Making a Career Change Based on Strengths

Thais' Story

“Recognizing my own skills, and getting feedback from the MovingWorlds team and my peers helped me confidently choose a direction that wasn’t in the realm of possibility before. I came out of the Fellowship believing that I could be good at project management, and that I did have something unique to add. The training and coaching then helped me emphasize that more in my CV and in an interview”

This self-reflection, plus the networking and educational opportunities afforded to me by this program, have given me the clarity I was seeking.”
