You're at the point of your student life when you're asking yourself:
~ What major should I pick?
~ Have I picked the right one?
~ How do I start examining my career path?
After all, you have this lifetime to do something wonderful, meaningful and impactful. So you might as well make solid thoughtful choices right from the start.
We're educated on so many topics (including some of doubtful usefulness), but rarely, if ever, we're taught how to choose our careers - one of the most important decisions of our lives.
Do not despair!
There's a pragmatic uplifting method to guide you how to examine and discover your career options...
I wish that when I was making my first career decisions, someone took my hand and told me: Pause! Don't rush. Consider why you're making these choices.
It took me more than 20 years to finally arrive to a point when my career is fully aligned with values, makes the type of difference I know I can and should make, and works for my life.
Hello, I am Misha Rubin. Until recently I was a Partner at Big Four management consulting firm, where I spent 15 fruitful years. I managed over hundred-million-dollar worth of projects, advised a countless number of clients, and guided hundreds of careers.
My corporate experience, personal quest for meaning and fulfillment, and rigorous study, birthed The Career Leap method - a pragmatic, elevating and actionable process designed for people to obtain clarity about their next career moves.
Be Ready for What's Coming!
1. It's likely that you'll have more than one career in your lifetime
Some decades back, people in your shoes were picking a career for the rest of their life. Times have changed! Industries, careers, skills, and requirements are evolving fast.
Personally, I think we live in much more fun times! But it makes it even more important to understand how to create criteria to choose your next career or evaluate next job opportunity.
2. Knowing what to do with your life is a function of knowing oneself
We are all designed in unique ways. What if you knew and could articulate:
~ what brings you a sense of meaning and fulfillment?
~ what are you ingredients for success?
~ what work arrangements are motivating for you?
~ should I start my own business or work for someone?
Answering these questions creates criteria for you to explore industries, careers, majors and business ideas and see which ones are worth pursuing.
But a bigger question is what types of experiences you still need to gain to answer these important questions about you.
3. Having an "explorer" mindset is beyond finding one time answers
There are very few things in this life that we know for sure. But you can count on this:
~ who you are will continue evolving
~ our society is in a constant transition
~ technology accelerates societal change processes
In other words: everything you know will change. The "explorer" mindset in your career will serve you for the rest of your life.
3 Pillars of The Career Leap method for Students:

2. Dismantle Disempowering Beliefs: developing mastery of recognizing and deconstructing disempowering beliefs, and creating new empowering context

From Being Stuck to Freedom
As a student I had trouble figuring out what career I wanted in the future. There seemed to be too many options and I couldn't decide which one to choose. Taking Misha's class helped me figure out what career to choose. It also provided me with lessons that I will cherish in the future! He catered the classes to my unique experience and we had engaging conversations that helped me get out of my comfort zone. The questions he asked not only helped my career choice but helped me in my personal life as well. I am grateful to have learned from someone who is so insightful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is struggling with finding the right path for themselves.
