I was at a crossroads in terms of my future career options. I had spent almost 20 years in the same role and knew I needed a new direction. Angela was recommended by a colleague and I was slightly apprehensive as I had never had coaching before. I found her so easy to talk to and her approach of letting me take the lead, yet asking me the right questions to help me develop a career plan really worked for me. Her career coaching sessions coupled with her interview coaching helped me to find and secure a role that I would never have dreamed of in the past.
I recently interviewed for a Senior Leadership Role at the HSE. I was overwhelmed with the extent of preparation required for this Interview. I was blown away by Angela’s Interview Coaching. Her knowledge of the HSE policies and the interview process as well as her practical, step by step approach to preparing for the role helped me to strategically and methodically prepare for interview. It was obvious she gave a lot of time and consideration to the role I was applying for and how I could articulate my experience to stand out as a candidate. I was delighted to succeed at interview and would 100% recommend Angela to anyone who is about to apply for interview, it is a solid investment in your future career.
I was ignoring promotional opportunities as I had a lot of family responsibilities and wasn’t sure I could put my career first and felt advancing in the organisation may not suit my family circumstances. Through my coaching sessions with Angela I realised that going for promotion did not necessarily mean less family time and I had never really challenged my beliefs about this. I also realised through coaching that I needed to network more, requested mentoring and developed the confidence to apply for a number of roles before identifying and securing a promotional role that brings career stretch opportunities for me as well as fitting in with my family situation
I initially worked with Angela a number of years ago to develop my interviewing skills, I came to coaching lacking confidence in my abilities and had a huge hang up about interviews. Angela helped me to manage my interview anxiety and focus on my strengths and I was delighted to finally be successful at interview. I returned to Career coaching with Angela this year as I was deeply unhappy with my role at work following a re-structuring program. Angela helped me to assess my options and through our sessions together I have made a career change that has positively impacted my career prospects as well ensuring I am honoring my work life balance goals.
