At first glance, the phrase “crash your career” may seem like a bad idea. But it’s actually a good thing, more like a career “crash course,” as Isaac Morehouse explains.
Morehouse is the founder of Praxis, a startup apprenticeship program, and he is the CEO of Crash.co, a new career launch platform. He also authored a book, Crash your Career. Morehouse is very passionate about helping young people so they don’t get left behind. He says there’s a lot of bad information out there about careers.
For example, a lot of people will tell you to just focus on getting the best education and grades you can, slap that degree on a nicely formatted resume, and start applying to jobs. But Morehouse tells us that doesn’t work. In fact, it has less than a 2% hit rate.
Here, Morehouse writes about the most important thing you can do to crash your career.
Discover and do what makes you come alive.
That’s the heart and soul of the mission at Crash.co. After all, if you’re not fully alive, what’s the point?!
But how to discover it? It’s a bit too stressful, I think, to try to “find your passion.” Instead, I like to approach it from the opposite direction. Don’t do stuff you hate. Don’t do stuff you’re terrible at or no one will pay you for. The rest is fair game! Go out and try it!
So how can you figure out what you won’t hate or suck at? For starters, you can try this unique career discovery tool. We spent months researching, testing, and building this thing to help people narrow down on a few career types that might be a great place to start. We built 20 unique personality archetypes, based on several trait pairings, that map onto roles.
Just having a few roles to focus on helps in your career launch. Especially when it comes to creating a cool profile and showing your skills to companies.
Begin your journey of discovery so you can do what makes you come alive.
Let me know how it goes!
