Hi, I'm Victoria
I am not only a Career Coach, I am someone who is passionate about finding you your dream job! I started my recruiting career 10 years ago at a small boutique staffing firm as a Lead Sourcer, which is just a fancy way of saying I was searching for talented professionals. Because of my extensive experience as a Corporate Recruiter and in Staffing, I have the knowledge to help job seekers navigate their search.
Coaching was an organic evolution as a result of the pandemic. As the job market became unstable, many of my friends and family were reaching out for resume help, interview tips, and general advice on how they could set themselves apart in the competitive market. I realized if you are not in this field it can be difficult to know how to navigate the market and stand out to employers.
My business is to work with real humans as a real human. I am someone who genuinely cares about your goals, listens to your desires, empathizes with your struggles and helps you determine what you want out of your career. When we partner together, I will share all the recruiter secrets, from buzzwords on resumes to interview preps to how to negotiate a hiring salary.
