About Loken Careers
During college, I heard a wise piece of advice: “If you’re doing something you truly enjoy, it shouldn’t feel much like work.” Loken Careers works with clients to match their passions and values with a realistic professional position. We help clients gain confidence and insight into their passions, inspire them to dream, and most importantly, support and encourage them to succeed!
Loken Careers works with clients who are looking to find a new job/career path and allows them to make informed decisions about their professional development. If you are interested in making a positive difference in the world, in the nonprofit sector, thinking about starting your own business, or open to exploring a social good career please contact us to learn more about my career coaching services and style.
Being unemployed or looking for a new job while currently employed is very stressful. Many people feel anxious, scared and vulnerable during the job search process; however, these emotions are exactly what will get in your way. Securing your dream job requires you to put your best self forward to discover your passion, search for jobs and successfully interview.
In addition to demystifying the job searching and application processes, we work hard to support clients and allow them to make informed decisions about their career development path. This includes the tools needed to get there: résumés, cover letters, job searching tips, effective networking, interview preparation, and salary negotiation.
