Julie Bauke is The Chief Career Happiness Officer of The Bauke Group. She is as serious about your Career Happiness as she is her own — and she is deadly serious about hers.
She started The Bauke Group after a lifetime of believing that she had not an entrepreneurial bone in her body. She got tired, after too many years in corporate America, of being around the startlingly large number of people who were miserable at work, and had no clue how to fix it. She knew that she had to find that “entrepreneurial bone” and do something about it!
In her business, her singular focus is giving you the tools, resources, and inspiration to Define, Get, and Own your Career Happiness, regardless of where you are in your career lifecycle or your life.
She loves to speak to groups about Career Happiness. She has been told countless times that she's a dynamic, humorous, and engaging speaker and facilitator who speaks about careers and jobs in a way that no one else does. What makes her “skip to the shower” every morning is the privilege of working with individuals and groups, or creating content or programs that will move the Career Happiness needle in practical, actionable ways.
In her career, she has had Human Resources leadership roles with companies in a variety of industries. She also have significant experience in career management services. Furthermore, Bauke has worked closely with individuals with diverse backgrounds, from CEO’s to professional athletes, coaching them in pursuit of their best “career life.” She is on the Board of Directors of Bad Girl Ventures, a micro-lending nonprofit for women entrepreneurs.
She is a proud graduate of Purdue University (Go Boilers!) and lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with as many dogs as she can convince her husband that they can handle. She also has two sons who are in college.
