Head Editor & Writing Coach
"I genuinely enjoyed the process of working with Pat to clarify my goals and learn how to more effectively meet various challenges. We dug deep psychologically, much deeper than I had expected a career coach would go with me, and every step of the way I felt that Pat really got me. This was an exercise in bravery, compassion, and self-reflection in which I felt seen and supported. I recommend Pat as a career coach (or anything coach) without reservation!"

"Before I signed up for Careers by Design, I was facing a lot of uncertainty and anxiety about my future. It was beginning to take a toll on my mental and physical health. Fortunately, I signed up for the 4 course program and was able to overcome these feelings. This is a great program for anyone who is going through a transition."

Sales Systems & Operations Lead
"What prompted me to choose Careers by Design was their holistic approach to coaching and the mind & heart integration framework they offer, which for me is critical to achieving sustainable and fulfilling results. I have had the pleasure to work with Pat Parisi on a career transition and she was instrumental in helping me gain more clarity around my strengths and values, which allowed me to define the type of work I wanted to pursue going forward. I felt a great connection with Pat! Our conversations were all online, with me being based in Vancouver-BC and her in Waterloo-ON, which worked extremely with my irregular schedule. With her bright, warm, empathetic and calm demeanour she was able to guide me back to realignment with my purpose when I started to wobble in my decision, and this has made all the difference! Pat has been that illuminating, steady light that you need access to when going through a period of transition, and for that I am forever thankful! I have recently accepted a job offer in a new industry that I am extremely excited about and I am truly grateful for Pat's support along the way. I would definitely recommend Pat and Careers by Design to anyone looking for meaningful career coaching, despite your location!"

Social Media Coordinator
"I was very hesitant and very skeptical coming into my coaching sessions with Careers By Design. Almost immediately, I was so impressed by how my coach, Pat, pivoted my perspective on choosing the right career path for me. We dissected my values, my professional/academic past and even practiced some stress relief techniques that are truly effective. After my 4 sessions I found a job that I'm really enjoying so far."

Praise for Linda
Senior Product Manager
"Highly recommend! Linda was an exceptional coach through a difficult time. Being in a transitional phase of my life, I was unsure how to invigorate my job search. She was consistently engaged, patient and encouraging as we explored my skills and interests. She offered wonderful advice throughout the process and recommended some essential next steps. Together we built an incredible strength statement which I can draw from and a solid strategy for my resume/cover letters/interviews that will be invaluable in the coming months. I can't say enough good things about her kind and insightful approach. Thank you!"

Senior Project Manager
"Working with Linda at Careers by Design helped me find direction in making a career change in a personally challenging and confusing time in my life. But most importantly, the coaching process helped me gain peace of mind with the process of leaving my job. I am taking steps toward my future, and laying the foundation based on my values as I look for my next role."

"Linda is a talented counselor and coach. Her work is heart-centered, whole person focused, and provides powerful and positive outcomes! Focusing on WHO you are before you determine your next career move is at the core of Linda Faucheux’s work in contemplative career counseling. Her compassionate guidance provides deep (powerful) mindfulness techniques that connects head to heart and the awareness that leads to solution-focused outcomes. I highly recommend Linda. She will exceed your expectations."
