Charting a Course to your Dream Job – Cassandra Faris
Cassandra Faris is passionate about the human side of technology. She is the Innovation and Product Evangelist at AWH, a consulting company that creates hardware and software products to improve people’s lives. Her professional background includes recruiting, community outreach, employee engagement, and product ownership. Cassandra is an international speaker who specializes in teaching professional skills to technical audiences. She is President Emeritus of the DogFoodCon tech conference and a Per Scholas Advisory Board member. She has an MBA in Organizational Leadership. When she’s not busy with the community, she is an avid tabletop gamer, runner, and soccer fan who travels as much as possible.
Cassandra runs me through an abbreviated version of a workshop she runs to help people find out what interests so they can improve their careers by doing more of what they love and less of what they don’t love.
You can take this exercise and apply it to yourself or find Cassandra at one of the conferences she will be speaking at.
Either way, this conversation is super helpful especially the secrets inside a recruiters mind we get into toward the end. You don’t want to miss it.
If you liked this conversation you should hear my conversation with Laura Coffee another career coach that can help you find your dream job.
