Metro Detroiters looking to reinvent their working lives at the start of this year or look for a higher-paying job to combat inflation expenses, whether by a complete career change or a job promotion, can join a life-changing career coaching program which begins Feb. 14.

The program “MyCoach”

will be offered by Gesher Human Services, one of the largest human service agencies in metro Detroit and will be held in-person at the nonprofit agency’s headquarters (29699 Southfield Road, Southfield, MI 48076) on Feb. 14, 16, 21 and 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The program includes four masterclass group sessions, plus an individual coaching session for participants. While there is a $75 fee for the program, scholarships are also available. According to job search advice websites, the first months of the year are often believed to be the best time to look for a new job, when hiring managers have new budgets, the majority of workers have returned from vacation, and the hiring backlog at many companies has restarted.

“MyCoach” will provide attendees

with high-powered job search tools as well as help participants identify their strengths and be aware of market trends.

“For anyone who made that New Year’s Resolution to change their job or look into a new career, but isn’t confident about taking the next step, our program offers practical advice and support from professional career experts to take that leap successfully,” said Gesher Human Services’ Career Counselor Sherrie James.

She pointed out that inflation has made many people reassess whether their incomes are adequate. “If you have tried to get a raise from your current employer and it is just not happening, we are here to assess your skills and help you to consider other job opportunities which come with a higher salary. There is no need to settle, and we know our program can be life-changing for individuals and their families,” said James.

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

To register for “MyCoach”, contact Sherrie James at or call 248.233.4472. Individual career and job search advice is also available to metro Detroiters at no cost; email or call 248.233.4245.
