You're a STEM professional.

You’ve been working in STEM whether

  • in academia
  • in industry
  • or elsewhere

You always thought this would be your dream job… but it’s really not.

Instead of following your curiosity -> you’re chasing funds.

Instead of contributing to areas that really interest you -> you’re working long hours to meet the company's business goals.

You know it’s time to make a move but to where?!

You spent year getting your degrees because you wanted a career that’s:

  • exciting
  • where you can use your brain
  • have an impact and be appreciated

A career that makes you feel good and supports your lifestyle. 

You represent a college, company or organization.

You've been working with STEM students, graduates and professionals.

You know that STEM job market is ultra-competitive despite positive trends so graduates and professionals demand support in career development and planning.

They need support in professional development to make a bigger impact.

Also, alumni & staff career success impacts funding opportunities.

Only when positive it maintains reputation of the universities and the institution itself. 

You know that providing career guidance is important but how can you do it with limited resources?

You can either invest in:

- development of staff and faculty or

- Let me support you by providing bespoke career and competence-building workshops.

She helped me not only to realise what I can do to achieve my goals but also to do it. After 6 months, I can say that I feel more confident as well as grateful to have taken a part in her programme.
