Our coaching service

From Family leave to working life is career coaching tailored for parents, with the aim of easing the transition from the family leave closer to working life. Coaching sessions are easy-going, encouraging and practical. Together we can search for information and find solutions to the things concerning you. The topics of coaching depend on your needs. For example, identifying your own strengths, finding your career path, work possibilities, education opportunities, modern ways of finding a job, creating personalized CVs and applications, networking, balancing work and family life, finding solutions to everyday challenges, dealing the paperwork regarding unemployment and family benefits, and improving parents’ and families’ well-being are some of the topics that can be covered in the coaching. Participating in the coaching can help clarify your thoughts about your next steps on your career path and give you a clear plan for the future. Let's move forward together in your and your family's pace towards your career goal.
