Robin P. Pajot

Career Coaching, UNITED STATES


"I plan to use my certification in coaching, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and the Strong Interest Inventory to help identify natural strengths and preferences in high school and college students, so they can choose their majors and career paths with those strengths in mind. I'll also be working with adults in career transition, helping them pull together their experience in new and refreshing ways. I'm also energized by working through any life issues that come up as a result."

The goal is not to become fearless, but to lower the fear level through awareness, planning and practice so they are able to act and move forward."
