My name is Joseph Mercer, and I am a Writer, an IT Management Professional, and a Career and Business Consultant. 

Career Motivation

Over the last two decades, I have assisted countless professionals as a career consultant. In 2019, I created the site Career Motivation as a way to help more people find meaningful and fulfilling employment.

Career Consultant

During my time with the Department of Defense, I’ve supported numerous multi-million dollar projects and critical missions that have given me a genuine understanding of what makes an effective team and how to plan and execute projects effectively. In my opinion, it’s all about communication, transparency, and the willingness to roll up your sleeves and do the work. But not only that, I believe that people are the building blocks of any great organization; and if any plan, project, or organization is to be successful – it starts with building a great team.

The Secret

I also believe that the secret to finding career success is identifying your passion and being passionate about achieving your career goals. That means you have to be willing:

  1. Be willing to learn
  2. Be willing to adjust 
  3. Be willing to put in the work
  4. Be willing to grow
  5. Be willing to ask for what you want

Education & Achievements

I hold a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership specializing in Information Technology Management from National University in San Diego, California.  I also have earned numerous awards to include the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service, several Achievement Medals for Civilian Service, and the Bronze Star Medal.
