How We Began in Emergency Services Career Planning
Destiny Career Planners was officially registered as a company by Karen Smith-Hanney in 2001. The initial goal was to provide specialized career coaching for clients working towards a career in fire fighting or policing. We have continued to keep up to date with various fire service and law enforcement recruitments to provide key information to clients so they can improve their performance and increase their chances of getting a job offer. At the heart of Destiny Career Planners are passion, dedication and genuine interest in helping people succeed. It is truly our honor and privilege to help you be the best you can be so you can make a difference in your career!
Destiny Career Planners has become the leader in providing career coaching to clients from throughout metro Vancouver and BC, Alberta and points east.
