  • 6. CareerLeader
    • Core philosophy
      • “ We strongly believe that interests , not skills, should be the foundation of people’s careers. People make poor career choices for lots of reasons, but one of the most common is making a career choice (solely) because you’re good at something, regardless of how interested you are in the work. Of course your skill level has to exceed some minimum level to be competent at anything, but we believe that the combination of your interests, work reward values and your abilities are the ‘hidden nugget’ that is often overlooked in setting your career course”
  • 7. CareerLeader
    • Three parts:
      • Part 1 – Your Interests
      • Part 2 – Combining your Work Reward Values and Abilities with your Interests
      • Part 3 – Navigating corporate culture and avoiding career breakdowns
  • 8. CareerLeader
    • 3 most common recruiting errors
      • Recruiters focus on abilities
      • Students focus on rewards
      • Neither focuses on interests
    • Why is this important when starting your MBA:
      • If you’re making a career switch, and don’t like what it is you plan to do, your chances of making it are slim, and even if you do …
