I am beginning to dread going to work, I think it's time for a change?
I want to move forward in my career, how do I balance my life and work?
I lost my job, now what?
I have been out of the workforce for a while, how can I go back?
Our jobs are much more than just the way we make a living. They influence how we see ourselves and how we feel about ourselves, as well as the way others see us. Our jobs give us structure, purpose, and meaning. That’s why job change, or job loss can be such a stressful thing. Whether you choose the time to make a career switch or it chooses you, you'll likely have mixed feelings about the change. All career transitions include a mix of things you can control and things you can't.
Preparing you for interviews by developing techniques to reduce anxiety and to learn more about yourself and your strengths, so that you can better articulate them to an employer.
Helping you become comfortable "telling your story", communicating gaps in employment and periods of underemployment by identifying and highlighting your strengths and life experiences.
Assisting you in removing obstacles that are getting in the way of finding the career you love (fear of rejection, self doubt, procrastination, etc.).
Coaching and role playing to develop communication skills in the areas of networking and interviewing.
Helping you obtain a better work-life balance or deal with issues related to promotion or success in the workplace.
Helping you find a job you love!
Research shows that the traits that lead people to love their work are really pretty general, and can be found in a variety of different career paths. These traits include things like autonomy, a sense of purpose, competence, creativity, and respect and recognition for your abilities. Once you recognize that these traits have little to do with following one set, preset career path and can be cultivated in many different fields, you can safely abandon the idea that there’s only one single right job for you. Leaving a job or losing a job can be a gift, allowing you to move into a career you love.
