Working Conversations Episode 31:
She’s Not Tempted by The Great Resignation
In this episode I continue examining the Great Resignation, this time, by interviewing someone who is not tempted by the Great Resignation. My guest is Julie Westerlund, a water and soil scientist. She shares her career journey and describes how her commitment to her area of expertise is what has driven her decision to stay put during the pandemic. She also acknowledges that some times she is tempted to look for other work, especially when she gets bogged down in the minutia of her role. She walks us through the process she uses for evaluating whether to stay or go. Stick around to the end of the podcast when she offers sage advice about generating passion for the work, even when the work itself isn’t something you’re passionate about.
