finding a great job doesn't have to be hard!

With 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.
