Pace University had its annual Fall Mini Career Coaching night on Wednesday sponsored by Dr. Barry Miller, Manager Alumni Career Programs and Services. SGES was invited to attend as a professional coaching and executive search firm. During the evening, Susan found she was giving the most advice to people who were employed but were looking to transition into another field. The one assumption that they all were making was that they were at a disadvantage because they didn’t have much, if any, experience in the industry they were considering. Their attitude of fear and doubt dissipated into an alternative mindset of confidence and determination after speaking with Susan from SGES for a few minutes. “The best part of the evening was watching faces move from apprehension into smiles. Repositioning their thought process and assumptions were what these people needed and weren’t receiving from friends, colleagues or other coaches. It helps when I can talk from my own experience: having changed fields a couple of times and also having executed searches in a wide variety of industries.” It was a very satisfying experience for Susan to be able to give back to the university where she attended the graduate program in business and received her MBA. We hope that the people Susan met will be able to reinvigorate their job searches with a positive spin which will be a great push toward them achieving their desired results. We welcome feedback from Pace Alums.
