✷ I used to worry about fitting into a "traditional workplace".
✷ I didn't want to sacrifice my creativity.
✷ I didn't think that employers wouldn't recognize my value and pay me my worth.
As an Artist, Creative Professional & Creativepreneur, for over 30 years, I have made MANY changes over the span of my career. Like you, I love variety and crave new challenges.
I've been a job seeker many times & for many reasons.
I KNOW the ups & downs, the feeling of uncertainty, instability & the discomfort that comes with “not-knowing” what to do to find a job that fit my needs.
BUT I wanted to KNOW! So much so, that I trained to be a Career Coach.
After a decade of supporting 1000’s of professionals in transition, I know what works! I want to share it with you!
There are many Career Coaches out there BUT they don't know what to do with Creatives like us.
That's why I am a Career Coach for Creatives!
Charlene is the light you need to guide you with confidence and creativity towards your goals and passion. Coupled with her a wealth of experience and knowledge her guidance will be the energy you need to help move forward. Can't recommend her enough.
During our mock interview sessions Charlene provided great verbiage/examples of ideal responses, created a variety of questions to ask me, changed questions between sessions to keep me prepared, helped me formulate answers to challenging questions, work around my schedule, created interview questions specific to my field and allowed me to book an additional session to use at my discretion in the future. I highly recommend her.
Writing has also been a passion of mine and I wrote a great deal of poetry as a child. Revisiting that passion, I’m now is working on a children’s book. My creativity meant when I started working again after children, my job evolved into graphic design. I spend 25 years on my life doing that and truly loved it.
When I was laid off I did some career exploration and discovered employment counselling. Helping others is truly my passion and if I can combine that with writing and marketing? This is my happy place!
I have helped hundreds of people with their marketing tools and, given the opportunity, I’d love to help you to create YOUR personally branded tools that will help you stand out to employers.
Let’s do this!
