“[My coach] was essential to my success within the CareerJoy program. Her knowledge paired with her empathy for how difficult a time transitioning can be, really gave me a relationship that I could confide in, risk, and dream big for future career goals.
Professionally, I was able to identify skills that I didn’t know I had. I was able to uncover ideas for career that I had never thought possible for myself and create a body of research into future careers.
Personally, my coach was a huge boost! The idea of transitioning careers, I had never imagined this before and it made me very trepidatious. But in having a coach that would say ‘you’re really good at this or that skill’, that gave me a tremendous boost of confidence and allowed me to start dreaming big about what I want to do with my career.” – Shannon Currie
