Professional Transitions: Don’t Be Afraid to Make a Change

Victoria used examples from her own life to show her audience at the 2017 WELD Women, Leadership + Innovation Conference on June 7, 2017, why young professionals shouldn’t be afraid to make large changes to their lives or careers. Held at Otterbein University, she also explained how being able to adapt can help you recognize and maximize your strengths and explored the various reasons behind life changes, why change worries us, and the risks, possible impacts and consequences that may result from those changes.

Victoria delved into the process of an aspect of life that is often avoided, from looking for a new career or finding a better market, to adjusting to a new setting and starting from scratch. Discussion topics included networking in a new city and finding a work/life balance while you’re getting reestablished.
