This week’s lead question was posed by What’s Your Work Fit? viewer Julie:
Julie entered the workforce in Fall 2022, joining up with a mid-sized medical services company on one of the client support teams. She loves the company which engages an ever-changing marketplace.
But she feels as if she’s run out of tricks in her trick bag, to respond to all the novel client demands and technological changes including AI.
Julie recognizes that she needs to up her game but she is unsure—and a bit anxious— about how to engage her supervisor for help. And as she writes “I need upskilling. How do I ask for it?”
During this information packed episode, Marti also answers “what’s your work fit?’ Her personal vision surely will resonate with many career professionals.
