Who We Work With
We can be career explorers, career decision makers and career strategists at any age of our lives.
Have you finished high school and are wondering what you are going to do with your life? We help young adults get their lives back on track and help them build a career strategy that leads to long term employment. We spend more time on career exploration, improving career decision making skills and creating career strategies that lead to better career choices and a better quality of life.
Are you in the wrong field? We help career changers answer four fundamental questions: Do you like the industry you work in? Do you like the company you work for? Do you like the job you are doing? Do you like the people you work for? By analyzing what you like and dislike about the work you currently do, we help you find a career doing more of what you love and less of what you don’t.
Has a recent divorce disrupted your life plans? At Constructive Career, we know that divorce can happen at any stage of adult life. We help our clients navigate this difficult transition time and help them with career and life decisions that lead to a positive and fulfilling life.
Have you recently been let go from work after long term employment? Are you afraid that ageism will prevent you from working? We help our clients identify what they have to offer the workplace and the wide variety of opportunities available to people 50 and over.
As a result of working with Ann, I was able to bring my interests to the forefront and prioritize the areas of my career that I wanted to focus on.
I needed to make a change to an area of Human Resources that better aligned with my interests. As a result of working with Ann and going through a self-assessment I was able to bring my interests to the forefront and prioritize the areas of my career that I wanted to focus on now and 5 years from now. Ann was able to help me confirm other elements of my work life that are important to me such as type of work environment, values of the leadership team, as well as, the company. Ann provided me with guidance and the tools necessary to research and target which companies would be an ideal fit. Now I believe I am 80% aligned with my new position.
With Ann's help, I put it in perspective and saw myself in the driver's seat.
Ann Nakaska provided a very worthwhile job search consultation that helped me to take those first daunting steps as I considered re-entering the workforce as a 47 year old mother of two. She helped me fine tune my resume to reflect my goals and professional achievements. The job interview process was intimidating, but with Ann's help, I put it in perspective and saw myself in the driver's seat. I saw a boost in my confidence and secured a great job in my chosen field. Thank you Ann, for all your support.
Ann's life interview gave me new insights into what aspects of a job I would love.
I was in my fifties and had been out of the workforce for several years. I no longer felt qualified to practise as an engineer and I was looking for a way to launch a late career as a technical writer. Ann's life interview gave me new insights into what aspects of a job I would love and, at least as importantly, what I would loathe. Ann encouraged me to complete a technical writing certificate, and I am now a full-time technical writer and editor at one of Canada's Top 100 Employers.
I originally contacted Ann because I was unsure about how to further my career and effectively seach for a new job that fit my interests. Thanks to Ann's advice, constant feedback and novel career ideas, I now have a new job I love, and I know how to continually advance my career and my prospects.
