I became acquainted with Idealist in late 2000 while working in the career development office at a private liberal arts college in NYC. I used it almost daily to help students and alumni find meaningful careers. After a 12-year stint in higher education, I worked as a career coach for professionals in various industries (and still used Idealist). During one of those many searches, a listing really caught my eye- the one for the newly-created position, Careers Program Coordinator. So... I jumped at the opportunity. Since then, I took on the role of Manager of Career Content for Idealist Careers, creating career content for job seekers, leaders, and other nonprofit professionals. Understanding the roles that a positive outlook and holistic self-care play in career success, I've shared with our readers time-honored methods for improving confidence and productivity. Now, as Manager of College and Professional Development, my focus is on lifting the advice from Idealist Careers "off the page". Drawing from my experience in career development, I propel job seekers and career changers towards taking control of their searches with confidence and removing fear, uncertainty, and other blocks to success via in-person workshops and seminars, webinars, and conference programming. My great loves are cooking (preferably without a recipe, otherwise I doctor it up), dancing, live cultural performances, identifying the tasting notes in a good cup of coffee, exploring neighborhoods for hidden gems, and anything else that sparks the senses and allows me to experience all the beauty, dynamism, and intrigue that vivaciously living in a remarkable world offers.

    Hi Victoria thanks for the article, I live in South Africa as the unemployment rate is 40% ,i have not worked for 4 moths, and have been going to career counseling which has been excellent.

  1. Hi Idealist team,

    I am a recent grad who feels like she is running around in circles trying to find my “fit.” I just found this Find Your Fit e-classes, but the registration closed last month. Will another session be held later in the near future?

    Thank you!

    1. Hello Maria and thank you for your interest. We plan to run the class again next year. In the meantime, if you’re interested in a resume e-class, we will be announcing another run of Write a Stand-Out Resume in May/June 2016.
