I am Gina Covarrubias, BSAAE, MSME, and Certified Life Coach through The Life Coach School.
My mission is to guide technical experts out of career disappointment and equip them with knowledge to deliberately choose their next endeavor.
I understand that you graduated with high hopes and expectations.
Obtaining your bachelor’s degree was one of the best choices you could have made to secure your future. The sky was the limit as a new college graduate. You were ready to start molding your future, and you couldn’t wait to start working for renowned companies whose products made you quiver with excitement. You felt on top of the world.
Do you tell yourself, “This is not what I signed up for”?
Or, “I can’t do this for another 30+ years… I wish I knew what to do.” After obtaining both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in engineering, I was in search of my dream job. I blamed myself for not making better choices. I dissected every word in job listings. Then I wondered if I needed to get back to school for a different degree. I was unhappy with my professional life. And then I became more unhappy about my unhappiness. Guilt struck me. People didn’t understand how I could be dissatisfied with what appeared to be a prestigious career.
I was on the hunt for my perfect job.
My dissatisfaction was never due to one particular job or one particular employer. I held an all-or-nothing mentality: As long as I was searching for my ‘perfect’ job, nothing else seemed to be good enough.
Eventually I discovered the solution to my professional disappointment.
My adolescent dream was to become an aerospace engineer. I made that dream come true. After several years in my career, I decided it was time to make a different dream come true. I left my engineering profession and discovered a breakthrough. I experienced difficult, yet enlightening self-awareness thanks to life coaching. I discovered why much of my professional career had felt so unfulfilling. Finally, I found my solution.
Today, my dream job is to help people like you who experience career disappointment.
My goal is to help you understand why you’re stuck, why you’re disappointed and why you’re afraid to make your next career move. I will help you gain perspective and reframe your thinking as a self-improvement practice. Then, you will gain the skills to be able to confidently commit to your next role.
It’s time to start maximizing your career and stop living by default. You deserve to look forward to a brighter, deliberate future.
