I'm Chelsea Jay
If you've come this far, I'm guessing we're kindred spirits, right?
During my career, I was the definition of a job hopper...
Until I discovered what my purpose was. Growing
up, I always wanted to be a lawyer, but things didn’t work out that way. I remember sharing that goal
with people close to me and it being shot down (sound familiar?).
In turn, I had to pivot, pivot, & pivot even more. I spent years in school, working full-time, and volunteering all in hopes of finding my "thing".
This led to...
Changing career fields more than 10 times (including Real Estate & Property Management, Banking, Nonprofit Administration, Education)
Climbing the ladder with each move, eventually becoming an Executive Director by age 26
Freelancing as a Recruiter & Hiring Manager
Collecting degrees in Communications, Business, Public Administration & Change Management
Yes, I was busy. It was a lot of movement. Lots of good days and some challenging ones, but I discovered I kept repeating the same patterns.
I was blessed with the opportunity to manage people. I interviewed, recruited, hired & mentored hundreds of employees ranging from entry-level to seasoned workers in each role.
I kept meeting unfulfilled & depressed employees. I naturally took the time to encourage, motivate, & inspire my employees & coworkers to go after the positions that they wanted.
The exiting part is...
It was working & they thank me years later!
Meanwhile, I was also writing resumes & coaching on the side.
Suddenly, it all made sense.
I realized the real reason I wanted to be a lawyer was because I've always been passionate about advocacy. I believe in the importance of advocating for:
The job you want
The company you want to work for
The type of boss you want to work for
How your abilities, experience, & talent can cross over into a new career
That's why I created Seasoned & Growing!
I strongly believe that everyone is "seasoned" in something & always "growing"
So, who am I outside of my business?
A wife to my best friend, a daughter, sister, friend, & fur-mama to our two 100+ pound German Shepherds!
I love traveling! You can often find me in a new city, touring museums, landmarks, wine tours, & of course trying the hottest food joints!
I also enjoy learning new things! I love meaningful mingling at industry events (workshops/conferences), taking courses (online & in person), and dropping into webinars just to stay up-to-date on current career trends!
So, in 500 words, there's your glimpse into who Chelsea Jay is.
