Looking at the cargo ship that was stuck in the Suez Canal and thinking, “I can relate?”

We all go through periods of feeling “stuck,” whether it’s in an industry we don’t love, or a career that feels uninspiring.

The trick to un-sticking? Like the cargo ship, it’s good to try different strategies. Reach out to your network for informational interviews, try a new (and wildly unrelated to your career) hobby, and take a gander at new roles. You’ll never know what might help you shake loose.
