Career Coaching

"My workplace situation meant that I was keen for a new job.  I was making  applications and although  I was experiencing some success with initial interviews and sometimes through to final interview stage, I was not getting any further.  I knew that I needed to improve my interview skills  if I was to get that job offer.
Career Design was recommended to me. I committed to a full process which included identifying values, compatible workplace environments, career goal setting and associated action planning. Alisa's skill and support in creating a new CV and covering letter as well as interview coaching was high quality and enjoyable. Her advice/challenge to apply for 3 jobs a week kept the momentum up. I took time off work to dedicate quality time to her coaching. To be able to debrief with Alisa post interview was really useful and I gained a huge amount of confidence in my ability to interview successfully. I began to do really well including a close second for a position that I had no sector  experience in. The job I accepted is a leadership one, very aligned with the career goals that I had  clarified with the Career Design coaching and the context of the role is a perfect match for me. Hence, I am highly motivated and engaged. Thanks to Alisa and Career Design's processes."
