It’s always nice to talk to people who really know what they’re talking about. People who have been there, done that and learned from all of it. One of them whom I have just recently met is Marketing Professional, Psychologist, Career Coach and Writer MALOU TRENAS DEL CASTILLO.
I have always used the word “expert” on people that I know who are not only learned but also experienced in a subject matter – those who walk the talk or talk the walk, whichever is more appropriate. You don’t go to a baker to have your hair cut and you can’t trust a librarian to build you a house. You always go to an expert.
Malou Trenas Del Castillo is an expert Marketing Professional for some of the leading companies in the country. And for this many people have always seek for her advice.
Del Castillo made a career out of coaching where she basically helps people get to where they want to go or where they belong. Lee Hecht Harrison even got her on board as a career consultant. While Good Housekeeping magazine got her to write a column for them for 7 whole years. She became an expert in this field as well.
When she realized that career coaching is sometimes intertwined with her client’s emotional and personal needs and problems, she decided to become a licensed psychologist to be able to holistically and effectively help them with their career needs.
She now holds sessions as a career coach and as a clinical psychologist separately and sometimes at the same time. She also facilitates workshops and a favorite resource person in various speaking engagements.
She recently came out with a book called “The Career Road Map” which serves as a personal guide to corporate career success. A 140-page and four-part compilation of all the most important frequently asked questions about career – from discovering what career path is best for you to winning your first job application, making the most out of your chosen career or shifting to a new one.
“I am not a super good writer but I like storytelling. It made the writing easier for me because I realized that rather than straight out telling people what they need to do to find their ideal job, I would tell a story that somehow is an analogy of that. That’s something I learned to do when I would do workshops and when I do counselling.”
Del Castillo said that the book will be her way of reaching out to all the people who need some guidance in making a right career choice and how to be a success in their chosen fields. She won’t be able to reach everyone through her talks and counselling sessions but the book will make sure that they can always get an instant help from her anytime, anywhere and with every turn of a page.
THE CAREER ROAD MAP is now available for only 350 Pesos at select branches of National Bookstore: Mall of Asia, Greenbelt, Glorietta, Market! Market!, SM Aura, SM Megamall, Shangri-La Mall, Trinoma and Ayala Fairview Terraces.
