Thank you for the advice and encouragement you've given me.
Not only did you - literally - hand me the job, you also gave
me the kick and realisation that there was no point sitting
around talking about it, if I wanted to get into international
development, I had to just really try to do it.
Rachel, a successful career changer

I have found your input
enormously helpful, both with regard to my CV and also with
regard to resources and advice for job-hunting. BJ

more to it than just listing all my jobs... thank you. JP
Talking to Kevin has been an eye opening
experience and helped me realise that I was limiting my
potential of getting great jobs with my current CV". EL - Kenya.
First, Kevin was able to clarify for me that my
career change goals are realistic and achievable. Such objective
information is invaluable when trying to determine if your hopes
and ideas are grounded in fact and reality. Second, he then got
me to focus in much more greater detail on specifically what I
wanted and how I intended to achieve my goals. And finally, and
probably most importantly, Kevin gave me concrete actions that I
could do that would help me work towards my career change goal.

advice invaluable because it took me out of my comfort zone. KA
Bloody marvellous! So sensible. KB
The changes were very positive, as I had felt
before that I was already "fully loaded", and I have been able
to effectively add further effort by breaking large efforts into
small task. MT
technique was to keep refocusing my attention on stated goals,
and to ensure that these were clearly defined with identifiable
targets and time frames, and that I monitored these time frames
and progress towards the goals. However, this very goal-directed
approach did not stop him from also being sensitive to my
feelings, and to relate to me in a ‘human’ rather than
objectified way. JH - South Africa
