#60: Career Goals, Negotiating and More with Lexi of Work Sugar

I worked in Corporate America for over 11 years and there was nothing more exciting than growing in the company.

Each move I made in the company came as a result of setting and achieving goals within my current position.

Not only would I be referred and recruited for bigger and better positions, I’d be given hefty raises too! Nowadays, employer hopping is viewed as a way to get more money faster, but if you do it right!

No matter where you work or what you do, there’s always bigger goals to be set and more money to be made. Just ask corporate HR Rep and Career Coach Lexi of Work Sugar.

In this episode, Lexi and I are talking about setting career goals, making career shifts, negotiating tactics and more!
