The CareersKitchen Story — Why We Help Graduates and Early Professionals
Nora, Founder of CareersKitchen
So many of us struggled to find the right process and support we needed to choose a career path. We decided it was time that that changed, so why not be the ones who create the solution? That solution is CareersKitchen.
When I was at University, my peers were full of drive and passion and would pursue a multitude of diverse interests. It was such an inspiring time! The future was bright. We had exciting careers to look forward to and could not wait to explore what was to come.
But then we graduated…
My peers struggled to match job opportunities with what was meaningful to them. The difficulty to find and pursue a career path that not only excited but also fulfilled them lead to their passion being lost in translation and their vision for their professional future becoming somewhat blurred. I watched many aspiring (and inspiring) young professionals new to the job market apply to positions and make career choices, not inspired by what they really wanted to do, but instead based on the status of a company.
Fast forward a few years…
Many of the same people I went to University with, who were once bursting with excitement and passion, are now in their second job feeling unfulfilled and unhappy. The thrill of earning their 'first salary' has worn off and the 'reality' of doing unfulfilling work, day in and day out, has sunk in. These are just a few examples of the many people out there who pursue a job, not a career. I observed many of them after years in a position that didn't suit them, asking themselves:
- What do I really want?
- What does success look like to me?
- How can I work towards a career that is both meaningful and allows me to use my skill set?
This sparked something and made me ask myself how many people out there are struggling with this exact problem but cannot find a solution.
So, I decided to take action!
I could not write these words and urge people to pursue a career path that is meaningful to them if my own path did not satisfy my personal and professional aspirations. But I am writing these words, and CareersKitchen was born, with a mission to help early professionals make wiser career decisions based on a clear understanding of what suits their unique skill set and what work will fulfil them.
While the catalyst for CareersKitchen may have been the struggle for young professionals to get on the career ladder, our system is designed to suit the needs of many. Our premium program is catered to suit the needs of both up-and-coming in need of their big break and fully-established mid-level professionals who are desperate for a change. No matter what stage of your career you are at, you should be able to (and can) make the choices and changes to make your work life enjoyable and fulfilling.
If you are old enough to remember, when choosing your university course you used to open up a big UCAS book and browse through the course titles. There wasn't a great deal of information about what the courses involved, but whatever you chose, you wanted it to sound impressive to your family, friends and teachers! For me, when I was at school, it was always assumed I would go to university, get a degree and then a job. That's the standard career path, right? The thing is, that wasn't my plan. That was the plan based on where I was and who I was surrounded by. The demographic defined my future. I had friends who thought they wanted to be doctors and lawyers. Now, I am in touch with those same friends, but they are no longer in the jobs they had planned for themselves.
Everyone like me eventually found something more aligned to their interests, something that pushed them to get out of bed and go to work every day. Everybody should have that choice. To decide their own future, and make that decision based on their own capabilities and desires. It's hard to come to terms with all the opportunities that are out there, but I don't believe that any opportunity should be limited by a postcode, school, family legacy or any other factor. Understanding your strengths and finding a career suited to your interests is the only way to really succeed.
It is our purpose to provide as many people as we can with an accessible, affordable way to gain clarity on what a meaningful career is to them, discover the strengths they can leverage, and powerfully progress towards a career that truly fulfils them.

Our Career Development Program
For many people, a job is simply a way to earn money to finance the various aspects of their life. This means that lots of people work, day in and day out, in jobs that they neither like or are passionate about. It's a means to an end. But what about those of us who aspire for more, for a career path that excites us, engages us and makes us eager to see what tomorrow brings. CareersKitchen is the result of seeing many graduates fail to find jobs that suited their aspirate and talents, as well as established professionals who ended up in an industry that simply didn't suit them. But it's never too late for a change.
