A Message of Hope 

from Shirin Khamisa, Founder & Practice Leader

"Having a career you feel good about is an important part of life.

Yet it's a common challenge that many people seeking career counselling or career coaching face. 

And, it can be hard to figure out how to make it happen while working full time or dealing with the challenge of unemployment.

Still, you persevere and continue trying to solve your career challenge.

For 13+ years, we've helped hundreds of people across Canada 
feel better and thrive in their careers. 

Our coaching  gets results for all ages, career stages & all industries.

You deserve a career you feel good about and a happier life!  Together, let's make it happen!"

"I highly recommend Careers by Design to anyone who wants to start feeling better now and have a career that really fits who they are."

"Participating in the More Happy Mondays career coaching program at Careers by Design gave me the tools to feel more positive and handle this stressful situation better.

All this boosted my confidence so I could take the next steps to get out of a difficult situation.

My coach helped me to explore my options and I decided on a new direction with confidence."

Amy Sullivan's Testimonial for Career Guidance and Advice from Careers by Design

Marketing Coordinator

"Coaching provided an invaluable third party soundboard, detached from my family and workmates, to truly help me evaluate my situation."

"I have worked with Careers by Design over the past 4 months, as I was in a career rut and questioning my choice of being a creative professional.

Coaching provided an invaluable third party soundboard, detached from my family and workmates, to truly help me evaluate my situation and the viability of staying put.

All told - it was by no means an easy journey - I had to take an honest look at myself, and evaluate what I was able to personally change. In the end, I got a $10,000 raise and a promotion!"
