Hi, I'm Avalyn - the Career Adventurist!
if you're looking to create a fulfilling, flexible & fun career, you're in the right place!
it all started when...
I left the legal profession back in 2000 - and ventured into a weird and wonderful career path that made no sense to most people, but gave me a sense of freedom and fulfillment that I would not have otherwise enjoyed. Even more crazy, was that I never applied for a job after 2000, but have since worked in global and regional positions in a public relations firm, executive search, branding agencies, finance, luxury retail, skincare and timber genetics! I've also been a television actress and copywriter. Read my Career Adventuring story here.
Since as far back as I can remember, people have been asking me how I made my transition out of a legal career into such a diverse number of industries and positions.
Some people have called me a "jack of all trades" or dabbler (even worse, a job-hopper), while others have contributed to, marvelled at and celebrated the range of experiences I've enjoyed (thank you!).
It took me 15 years to come to terms with this path - I call it accidental - and to really embrace it as my "unique superpower". But now that I have, I feel that there is increasing interest among professionals to get out of their shell, and explore paths less taken.
So, this website is my contribution to your career exploration. Whether you are embarking on a new adventure, or just thinking about what you can do differently, I would love to add value to you and your quest.
So enjoy the ride, and welcome to the world of Career Adventurism!
