Sometimes it's hard to put your finger on it: the reason why your life keeps going in circles and doesn't ever seem to end up in the right direction. Meet Ann DeWolf, a 51-year-old divorcee who was stuck in the humdrums of administrative work for more than six years. Wishing to go back to her love of sales, the fear of failure kept her from pursuing her dream.
Seeking guidance in her career change, Ann came to Fresh Start, and what she learned truly changed her life.
Not only did Fresh Start give her the necessary tools and knowledge but a newfound perspective on how to find the right career for her. The career courses helped her create a vision board and strategies to achieve each one of her goals. They taught her interview techniques, how to highlight transferable skills and empowered her to apply for positions she may never have considered before. In addition, through Fresh Start, Ann was able to build a portfolio that gave her an edge in interviews and ultimately helped her land a dream sales job.
Now a residential resale representative for the #1 security company in America, Ann has an exciting career that challenges and excites her every day. And after each workday is over, Ann takes a moment to reflect on her vision board, posted prominently on her wall. In less than a year, she's managed to buy the car she's always wanted, bring home the dog she's always dreamed of and kick her longtime smoking habit.
