In this podcast episode, as a wildlife professional, I share my personal experience and offer valuable advice for aspiring wildlife professionals who are struggling to secure their dream job. I discuss the importance of making small, consistent changes to your behavior and how James Clear's book, Atomic Habits, can help you achieve your career goals. I explore how to apply the Four Laws of Behavior Change to specific areas of life, including finding the right career path, establishing a routine, and maintaining motivation throughout the career search process. This episode is packed with actionable tips and real-life examples to help you build lasting habits that lead to success in finding the right wildlife job. Tune in!
