I’m a Millennials Career Coach, and one of my gifts is proximity to young, idealistic people that say “I want to change the world,” and mean it. When I joined the OneLifeTools team I got another gift - the chance to work closely with two thought leaders, Mark Franklin and Rich Feller. During my epic interview, Rich shared this same resolution with me: “I want to build a legacy and make the world better,” and believe me, he means it.
Sounds awesome right? Where do we sign up? As helping professionals, we aim to do just that: make the world better for our clients by helping them navigate a lifetime of transitions.
But there’s a gap. In a recent nationwide survey conducted by the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC), 50% of Canadians reported that they wish they had accessed career services, but they didn’t. One big reason they chose not to is that they are simply unaware of what’s available - from how to assess the quality of services and how much they cost to what’s involved.
