IT IS GLOBAL CAREERS MONTH

Updated: Nov 12


career development

People are often curious when I tell them I am a career development professional.

They usually say something like, ‘so you help people find jobs?’ or ‘you help people write resumes, right?’ Sure, I say, but...there is much more...


✔️Much of my work is helping clients build confidence. I’m surprised when I encounter clients with excellent skills who fear competition and believe others are better than them. I also cannot count the people who tell me they have imposter syndrome.


✔️As I work through the usual career clarification exercises and discussions, I ask what others have said about them:


-What feedback have they received in a performance review?

-Have they received positive emails from colleagues?

-Describe a positive interaction with a client, customer, etc.


I tell them to write these down and keep them handy when they are nervous about a job interview.


✔️This helps them recognize their strengths, giving them the confidence to move toward their objective.
