do for yourself to help you de-stress and manage your stress more proactively and effectively--not just during the holidays but throughout the year. For a cheat sheet on how to de-stress during the holidays, click here:  https://kittyboitnott.lpages.co/cheat-sheet-on-how-to-de-stress-during-the-holidays/

    And if one of the ways you are thinking that you might de-stress during the holidays includes changing jobs in 2022, let's talk. Set up a complimentary Discovery Session at https://teachersintransition.com.

    Teachers in Transition - Episode 142- Why You Should be Job Hunting During the Holidays

    Teachers in Transition - Episode 142- Why You Should be Job Hunting During the Holidays

    It may sound counter-intuitive, but if you are job hunting, you should keep it up during the holidays rather than taking a break during these weeks leading up to Christmas and the New Year. I offered advice about that in Episode 39 of "Teacher in Transition" and I have written about it including an article in Forbes  entitled  "Job Hunting During The Holidays: Should You Wait Until The New Year?"

    If you want 2022 to be the year of a new job or a career change for yourself, you need to start preparing for it now. Kitty just shared that she saw that it is taking 29 weeks to make a career change these days which is a little over 7 months. You can't afford to waste any time.

    Kitty is offering a free webinar masterclass on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at 7:00 PM EST and again on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 3:00 PM EST. To register for FREE, click here:  https://event.webinarjam.com/register/45/nk4ozb7q.

Genuinely helpful teacher/career podcast

I have gotten a number of really smart tips about my job search from these episodes. The advice has helped me really think through how to plan my next steps, what I really want for myself next, and then how to approach the job hunt to get that position. Thank you!!!
