about

 

It's fun to connect the dots in your career.

 

Whether running expanded global operations in e-learning; or leading an international business school career team through 270% growth; or engaging international job seekers from 120 nationalities as a certified career coach; or pioneering multiple new EdTech teams in college publishing, I've found the secret sauce in common is:

Finding and motivating top talent—while helping people push boundaries to advance skills.

 

Amazing people are unforgettable. My teams and I will always be fond of the lives we touched—and careers we propelled around the world. I've been fortunate to have worked globally with extraordinary people. And thrilled with what we all achieved together.

Today, I'm here to support you. I look forward to meeting you!

Coaching at all stages across all industries:
Early-career
Mid-career
Executives
Career changers
International job seekers

 Inspiring change   

 

I love helping people—to love what they do.

 

Sometimes you may need a helping hand, an ear for listening or suggestions to help prompt career decisions to start something new.

 

Other times you may be comfortable working independently to better understand yourself—your skills, personality, interests, knowledge and experiences in this ever-changing world. 

 

Stories are memorable. They are the key to helping you stand out and convey how well your experience translates to the new role.

From artists to construction workers, medical professionals to academics and from business or marketing folks to education experts, happy to help you in all industries and roles. To find satisfaction in your life and career.

Priyanka N.

Joanne is very approachable and dedicated, has a great eye for detail and goes beyond her call of duty to help.

Joanne has been with me through every step of my job search process be it preparing for interviews, resume building, salary negotiations or networking.

 

She is at times more proactive than me and always looks out for opportunities for all her clients. Joanne is always available to help even when she is away on business meetings.

It was great working with Joanne and I hope I can strive for the perfection that she always achieves.

Helping people like you...

Eduardo P.

Joanne was my career advisor during my year as a graduate student, not only that but she was such a key person in the process of landing a job even before graduation. Her professionalism and excellence stood out in every meeting. Her help was always clever and opportunely while getting ready for key interviews, even when sometimes the time available before sending an application was less than 48 hrs.

Joanne is a truly epic writer, not only a good one — you will find very few people that can write as well as her. Whether I had to contact companies in Europe, Asia or US, her advice was always accurate and tailored to each culture. Her wisdom enabled me to both face and overcome the challenges of the job search process, especially while doing the transition from my previous job in my country to the US. 

I am very thankful for having her as my career coach. It was a blessing that definitely marked the outcome after my year as a graduate student, and even more now while I am working as a professional marketer in the corporate world.

Idowu N.

Joanne is not just a career coach, she is an inspiration. She brings the best out of people by listening attentively to their wishes and aspiration while focusing on their strengths.

She understands the phrase,” Using your passion to achieve your mission in life”. 

She uncovered my passion and I am on my way to achieving my mission. 

I would encourage everyone to connect with her and allow her to make an impact in your lives. 

Thank you for changing my life and career for the best.
