Constructive Criticism and Encouragement

“The program was helpful. A lot of the information I already knew but it forced me to apply it systematically. There was also some level of information I didn’t know. It was nice to have a person there to bounce questions off of and receive both constructive criticism and encouragement.”

So Glad I Had Gone!

I really wasn't going to attend the classes, I am very shy and hate meeting new people and being out of my comfort zones, but before the first session ended, I was so glad I had gone! I am very thankful TDW understood the difficulty enough to see the need and supported it. I have great admiration for the team at Career Development, for all you do and how you do what you do. I will miss each of you dearly, and appreciate you greatly, thank you for helping me stand and run again!

Finding Our Way Forward

I wanted to thank you all for your efforts to help me and others who loose their job through the situation, learning more about ourselves and finding our way forward.
I had thought that my resume was quite alright. Going through the meetings with you and your handbook showed me how important it is to really think about the past, accomplishments, strengths but also weaknesses and to focus on the job you really want by adapting the information provided.

Instrumental in My Successful Job Search

“I just wanted to thank each of you, as you all were instrumental in my successful job search.  Travis and Rick, the outplacement course was phenomenal!  I learned things that I didn’t know I needed to know, and once implemented, gave me more confidence in my job search.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for me during this difficult time.  You all have been a true blessing to me, and I’m grateful I got to know each of you.”

You Were Angels Carrying Me

Debra, I want to thank you and the entire team at Career Development for all you do!  I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you holding my hand through what was one of the most difficult experiences I've endured (being laid off from a place that had been my home and family for so long and having to reposition myself for a new job), I truly could not have done so well so quickly on my own.  I could probably say sincerely that it would not have even happened without you! Thank you for the book lessons, but mostly for helping me find my confidence, to build a better resume, and to negotiate (I got almost $4.00 an hour more than his range), to be patient waiting for that perfect fit, to heal and find positive in a bleak event!   Rick's articles on LinkedIn were wonderful and full of wisdom and encouragement for me!  You were angels carrying me "lest" I "dashed" my "foot upon a stone". (Psalms 91:12).

I Have Learned So Much

Thank you Travis for your kind words and support of your company!  I was very skeptical and pretty sure this was going to be a time waster, but I was completely wrong!  I have learned so much in just the two sessions already!  I appreciate your time, commitment and heart to help people like me get through a difficult event, and not only point us in the right direction but guide us along our new journey!  Both Debra and Jane have been amazing with information, listening and support! My thanks to you and your team!

I had no idea

I had no idea how things have changed in the job market. Trying to navigate that and deal with the disappointment of a layoff was a bit overwhelming. Career Partners and their consultants helped me not only understand all of the changes and build strategies, but also rebuild my confidence. The services were more than practical, they were also psychological.

Regained Confidence

The team at career development went above and beyond their roles. They were informative and knowledgeable; very helpful, but they were also understanding supportive and respectful not only to my (our) circumstances and situation, but my (our) former employer as well! I learned a lot about digging deep and finding me through all the noise, and how to connect with others for networking. I learned how to create a better resume and through going to the classes I regained confidence, and my positive attitude. It was a huge help to attend this with colleagues I already had connections with too. These people really do care and understand. They want to help those who have had their feet knocked out from under them, to regain their balance and get back to running!
