Carey from Flint, Michigan asks:
I recently changed careers. I felt that my first position was a perfect fit, but did not work out. I was told that this was not because of my skills, but because I wasn’t “engaged” with the team. I wasn’t sure what this meant, and couldn’t get a clear answer from them. I have since changed employers, and enjoy what I do. Is this another growth experience for me, or a fulfilling, long lasting career?
First, regarding the statement that your past employer made that you were not “engaged” with the team – I’ve been there and done that in my life, also! Have you ever felt just not “in sync” with another person? It doesn’t make any difference how much you tried – you just weren’t on the same “wavelength.” I believe that this is what your past employer felt, and didn’t know how to explain. In other words, you were a square peg in a round hole – not your fault, although it is a very painful situation to be in.
Of course, all situations are sometimes (painful) growth situations. But to answer your question, I do feel that you will be successful in your career. Enjoy yourself!
