MEET THE TEAM
SYLVIE DESJARDINS, CCC, LCT, CVRP
Sylvie is the founder of NxCareer! She is passionate about supporting people feel confident in their career path so that they can take on the world and bring their dreams to life!
Confidence can quickly become a competitive advantage and an open door to connecting with potential employers. Therefore, a lack of confidence in yourself or in your skills will break you... She learned this the hard way and she certainly doesn't want you to do the same mistakes.
When she was seeking the job market for a job without even knowing what she really wanted to do, she felt stressed, confused and she was all over the place! That's when she started researching and learned the ins-and-outs of the job market.

What fulfills me the most, is helping people discover the best career choice and allowing them to shine.
AND THAT IS WHY I FOUNDED NXCAREER
ANNICK MCINTOSH, CCC, LCT
Several factors can have significant impacts on your career path. For Annick, it was initially motherhood that brought her share of questions about her professional path. When her first child was born, she changed jobs. When her second child was born, she questioned whether she was even in the right career, as she felt that the work she was doing was no longer meeting her professional needs. It was at that time that she consulted a career counselor to clarify her professional future. She then realized that she was in fact in the right career, but the work she was doing was not meeting her “must-haves” due to the changes in her personal life. Annick is now a mom, a career specialist with NxCareer, an entrepreneur and feels she is exactly in the right place in her career.
Your career evolves over time based on your personal and professional experiences. What you envisioned as a career journey 5 years ago may no longer meet who you are today. No matter where you are in your career path, it’s okay to question yourself. Annick understands that life experience can have an impact on your career and that the many roles that we have as a mom and a professional can raise its share of questions. She also understands that everyone’s needs are different and that they must be respected and considered during a career counselling process to find the career that suits YOU.
So, if you are wondering about your professional path or feel that your career no longer meets your personal and professional needs, Annick is the career specialist for you (fun fact: she is an INFP). She will be able to support you and encourage you to achieve your professional goals to allow you to feel that you too are exactly at the right place in your career.
Annick is a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), a Licensed Counselling Therapist (LCT) and has a master’s degree in career counselling from Université de Moncton.
MYLÈNE OUELLETTE, CCC, CVRP
When Mylène was in high school, she thought she knew herself well and knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life, but she hadn't considered her personality, aptitudes nor her career must haves when making that decision. When her original plan (plan A) did not pan out, she was clueless as to what to do next. Plan A was all she could think about since the 9th grade - she hadn't considered other possibilities. One year into university, with three program switches under her belt, she finally requested the help of a career counselor. Although she sees that year as crucial in her self-discovery, she was happy to finally have clarity on what she should do next. She went on to pursue studies that led her to where she is today: a Career Counselor at NxCareer with a master's degree in career counseling from the Université de Moncton. She is a Canadian Certified Counselor (CCC) and a Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professional (CVRP).
Mylène understands that everyone's path is different, but she is certain that everyone (especially high schoolers, new graduates, and college/university students!) can benefit from the services of a career counselor, whether it's for 1 or more sessions. She wants to make sure that young people have the necessary tools and self-knowledge to be better equipped when making a career decision. In other words, she doesn't want them to repeat the same 'mistakes' she made.
So, if you are a high school or college/university student or a recent graduate, then Mylène is your go to girl. She's been there and knows the right questions to ask. She also easily creates and maintains a relationship of trust with her clients and thrives on helping them attain their personal and professional goals.
Fun fact: Mylène is an ISFJ!
