“When I met Brian, I could not see a future. I had some education and some relevant experience, but couldn’t see a way for it to all come together. With his ability to ask questions and listen in a non-judgementalway, and to help me use that information to get to know myself better, I can now see a future. I was able to formulate a plan and a goal, and reached that goal by the time we completed our scheduled time together; I truly believe I have the best career choice for me, right now. I am clear on what my future looks like and how I am going to get there; learning what I want and need from my work environment in both a tangible and non tangible sense has been invaluable. I could not be more grateful – thank you! ”
“Brian demonstrated an understanding of who I am. He provided me with the tools through which I was able to discover my values, interests, personality type, desires, skills and aptitudes. He then showed me how to use this information to set life and career goals. The services offered by Career Vitality Services are extremely valuable and have directly impacted my ability to move forward in a healthy manner.”
“Just two interview training sessions helped me to understand what to expect on the interview and feel more confident because I was prepared. And it worked!” I. Vanichkina
“Brian was very helpful in guiding me to refine my career goals after finishing my undergraduate degree. He had a good balance of leading me along a path to find new answers and insight into myself, without telling me what to do or not giving enough direction. I learned a lot about what is important to me in my career choices, and I feel more confident about choosing a direction to go. And, perhaps most importantly, Brian helped me come to terms with the fact that I might end up trying many different directions over the course of my life – that’s just part of the journey!”
“I really value the guidance you offered! The session was great fun and very informative.”
” I contacted Brian when I had reached the breaking point with my job. I felt underappreciated and undervalued. Much like a cog in a machine and I knew it was time for a career change. I was not too sure where to go for coaching, but I contacted Brian and I heard back from him immediately. Brian and I met for an initial consultation. I immediately felt understood and knew i would enjoy working with Brian. The process began at the beginning for me as I had no idea what career path to take. After completing some self -assessments, career exploration exercises and follow up coaching meetings with Brian, I decided to take the plunge and go back to school. After I knew what direction I wanted to take, I focused on trying to find another job. At this point, Brian was a great help in teaching me how to tailor my resume and cover letter to the position I am applying for. I would highly recommend Brian as his genuine and sincere approach is very apparent when you work with him.”
“Brian has been really helpful in the preparation of my medical residency interviews. It is no doubt that his help was instrumental in helping me place a spot in residency in the United States. His preparation includes breaking down the interview process and explaining what interviewers expect. This has definitely helped clarify and hone my approach in interveiws. Thank you Brian!”
