The Human Aspect of Rikke

After 30 years of working with my passion, I found myself unemployed, scared, and lonely in a new city. After managing a small hotel with my husband for more than 2 decades, we could not operate it alone anymore and decided to sell with heavy hearts. Having to restart my life without much formal education at such a high age turned out to be very challenging. After months of trying I felt unwanted and frustrated while trying to maneuver the system and job market.   Hear how I was introduced to a work inclusion company after a year and how they helped me turn things around. They met me with warmth and curiosity that gave me the space to explore who I was beyond my old life and work identity. Learn how I with this support managed to get internships and learn new skills that eventually got me a new job. Not just that I regained my self-worth, and got a new social network and a new identity to be proud of.
