Human Resources Professional
"My experience with Careers by Design was fantastic. Jeanet made me feel comfortable and really cared about me. She really listened to me. Through the coaching program I gained more confidence in myself and my interview skills. I would definitely recommend Jeanet as a coach."

"Careers by Design put me in touch with Jeanet, which is one of the best career moves I ever made. Jeanet gets it. Jeanet's mock interview's helped me master answering questions that I previously was not confident in my responses. Jeanet's incredible expertise in career strategy and as a life coach was very beneficial."

"I came into coaching feeling very unsure of what my new path would look like as a result of the pandemic. Jeanet was encouraging and honest and helped me strategically work through my skills and interests and through that I found the best new fit. In 5-months I went from having my life totally turned upside down, now being enrolled into a new program to upgrade my skills. I am excited to pursue my new career path."

"It is an incredibly humbling feeling reaching a point in life where you are not sure at all what you want to do, or which direction you would like your career to turn. This is exactly where I found myself. I had never, in my life, considered using a career/life counselling/coaching service to help me find a path before, but I am so glad I did. Pat was excellent at being an empathetic, unbiased voice who, though our conversations was able to unlock my ability to take my own advice first before anyone else's. Her ability to ask appropriate, thought-provoking questions that made me re-evaluate my definition of success, while in the middle of engaging, wholesome conversation was, dare I say, A LOT of fun. I begin a new job, in a completely new industry with a completely different career path soon that checks off all the boxes of what I am looking for in a career opportunity, and I thank Pat for not only helping me design that framework, but also providing the encouragement and confidence in me to follow through."
"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! There's even more progress on the horizon, as I have a lead for a side gig to go along with my new part-time job. So I can say confidently that I've completed the program with a notch on my belt and some arrows in my quiver."
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!"
"The strengths assessment was a great start for my coaching sessions, reiterating some things I knew about myself and teaching me new strengths that I didn't realize I possessed, ultimately building my confidence in the process. The Interview preparation, creating a LinkedIn profile, and learning how to target a resume and cover letter, boasted my professionalism and branding. Capped off by the one on one coaching, it really brought it all together leaving me fully prepared to pursue my next career."

"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."
