So Your New Job Isn’t Quite What You Expected...Your Next Move

So Your New Job Isn’t Quite What You Expected...

With expectations of a fresh start, new beginning, new boss, new team, and all the things that come with your first day at a new job, when it is not what you expected or were looking forward to, it can be really hard. But the real question is, what now?

Applicable to so many, tune in as Kimberly dives deeper into this reader question from her column in The Cut - New York Magazine, and learn what you can take away from that “bad job.”


  • What happens when your new job isn’t what you expected?
  • Evaluate your expectations of the role vs the reality of it
  • How to approach leadership with a plan
  • Remember, every job adds tools to your toolkit


“I'm a big believer in strengthening your strengths and aligning your career with your passions and with your interests. Imagine how you'd feel if every single day you were in the world of work, doing things that you were interested in, things that you loved.”

Kimberly’s content is billed as being for women and people of color. As a white male, I feel that her content is universally applicable. As a person that benefited from privilege I appreciate having access to this point of view. I feel that being able to get an understanding of these topics from her perspective helps me better approach these topics with my employees.I hope she keeps producing new episodes and publishing books.
