Introduction: *** Named TOP 3 coaches in Charlotte, NC by Influence Digest*** I am a career coach who supports professionals like you to have better career adventures as they navigate with ease different career transitions (early career path, job change, career change, and career development). In the last decade, I had the joy of coaching thousands of people. My background is in organizational psychology. I have two masters and a Ph.D. in organizational psychology and human resources. Check my site for more information. WHO DO I SUPPORT: *Early Career Path* Are you graduating soon or are you a new graduate in search of a career direction or your first job? Are you a little lost and not sure if you started on the correct career path or what to do next? *Job Change* Are you feeling unfulfilled, burned out, or just plain unhappy with your current job or company? Did you decide to change jobs and are not sure how to position yourself on the job market or inside your company? *Career Change* Are you entertaining the notion of reinventing yourself? Are you ready to leap into a new career but you are still holding on to your current profession? *Career Development* Are you an established professional eager to become better at what you do? Do you want to improve your leadership skills (e.g., delegation, communication, influencing, team management, etc.)? Do you want to strategize for your next promotion or career step? Or maybe you just want to regain the motivation for your job? HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOU: Our sessions will be designed based on your unique needs and timed based on how far and how fast you want to go. Here are some topics we might explore during our coaching session: *Self-exploration* – We will use a combination of diagnostic assessments, readings, feedback from others, self-reflection activities to clarify your interests and skills. We will define and explore your interests, values, previous experiences, and career goals. It is a way of reflecting and gaining a deeper understanding of oneself. As a result of self-exploration, you will get a clearer perspective on your interests and abilities and possibly the type of work environments you want to experience and those that you want to avoid. *Context exploration* – We will investigate various career options that you may consider pursuing. In exploring the environment, you will proactively collect new information on jobs, organizations, occupations, or industries that allow more informed career decision-making. *Networking* - You will get a better understanding and a realistic preview of your job possibilities by using and expanding your network of recruiters, hiring managers, and other resources. We will build your network so that you can find people who can help you in your job search. *Job application process (Resume and LinkedIn)* – We will create and tailor your experience to show up strong in your resume and LinkedIn profile and help you stand out. We will find the right keywords and qualifications that will attract recruiters and hiring managers to you. *Interview preparation* – We will role-play a variety of interview questions and set you up for success so the world can see the value you bring. We will do 1:1 mock-up interviews and I will give you balanced feedback that will ensure you transition from the phone screen to the end rounds and land an offer. Learn how to say the right things (formula for answer interview questions), sell yourself without being pushy, and relate your experience with the company and job description. *Offer negotiation* – We will go through the negotiation process together until the offer is signed and you get the highest percentage of your targeted compensation package (salary and other benefits). *Prepare for a promotion* – Put in place a strategy that will set you up for success so the organization can see the value you bring. *Email and/or Text Support 24/7* – You are never alone and there is always help available to you when you need it. I am simply there for you, ensuring you succeed. *And much more!! ***Your Next Step*** If you’re ready to start this journey, then let’s talk! Reach out to book a complimentary 30 min session to get started!

Irina I am so thankful that I found you on thumb tack. You were awesome with preparing me for several job interviews at the last minute. Irina went above and beyond. She was positive, honest, and creative in her approach. She provided great constructive criticism and feedback after the interviews. I will continue to use Irina as my coach to assist me with furthering my personal and professional goals. She is on my team for life!!

I feel so fortunate to call Irina a coach and influence in my life. From our first call, I felt an instant connection with her. She is intelligent, personable, and a straight shooter. Irina has many strengths, but one I personally appreciate is her constructive feedback. She is honest and kind and will continue to work with you until you feel confident. And one more thing: from someone who tends to overthink things, Irina brings simplicity and a clear plan of action to my projects and pursuits. So thankful to have her as a coach!

I was struggling with finding a job in my profession. Irina helped me to prepare my resume, we found my mistakes in a job search process, she gave me much professional career advice. After her sessions, I started receiving more interview invitations and more next steps interviews. Eventually, I found a job and I am feeling very happy that I invested in working with Irina

I only had a brief opportunity to speak with this life coach but what little she shared with me was very dynamic, relevant, concise, and effective. She is packed with so much wisdom in just a little time. She was respectful of my time and finances and was able to address my situation while also giving me things to think about. I'm very glad I spoke to her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Depending on your need, you can book a single session, a 3 sessions package, a 3-month package, or a 6-month package. When you commit to a package, the price per session becomes less but that is not the purpose of the package. What a package can offer you is commitment and accountability to make progress. Unless you just have a one-time need, most often to accomplish a more complex goal you will need multiple sessions across multiple weeks or months. The packages are there to help you start and maintain your progress. Contact me for a free 30 minutes introductory free session to see which option is the best for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Sessions are one hour long and can be face to face, by video, or by phone depending on your preference and location. You would complete an assessment prior to the first session and during our coaching engagement, you will receive tools that will help you accomplish your goals. In between sessions, we will stay connected as needed with regular touchpoints to keep momentum and celebrate successes. Each of my clients receives a lot of my attention besides the session itself as I believe that building a quality partnership will benefit the client’s ultimate goal.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    · Ten years of coaching experience; coached 1,000+ individuals. · Ph.D. Industrial and Organizational Psychology, College of Business, University of Tennessee, U.S. · M.A. Strategic Human Resource Management, University of Salamanca, Spain · M.A. Organizational and Economical Psychology, University of Bucharest, Romania · B.A. Psychology, University of Bucharest, Romania
