In their lifetime, the average American works 90,000 hours. That astonishing amount exemplifies why it's critical to pick a career that fulfills both your passion and your purpose. But what if you don’t know what that career should be?
In this episode of PCTY Talks, Ginny Clarke and host Shari Simpson discuss how you define for yourself what your career looks like through self-reflection, competencies and resume writing techniques.
Ginny Clarke was Director, Executive Recruiting at Google from August 2016 until November 2020. In this role, she led the Diversity, Internal Mobility and the Non-tech Recruiting teams. Her team of North American recruiters found and hired senior leaders (Directors +) for finance, sales, marketing and other G&A functions across Google.
Before Google, Ginny was a Partner at Spencer Stuart, the global executive search firm, based in Chicago. For 12 years, she worked in the firm’s Financial Services and Financial Officer Practices, and co-founded and led Spencer Stuart’s Global Diversity Practice. She left Spencer Stuart to write a book titled Career Mapping: Charting Your Course in the New World of Work, which was published in 2011. The book provides a framework that empowers individuals to plot and assess their professional competencies, and strategically navigate their careers.
After the book was published, Ginny ran her own executive search and talent management firm for 3 years before becoming a Senior Partner for Executive Search in the U.S. at Knightsbridge, a Canadian human capital solutions firm.
