I had the opportunity to participate in a great webinar by Ilona on Renaissance Personalities, how their work styles and patterns differ from a typical worker, and how to capitalize on those differences. Please check out @careerbranches for more information!
Yes, I do consider myself a renaissance woman. My experience is varied and does not have a single focus. I’ve always enjoyed different responsibilities at work. I’ve worked in 2 industries that are “related,” advertising and marketing, but not the same. I started out as a writer and 20 years later I am working to get back into that field.
I am also exploring a creative outlet/hobby that could be a new career and starting a business plan based on it.
It is a difficult and conflicting time because I am unemployed. Job hunting should be my only focus but I need a creative outlet too.
Thanks Heidi – glad you liked it! For those of you who missed it last time: I’ll be presenting the same webinar on Thursday, May 27 at 8:00pm EST. (www.careerbranches.com/renaissance_webinar)

Monica, good luck with your efforts!
What do you find the most difficult about your current transition?

I do work part time in chemistry doing business/applications development, and part time doing art. In both areas I have master level education and I tell my customers about it.
What really moves my life is solving problems either on a process, an opportunity, on a painting or other art form.
