Title: Learning Specialist

Situation: Helen’s Program Management job was switched to Sales. Her task: building business in a distressed industry, with non-profit clients who were losing their funding. Her new, commission-only job not only was a bad fit, it felt like a demotion. She truly feared losing 30-60% of her income.

Strategy: Completely rebrand Helen, showcasing her Project Management skills in highly technical environments. Reconnect with colleagues who know her outstanding IT and customer success skills.

New Position: Program Manager for government clients, managing highly- complex software integration projects.
