Casa Velas, an adults-only luxury boutique hotel in Puerto Vallarta, offers a transformational retreat for guests to rethink, reimagine, and reinvent their careers. The retreat, led by experienced career counselor and life coach Ruth Beltran, will take place from April 24th to 28th, 2023, and will include a daily program focused on helping guests take control of their work lives. Whether you’re looking to identify a new career, reposition yourself in your current field, or improve your job search skills, Beltran’s upbeat, inspiring, yet practical approach will leave you motivated and ready to tackle the work world with renewed energy.

During the retreat, guests will cover various topics, including job search strategies, personal mission statements, career decision-making, and interviewing skills. They’ll also take a closer look at the new realities and implications of the work world, and learn how to navigate the changes taking place. By the end of the retreat, participants will have developed a plan for their career decisions, as well as the power tools, such as personal mission statements, resumes, and cover letters, to put that plan into action.
