Jeanet was encouraging and honest and helped me strategically work through my skills and interests and through that I found the best new fit. In 5-months I went from having my life totally turned upside down, now being enrolled into a new program to upgrade my skills. I am excited to pursue my new career path."

"I genuinely enjoyed the process of working with Pat to clarify my goals and learn how to more effectively meet various challenges. We dug deep psychologically, much deeper than I had expected a career coach would go with me, and every step of the way I felt that Pat really got me. This was an exercise in bravery, compassion, and self-reflection in which I felt seen and supported. I recommend Pat as a career coach (or anything coach) without reservation!"

"When I engaged Careers by Design, I wasn’t sure what to expect but Pat immediately put me at ease. She understood where I was in my career and provided great insight into my options. I found the weekly exercises beneficial in helping me define my career goals and form techniques for personal development. By the end of the program I had regained my confidence. I felt better equipped to achieve greater satisfaction in my current work and chart a course for the future. I am so glad to have met and worked with Pat and recommend her and Careers by Design. Engaging them was one the best decisions I’ve made in my career."

"What prompted me to choose Careers by Design was their holistic approach to coaching and the mind & heart integration framework they offer, which for me is critical to achieving sustainable and fulfilling results. I have had the pleasure to work with Pat Parisi on a career transition and she was instrumental in helping me gain more clarity around my strengths and values, which allowed me to define the type of work I wanted to pursue going forward. I felt a great connection with Pat! Our conversations were all online, with me being based in Vancouver-BC and her in Waterloo-ON, which worked extremely with my irregular schedule. With her bright, warm, empathetic and calm demeanour she was able to guide me back to realignment with my purpose when I started to wobble in my decision, and this has made all the difference! Pat has been that illuminating, steady light that you need access to when going through a period of transition, and for that I am forever thankful! I have recently accepted a job offer in a new industry that I am extremely excited about and I am truly grateful for Pat's support along the way. I would definitely recommend Pat and Careers by Design to anyone looking for meaningful career coaching, despite your location!"

"Working with Pat Parisi at Careers by Design helped me to reflect on what is actually important to me, what my core values are, and what my dream job would be about. I never was that sociable, but somehow by the end of our sessions I started to connect to other professionals and (and that's something previously unthinkable) ask for their help and advice. I landed my new job just before our sessions were over, and it still surprises me how quickly it happened and how great my new role is. So yes, the whole experience was totally worth it and I would recommend it to other people who are not sure what to do with their career next."

"I was very hesitant and very skeptical coming into my coaching sessions with Careers By Design. Almost immediately, I was so impressed by how my coach, Pat, pivoted my perspective on choosing the right career path for me. We dissected my values, my professional/academic past and even practiced some stress relief techniques that are truly effective. After my 4 sessions I found a job that I'm really enjoying so far."

She was consistently engaged, patient and encouraging as we explored my skills and interests. She offered wonderful advice throughout the process and recommended some essential next steps. Together we built an incredible strength statement which I can draw from and a solid strategy for my resume/cover letters/interviews that will be invaluable in the coming months. I can't say enough good things about her kind and insightful approach. Thank you!"

Focusing on WHO you are before you determine your next career move is at the core of Linda Faucheux’s work in contemplative career counseling. Her compassionate guidance provides deep (powerful) mindfulness techniques that connects head to heart and the awareness that leads to solution-focused outcomes. I highly recommend Linda. She will exceed your expectations."
