Her hands-on style of prepping her own candidates through the interview process, thus enabling them to land the right roles sooner than their competition, was what led her to becoming a career coach.

She brings a unique perspective to her role as a career coach, given that her being a full life cycle recruiter means that, just like her own career coaching clients, she still has to constantly and actively reach out to companies to tap the hidden job market.

In addition, she not only has reviewed thousands of resumes and Linkedin profiles, interviewed hundreds of candidates, but has also designed, executed and implemented hiring plans for companies. From coming up with candidate personas to writing the job postings and interview scorecards to shortlisting applicants, handling screenings and salary negotiations, she coaches by drawing back the insider curtain that the average job hunter doesn’t get an opportunity to see past.
