I received this email from a former career coaching client, and I am thrilled for her! Here’s her message:
Wanted to let you know of my exciting new job.
Through a contact I made, I was asked to interview for 2 different positions with the South Carolina Dept. of Employment. Both weren’t ideal, but would have been a good foot in the door. I found out I didn’t get either of those positions.
Last week one of the women I interviewed with called me and said they have to fill a Case Mgr / Career Specialist position ASAP because the current Case Manager moved to a different department. The position is temporary and they will hire for the position at the end of May. I guess I made a good enough impression for her to think of me. I accepted the position the next morning. I don’t think I would have gotten this job in any other way. Even though I have all the transferable skills, they would have wanted social services experience.
So currently I work part time (28 hours) for Piedmont Technical College in the Dept. of Employment office helping people find jobs. It’s really exciting and I love going to work.
Just wanted to update you,
Congratulations Beth! She remained persistent in her career search and kept looking for her dream job. She didn’t settle, and was able to land something to get her foot in the door!
