BOUQUETS

” I would like to convey my sincere thanks to Andre Cheong for his time and efforts in guiding me towards my current job placement. I had been searching for a full-time position for a number of months since last year and had sent a number of resumes and used many job search portals without any success. This had affected my confidence and I questioned if I had any relevant and employable skills or experience at all. When I attended his workshop on 22 Feb, I did not have much expectation other than to understand how I could better chart my career direction. To my pleasant surprise, I gained so many valuable insights that day. Using the assessment tool available, Andre facilitated an engaging session and enabled me to discover my strengths and interests and also provided tips on how to customize one’s CV so as to stand out to the hiring manager, amongst other useful pointers. Following that session, we continued to keep in contact and had further one-to-one sessions where he guided me on the interview approach and how to develop one’s roadmap and chart pathways towards achieving one’s goals. Through Andre’s coaching, I was finally able to secure a good full time job and more importantly, he has helped to raise my confidence and belief in myself. Thank you for organizing such useful and engaging workshops and thank you Andre for empowering me to achieve success in my career.” – Mr K Kwa
