Looking for a career change or higher-paying promotion to start 2023? Look no further than “My Coach,” a life-changing career coaching program beginning February 14.

“MyCoach” is offered by Gesher Human Services and will be held at their Southfield location. The program includes four masterclass group sessions on Feb. 14, 16, 21 and 23 from 10 a.m. to noon, plus an individual coaching session. While there is a $75 fee for the program, scholarships are available.

According to job search advice websites, the first months of the year are often believed to be the best time to look for a new job, when hiring managers have new budgets, the majority of workers have returned from vacation, and the hiring backlog at many companies has restarted. “MyCoach” will provide attendees with high-powered job search tools as well as help participants identify their strengths and be aware of market trends.
