I Help You Simplify The Career Change Process
Gain Clarity and Confidence in Your Career Path with Personalized Coaching Services
As a career coach, I know firsthand how overwhelming and challenging it can be to navigate a career transition. That's because I've been there myself. When I was in my late forties, I experienced burnout and knew I needed to make a change. I made the difficult decision to leave a 25-year career that I loved without a plan, hoping that I would figure out what I wanted to do next.
I spent hours at my computer, scrolling through job postings and updating my resume. But I wasn't getting anywhere. I found myself looking at jobs that resembled my old job because it felt safe, but my heart knew that wasn't what I really wanted.
It wasn't until I got clarity about my career and life goals that I stopped wasting time and money trying to figure it out on my own. That clarity made all the difference, and I knew I wanted to help others find that same clarity and fulfillment in their careers.
That's why I became a career coach. I am passionate about helping others achieve their full potential and find satisfaction in their work and life. I provide guidance and support in a range of areas, including job search strategies, resume building, interview skills, networking, career transitions, professional development, self-leadership, work-life balance, and more.
My own experience of going through a career transition and working with other clients has taught me that everyone's career journey is unique. That's why I tailor my coaching services to your individual needs and goals. I work with you to identify your values, strengths, and life and career aspirations. We develop a plan to achieve them.
By working with me, you will build self-confidence, stay accountable to your career development goals, and gain clarity about your career and life path. I provide guidance on training and professional development opportunities and help you overcome any fears and challenges that may be holding you back.
If you're ready to take the first step towards a fulfilling and successful career, I invite you to contact me today. Let's work together to achieve your career goals and find the satisfaction and fulfillment you deserve.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It's common for women to doubt themselves and either not see themselves as qualified or worthy. After a few sessions with Ligia, you will understand you were ready for the job all along.
I appreciate your honesty and clarity! I think your thoughts about my CV, cover letter and linkedIn were all spot on, and all built on each other.
I learned that I am not fully ready to jump into anything that takes a lot of my time, especially after the year that I have had. Volunteering and dipping my toe in appears to be the next best step for enhancing my clarity. Thank you so much!
