Gain the advantage

Networking and interviews are the critical action moments in your job search. They are the conversations where you build common ground and trust with the people you want to hire you. And remember, 80% or more of jobs are found through networking.

Getting comfortable and confident

Networking lands you the Interview. The Interview lands you the Job. Don’t you want to ensure that you are comfortable and confident in these critical conversations?

The good news is that only a small percentage of people make the investment to be properly prepared. If you invest in yourself, this becomes your competitive advantage.

Interviewing and networking well is a skill. It's not usually something you are born with. Asking for more pay or being questioned about uncomfortable topics can trigger all kinds of confusing emotions. Questions like: Tell me about your pandemic self. What are your salary expectations? What would your greatest challenge be in this role?

Practicing your best responses, together with your coach and other professionals, builds in an all-important feedback loop, and your ability to think on your feet in networking and interview situations. Spend less time feeling rejected and more time creating positive wins in your search.

What people are saying about Martina

"Getting laid off during Covid19 was a difficult transition for me. When Martina stepped in, I was pretty frustrated with my lack of progress in my job search; I was not getting interviews or any feedback from prospective employers. Martina helped me get back on my feet and my head back in the game. As a career coach, Martina is goal-oriented, knowledgeable, and patient. I would highly recommend Martina to anyone looking to make a career transition."

If you're looking for ways to improve your personal and professional performance, I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Martina!"

MotivationFinder™ is a user-friendly and scientifically validated self-assessment that helps you reach your full potential through the power of self-motivation. You will

  • discover your motivations, why you do the things you do,
  • learn what success truly means for YOU,
  • understand your career personality,
  • harness the power of your motives to achieve dream goals,
  • uncover your hidden and costly self-sabotaging behaviors,
  • learn what you need most from your relationships (in business and life) and how to communicate that,
  • see concrete proof of change.

This assessment is on its own platform and includes a full teaching course. You will have life-long free access to your results and can work with them at any point in your career.

  • As part of your job search, you will be networking and interviewing with a diverse group of people. Group sessions help you learn and practice with different people from different professions, in a low risk, positive environment. You will see how different people receive your message, allowing you to make choices for change and find a delivery style that will work best for you and others.
  • Group sessions are offered on a weekly basis with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 participants to ensure the best learning experience.
  • The session begins with a round table check-in to practice your professional introduction, and time permitting, receive feedback.
  • Calls may have a 10 to 15-minute best-practices presentation to address a specific topic or a facilitated discussion on topics brought forward by the participants. Depending on the participants needs, topic examples may include targeting your interview responses, answering tough questions as brought forward by the participants. For example: the salary question, what have you done to cope during the pandemic, what did you learn about yourself during times of isolation, what remote work skills have you learned, why should we hire you, etc.
  • A review of related interview approaches - behavior based, case, and panel interviews, etc. will be covered in one or more of the sessions as related questions arise.
  • A 10-minute break, to refresh and prepare.
  • Following the break, you will move into breakout sessions to have the opportunity to put your learning into practice. Generally, you will receive feedback on how your responses are received by others and positive suggestions on how you can improve your delivery.
  • Once in the breakout group, each group will have 1 to 3 prepared topic-related questions to choose from and practice. Each person will rotate through the role of speaker, listener, and witness.
  • The breakout groups will be returned to the large group to share learning, Q&A and wrap-up.

Providing 24 hour advanced notice is important to respect the time of the coach and the other participants. Your participation is important to the learning of the group as well as yourself. We ask for your commitment to a learning team, no different than a team in the workplace.

We recognize that life happens and sometimes cancelling is unavoidable. Arrangements may be made to attend at an alternative time in urgent/emergency situations only.

You will get a welcome email with a Calendly link where you can pick the days and times that work best for you. If the times listed do not work, you can contact your coach to schedule times that do.
