Starting a career with depression…
So how about starting a career with depression? Or when you live with a condition like anxiety, autism and/or AD/HD. While you were at school, you had access to your university career services office. But no classes focused on your job hunt with depression. Just like career services told you, you did your online resume and polished it. You deleted all of “those” pictures from Insta and your Snap doesn’t stay around (you wild than’!) After filling out a LinkedIn profile, you began connecting. You may have even gotten some great interviews. And you went to career fairs when employers were on campus.
You waited. But no one called you back to offer you the job you wanted. Then the worry started about your job hunt. Just to make ends meet, you may have taken one (or more) part-time gigs. If you did find a job, it may just be “so, so”. You’re still struggling to find that “just right” professional job. When you are ready to try something more, we can talk on the phone to explore your options.
After graduation, you thought a job hunt with a disability would be easier. You may have not been able to work much while going to school. It took all of your energy just to go to class and study. Or your part-time college job was not in your field. You may just need some support while you hunt.
Let’s mark out a path to get you started. Between sessions, you can use the great self-paced coaching resources to help you shine. We can meet periodically to review your progress. You can improve your chances of landing the job you want. You would learn how to “self accommodate” so you can maintain your independence.
You Health and Your Career
If you have a health-related condition, you are trying to figure out how to balance work and health. Balancing working full-time in a demanding job with your health is exhausting.

Many things including your condition may impact your choices. We start out by giving you a safe work space right here in the Houston Heights while you make career decisions. Why don’t we chat to see if there is a fit?
