TESTIMONIALS

I hear your love

Before contacting Agnes, I was facing several challenges.
Firstly, I had no idea about the correct and effective setup of my Linkedin page and my CV/Cover Letter. Second, after continuous negative response to sent applications I did not have any idea what could be the problem. I was at a complete standstill on my path of changing my career.

The best benefit I received from Agnes was her understanding the situation and handling it as her own. She gives several ideas (useful Websites, Job Search engines, etc.) and solutions for problems in looking for a job. Besides that she shares her experience from her own career path as well. Her easygoing and positive personality gives the sessions a very friendly atmosphere. It feels like you are talking to a friend while she is coaching your career. :)

I feel very lucky to have had Ágnes as a coach in my job search. 

Having been out of the job market for more than 20 years I struggled with unusual challenges, even with writing my resume. Her ability to quickly pinpoint problem areas combined with her valuable insights and tips helped me get over seemingly impassable obstacles. With her compassion, attunement and experience I found my own career path now consciously aligned with my strengths and weaknesses.  

I highly recommend her to anyone who can benefit from a clear assessment of one’s career needs and the support that can lead to the successful pursuit of it.

I would definitely recommend Agnes, she prepared for the session with a lot of background materials and provided me with a comprehensive and personalized analysis regarding my job searching possibilities. She highlighted the characteristics of the Swiss pharmaceutical job market and after having analysed my CV and LinkedIn profile, I could make them more attractive for the recruiters.

I faced the challenge of being made redundant and was having issues with my confidence. With Agnes’s coaching services I got back some of my confidence and it helped me get through difficult times. It helped me think about what I want and where I want to go. Agnes is very empathic, a good listener and asks the right questions at the right time, all of which is what you want from a great coach

A Big Thank you Agnes for providing such an exceptional presentation on the intricacies of the job search process in Switzerland. Agnes covered a lot in a very short time and the session was not only informative but also incredibly insightful. Agnes equipped everyone with a wealth of resources and we are very grateful for her. We are looking forward to continued collaborations.

I faced the challenge of not knowing enough people on the market who could support me to move on. Agnes showed me more effective ways of looking for a role in a highly competitive market. I learned from Agnes how to answer the questions during the interview in a better way and I increased my network with her support. After my discussion with Agnes, I felt confident and more prepared for a new challenge. I would definitely recommend Agnes to anyone who is looking to get back to work, as the knowledge received is necessary to proceed further and get results.”
