Any time you visit a new site for the first time, it can be tough to find your bearings. Which is why this page is a great place to start!
Who Am I?
My name is Matthew Oleniuk, and I’m what I like to call a “Career Nomad.” The short version of my bio is that I’ve worked over 65 jobs in six different countries, and through my extremely busy career, I’ve developed a method to evolve my career into whatever I want it to be. On this site, I share all of the techniques I’ve used to build a career that constantly changes, brings challenge and excitement, and earns me a very comfortable six figures per year.
My goal in this site (and through my speaking and coaching) is to teach how to build the dynamic career you want – without compromise.
(The long version of my story can be found here.)
What kinds of articles are posted here?
Our Featured Posts are in-depth looks at specific topics related to building the career you want. Some are very tactical (like how to repackage your experience); others deal with the strategy and mindset needed for a career built on change (such as setting imaginative, shoot-for-the-moon career targets); and still others are lessons I’ve learned from my many jobs, and how I’ve used those lessons to inform my future (like when I was an investment advisor).
If you connect with me on LinkedIn, you’ll also see our Quick Tips posted twice per week. These Tips are short, motivational quotes, designed to keep you on track and on target! Feel free to share – and don’t forget to connect with me!
Okay, so where do we get started?
There are a few Featured Posts which are foundational to becoming a Career Nomad, and a great place for all newcomers to start:
- 6 Traits Every Career Changer Needs: What exactly is the make-up of someone who likes to change jobs regularly? Here we take a look at the bigger personality traits.
- Why You Should Change Jobs Every 18 Months: Think you should stick with one job until you become an expert? In this article, we explore the dangers of trying to achieve “perfection,” and how it can become a time sink.
- The Career Mindset That Could Be Holding You Back: Your career can be as big or as small as you want it to be. If you really want to accomplish great things, you have to take ownership over your entire career – and that starts with the mindset.
- 6 Degrees of Job Separation Between You And Your Dreams: Every job in the market can be linked to another, and the biggest purpose of this site is not only to find those links, but to make sure we can get you from where you are, to where you want to be.
Please by all means don’t stop with those sites, but I figured they’d be a good place to start your journey.
An important note!
Maybe it’s already been assumed, but I want to make sure this is abundantly clear for any skeptics that might find themselves here:
Every article you’ll find here is 100% based on my own successful experience with continuous career change – no made-up theories, no pie-in-the-sky ideas! Everything I write about has been proven through my own trial and error, and absolutely nothing has been distorted or exaggerated.
If you have any questions about my experiences that get deeper into the details than the articles allow, please by all means shoot me an email! I’m happy to chat. ☺
Enjoy the site, and happy career travels!
