Many of our members join us after experiencing something in their professional past they find hard to talk about (i.e. getting fired, being laid-off, extended unemployment, etc.). These kinds of experiences lead to what we call a “crisis of confidence” – and it impacts your ability to get hired and promoted. We work directly with members to help them get comfortable talking about their past in a way that doesn’t make them feel nervous or ashamed. We teach them how to address these elements on their resume and in interviews so that they can present themselves as the true talent they are. Ironically, soon after our members master this element of their career story – they seem to land jobs. Coincidence? Not at all! Learning to speak about the good and bad of your past is vital to career success. Why? Because nobody’s perfect – hiring managers included!
