Welcome to my Career Development, Career Management, and HR Blog

Thanks for stopping by. As you probably guessed, my first name is Helen. I have a Ph.D. or doctorate in Psychology and my last name starts with an O … Not the most original way to choose an URL but drheleno.ca was available. There are times when I’m speaking with someone and I don’t have a card and neither of us has a pen and paper (or wants to pull out a phone) so I tell them they can find me under drheleno.ca and this takes them to my I/O Advisory Services website. For a while, this blog was independent of the main website.

Ask Dr. Helen About Career and HR Issues

My graduate degrees are in Industrial/Organizational Psychology so I am knowledgeable about work-related situations/problems, careers, and other issues that employees, leaders, and business owners face. Since I have many years of experience working with hiring managers/hiring organizations, I can offer advice that will be useful to small business owners who could use some temporary human resources (HR) help. Please click here for an overview of my HR and Career-Related services.

So, check back here regularly or connect with me via social media. There’s more to come.

In the meantime, if you have HR or career-related matters that you’d like to discuss, please contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. I’m also available if you’d like to discuss any of these topics in more detail.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.
