"Within three months, I had found the perfect job online marketing for a golf company. It taps into skills I have already, requires me to learn skills which I really want to have in the future and relates to what I do in my spare time". It's just the kind of job I wouldn't have applied for previously because I thought the competition was too fierce. Iwould never have got the job I wanted without the help of Personal Career Management"
Rory Anderson, Graduate
"I feel they had a genuine interest in the person, an eagerness to see you succeed coupled with a process that worked makes them trustworthy leaders in career transformation".
Eimear D'Arcy, Senior HR Manager
"By turning to Personal Career Management I have jumped at least two steps on my chosen career path. I'd probably have become a consultant without them but it would have taken a long, long time. I would recommend Personal Career Management to friends and colleagues. Everybody spends a lot of time and money on investments, houses and cars...but very few people spend money or invest time on structuring their career and what they want to be doing. To me it has been money and time very well invested - particularly having been in a career which I was not finding very fulfilling".
Diarmid Lee, Former lawyer now a Business Consultant
"Personal Career Management have a challenging and structured process designed to get you into the right role for your future. My coach was a great balance of support and push back to make sure I thought deeply and widely enough about the opportunities now available to me. Armed with a rewritten cv that really was "me" I got through the system and in front of the right people. I landed a great role and wholeheartedly recommend Personal Career Management to all".
Gillian White, Head of Learning & Development
"I'd got stuck in a non-productive rut with job applications and interviews - Personal Career Management's professional and sympathetic approach faciltated a 'reset' and showed me how to 'play the game' to win. I've successfully managed to move out of a collapsing industry into a growing industry with lots of opportunities. I now have a career plan and understand what I need to do to maximise my potential. Their service offers much more than just finding jobs to apply for - we covered interview skills and in particular those difficult to answer questions. In comparison with some of the other services you see advertised Personal Career Management is also very good value. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who wants to move from having a series of jobs to having a career."
John Pearce, IT Architect
"I was unhappy at work and it filtered through from the office into my home life. I felt comfortable right from the start in working with Personal Career Management. My coach helped me process what was happening at work and gave the practical support and advice I needed to move from what was a stressful situation. I am now working in a new role that I enjoy and I feel so much happier and less stressed. I feel much more in control and confident about the future. Working with Personal Career Management helped me look objectively at myself, gave me a future plan - and quite simply I would never have come this far without them".
Jane Harris, Events Manager
"I undertook a programme with Personal Career Management, at the time when I desperately needed to take stock and consider what I wanted to do with my career. I found the course took me gently down a path of self realisation of what was important to me, what my skills are, what I enjoy and dislike. I was able to not only determine what I wanted to do next in my working life but was able to develop a strategy to make this happen. The process enabled me to jump to a new confidence level. I am pleased to say that I was able to immediately obtain a new position local to me, in a role that I find really rewarding and for an improved remuneration package. In fact, Personal Career Management gave me the confidence to ask for and receive an increased remuneration package. I owe them an enormous debt and can't thank them enough, for all the support and advice they gave me."
Andrew Kordecki, Financial Controller
"After 12 years in the same organisation I had no idea what my next step should be and after toying with opening a bar abroad, or finding a new role in a completely different industry I eventually called Personal Career Management. They helped me flush out my ideas and identify that what I really wanted to do was start my own business. It was an opportunity that was right under my nose but I had missed it. Personal Career Management has been a great investment, their advice and resources have been invaluable and their help has saved me a huge amount of time. A year later, I am director of my own business, which I find infinitely more rewarding than my previous role. The business is growing from strength to strength and financially it has also been very successful. I will be taking on new employees over the coming months and really feel that there is an exciting future."
Trevor Cullen, Managing Director
"Following voluntary redundancy, I chose Personal Career Management as my outplacement company. They helped me achieve greater clarity, confidence and focus. As a result, I received a number of job offers but chose a role that has a Board Director career path, stock holding potential and a real opportunity to contribute to the direction and success of the company. I have recommended Personal Career Management to others, many times."
Peter Miller, Sales Director
After 25 years of working for the same company, finding a new job was never going to be easy. I was aware that I could be quite negative and this was not helping. I wanted a sounding board to help me evaluate my options and put in place some form of process and discipline to move my career forward. Personal Career Management helped me approach the market with renewed confidence. I found the process cathartic. They helped reinforce my key skills and assets which really helped me believe in myself much more and this undoubtedly made a difference with employers. I have been able to obtain some well-paid contracting roles which are perfect for me!
Malcolm Hall, Retail Services Manager
"Personal Career Management provided us with a very high level of expertise; an understanding of the various issues associated with the individual aspects of redundancy, professionalism in their approach and undertook the administrative aspects themselves. We used a two pronged approach with them which included an 'open' workshop looking at the external marketplace and an overview of CV writing and interviews, coupled with a one to one meeting afterwards to address individual concerns and issues. The feedback on these sessions was highly positive and uplifting which is to their credit in such difficult circumstances. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Personal Career Management to anyone."
Alison Heaney, HR Director, Travelex Currency Services
