Motivation and Mindset Transformed

After the career coaching, there was an immediate change as my motivation and mindset transformed. Within 6 months, I was shortlisted for two jobs, did interviews and was offered both jobs. I had the opportunity to choose the job that aligned to my dream. Before enrolling for coaching, I was lost and desperately looking for help to improve my motivation at work as well as find a new and challenging job opportunity. I was stuck in the same job for over 10 years. Potential employers were not responding to my job applications.I enrolled for the Career Development Coaching programme for working professionals that helped me identify obstacles to my career progression, rebuilt my self confidence and got a better understanding on how to take charge and manage my career. Through career bridge, I was also supported with writing a professional CV and cover letter and Coached on Interviewing Skills.

Amazing professional approach

The Career Coach did a great job in reviewing my CV and providing me with Competency Based Interview Coaching including 2 Mock Interviews. In my first consultation, the coach was able to identify the critical gaps between where I was and where I wanted to go and through coaching, I was able to identify my unique combination of strengths and how to bring them out while pitching for a position.
