Career Coaching - Avarah Careers

Navigating today’s job market is challenging.

Get proven strategies and expert guidance.

Hi, I’m Sarah Andrus and I’ve been on all sides of the hiring equation.

I am a career REBEL!

I define my work.

My career is in my hands.

I stand up for who I am and how I contribute to the greater good.

I will invest my portfolio of knowledge, skills, and abilities where they will earn the most significant return.

This is my professional creed and vow – and my clients share this commitment. There’s no need to spend your adult life toiling away miserably in a role that doesn’t fit. 

Maybe you’ve got a high stakes interview coming up and you want to make sure you’re prepared. Or, you’ve decided to make a job change and you don’t know where to start. 

Maybe you’re working in an environment that’s become toxic. 

Or, perhaps you’ve got this inner voice telling you that you could be doing more and earning more as you watch others around you advance professionally while you feel stuck.

Your long-term income and job satisfaction depend on a smart and directed career strategy. The good news? You don’t have to do this alone. The really good news? Unlike many career coaching options and online support, Avarah clients work with me, personally.

My approach is tailored to you. I adjust to your needs as we move along and as I get to know you better. This means you can be assured you’re going to have the help you need, when you need it, to land the job you want.

Going through the process of being laid off can be very traumatic

Going through the process of being laid off can be very traumatic. It was for me. Luckily, after just a few weeks of being unemployed, a mutual friend told me I should meet Sarah. I had never used a career coach before, and wasn’t really sure what they did. Sarah’s warm personality and compassionate approach made it easy to trust her right away. Previously in her career she had worked for several large companies, met with much success, and yet knew first-hand what it feels like to get laid off.

My first task was to take the Birkman Assessment. Sarah and I went over the results and I re-discovered several things about myself that I had lost over 15 years of working for the same company. Sarah helped me to take inventory of my skills and my passions which put me on a completely different career path. She gave me homework after every meeting, which added much needed structure to my week. After several sessions with Sarah I felt back on my feet again and full of confidence to start the next chapter of my career.

I currently split my time between academic research and being the owner of a small chemical consulting business. I’m happier than I’ve been in at least a decade, and I owe a large debt to Sarah for helping me navigate through this time of disequilibrium.

Job hunting? Spend your time wisely

As I sat down to write to you, I was feeling frustrated. So much so that, after questioning why, I changed my mind about what I wanted to share in my message today. I had a, “Wait, what?” moment for several days in a row talking to people about what they’ve been doing...

Is Your Need For Certainty Paralyzing You?

My friends can tell you that I agonize over making decisions, especially big ones. When I’m in the thick of it, I’m looking for certainty. I want to be sure! I think this is rooted in childhood, when everything we did was either “right” or “wrong.” There were never...

Should you take the offer?

After job hunting for months, we hope and dream about the day when we finally get an offer for the job we want. We imagine giving notice (maybe finally saying all those things we wish we could have said before - not usually a good idea BTW, unless HR has a formal exit...
