I’m Samorn Selim. 

I’m a lawyer turned career coach on a mission for us to take our careers from dread to joy. As the daughter of poor Lao refugees, I was told to pay my dues.

After coaching over 1,000 clients, I now realize that the idea that you have to pay your dues and work in a toxic place is a myth. 

We can face our challenges head on, do work we are passionate about, and work with good people with kind hearts to make a big impact. So even as we struggle, we can find a sense of belonging.

Do you know that you’re supposed to ask your network to help you?  But you don’t want to feel icky doing it?  Rupa shares:


- How she shared that she was interested in a role even though it was uncomfortable.

- How her informational interviews led her to her dream role.

- How she graciously asked her network to help get her introductions that led to job interviews.

- How to make an impact even when your department is under-resourced.

- How going to therapy helped her to manage her new job and life changes.
