As one of the younger employees in my workplace, I can sometimes feel invisible. I would apply for internal positions to further my career, and would be repeatedly told that I "wasn't quite ready". What wasn't forthcoming though, was any support to help me to "be ready", so I turned to Kerry Thompson.
Rather than launching into how to write CVs and how to perform in interviews, we started by looking at me. We looked at techniques I could practice in order to become more visible; and no, it didn't involve having to wear bright clothes!
The sessions we have together are informal and as frequent as I need. I'm not limited to a fixed number of sessions, and I can even pop her a WhatsApp if I have a quick question or an important update to share.
I have now secured a new secondment within my company, which I'm really enjoying. My Managers have noticed the positive change in me and my confidence, and I no longer feel invisible.
Kerry has been a great support to me in my new role. I'm able to sense-check situations with her, and we work together on solutions to the challenges I'm facing. I couldn't have done any of this without Kerry.
