In the News

Longtime columnist for the Globe and Mail, Harvey Schacter, had this to say about Elaine in his article, Tips From the Pros on How to Advance Your Career.

“Elaine Sigurdson stresses that the foundation of success is self-awareness. It’s a problem especially for young people making critical career and educational planning choices with no information about themselves or the world of work, and spending thousands of dollars floundering. She suggests it’s an important discipline to routinely ask yourself: Does what I am doing really play into what I’m best at and want to do – or am I being side-tracked by the appeal of the money or the status of the promotion?”

I didn’t pick this career out of a hat!

P.B. found his path as a Technical Writer after 15 years in the workforce, feeling underemployed and lacking direction.

“I take every opportunity I get to emphasize that I didn’t pick this career “out of a hat”, that I did my research and picked it because it fits who I am on a multitude of levels. Through one-on-one counseling and a number of self-assessment exercises, my aptitudes and skills were matched against career types by priority. This gave me the guidance I needed to research retraining options. I am now training towards a new career and have confidence that my chosen career fits who I am….It’s a whole different world, and I feel optimistic about the future.”
