Dear UTech Jamaica Alumni

  • Would it help to boost your confidence, if you were sure you had a well crafted, value adding resume and/or LinkedIn Profile, which clearly and impressively answers the No. 1 question in a recruiter’s mind “What value will this candidate add to my organization?”
  • Would you feel more hopeful if you had someone to help you develop a job search or career management strategy so you could get on with your life…with better fit between who you are and what you do, plus better compensation-focus-joy-peace?
  • Would it mean a lot to you to be able to handle this…wait…period [wait to find a job, or wait to find a better job] without feeling fearful, angry, anxious and uncertain?

RE: Invitation to Join the Mentorship Programme, UTech Jamaica AY 2019/20

Dear  Alumni and Friends of UTech, Jamaica,

Can you remember a time when you felt lonely, confused, completely overwhelmed?

Can you remember a time when you were at a crossroads, needing to make a critical do-or-die decision, but didn’t have the experience or information you needed, or the confidence to just-make-the-decision and move on with your life powerfully?

Can you remember a time when you just needed someone that you knew for sure was in your corner? Someone who had time for you…to listen, to understand, to encourage…to give you room to explore and fail without judgment, as well as to celebrate with you when you got it right?

At those times, I hope you had someone who offered you a safe space and support to work through these challenging life experiences, and be better, stronger, and wiser for it. (more…)
