FINDING YOUR IKIGAI:
During this stage we do clarity work so that we find out what you do better than anyone else - I work with you to discover your skills, strengths, weaknesses, passions. I have tools and systems that help you identify jobs that will resonate with you and I find out what makes you feel alive, heard, seen and what ignites your spark. This is how we discover your true ikigai - your purpose. Once we’re clear we translate this in to an ideal job that exists. Knowing your ideal job makes your search so much easier.
In this stage we build your story so that a recruiter totally gets you – we build your personal brand. I’ll write your marketing campaign: a resume that makes your credentials jump out, a cover letter that will be read, and a LinkedIn profile to match. This is your story. You will be able to communicate the exact role you’re looking for and why you’re the best one for it. Instead of having to spend hours online searching and applying, your clarity will attract recruiters.
GETTING NOTICED: Converting Interviews to Offers
Here I work with you to ensure you have executive presence, so you build a connection with your employers. I’ll help you get your interviews perfectly polished so the employer notices you - so that you never leave an interview without having shown your best self. I make sure they see all of you, and can’t wait to see you again. I get you selling yourself as the solution to their problem. Once you get the offer, I’ll work with you on salary negotiation so nothing is left unspoken, and you get everything you need. Finally we work on your first three months of on-boarding so that you’re told you’re the best hire they’ve ever made.

Sonia is an amazing and devoted coach who asks the right questions. She beautifully tailored her own process to my own specific needs, after thoroughly determining where I was in my search of a career. She has left no stone unturned in the process. She empowered me, gave me back so much confidence to trust in the process and in myself. After 8 weeks of homework and coaching sessions, I have a kick-ass resume and cover letter, and know how to make work for me, to get me where I want to go. I feel confident in interviews, and know how to put my story and skills in the best light. I can firmly say that this was the best investment I ever made for my career! My advice to anyone reading this : take the first free call, and see if her coaching is for you, you will definitely not regret it.
I have tremendously enjoyed my sessions with you.
I've learned so much about myself and about promoting my work, skills and education. Thank you for dismantling the beliefs that caused me to doubt myself in the first place.
Thank you so. I haven't felt this alive in two years.
You may not realize, but I regard you as a great aspiration and inspiration of a woman who can juggle it all: kids, job, social events . Thank you for contributing your time and ideas always.
I've had single primary job for 20 years, with a number of side gigs. Thus, my CV was highly geared to the sector of my main job, of limited interest outside it, and I had few ideas about how to make it more appealing. Sonia helped me identify and present achievements in my main job, as well as how to present my array of other activities in a more balanced way. I was particularly impressed by Sonia's drawing on her personal network to support me.
