Career Coaching

Has the COVID 19 pandemic impacted your work or your search? Are you jobless or furloughed? Or is your current role not fulfilling and you need a change? 

Do you feel anxious, even overwhelmed by your job search, or do you need guidance in finding your next role?  Are your challenges around:

  • Being clear on who you are: your story and strengths
  • Identifying and practically targeting your first/next role
  • Changing career, using the current COVID 19 as a catalyst to focus on meaning
  • Managing your energy and wellbeing after a challenging time and amid current uncertainty 
  • Renewing your confidence and resilience to keep going and get the right job 

If so, I can help. I aim to help you stand out from the crowd and accelerate your transition into a job – be it your first one, a similar job to what you have or a different one. I work with all profiles from graduates to seasoned directors.

“Sophie’s approach is structured and rounded. Through this process, I regained self-confidence and optimism to find the job that suits me.” E-commerce Marketing – Retail and fashion sector / UK 

Approach & Outcomes

I will give you structured support with targeted and sequenced activities, tips and access to some resources in a blended format. Indeed, it is a neuroscience fact that a varied approach increases retention. You will gain: 

  • Clarity on your narrative and added value – i.e. on who you are and what you offer: skills, strengths, motivations, values, personality traits …
  • Ideas for your next role(s) with a targeted action plan
  • Advice on effective networking to get much-needed information to fine-tune your approach and get recommendations
  • Tips and tools for persuasive communication (CV, LinkedIn, letter) to be seen and land interviews 
  • Guidance on interview skills and mindset to confidently answer even the hardest questions and get the job
  • Confidence, optimism and resilience tips to manage the emotional lows and highs of this journey, learning along the way

The more you apply yourself in this process, the more you achieve.

She has asked all the right questions, found the perfect balance between firm and compassionate guidance and set me up expertly on my career path.” – L’Oréal graduate program – 23 years old

‘Sophie gave me the confidence that I could break into sports media. I was getting interviews but wasn’t successful in any of them, and I felt very deflated but when I met Sophie, she helped put me in the right mind-set. A month later I got a job, and I have so much to thank Sophie for! Getting that first job was hard but Sophie got me over the line’ Louis – 24 years old
