Spotlight Series: Meet Certified Career Coach Khoren Claiborne

1. Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! My name is Khoren. I am 25 years old and if I could choose one word to describe me, I would definitely say empathetic. I am a complete empath and an emotionally intelligent individual. My generosity and sincerity allow me to pour out the best versions of myself in order to achieve success. I am also strong-willed and determined, which in return pushes me to advocate for others by any means necessary. These characteristics set me apart because I use them to help me assist others in achieving a sustainable quality of life.

2. What was your first job and how did you get it?

My first job was actually as an intern for the Department of Treasury in Washington, DC. I created my OWN resume and cover letter, applied and was chosen, at only the tender age of 18! I worked with Obama's Home Affordable Refinance Programs. During my time there, I was responsible to expedite or decline letters sent in by homeowners underwater in their mortgage or needing to refinance their home due to financial struggles. At this job, was when I truly learned that my passion was to help others and assist them in leading sustainable lives.

3. How did you decide and get to your career today?

I got into my career today, through becoming a certified career coach. I've always written resumes for friends and colleagues, even my elders, and it was truly something I enjoyed doing. Becoming a career coach, and understanding that career development involves much more than simply resume writing and interviewing skills, I wanted to build upon those priorities I found important. I think that having a professionally written resume can align you in the right path to career success along with personal introspection and interviewing skills. I believe that all of those things are interchangeable, and all lead to a life of sustainability as a professional and member of society. 

4. What advice would you have given your younger self? Or what is the best career advice you have ever received?

The best career advice that I've received is to never attach yourself to a person, place, company, organization, or a project. Attach yourself ONLY to your mission in life and your PURPOSE. 

5. In 5 years, where do you hope to be professionally and personally?

In 5 years, professionally, I hope to have successfully been in the career development field having made a difference in other's lives. Personally, I hope to have started a family, and stayed true to my purpose!

Stay connected with Khoren!
