Charles River Careers was launched in the summer of 2017 to address what we believe to be an unmet need in the world of career services: a clearly structured offering of end-to-end personalized career services designed to support individuals and companies in an increasingly dynamic economy.
What we see in the news is true: the pace of globalization is accelerating, tech is moving at break-neck speed, and specialization is increasingly the name-of-the-game. Companies are shifting away from a ‘function’ mindset and moving rapidly to a project centric focus. It’s getting harder to change career direction and risky to rely on one industry or sector to secure your career.
But there’s good news – we’re here to help.
Our mission is to help you navigate the new world order, to help you build a clear picture of who you are and where you’re headed – so you can navigate not only your current transition, but the long game too.
No matter where you are in your professional journey or business challenge – our clients come first. We appreciate every client has a unique perspective, situation and evolving set of life and career goals. We partner with our clients to fully understand their needs and to help them navigate their current transition, decision or challenge.
We only use best in class tools and methods. We’re up to speed on the latest vocational, leadership and team dynamics research; if a method hasn’t had some type of scholarly review – it’s not included in our toolkit.
Our coaches have real-world leadership experience. They have worked in varied industries and knowledge domains, formed and led teams, led departments, groups or functions, and in some cases started companies and launched non-profits.
We use a structured approach to support our clients, regardless of where they are in their professional journey. This includes writing engagement plans, using step-wise approaches, building visions and roadmaps, helping with decision support, detailed search support and navigating transitions.
And to top things off, we focus on outcomes. Although bringing clarity to complex situations is critical, it’s equally important that our clients know what steps to take to successfully navigate the transition or decision at hand.
