I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for your career advice. I now have my ‘dream’ job, although at the time I met you I didn’t even know what that was. I think your advice to keep thinking about my skills and interests (and to not apply to jobs I don’t really want) was a big help.
The programme gave me direction and immediately made me start to feel more confident. After our first session I went away feeling much more confident and inspired, and although I still have, albeit to a lesser degree now obviously, the fears of not succeeding, I did come away feeling that it was giving me the confidence and the positivity that I needed to believe in myself.
The programme made me feel more focussed on where I wanted to go and gave me confidence in my ability to achieve what I wanted to. It also gave me confidence in my current role, and made me value myself and my strengths which made me realise if I wanted to make this career change it has to be now.
Sarah helped me to reflect on my values and identify what skills I am good at and enjoy. It was a really helpful starting point for me to reflect on my career and start focussing on the future. I was able to specify what areas I wanted to go over and Sarah supported me in a challenging way – helping me to find the answers. I enjoyed the holistic approach which I think is vital. Thank you, Career Tree!
