I am a career coach within a large consulting company. My role is to help people figure out what they most enjoy and what options they have to do more of that. I enjoy listening to people, learning from them, asking questions to prompt new ideas, and giving advice and guidance when I can. I view my role as a matchmaker, making connections between people and opportunities. It's incredibly gratifying to see people succeed in their new roles, and help supervisors get the resources they need!

Most jobs are built upon the exchange of value. You give something and you get something in return.

I'm a people manager and in exchange for my service, I get money and job satisfaction. If you look at Maslow's hierarchy of needs, these two items take care of my physiological, safety and belonging needs. That's perfectly fine for a job, but a career, it doesn't make.

A good career opens doors to the next two steps of esteem and self-actualisation. That's what my career has brought to me - meeting extremely intelligent people, hearing their thoughts, learning much more than I could have ever hoped for, the satisfaction of leading something greater than yourself, the collaboration, achieving greater outcomes than I could have done on my own and a sense of accomplishing something for society.

Over the years, I've learnt that my career is not something that I planned to the n'th degree but rather it emerged out of the things I loved doing and want to do more of each day. I go to work every day and do what I love. On the day I stop doing what I love, I look for something else that I would love to do daily and the fact that I don't see "work" as a chore everyday is what I like about my career.

I work as a Recruiter and I enjoy screening, interviewing people and finding talent for my amazing organisation.
I like delivering candidates good news, helping them to navigate the recruitment process and helping my managers to find the best person for the role. I like helping people find jobs in an organisation that helps teams unleash their potential.

I assume you ask me about my own professional career. I love being able to help others figure out what to do with their lives. I love finding resources that are helpful to them. I like to inspire other people to give their full effort. That is what I work for.

Hi Silvia - I am a pharmacist. What I love about my career is the fact that I have the ability to be engaged in many areas of healthcare. For example - I started my career as a retail pharmacist. Then, I transitioned in long term care where we focused on the elderly and servicing the nursing homes. Now, I am working for the insurance side of the healthcare. It's fantastic and challenging!

I work in technology, which is always changing, so I’m always learning something new. I also get to share what I’ve learned with others (whether I’m educating a customer about how a technology works, or how it will help them; to mentoring others to help them better do their job). Those are two of my favorite things — learning, and sharing/teaching.
