What others say about us

After 10 years in the same company, I need help for my next career step. From the first meeting with Signe, I was impressed by her professional approach and her extensive knowledge of the different industries, with advices tailored to me, my purpose and my values, making me feel supported and understood. She was also key in improving my resume, making it more impactful and comprehensible. I’ll definitely reach out to her for the interviews preparation!
Head of Marketing
Signe made a list of possible interview questions in advance so from the moment we started the practice I felt I was in a real job interview! After the mock interview, she kindly taught me how to explain my strengths, work history, and reasons for seeking a job that would leave a lasting impression on the interviewer. She also taught me how to ask questions to the interviewer, techniques for negotiating salary and working conditions and gave me advice on various aspects of the job interview. As a result, I received a job offer from my first choice company and was able to successfully negotiate my salary! What was most reassuring was that Signe believed in my potential 100%, pushed me and gave me the strength to believe in myself. If you don't know how to appeal at a job interview or how to negotiate with HR, or if you're not sure if you can succeed in changing jobs, please consult with Signe!
Strategy Consultant
I highly recommend Signe as a career coach. She patiently sits with you and simulates an interview, making sure to ask challenging questions as if it were a real interview. She is very helpful in picking out little details and mannerisms that you do not notice yourself. Her feedback was instrumental to me heading into the interview process with greater confidence.
