Episode Description

Are you lacking confidence in your job search or career? You are not alone! With all the uncertainty, layoffs, and career changes going on, many career coaches are hearing clients share that they just don’t feel as confident right now. In fact, a study by My Confidence Matters and the University of Glasgow revealed that 79% of women and 62% of men experience a lack of confidence in the workplace. How does lack of confidence impact one's career and what can be done to boost it? In this episode of The Career Confidante, host Marie Zimenoff welcomes personal branding expert Kate Pozeznik. Together, Kate and Marie discuss what impacts confidence and what can trigger a lack of confidence or feeling like a fraud (often called imposter syndrome). Then they share practical actions anyone can take to boost confidence long-term and in specific situations.
