YOUR CAREER QUEST  

A ROADMAP AND A GUIDE FOR YOUR
CAREER QUEST

 

If you are on a quest to find work that is more meaningful, purposeful, and engaging, Project Career Quest is the book for you. If you lost your job, you're looking for a job for the first time and totally lost in the process, or you are about to lose your mind and know it's time for a new job, what you need is a roadmap and a guide to help you on your journey. There are new opportunities waiting for you if you know where to look and how to approach the job market. I will guide you through the job search process, providing you the information, resources, tools, and strategies you need for a successful transition and/or transformation. I will help you navigate your journey to New Opportunities Waiting. 


Project Career Quest includes all aspects of the career quest process including:

  • Processing the emotional aspects of career transition.

  • Discovering your passion, your purpose, who you were created to be, your "calling," your WHY!

  • How to approach the job search process and structure your journey for success.

  • Getting on the "radar screen" and communicating your accomplishments and value to an employer.

  • Interviewing skills, questions, and strategies for closing the deal.

  • Dealing with the first 90 Days and beyond; your on-going professional development.

"The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you discover why."  ~Mark Twain

Li-Chen Chin

"Kerry's book, Project Career Quest, breaks down the logistical steps of the job search process. It also address the emotional ups and downs that many job seekers will experience. It is relevant for both entry-level and seasoned professionals. It will motivate and empower job seekers. As an employer, I also found insightful the discussion regarding best practices in the hiring process."

Rick Gardner

"I have known and worked with Kerry for over seven years. We were introduced at a job seeker's program when Kerry presented about breaking down the job search into a project management framework.

Since that time, Kerry has become a friend, mentor, and coach for me and my business, Binky and Bell. One of the highlights of my experience with her was a study group of the book “Unhackable." During this program, I was able to clarify and focus my passion to set long term goals and objectives. Kerry has helped me become an action-oriented, focused, unstoppable force with daily habits that keep me moving forward."

~Rick Gardner

With her vast knowledge, of project management and leadership, she provides useful tools, sound advice, and easily understood methodologies for success."
