Why did you become a career coach?
I became a career coach because I enjoy helping people find their voice and to explore the many different paths in the world today to live a meaningful life of purpose.
What is your favorite part of being a career coach?
My favorite part of being a career coach is listening to and becoming part of helping students achieve their dreams right now… today. The world around us is already filled with plenty of messages of “that is not realistic” or “no that dream can’t become a career since it is not very practical.” I love investing time with students busting up those unhealthy messages to figure out ways to build upon our dreams.
Why should students come in for career coaching?
Other than the fact that I am a super fun guy that most students find pretty easy to talk with, you should come in for a career coaching appointment because YOU are important. You owe it to yourself to have somebody on your team to help you navigate this overwhelming world of careers. A good coach is there to guide you on your terms and timeline. There’s a whole lot of career coaching love going on at the CDC. Come join in!
