What impressed me greatly: I felt that I was treated as a person, not as an object to be processed and pushed out of the door to make way for the next client.
Until recently, I was working as a software professional in a commercial environment. My specialism was developing traditional applications suitable for running on IBM mainframes. As a result of companies sending a progressively increasing proportion of this type of work to low wage economies to save money, I was made redundant in the autumn of 2008 with a nearly obsolete skill set. My future looked bleak: there was fierce competition for work related to my skill set, and for the vast majority of software development jobs, companies demanded experience of technical skills which I did not have.
I needed careers advice of the highest possible quality to show me the way forward. A friend recommended the Change Key Partnership, affirming that the quality of service and customer care was well worth the price. After some deliberation, I felt that hiring the services of the Change Key Partnership would be an effective means of finding the way out of the predicament which I was in.
With their help, it became apparent that I would do well to train and seek work as a web designer or web developer. Which much careful planning and their encouragement, I applied to study for a Masters in Web Development at Edge Hill University and was accepted for the course. I am here now, bringing to the end of what is a very challenging academic year. I am acquiring new skills in the art of web site design and development which will render me much more marketable than when I was made redundant.
What impresses me greatly is the personalised service which is offered by the Change Key Partnership. I felt that I was treated as a person, not as an object to be processed and pushed out of the door to make way for the next client. A ‘one size fits all' approach of treating every client alike does not apply here! Furthermore, this Partnership is still interested in the progress which I am making towards obtaining my Masters, and as a result of this, obtaining employment.
I look forward to continuing my relationship with this Partnership until well into my new employment and beyond.
A visit to ChangeKey is a sure-fire and extremely cost effective way of focusing your skills and realising your dreams.
Steve and Berta who had worked in the IT sector approached Changekey with the aim of identifying their career passion.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeff as an Executive Coach and, in fact, have recommended him to members of my own family.
Lyn, can I say...what an amazing job you do. I don't know exactly what you saw in me but your intuition was certainly right...I am an estate agent!
I now feel I can confidently manage. I will also get paid what I deserve, and have some great career opportunities in front of me...
I often think back to our sessions and am grateful for the time you spent discussing things and challenging me. It's been as helpful outside of work as in.
When I was made redundant, I was referred to Lyn and Jeff at the 'ChangeKey Partnership'. From the very beginning. I was immediately made to feel at ease.
