CASE: "Melanie"

Can I do something else: am I good enough to….?

"I lost my job, and job opportunities are contracting in my industry. I don’t feel confident about being able to get another job. I want to be able to promote myself as a job seeker, but there aren’t too many roles I can apply for."

Outcomes: We worked on restoring this client’s confidence in her abilities, identifying her strengths, interests and transferable skills. Knowing the extra tools she had in her skills and interests toolbox enabled her to piece together the components of her ideal role.

Her perceptions weren’t limited by the past role or experience. This opened her up to seeing and seeking more opportunities. She was able to formulate goals and strategies to find the right kind of jobs and to identify the kinds of companies to target beyond what she had previously thought was possible.
