Your Career Counsellor

Charlene Wright

I'm a creative, like you - so I get it.

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 job hopped when I moved from ON to BC, when I was injured on the job, when I was uninspired in a job and when I was inspired to do MORE!

I KNOW the ups & downs, the feeling of instability & the discomfort that comes with “not-knowing” what to do.

So much so, that I trained to be a career counsellor.

After a decade of serving 1000’s of professionals in transition, I know two things for sure, that SO MANY competent professionals HATE job search, and that career coaching really does work.

Until I figured out the secrets to successfully self-manage my career transitions, & just like many of my customers, I made mistakes along the way. I want to prevent you from making them too, so you can save time & money. I invite you to check out my coaching options below.
