I have learned a lot with Lisa’s, techniques.
I most enjoyed the opportunity to communicate career perception to career adviser and make improvements on job application and interview skills. University needs to advertise this program more so more people know about it, because I only so lucky that accidently found out about this program.

Firstly, I would like to emphasize that the quality of this program is spectacular. Trainer Lisa O’Brien is expert of her field and she can add precious skills and motivate to participants. During the program I enjoyed mostly about talking my professions and trainer helped me to think of which profession fit my abilities.
The most valuable skill that I learned in the program is Lisa said me that, if you want to change something you need to think with your intellect.
I learned that, career planning is a way of making the best use of your current situation and foreseeable opportunities. Given that unpredictable events and changes can occur over time, view your plan as a guide and allow space for adjustments and changes to your approach. Finally, I would like to say that, now my self-confidence is higher than before the program.
The program was very informative and was helpful in the professional development as well, as the coach encourages on building a personal brand. It was detail oriented and assisted me to prepare for various interviews and also helped me boost up my confidence. The program also focused on the importance of having a LinkedIn profile and the ways to promote our profile was also discussed. It facilitated my communication skills as well.
