Love it!

I would love to read more about what you have learned from these kind of calls.

Are there general themes to peoples worries, how much of the talks are practical info, story-telling(your experiences) or just plain ol' confidence boosting to take a career leap etc. :)

This is such a good question.

From memory I would estimate that about 20% of people that I talk to are looking for early career advice (getting their first job, resume/CV writing, interviews).

Maybe another 30% are asking about problems at work or with their career.

15% are asking really specific things that I don't know how to answer.

But a good 30% are folks who are (to my knowledge) already doing everything they need to get the result they want. Here, I just get to reassure them.

Maybe 5% is just cool, weird unexpected things.

I'll do a more detailed writeup soon!
