Halimah Bellows to lead discussion at Washington State Career Development Conference

Author/Counselor/Career Coach, Halimah Bellows will lead a round table discussion at the Washington State Career Development Conference on Friday, May 20 at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington about her new book, Champion Your Career: Winning in the World of Work.

At the conference, Bellows will also do a demonstration on how to use her unique tool, CAREER QUEST CARDS TM ©, a career coaching book in a box. The set of 24 cards provides a distillation of 30 key career-coaching exercises. The cards are color-coded in five categories, allowing users the flexibility to work with them randomly or use them in a sequence that suits their own learning style and needs. By keeping a journal, users can track the discoveries they make about their values and preferences in the process of doing the exercises. 

Career coaches and counselors, career development professionals and outplacement consultants, as well as high school guidance counselors and advisors can also utilize the CAREER QUEST CARDS TM © in working with their students or clients. The package of cards includes suggestions for using the exercises interactively with individuals or organizing workshops where people work together as partners or in small groups. Young people in particular may find the colorful cards more fun than reading a book about career development.

At the conference, Bellows will host a table where her book and sets of cards will be available for purchase.

Become Your Own Career Champion!

You can create your own positive perspective with the messages you play in your inner dialogue and then manifest those messages in the material world. You can do this for yourself. Do not allow other people to tell you, “Don’t do this,” or “You shouldn’t do that or “This is not good enough.” Instead you can say, “I know what works for me. I can make my own life and I can champion my career. I can make it happen for myself. I can be successful at whatever I choose.”

Book Excerpt

As you move through this process you will see that when you show up to work, you get to decide how your situation is going to be. There are no victims in the career development ladder unless you choose to be one. The inner voice that says, “I have to get a job,” gradually shifts to be more about, “I want to do something that serves me. I want to be in an environment that’s nurturing and productive.”
