Career coach / TMA talent professional
“Many small steps will take you far!”
“Early on in life I learned that if I wanted to change something, I could make my own choices and take action. I learned to listen to what felt right at the time and to take the necessary steps, however scary I thought that would be.
With great pleasure I now guide other people in learning to make their own choices and to get moving. Many small steps will take them far!
I have had varied jobs, which I always found very satisfying, such as youth work, artist management, theater technician and manager at a large welfare organization. In this last position I dealt with many job applications from the employer’s side, which meant reading letters, making selections and conducting job interviews. This experience comes in very handy now!
When I lost my job in 2011, it was time for me to explore new opportunities. I was fairly stuck due to my own high sensitivity, and I couldn’t do much with it at the time. I have sought and received help in this.
The world was definitely “open” to me, but my next step wasn’t clear to me yet. A career program has helped me a lot in making that choice. The common thread in my career was always guiding people and I ultimately chose to guide people in their career questions. I followed a career coach training course and completed it with pleasure and success. In addition, I noticed that many of the people I supervise are highly sensitive, and this affects how they feel in their work. In order to deal better with the specific career questions of HSP employees, I followed a high sensitivity expert training.
Now I work for Dynamisch Bureau. I really like being part of a team at Dynamisch Bureau, even though I work here independently. Dynamisch Bureau offers me many possibilities for deepening and gathering knowledge, such as peer reviews and theme meetings. A lot is offered to participants in career programs, such as group sessions and Job Connection. This really appeals to me.”
