So, we all know how the career change process works, right?

Here’s a simplified version:

  • You feel stuck in your job
  • You start to identify what you want
  • You try to work things out with your company
  • You do some networking
  • You land a job interview
  • You get a job offer
  • You accept the job offer
  • You life happily ever after

The problem is that it doesn’t always work this way.

In fact, our guest today worked hard to find a great role within her organization. After networking internally, she was finally got the job offer - but then she turned it down.

What?

It might not make sense now, but turning down that offer was one of the best things she did to advance her career.

P.S. Our guest today was also on episode 278, where we shared a live coaching session she had with Scott!
