Former Wall Street trader embarks on new career

With a wealth of entrepreneurial experience and a degree from UWO in hand, the future was looking very bright for Chris. Having worked for stock trading firms in both Canada and on Wall Street, it appeared that his career was on the fast track. He was making excellent money and was continuing to develop his skills and understanding of the complex world of stock trading. But then - as it often happens in life – things changed.

“While working as a stock trader and doing quite well, my budding career was suddenly cut short due to new regulatory compliance changes that came down from main street in Washington. These new regulations pretty much put us out of business. I was at a point in my life where I said, wow - for the last year and half I was figuring this thing out and starting to make some excellent money – and all of sudden, it was shut off like a light bulb. My first reaction was - where do I go now and what am I going to do.”

Like so many people today, Chris was dealing with an unexpected loss of employment, coupled with the inherent challenges of a very competitive job market. After sending out a number of resumes and receiving absolutely no responses, he knew he needed some help.

“A friend told me to go check out this firm to see what they could do for me.  So I went to Capstone Career Solutions and had my initial interview and from there, things just really worked out for me. Once I started my weekly meetings with Martin, it opened up my mind and I really learned a lot about myself. I realized how much work that there was for me to do to fit into a specific organization. At the point in a person’s life where they are making a transition, it is really great to have that type of career advisor to guide you in a way that is perfect for you.  Things like the personality assessment and just getting to know you as an individual - they have a pretty good idea where you would fit in the workplace and how your past experience and skills can be transferred to a new career. You really have to know yourself and take hold of your own skills and refine them to be fully prepared for the job search process.”

And that’s what makes Capstone’s approach so unique. It’s not just about finding a job; it’s about finding the right job. When an individual learns things about themselves, it really opens up the door to new possibilities. Knowing what you truly want from life and from your career is the key to long-term happiness and fulfilment.

“From the online job search tool and email alerts to the one-on-one career consulting, all of Capstone’s services are extremely valuable. Their level of knowledge and professionalism rates a ten out of ten. I could not be more satisfied. To this day, even after landing a great position as a Financial Advisor with MacLean & MacLean Financial, I continue to drop by Capstone to chat. I definitely achieved all my career goals and would highly recommend Capstone Career Solutions to anyone looking to take their career to a new level.”
