What clients say
Manager, sales & customer service, banking sector
In one of the little-known books I came across a wonderful allegory: “Life – is an unlimited number of cross-roads, on each of which we are faced with a choice: which way to turn and continue our journey.” On one of those crossroads in my life, I met with Ulyana Morokhovskaya. In the situation of economic crisis, I was faced with the need to find a new job in the shortest time and I was indeed confused. But after the first career interview and mini-training with Ulyana I left the office with an absolute internal confidence that under her professional guidance I will find exactly the job I am looking for. Weighty training materials on effective job search skills, which Uliana provided to me and we used during our meetings, for few weeks took the place of my ‘regular-reading’ book. What has given me such confidence? Together with Uliana we have developed comprehensive job search action plan, which was based on understanding of my experience, skills, competencies and expectations from future employer taking into consideration current labor market circumstances. With each our new meeting, I received valuable knowledge and skills. After practicing answering frequently asked interview questions and knowing what interviewers expect from me, I went to the next interview, feeling more confident as a student before an exam, who learned answers all the exam questions. And you won’t believe, during the interview I was asked exactly those questions that I had prepared in advance for. “Incredible!” – I thought! “Predictable!” – answered Uliana. I was aware that the final result depends a lot on my commitment and proactivity. But under Uliana’s guidance my actions become more focused, which necessarily had to lead me to the result. And three weeks after acquaintance with Ulyana I got a job offer with conditions that fully met my expectations! And now I know that whatever is crossroads in my professional career, I will choose Uliana as my career navigator and she which easily and confidently guide me to achieve my goal!

Our cooperation has given me confidence in myself, it also provided me and opportunity to structure my experience, realize my achievements, understand who am I as a professional and where I would like to move further. I got a really useful and practical advice on how to pass an interview, and besides, the detailed preparation for the interviews in a particular company for a specific position. Also, I felt the constant support and I knew I could ask for advice at any time.

I have decided to ask for professional advice on job hunting at the moment when I have decided that I am ready for next career move. I have decided not only to change job, but also to change industry. I knew it was not an easy task, especially given the situation on the labor market. I believe that every person should be expert in his own sphere, HR – this is not my area of expertise so I have decided to get in touch with consultants specializing in career consulting. Uliana was recommended to me by my MBA groupmate. In collaboration with Uliana most important for me was consistent and accurate approach to job search process, regular contact and support, often psychological. Trainings that Uliana provided allowed me to structure accumulated previously experience and understand what employers expect from me during interviews. As a result of our cooperation, I got a new job in an international organization that is fully in line with my expectations. Particularly valuable contribution Uliana did in helping me to prepare each of 4 interviews I have been passing prior to being selected for my current role. Being well-prepared there was no single unexpected questions and I had an impression that interview goes on already known to me script.
