Hi! I'm Armine
For as long as I can remember, I've always enjoyed helping people. All throughout high school and college, I've found myself in situations where I was helping someone with something! I liked to joke and say that I have a sign on my forehead that says "ask me" ;)
Hence, it is no surprise that I gravitated toward a Psychology major in college. I was intrigued by the subject since I first heard about it. I absolutely loved my major, but I didn't know what I wanted to do as a career after I graduated. After a career crisis, some soul-searching, and some research, I went on to graduate school to study College and Career Counseling. Not only did I learn how to help others, I also learned how to navigate my own growth. It was a perfect storm of challenge, growth, and development.
Since then, I've worked at multiple college campuses as an academic and career counselor. Through my experiences, I realized that I get excited about all things career and I want to channel that excitement to serve a purpose.
That is why I started CareeRise! I hope to motivate, educate, and guide you toward career success and fulfillment. I'm here to help people recognize their full potential and navigate through career planning and professional development.
