If you are like most of my clients, you've come to a point in your life where the career you chose (or fell into) has lost its appeal and you need help finding a new career.
My clients say things like:
"I feel like there is something wrong with me. I should have this figured out by now."
"My career hasn't turned out the way I thought it would. I don't know how I got here. "
"I've tried doing several different things and I can't find the right fit."
"I want a job that is meaningful. One where I am doing something that is personally fulfilling and is a better fit for who I am."
"I am very unhappy in my job, but I am also worried about my (family's) financial future. I am afraid what I want to do won't pay enough."
If this sounds like you, the good news is that my passion is helping you find the career that is right for you.
The first ten years of my career was a series of "trying to find my career path" jobs. Parole Officer, Counselor, Event Coordinator at a very large and well-known university. I enjoyed them all for a time, but somewhere around year two, the shine would begin to wear off and I would trudge off to work each day wondering, "Is all there is?" Eventually, I off-ramped to stay home with my children full-time. When it was time for me to return to work, I stalled. Every job posting seemed like drudgery. My attempts to discover what I should do resulted in getting even more stuck. Tired of the inner-struggle, I counseled and coached myself until I took action and created my own multi-faceted career which, as it turns out, needs to have lots of variety, freedom and flexibility in order for me to thrive. They say we teach what we need to learn - perhaps that's why I do this work.
As your Career Change Coach, I will encourage you to think about your life in a much bigger and broader way than perhaps you have ever done before. You will be offered ways to sample potential careers before jumping in. We will use a system of checks and balances to ensure you don’t make a mistake, waste time or money, by choosing the wrong career. You will be encouraged to go after your dreams and take bold action, but after thoughtful consideration and total awareness of how making this change will impact your life, your finances, and the people you love. Then, together, we will create realistic, actionable strategy for making your career change. We will discuss timelines and deadlines. Expectations and action steps including everything from revising your resume and polishing up your LinkedIn profile to developing your job search and networking strategy.
My clients don't talk the walk. They WALK it. They take action and change their LIVES.
