NEW YORK, NY, April 23, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With vast numbers of people still out of work due to the ongoing pandemic, career coach Terrylynn Smith of Giraffes Consulting is taking extraordinary steps to help fill a need. For people who have become unemployed due to the pandemic, as scheduling permits, Terrylynn is currently offering her career coaching services at no charge.
The move comes at a critical moment for many people facing an uncertain future. Even with the stimulus money from the new administration, millions of families on reduced incomes are still struggling to survive.
Despite the current unemployment numbers, Terrylynn says there are still plenty of good jobs to be had—if you know where to look. "Many job sectors are still hiring right now," she says, "A lot more companies are also opening up work-from-home positions because it's the best way for them to stay in business. The secret is to learn how to find these job openings and how to position yourself competitively once you find them."
A certified life coach with a coaching certificate from Georgetown University, Terrylynn chose to focus on career coaching due to her 30-year history as a human resources executive. Giving back is a core value for her coaching firm, and the bulk of her profits go to charity—so the decision to offer free coaching was a natural choice. "Right now, the people who need career coaching the most are the people who can least afford it," she says.
Among the skills Terrylynn teaches her clients are how to boost self-confidence; how to build a powerful network; how to develop a compelling LinkedIn profile and use it to your best advantage; how to nail an interview (including remote interviews); and how to make the most of your available resources to find the best job opportunities.
Terrylynn is currently offering free assistance in two ways:
• A recurring Zoom training session on honing job search tools and skills, for which anyone can sign up for available time slots; and
• One-on-one weekly career coaching sessions (as her schedule allows).
Terrylynn Smith is currently available for interviews and speaking engagements via video. For more information, reach out to Terrylynn directly via the contact information below.
