The program offers four group sessions plus one individual coaching session; classes aimed at those looking for a career change, a job promotion, or a way to reinvent their working life.

 A new program entitled “MyCoach” will be held for metro Detroiters looking for a career change but needing guidance on the big decision is being offered by Gesher Human Services  (29699 Southfield Road, Southfield MI 48076) one of the largest local human service agencies.

The new program

will be held in person from 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 8, Nov. 10, Nov. 15, and Nov. 17. Participants will also be offered an individual coaching session with an experienced career counselor. MyCoach has a $100 class fee, although financial hardship will not be a barrier to taking part in the program.

“We know that there are many people who feel stuck in their job, who want to reinvent their working life, but just don’t know how to make that career change because they think there are too many obstacles, including the possibility of an economic recession,” said Sherrie James, Career Counselor at Gesher Human Service.

We are here to tell you that there is no need to settle and that through career counseling tools and coaching you can build confidence, eventually finding a job that you love.”

The program offers:

·       Meaningful identification of skills

·       Your personal coach

·       Career inventory

·       Opportunity for professional growth

·       Awareness of market trends

·       Confidence building

· High-powered job search tools

James added that the program would also be useful to employees who are frustrated because they have not had a promotion in years. “Our career counselors can help identify reasons why that promotion has been stalled, highlight skills you could need to develop, and help you make that leap to the job that you deserve,” she explained.

To register for “MyCoach”, contact Sherrie James at sjames@geshermi.org or call 248.233.4472
