When you take the leap into the "real world," you'll realize that your academic accomplishments will only propel you so far. There's a certain skill set you need to be able to handle a job, build relationships, cultivate a personal reputation (brand) and all of the unspoken elements that make up professional life.
And, there's a certain skill set to accomplish this in alignment and awareness (conscious).
This art includes the "soft skills" that help you navigate human relationships, and "mind skills" that help you evolve as a human being.
Conscious Career Development requires that you see your experience, skills and goals as a strategist would view a chess board, putting the right pieces together for a powerful move. That powerful move leads you to greater self-knowledge. The principles of metaphysics, the ebb and flow of energy and manifestation, transform your professional life into a vocation that brings you success without distress.
For example, managers can receive 200 or more resumes by E-mail for job opportunities per day. Often they are full of grammatical errors, misspelling and poor literary comprehension. With this kind of document speaking for you, do you think you'll be called back?
What if you learned how to craft your resume like you would your self-image so you project confidence and competence, qualities of the solar plexus chakra?
Another example: Did you know companies tend to have Applicant Tracking Systems? These software filter out resumes that are weak in job description keywords. To tailor it to the job, you have to understand the job description and match what you have to offer with what they're looking for. If you can't write a resume tailored to the job, your resume will likely never reach HR's desk.
And another example: Two of the most challenging requests for young professionals to answer on an interview and in general are:
1. Tell me about yourself.
2. What are your strengths?
Can you answer these clearly, with confidence and immediately?
They say the devil is in the details but so is admiration. When you give attention to these subtle skills your professional aura is amplified. Whether you're just starting out or experienced but feel rusty, becoming an extraordinary professional can open doors, make you more magnetic and memorable. Your peers, leadership and employees will be compelled to take you seriously. You will command respect by your bearing. By applying metaphysical principles, you learn how to navigate your environments by working with your own energy systems and thoughts as things.
