We all want and need to love what we do for a career but when you have ADHD, it’s almost a requirement that you absolutely love what you do for work. Jobs or careers that don’t offer us the opportunity to dig into our passions usually end up being short-lived.
In this episode of Overcoming Distractions the Podcast, I talk with Shell Mendelson, a career coach that specializes in working with adults who have ADHD and need or want to find or change their career. She talks about why it’s important to find a career that you can fall in love with, what makes a good career for those adults with ADHD, why some with ADHD jump from one job to the next and much more about how to manage your career with ADHD.
Other questions I asked her include;
What are some of the reasons those with ADHD begin to dislike their work or profession?
What are the signs those with ADHD need to look out for if their career is turning out to not be a good fit?
What is the worst adults with ADHD can do when they decide they don’t want to do that line of work anymore?
How do you start the process of finding a new career?
How do you really find out your passion?
Where does ADHD and career intersect?
How do you know if you made the right or wrong choice?
