Watching the devastating impact of COVID-19 in India is breaking my heart. That is why in the month of May 2021, I will be offering donation-based coaching with 100% of funds going to Canadian Red Cross’s India COVID-19 Response Appeal. Money raised will enable the Red Cross to support COVID-19 preparedness, response, and recovery activities in India.
What I’m offering
I will be offering up to six 1-hour private career coaching (or relocation coaching) sessions on a donation basis. My usual sliding scale is $50-120 but all donation amounts will be accepted. The times for these sessions will be on Saturdays or Sundays. Please fill out this form if you are interested in learning more.
What is coaching good for?
I’ve been coaching for 8 years now and my specialty is supporting people who are moving and/or changing jobs. Sample topics include:
- Figuring out whether to make a move in your career or living situation
- Re-establishing your career and sense of home after relocating
- Building confidence to pursue your career and life goals
I have also supported over 100 newcomer women in building their careers in BC’s tech sector so I’m happy to provide practical guidance on resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn, interviews, and other aspects of the job search. When you fill out the interest form, you can tell me more about what support you’re seeking.
Why I’m supporting India’s COVID response
My last international trip before the pandemic was to India. That trip was 15 years in the making, and when I finally went, I met wonderfully kind people, immersed in rich cultural history, soaked up beautiful rural landscapes, and devoured mouth-watering food. I had travelled there alone and toured with a small group. It was a trip that filled me up with joy and reminded me of all that life had to offer. When I came back, I made a big career move to be in greater alignment with my values and interests.
Since India had given me so much, I want to give back.
We raised $300! 🎉 The funds have been donated to assist those impacted by COVID-19 in India so they can access medical care and resources to support long term recovery efforts. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this fundraiser!
In Canada, we are starting to open up thanks to a smooth rollout of vaccinations. However, it’s not as smooth of a process for many parts of the world. Please continue to be kind in your home community and consider spreading the love abroad as well.
