Is there a perfect age to be looking for your next career move? Is your perfectionism ruining your career? How do you make your internal sense of your professional identity match the external perception? There are ways to take the reins, be yourself at work, and create a career path you love. In this episode, I speak with Dr. Sarabeth Berk, the leading expert on hybrid professional identity, and a hybrid professional herself. She was featured in Forbes, is a TEDx speaker, and is the author the book of More Than My Title
In this conversation, we discuss:
- How your self-awareness shapes your professional identity and helps you communicate your value
- Tips to fight ageism in the job search
- How to shift your belief system when you think you need to be perfect in order to be accepted, valued, or successful at work
- What it looks like to be in the “prime” of your career-building years and still thrive for years to come

|Hey everyone, welcome back to the career refresh podcast. |
Over the next few weeks, I am going to be dropping interviews with my friends, the people that are making an impact in their line of work and I want to share these experts with you.
With many offices opening back with hybrid or full time I am noticing themes around
1) communication 2) how should I dress and 3) what new behaviors do I need to adapt or change as this post pandemic mindset begins to take shape.
This interview is with my friend Dr. Sarabeth Berk is the leading expert on hybrid professional identity, and a hybrid professional herself. She was featured in Forbes and is a TEDx speaker, author of More Than My Title, and recipient of a Colorado Inno on Fire award for her innovative work. Her hybrid title is Creative Disruptor because she works at the intersection of being an artist, researcher, educator, and designer.
Through groundbreaking research, Sarabeth developed a one-of-a-kind approach that takes personal branding and career development to a whole new level. Today, she helps professionals discover and articulate their hybrid professional identity and unique value in the workforce. As a result, her clients feel more seen, empowered, and confident, and teams recognize each other as more than their job titles, valuing the critical yet different roles of experts, generalists, and hybrids in the workforce.
Sarabeth obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Denver and has degrees from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Rhode Island School of Design. A few fun facts, Sarabeth serves as a mayor-appointed council member on the Denver County Cultural Council, was an art teacher in The Bahamas, and started her career as a ski instructor in Aspen.
