  • to a career and life you'll truly enjoy. And today's episode is a very special

  • one because I will be talking to one of my

  • amazing clients her name is Herky who went from an unhappy high stress role in

  • finance and through working with me she was able to land her dream job in a

  • completely different field in project management so Herky thank you so much

  • for joining me here today thank you for having me Linda yeah I'm super excited

  • for us to be able to do this can you tell us just a bit more about your

  • background and share with us you know what was going on during that time when

  • you were looking for a job how long were you looking for and what was happening

  • actively looking for the past six months and I was getting mixed responses and

  • although I expressed my interest that I want to move into project management or

  • business analyst I kept getting calls for random very random replies I got

  • that's when you open my mind to what is it that I want and what is it that I am

  • putting it putting on paper and on my resume and I believe I lacked the

  • clarity in madam that's why I was getting random responses you help me

  • shift my thinking - how is my skills not only transferable how can I showcase my

  • experience I started getting some result but to be honest I was I did not do my

  • complete homework when I did the top-notch resume so when I did the

  • one-on-one coaching I was I had you every week you know I had my teacher and

  • within my homework do and you won't just let go of me without you know how much

  • have I done and then I've worked with you on showing my own resume where we

  • are and where we are going so I feel that really helped me I've had some

  • great jobs and some recently not I wasn't happy in my last two jobs I do

  • have an extensive financial background but I was exploring project management

  • and I was really enthusiastic about moving into that field but I didn't know

  • at the time whatever jobs I applied for it kept landing me into not not

  • something that I really wanted but yeah that's that's how it started awesome so

  • let's talk a little bit about that like when

  • you were looking for jobs and you were getting these random calls from

  • recruiters for random jobs things that you weren't even interested in I mean

  • how are you feeling about yourself at that point as a candidate you know you

  • said that you lacked a bit of self confidence and things but really like

  • can you describe a little bit more about that like emotionally mentally what were

  • you going through I was feeling helpless and I was feeling like I'm not going

  • anywhere I can't figure out where I'm going wrong is it only me and I did take

  • a few steps to you know boost my own homes too I went the local meetup and

  • you know had some buddies who were looking at jobs at that time but I feel

  • like I I was at that time feeling lonely in this you know in destroyed and not

  • getting any results so not not going anywhere with it I realized at that time

  • in fact I took a very big risk and I'm ready to quit right now without having

  • another job in my hand right everybody should do this but I had just so much

  • faith that on us working together I I just let it go I let go the job and the

  • entire summer I worked as a nine-to-five went sometimes more I worked on you know

  • revamping the resume preparing for interviews and just totally committing

  • myself to it and I feel like it was worth it so I started working with you

  • on June 15th and August 15th is when I got my my dream job yeah amazing okay so

  • I love that so to share with everyone let's talk a little bit about when you

  • went through the program in terms of what changed for you as we started

  • working together what did you start realizing about yourself what were the

  • key AHA's that you learned through the program the one-on-one coaching so the

  • number one was after I redid the resume and I put it on career builder and

  • monster and everywhere else I got a tremendous response in the field

  • that I was looking for and I was honestly overwhelmed I thought what is

  • you know going on I got so much response I could barely handle the calls that I'm

  • getting and I don't know if it works for everybody this way but it did for me

  • because every step of the way we change the resume how does it suit to the job I

  • am applying for so that boosted my self confidence you know like I said I was

  • busy nine-to-five answering calls and talking to people

  • and you know being interested other employers being interested in me so that

  • was a good boost and then our practice mock interviews that we did that also

  • helped me in preparing myself better I have performed well in my previous jobs

  • and I had the confidence I had the proof to back it up that I've done well in my

  • previous jobs but somehow I was in a in that little hole I guess that I needed

  • to come out of and sometimes you just need a person you know I need somebody

  • to hold your hand and get you out of that hole amazing amazing so then when

  • you said you got a tremendous amount of calls are a number of calls from

  • recruiters and employers I mean can you give us a ballpark like how many calls

  • would you have gotten before with your old resume your old strategies not

  • having worked with me and then what was the statistics in terms of how many

  • calls you started getting after so I would get earlier about five calls in a

  • week and here I was getting 35 roughly calls in a week Wow it was pretty

  • amazing and my family members were like who keeps calling you all day and it was

  • summertime so the kid my kids were home and they're like I would shut the door

  • on them taking calls so I will that kept me motivated that kept me going but you

  • know after a month of getting these calls and giving me the interviews I

  • started getting a little impatient okay where is it finally leading to when I'm

  • going to get the final offer and that's where you told me it's summertime I gave

  • myself that much time to not worry just keep going you know just just

  • relentlessly just just keep going and believe it

  • around August 16th is when I had my offer in my hand so okay so I also want

  • to touch base on the contrast between what you were doing before and what

  • you're doing now because you you clearly made a career switch like a lot of

  • people out there you know they don't just want to find a job they want to

  • find a job that is more in line with what they're interested in and like you

  • are more interested in the business analysis project management space but

  • you were doing finance in the past so you know that switch I mean did you find

  • it difficult as we went through it just how did you feel going through this

  • shift in careers I was excited and scared at the same

  • time but two key myself abreast of the you know the

  • changes or whatever the requirements are I took a lot of courses in you know

  • Coursera and I just tried to update myself on the knowledge and in the new

  • field I have to constantly be initially it it is a bit you know it was a lot of

  • hard work nothing comes easy so so yes III did on my part that but having it

  • support took the stress off from me completely so I could focus on on

  • getting the job awesome awesome and I wanted to get back actually back

  • to these those interviews that you had gone on you know you said that your

  • confidence had increased when you were applying for the jobs and getting calls

  • from recruiters and employers once you actually went out for interviews did you

  • find that you also were different compared to how you used to be how you

  • approached interviewing yes I did after we practiced our interviewing skills

  • definitely it made a difference in not only in my confidence but is also in

  • framing my answers and trying to understand what the interview is trying

  • to ask also your tip on having the right energy yes I try to do that too

  • yeah great and did you get positive comments from interviewers like at the

  • end saying wow I think you'd be a great fit like would were there anything that

  • those interviewers had said to you after you interviewed with them I I got a good

  • feeling from this and honestly the second interview is when I got the job

  • itself so I didn't have to go that far right well I spoke to white I did get a

  • you know like a a very positive feedback awesome awesome

  • so Herky what really was your experience working with me through stand
