"I joined Make Your Mark the MASTERCLASS in need of career direction. But soon enough, through one month’s worth of classes, I stumbled upon the inspiration I had been looking for. In Nurys Pedersen’s MASTERCLASS, I discovered key career ingredients from a proven staffing thought leader. Most importantly, I was given the ability to tap into my inner most career desires, while drawing out a plan of action to help me reach my destination. This felt like a self-awareness awakening for the everyday nonprofit professional."

“Eye-opening workshop — leaving even more hopeful than I was prior to arriving.”

– Kelly O’Malley, Career Mapper & Nonprofit Professional 

"There is no greater feeling than being understood. Within a few minutes of meeting Nurys she identified what I needed most. I felt an instant connection and envisioned what I knew had been missing all along but could never clearly describe in my own words during my tireless search for employment in this challenging and ever changing job market terrain. Thanks to her years of experience, tireless dedication and commitment to more than just the bottom line, Nurys has given me a breath of fresh air when I needed it most. The feeling is indescribable. With just a few tips and advice I am well on my way to becoming a vibrant income earner once more for my growing family and a master of my own career map. I am immensely grateful to Nurys and I say keep doing what you do and know how to do best and above all love your job!"

The Make Your Mark workshop with Careers in Nonprofits was pivotal in helping me find the perfect position in my desired field. Nurys is a thoughtful and committed career coach and guided me to create an organized and specific career map. She also gave one-on-one advice on how to improve my resume and interviewing skills, as well as how to market myself better in general. Our excellent group discussions encouraged me to reflect on past professional experiences and learn how to take productive steps in the right direction. Right on cue, the course ended just as I was offered my dream job!

"Come early July of this year, I was offered a scholarship into the “Make Your Mark” program. August 2020 found me with a clarity never before experienced towards my career as well as a better perspective on my career purpose, direction and intention. I can honestly say that whatever my next role shall be, I will be loving my job. What a way to kick-off my September!"
