Claire's Career Change Claire worked her way up over 8 years at an education startup to a senior leadership role in New York. Claire got the privilege of working at senior roles and got to try out remote work before it was common as today, but surprisingly, she was still unhappy. After taking a year to travel and work on her mindset, she realized "It's less about fixing issues but more about shifting as a person”. In the midst of getting offers to work as COOs, she realized that her true passion is to help other women reconnect with themselves and transform. Some simple steps from Claire if you're feeling like you have blinders on and can't seem to find enjoyment in your work, start by writing down what makes you feel joy, proud, and grateful every day!

She had spent the better part of her professional career working long hours, climbing a corporate ladder, chasing titles and salary increases. Through a year-long journey around the world, she transformed her mindset and redesigned her life on her terms.

In 2015, she left clinical therapy and she talked to us about what she learned along the way. As a recruiter, she cannot stress enough the importance of networking "when you don't have to". In graduate school she took a two-week internship at a real estate developer company and when she met the President of Sales while getting coffee in the kitchen, she debated whether she should introduce herself and make a connection. Most people in the same situation would have passed on the opportunity because this was such a short internship in an unrelated field, but she thought, "I have nothing to lose from this. I'm going to talk to him!" Brittany introduced herself and turned in her resume even though she wasn't expecting to hear back. Years later, while working as a clinical therapist, she got a call and was offered an unexpected role that she had no prior experience in. This is how Brittany got her foot in the door in recruiting. Today, she is a Talent Acquisition Manager at L'Oreal and an entrepreneur. ✍︎✍︎✍︎We have more interviews on our podcast!
