CVs & Interviews

Experiencing frustration at work due to a misalignment with your passion, key competencies, or personal values is a common challenge. This mismatch can affect both your happiness and the outcomes you achieve. While it would be ideal for everyone to discover their true calling early in life and consistently find joy in their work, the reality is often different.

Many professionals undergo career changes, with some individuals transitioning up to three times in their lifetimes and the concept of lifelong careers is no longer universally applicable. Career Mapping will help you identify your next move and get a placement in a job and career that is best suited for you and that you will truly love.
