Client Results

Results after taking careers advice

Here are fourteen powerful testimonies from a selection of people I’ve coached in the last few years. You’ll notice how diverse they are; different jobs, a range of sectors, with various career issues.

These personal stories are all about their job searches, career changes or career progressions. Each person was able to choose just the coaching subjects they really needed, because the coaching is flexible.

I hope the stories inspire you, and help you to see a way forward.  Your story could be just as successful. By reading a few you’ll also get a picture of my approach, capability and experience in career coaching.

Advice and guidance is available on all aspects of your job search; exploring career direction, choosing a CV template, deciding on job search methods, handling interview questions, and more.
