About Careershifters

"After months of job hunting and banging my head on endless brick walls, your website is a breath of fresh air!" ~ Stephanie 

"I've discovered your website tonight and I just wanted to say a huge thank you. It's excellent. It's clear, insightful, honest, uncomplicated, and full of useful and relevant articles – and it's all supported by people's experience, which is invaluable. Thank you." ~ Rachel

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that your website and content is by far the best I have found about the subject of career change and I've seen a lot. I always find your content to be helpful, practical and uplifting. I've been navigating a career change for longer than I care to admit and I still believe I will get there. In the meantime, I would like to thank you for being an extremely valuable resource." ~ Steve

"Oh my goodness. I love all the information that I am receiving! I now have the courage and tools to move on to the career of my dreams. Thank you for your emails and all the tips. You will never know how much you have motivated me to move forward. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!" ~ Theresa 

"I just wanted to take time out to write to say that I think your website is one of the best I've seen on the subject of career transformation. Here in Canada (and in North America) I find a lot of this type of content is a bit repetitive and perhaps too aspirational. Your content is real, substantial, from the heart, and extremely practical." ~ Lori

"Your site has really inspired me to get up and get on with building a life that works for me, not for the satisfaction of others (i.e. all the jealous 9-5ers!). I'm putting everything in place to get out of my boring, characterless job and start doing what I want to do." ~ Charlie

"I wanted to just say thanks for your website and all the email newsletters. They've really helped to inspire me when making my career change. I've made a shift from online marketing to horticulture and I'm not looking back! Keep up the good work!" ~ Louisa

"Your site and newsletters have been a terrific source of encouragement and ideas for me. There is a good chance without them I would have continued to daydream of a new start, but never taken that first step to real change. Thank you guys!" ~ Jayne

"Just to say you guys are doing a brilliant job... your stories and emails have given me the confidence to start the process of changing roles to better balance things. Thank you for inspiring me!" ~ Veryan

"What I love about Careershifters is that you advise people to embrace their true character and values; that you don't need to change to fit into an ideal, just embrace the natural talents you have. Thank you, thank you!" ~ Ceryl

"As of yesterday, I officially have a new career. I start my new and exciting role next week! I am absolutely delighted and am spending today thanking all those who have helped me. As I mentioned before, your website has been an invaluable source. Being able to email an expert and receive tips to put me in the right direction really helped me find my feet. So a massive THANK YOU to all of you at Careershifters for your support. You really do deserve every success in what you're doing." ~ Liz

"I'm so glad I stumbled upon Careershifters. I feel in a much stronger, clearer and more confident position than I was in two weeks ago." ~ Sophie

"I’ve been meaning to get in touch for a while. I have made a massive career change from working full time in IT to running my own business. Your blog posts and website were invaluable to me as I transitioned." ~ Debi

"Your site and newsletters were a terrific source of encouragement and ideas for me. There is a good chance without them I would have continued to daydream of a new start, but never taken that first step to real change. Thank you guys!" ~ Jayne

About our articles

"I just wanted to say how much I love how positive your website is. Reading many of the engaging articles this week has really helped to build my confidence and resilience during my current 'aaargh, what do I want to be when I grow up' thoughts!" ~ Louise

"This website and all your blog entries have been EXACTLY what I needed right now, it is so heartening to know that so many other people feel the same way and it has been such a help to me reading your suggestions for how to move forward. Thanks so much guys!!" ~ Jamie

"Thanks to Careershifters I'm shifting my career! Have been thinking for a while about the direction I'm going in and after looking at your website and reading some of the advice I realised that I've got to go for it. So to cut a long story short, I'm aiming to do an MSc in psychodynamic counselling with children and adolescents in Sept." ~ Justine

"The article on micro shifts is exactly what I needed, I have been stuck for months waiting for the lightbulb moment and the motivation while feeling completely overwhelmed. This breaks everything down and so much less daunting. Thanks!!" ~ Catherine

"I hope you don't mind but I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how much I enjoyed your article this week on '4 Ways to Find Work You Love.' I had to mention it to you because reading the article was like looking in a mirror. I relate 100% with the person you describe: it's both painful and an incredible relief to read my reflection so clearly. Thank you for translating the frenetic minds of people like me and making our fervent curiosity and enthusiasm something to grasp hold of, tightly." ~ Claire

"THANK YOU! Just came home from a cr*p day at work and read some of the comments about the futility of 'traditional' job searching. It certainly put a smile on my face and instead of job hunting I will be on a mission -- and I'm already feeling more positive." ~ Karina

About our masterclasses

"A midweek motivational boost. I respond well to stories." ~ Ashley

About our workshops

"The workshop was a great kick-starter for me: I found a new job and quit the one I was unhappy in. Now have a delightful week off before starting as an account executive with a branding agency next week!" ~ Clare

"Thank you for the visionary, practical, and very useful workshop last night. I feel that so much was packed in to a very short space of time. Money incredibly well spent." ~ Hilary

"I attended one of your workshops and the impact still resonates months later. I resigned from a six year career and have secured a new job where I honestly couldn’t be happier. Thank you!" ~ Tom

"Gave me confidence, clarity, focus, and the first green shoots of a plan." ~ Chris

"Your workshop was the basis of my career change. I'm applying to be a primary school teacher and though this is something I'd always dreamed of; it's a plan I'd never put into action. I'd just like to say thank you for helping me think about the change in a more positive and achievable way – I went from having too many options to trying one thing at a time and finding my true passion." ~ Susie

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic evening at the Careershifters workshop. I came out feeling clearer about my aims, way more positive (which is great on a Monday!) and inspired to take action. Thank you so much." ~ Fariha

"I cannot thank you and the other people at Careershifters for opening my eyes up to a new way of thinking! I honestly don’t think I would have made this leap of faith without your workshop and talking to other people that evening." ~ Owen

"Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend my friends do it too." ~ Nathan

"I was nervous about attending but it turned out to be very useful. So thank you for your little push. I've been trying to leap off the ledge for many years but you guys finally placed the net below so I could jump safely." ~ Helen

"Reassuring and confidence boosting." ~ Elizabeth

"After attending a Careershifters workshop, I had the energy and drive to start researching how to get into teaching. I applied for a course, had an interview, got a place and left my old job in less than a week – it was so easy when I finally decided to go for it." ~ Nikki

"Practical, accessible and made the ‘fuzzy impossible’ take shape and feel achievable." ~ Alexandra

"All in all, thank you for helping me get so much more clarity from a 3-hour workshop. It was all it took to give me a lot more clarity and confidence!" ~ Agnes

About our Career Change Launch Pad

"I’m in a new career and grinning from ear to ear – I can’t believe that I’m actually doing it! Amazing course. Enthusiastic trainers. Highly recommended." ~ Sarah

"When I put myself back to where I was three months ago and look at where I am now, it’s been an incredible mindset shift. It’s now all become second nature."  ~ Simon

"Taking part in the Launch Pad helped reboot my confidence, kickstart my escape route, and I'm now aiming for the complete life/work balance I dream of." ~ Claire

"This morning I found myself thinking back on the Launch Pad, and the path I’ve followed since then to get me where I am today – and I felt it worth dropping a big ‘thank you!’ to your team. Thank you for helping me understand myself better. And thank you for helping me get on the right track. Please do keep up the excellent work – I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling that has been an invaluable help." ~ Carol

"I just want to say thanks to you all for inspiring and motivating my husband who is currently on your course. I've seen such a change in him, and his attitude, these last few weeks!
Thanks again." ~ Debbie

"Before the Launch Pad I felt trapped and without choices. Thanks to this experience I've learned how to reach out and find new ways to make the changes I want for my career (and ultimately my life) happen." ~ Alex

You made a difference in my life. Thank you." ~ Ann
