"I've made great strides and I've come a long way."

I'm very satisfied with the work that Pat and I have done together over the past year.

I've made great strides and I've come a long way. I've found a foothold in the learning field and Pat helped me tremendously with the transition. That's really all I could ask for!

"...an opportunity to achieve congruence between what is important to me and my working life."

It felt like finding a job was a monolithic task before the coaching began.

I really appreciated starting the process by looking at what was important to me and using the exercise as an opportunity to achieve congruence between what is important to me and my working life. And also, having someone support these choices was very valuable.

Working with Careers by Design was a great experience. Their processes were explained thoroughly and I felt fully informed before I committed to a coaching program.

Their emphasis on a personalized and holistic approach with each client confirmed that this was the right place for me.

Pat’s calm, caring, and gentle probing during our sessions together gave me new ideas, a deeper awareness of who I am, and confidence in my choices. Thank you Pat, and Careers by Design for helping me move into the next phase of my career.

"...gave me the tools I needed to help me find a career path aligned with my qualifications and interests."

Linda was a great Career Coach and gave me the tools I needed to help me find a career path aligned with my qualifications and interests.

I had felt stuck for a few years in my career search and the coaching sessions highlighted my interests, helped with my resume, networking techniques and more guiding me to achieve a new position that I am excited to pursue!

You will have to put in the effort but Linda will give you the tools and guidance to be successful. Thanks Linda!
