DO YOU LOVE YOUR CAREER? I MEAN… DO YOU REALLY LOVE IT? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT YOUR MISSION AND DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO GOING TO WORK EVERY DAY?
If your answer is yes – congratulations! Finding and securing your dream role is a wonderful feeling that is coveted by many. When you have achieved your career nirvana it can be so tempting to sit back and calm the driving force that got you to where you are today. You know what though? There is always room to grow, develop and improve. Let me show you the way to loving your career even more than you do today.
If your answer is no – don’t despair! It doesn’t have to be this way. Let’s work together to understand what your dream career looks like and then develop a master plan to get there. I can help you to realise your strengths and development areas and teach you the best ways to communicate them. I can help you find happiness in your career.
My name is Rebecca McFarland and I have been working in the human resources industry for over ten years. I have qualifications in human resources, business, management and adult education, and achieved my DISC Advanced Consultant and Facilitator Accreditation in 2013. In addition to the roles I have held in the corporate world, I am also an experienced Career Coach and have worked with over 100 clients in a vast range of industries and although I have loved the work, I have always wanted to do more.
That’s why I created Pop Your Career.
When I started Pop Your Career, I was disappointed with the quality of career advice in the market. It all seemed so drab, boring and sterile. Aside from the advice being totally un-entertaining, I also noticed that nobody seemed to be giving away the sneaky secrets. The practical steps to getting something done and the truth about what really goes through a hiring manager’s mind when they are reading your application.
I was determined (and continue to be to this day!) to shake things up, tell the truth without sugar-coating it, provide step-by-step advice that is actually useful, and to make you laugh out loud (or at least crack a smile…) while I do it. Doing this work lights me up like a Christmas tree and makes me feel completely fulfilled when it comes to my own career.
But something was still off-kilter…
Once I launched my coaching services at Pop Your Career, I kept jigging them and re-jigging them. But no matter what I did, it didn’t feel right. My offerings didn’t sit well with me and I wasn’t excited about the clients I was attracting. It dawned on me that they all had something in common. They were all looking for jobs. And money.
Now, don’t get me wrong, jobs are fun and money is a necessity, but helping people find a job, any job or negotiate a bigger pay cheque just isn’t for me. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’re in the wrong place, love. You see, I have found career fulfilment, I believe in career fulfilment and I feel genuinely called to helping people who share that dream!
The Career Fulfilment Framework was born.
I procrastinated for about three months on re-re-relaunching my coaching packages, and had an extremely convoluted list of services that I mapped out and then changed and mapped out and changed… over and over again until I was almost ready to throw in the towel. If I couldn’t understand my own offerings, how could I ever expect you to?!
Then one bright Thursday morning, I woke up with an idea. An idea that would save my business (and my sanity!), as I became clear about how I could help my clients achieve their career vision. That idea was the Career Fulfilment Framework – for more information about the framework, click here!
A little about me.
So, who is the chick behind Pop Your Career and the Career Fulfilment Framework? Well, I have told you a little about me professionally, but if you are thinking about partnering up with me, you should probably know that I am full of contradictions! Here are a few examples:
· I am a hard-core introvert, but I love people and thrive on connection.
· I have a wicked sense of humour, but I don’t know any jokes.
· I got married to the love of my life in 2015. Our wedding was magical and I wish we could do it again!
· I love Mexican food and anything sweet, but I am lactose intolerant and onions make me so sick.
· I enjoy laughing out loud, but most of the time I am quiet, observing what is happening around me.
· I am incredibly loyal, but if someone crosses me, I don’t stick around to let them explain.
· I am super family oriented, but my husband and I don’t want children (aside from our fur-babies!)
· I am practical and value actionable steps, but I also adore my essential oils, tarot cards and crystals.
I also swear a lot (only behind the scenes!), hate washing dishes, think afternoon naps are magical and really know my stuff when it comes to careers.
