SEEK your Mind Ep 5: Move to the beat of your own drum

FacebookTwitterLinkedinPrintEmail

Aiden’s story is the story of a happy job hunter but it took a chat with host Sabina Read for him to realise it. If you’d asked him in January about his career and job prospects you would have heard a very different perspective. Anxiously watching his beloved music industry shut down, he was rapidly burning through his savings and he knew he wanted to keep using his skills but wasn’t sure how. This episode is for anyone struggling with how to find meaning in what they do and tackling the question of earning an income while staying true to what you value. They’re not always easy choices, but expert career coach Naishadh Gadani provides a framework to think about your skills and networks, and ideas for packaging your offering to find work that enables you to feel fulfilled.

Aiden’s letter to SEEK

Dear Seek,
I've worked in the music industry for a decade and spent almost all of last year on a world tour with a band that covered put a stop to all that. I'm trying to say this time is a chance to reinvent my career and have been thinking a lot about mental health, mine and others. So it's a passion project. I launched a podcast on mental health in the creative industries and quickly realised I'd like to try and monetise it. I'm under no illusions that I'll still need a job and I've picked up a bit of casual work teaching, but I'm rapidly running out of savings. I want to be home more and start a family rather than travel the world. But I don't want to step away from an industry or put so much time into.

Yours, Trying to transpose
