Alison_Cardy.png

Imagine getting up on a Monday morning and being excited and inspired about the day ahead!

It’s possible to feel on track with your career, and there are plenty of amazing career opportunities out there.

This live training will give you an understanding of the 5 key practices that you need to create career opportunities.

Join expert career coach Alison Cardy on this free live training and you’ll discover:

-Why you should totally ignore the folks who say things like “most people don’t like their work.” and “you should be happy to have your job.” (things that absolutely make you feel like the immediate answer is the cookie tin).
-Why it absolutely does not matter if the career help you got before didn’t help at all.
-Why a new resume is NOT the answer (and what is).
-The biggest mistake you might be making when you jump enthusiastically into your job search. (though you gotta love that puppy dog enthusiasm).

This is your chance to take the first step to making this the year when you finally get your career locked into place.

Grab your spot on this free live training!
