I worked in IT for 13 years, and despite having a successful career, I was not fully satisfied with my job. A few years ago I decided to have a career change and started my own business as a coach myself. However, even though coaching was very fulfilling, my business was not thriving. I did not have enough clients and I could not reach the level of financial success needed.
Initially, Enhancv reached out to me for a potential partnership. I liked the Enhancv platform a lot because of its great set of features and very smooth interactions. When I learned about the career counseling services on top of the platform, I decided to set the partnership aside and use the service for myself.
I got help with my decision to pivot my career
The hardest part of moving on from coaching was letting go of my ego. At the beginning it felt like a drag through the mud because of the time and effort I had invested into my business. However, working with Enhancv made me realize that stepping back from coaching is not a sign of defeat, but a step forward in my career.
Sometimes the confidence boost makes all the difference
I have done a lot in my career, but similar to many others, I used to think my experience is not good enough for a competitive job. The professional career counselor helped me gain confidence in my skills and experiences by confirming my accomplishments and capabilities were relevant. I believe this external confirmation improved the way I represented myself in my job search and made a big difference in the results.
How my personal career counselor Paul helped me
Paul is a very skillful counselor. His writing is great, and his general nature of support and sharing is extremely pleasant. He is very knowledgeable about what works and what doesn’t in a competitive job hunt. Most importantly, he’s excellent at finding the quantitative and measurable achievements out of a descriptive job experience.
I needed things to move very quickly and Paul kept up with my speed very well. As a result, I landed a job as a Managed Services Consultant which is a great outcome for our work together.
