Career Coaching Success Stories

Career Coaching Programs

Elena helped bring clarity, focus and direction.

“Elena helped bring clarity, focus and direction. Leading a team is difficult at the best of times, but trying to do so in the middle of a pandemic adds several more layers. In helping me, she essentially helped my team by making me a stronger, more understanding, empathetic and driven leader.”
Liesel Unger

I feel strengthened in my confidence and well prepared for my new position!

“Elena is an excellent coach who guided me beyond the approach I thought I should take. I contracted her to coach me in a career change decision, and in current standards of the job application process. I had in mind updating my resume and cover letter. (I might have been an unusual client because I am older and had already had a long career as a self-employed business owner. Now I was considering returning to being an employee; often it happens the other way around.) But she guided me in more ways than in the details of the application; she helped me review my career to date, identify my accomplishments and my personal vision, and to set high level goals for the future. I feel strengthened in my confidence and well prepared for my new position!”

I want to thank Elena Giorgetti, my career coach, for supporting me through the interview and negotiation process with mastery: her effective feedback and coaching expertise are also the reason I successfully landed this role. I am thrilled about this new chapter in my career and look forward to joining such an innovative and great organization such as Amazon. Thanks again Elena for all your help!”

I feel so much more confident in my ability to make decisions.

“I contacted Elena because I felt unclear about my next career steps and overwhelmed by the prospect of making a change. She really helped me narrow my focus so that I could concentrate on what I really wanted, rather than the things I didn’t want. She always asked amazing questions that really caused me to dig deeper into what I was looking for, and created a friendly environment for me to ask questions and be honest. Plus she had great practical advice for job searching, applications, and interviewing. I would recommend Elena to people who want to make a change but have no idea where to start. I feel so much more confident in my ability to make decisions, and less overwhelmed by all the “what-ifs” that come along with making changes.”

The experience was “work” and certainly worth it!

“I contacted Elena Giorgetti at “Make an Impact Career Coaching” for support with the initial stages of a career change. Elena helped me by guiding me with information, and also useful tips and exercises that encouraged a revaluation of my skill-set and of my professional aspirations. Our work allowed important self-reflection regarding my personal values and career interests. The outcome was overwhelmingly positive. I gained a greater understanding of my professional identity, and gained confidence in the way I approach job searches. The experience was “work” and certainly worth it!”

After our sessions I was able to identify a clear path.

I contacted Elena Giorgetti at “Make an Impact Career Coaching” because I wanted to figure out what would help me feel fulfilled within a career. I was at a point in my life where I experienced a wide range of roles, but nothing truly felt right, and I wanted to uncover what would help me fill that space. Elena helped me discover what I’m really looking for and what I value. She was able to guide me on how to uncover necessary information regarding achieving a career I truly wanted. After our sessions I was able to identify a clear path that would lead me towards achieving the goal that I set for myself. What really worked for me was figuring out what I valued and aligning it to potential roles and companies, as well as connecting to people within similar roles to learn more about that space. The experience was enlightening. Sometimes the answer can be in front of your face and you don’t even know it. Elena will not give you the answer but will work side by side with you and give you the necessary tools and support to find what you are looking for. I would not recommend Elena to someone who is not ready to put in the work towards fixing the problem they are facing. I would recommend Elena to someone who is ready to start a new chapter in their lives and who is motivated to take a proactive step towards developing a career plan. She is dedicated to her clients and is passionate at what she does, and she will work alongside you to help you reach your goals. I would definitely work with her again!

She equipped me with the tools I needed to feel confident putting myself forward for a range of roles in different sectors

After moving to Vancouver from the UK, I needed help to understand the local job market and Canadian recruitment norms. Elena took a genuine interest in my situation and tailored a series of sessions to meet my needs. She brought a wealth of professional and personal experience and equipped me with the tools and knowledge I needed to feel confident putting myself forward for a range of roles in different sectors. I had expected I would have to compromise with my first job in Canada, but after my sessions with Elena I was able to secure a role with my preferred employer that was an excellent match for my skills. If you aren't sure what your next steps need to be, I am confident that Elena will be able to help you find a way forward.
