Stacey Talks Career Change with Samuel Adeyinka

Evolve Your Success founder Samuel Adeyinka sat down with me this week to talk about the dynamics of making a career change. Although Evolve Your Success focuses on connecting people with careers in the medical sales field, Samuel shares the top three things that candidates need to focus on across the board when looking to alter their career path.

We also discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has forced more people to rely on social media, providing a golden opportunity for both candidates and recruiters to give themselves a real presence and expand their network. Samuel and I offer up tips and effective strategies for how to prepare for interviews and the importance of networking the right way.

Stacey A. Gordon Talks Diversity, Inclusion and Careers With Creighton Taylor

This week I was joined by Creighton Taylor, founder and CEO of Guided Compass, a technology platform that he fondly refers to as “eHarmony for students and employers.”

Creighton and the Guided Compass team have developed a systematic approach that matches students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds with resources, tools, and opportunities in a vast array of industries. 

Never before has there been a better time for people to make their own path. Unfortunately, issues of access still create a chasm between individuals and the means to do just that. In this interview, Creighton and I discuss how Guided Compass and other organizations are working to bridge that gap by providing tools and resources (often free or low-cost) to help people upskill and enter the career path of their choosing. 

Creighton also shares a practical experiment that he believes will not only help companies understand the foundational benefits of a diverse workforce, but will also provide valuable data that helps other businesses and industries move forward in developing a culture of trust and inclusion in their own workplaces.
