A few years ago when I started seriously thinking about switching careers, I felt all the feelings; happy, scared, excited, unsure, guilty...the list goes on.
The main thing that kept replaying in my mind and the main reason that stopped me from quitting was this...
“Am I going to have to start over?”
I started doing the work of Reflecting on my experience and when I realized I had the transferrable skills to support me with my next career move, I began to feel more at ease. I felt confident in my experience, with my abilities and the rest is history.
If you’re feeling like this and you don’t know where to begin, I’ve got ya!

I'm incredibly passionate about supporting people to walk into their job interviews with confidence. With 10+ years experience leading people and a HR designation, I have heard and seen it all when it comes to interviews.
I'm here to share my interviewing tips, guidance and perspective on prepping for your next job interview.
When I initially told my manager I wanted to apply, she shared I wasn’t quite qualified for the role. Weeks went by when she unexpectedly called. I remember taking the phone call in a parking lot of a local fitness studio.
While sitting on the curb, she share I should do it; apply for the role and see what happens.
What I suspect had happened is that there weren’t as many applicants applying for the position as they had hoped and my manager saw it as an opportunity for me to throw my name in the hat.
So I did it, I applied.
I was setup with 4 rounds of interviews. The first one beginning with my manager and a partner I had worked with regularly.
At the end of the first round, I asked for feedback. “In your opinion, what is stopping me from getting this job?”
To be honest, I actually can’t remember what they shared, but I do remember my reaction, which was tears.
I held it together receiving the feedback, hung up the phone and then instantaneously balled.
It was only the first interview and I felt like I had already failed. I couldn’t help but think they were right; I wasn’t ready for this role.
It was the first true job interview where I REALLY wanted the position.
