Fortunately, there are many resources and inspiring career adventure stories out there to draw from. Our own Ginny Sorensen is an example of an inspiring story: Ginny used Mac’s List resources and networking tips to find a path forward. She shares how a combination of personal networking, a career coach, and online courses helped her to make a move to a new position in the exciting world of consulting. In a recent blog post for Mac’s List, Ginny shares how she overcame the burn out and tiresome nature of the job-hunting experience and how she used feedback from colleagues about her strengths and talents to determine her next steps.
Ginny Sorensen doesn’t shy away from asking tough questions. She’s found that it opens lines of dialogue and creates space for diverse groups to explore ideas and harness conflicting views for better decision-making. An experienced leader, mentor, and supervisor, she brings people together, and she’s not afraid to do things differently. Her career has been shaped by her ability to understand how all of the pieces of a complex organization come together.
