“For me, I discovered that the meaning in my life was to help empower others so that they could live a life of success infused with wellbeing.” (02:01)
“The linear resume forces somebody to read in a line down who you are and so that puts a great deal of responsibility on the hiring manager or on the recruiter to try to make some sort of integrated collaborative sense of this story.” (11:28)
“There is an enormous barrier and that’s why most people outsource the resume and that’s somebody else with their limited understanding of you or whatever type of resumes they generally write.” (18:45)
About Lori Wallace:
Lori Wallace is the Founder and CEO of Career Ecology – a hub spot for Work-Life Empowerment. She’s mentored job seekers for over twenty years as the owner of her own search agency where she matched prominent hospital systems like Cedars Sinai, Kaiser Permanente, and Sutter Health to skilled and passionate professionals ranging from CEO to Lab Assistant.
But, Lori brings much more than meets the eye. She calls herself a “Work-Life Doula”. Out of the angst of 2016, Lori founded Career Ecology in order to, as she puts it, “help every human shed the old, awaken the imaginal, and fly free.”
Lori has a degree in Psychology from UCLA and certifications from the Nurtured Heart Institute and with Mary Reynold’s Thompson’s Wild Soul facilitation. She brings a “practical + poetic” approach to work-life across all critical touch points, including job search, resume, interviewing, as well as the touch point to self. Lori views the realm of “work” as the ideal entry point for radical initiation and healing in the world. It’s the modern-day “hero’s journey.
