Large changes after a divorce are expected regardless of how long you were married to your ex. You might want to take a completely different path in terms of your career. Your ex might have had to stay in a specific city for a job while you work remotely. Moving to another state or even country can be options you have never explored. The fact that relocation can help you climb the corporate ladder more rapidly is another way to thrive after a divorce. You want to base your professional brand on quality hard work and producing desired results regardless of your job role. Below are tips to help you build your personal brand for professional reasons after a divorce.
Being Available For Relocation
A company that is expanding truly values employees willing to relocate. Putting in for a transfer can be something that leads to a promotion if the location you are transferring to has an opening. Leaving a city after a divorce might be an easy decision if your ex was the only reason you were living there in the first place. Remote work being available can allow you to move nearly anywhere in the world. Most remote roles just require certain hours to be worked but might be flexible. High producers are usually given far more leeway as production is the ultimate goal of a business.
Working Hours That Were Once Impossible
You can take shifts on or go on a variety of business trips that you were not willing to before. Diving into your career after a divorce can act as a healthy distraction that can be financially beneficial. You are going to need something to fill your time so split this between advancing your career and self-improvement. The alienation of affection can make it difficult to focus on your career with a crumbling marriage. A divorce can be an event that allows you to truly put a priority on your career for the first time in years.
Use Extra Time To Learn New Skills
Learning new skills can be so important after a divorce. You might want to completely change your industry but stay in a similar role. Learning new tech tools along with skills that are applicable to your career can be important. Even certifications for things like Google AdWords for a digital marketing professional can make them more versatile. You want to learn skills that make it easier for your role to be done more efficiently or even remotely.
Learning a new language can be something that truly advances your career to the next level. A person that is bilingual and learned the language late in life shows a dedication. Speaking in the native tongue in certain business settings can be so important. You do not want anything lost in translation and most native speakers appreciate a person that is proficient in their language.
Thriving after a divorce is possible from a professional perspective as you can revamp your personal brand. You’d be surprised as to how spending a few hours daily on your personal brand can develop it rapidly.
