Last week, I spoke at the DYPB Conference and bragged to the audience that I could write a book on 50 ways to use index cards to grow your career. And someone said “do it.” Which felt like a fun challenge. I came home and quickly wrote out 33 ways we could use index cards. It didn’t feel fair to launch a series on what I thought people needed to know, so I am leaving 33 spots open to answer your job search and career questions. This means I’ll share 66 different ways you can use index cards to develop your career.

#1 of #66careercards – How to identify what work makes you happy.

One of the first steps in looking for a new job is to know what you are good at. This will be the foundation for your job search. This can also feel like a hard thing to do.

My favorite way of helping people to do this is the career stories method.
