Lynette's Career and
Career Counsellor - Entrepreneur since 2009
Here in the office, we begin by building rapport with you as a bridge to a collaborative relationship. During the Free session we will explore 3 specific areas: 1). your self-awareness; 2). your barriers to reemployment; 3). your actions needed to bring about change, and use a "baby-step" approach to job search, and the benefits of focused job search until employed.
|My experience as an employee in helping Internationally Trained Professionals and downsized Experienced Professionals from 1998, opened my eyes to the barriers they faced that held them back from re-employment. Those experiences propelled me back to school where I gained my Career and Work Counsellor Diploma, worked in the field to gain experience to become an advocate for job seekers -a Career Counsellor Entrepreneur.||
