Sarah andrus testimonials

Hear from my clients

Working with Sarah on defining the next step in my career has been very positive. The methodology she uses to identify personal strengths and potential sources of stress in work environments is extremely insightful and accurate. The tools we have used allowed me to hone in on what to look for and what to avoid in new opportunities. In addition, her guidance in the process of interviews and interview feedback was also very helpful. I highly recommend investing in yourself and engaging Sarah as your partner in a job search or career reset. Even with a good personal support system, it is so much more manageable to go through the often long and sometime difficult process with the extra support of a strong career coach, like Sarah.

Sarah helped me negotiate the terms of the offer which exceeded my initial expectations.

I was referred to Sarah through a contact in my network. I was at a point where I was actively looking for a new job. I had spent a year of applying to jobs online on my own without making much progress and knew there had to be a more efficient way. After my initial consultation with Sarah and through my referral I knew that Sarah had a wealth of knowledge that would be valuable in my job search. The exercises and assessments that Sarah utilized throughout the program were very helpful in confirming what type of work environment / industry were best suited for my strengths. Sarah was very instrumental in taking the fear out of the most important job search technique…. Networking! Having regularly scheduled touch bases with Sarah pushed me to make progress each week throughout my job search. She also was very instrumental throughout the interview process by helping me prepare for interview questions and helping me formulate my accomplishments into a concise story. Finally once I received a job offer, Sarah helped me negotiate the terms of the offer which exceeded my initial expectations. Overall, working with Sarah was extremely beneficial in helping me navigate the ups and downs of my job search and ultimately landing a new job in just a couple months time.

I felt Sarah’s commitment to genuinely want to assist me with my future business goals

I heard Sarah on a podcast and was so grateful when she agreed to take the time to discuss my future entrepreneurial dream.

She helped me identify actionable steps to help me make this dream real. I love her story and pathway from start up to where she is now and I learned a lot from hearing more about the details.

Sarah also made some great recommendations for reading.  Even though this was our first meeting she made the conversation flow and I felt her commitment to genuinely want to assist me with my future business goals. I was inspired and have already begun to implement the actions we discussed.

Sarah’s compassion and supportive approach on the Zoom call allowed us to build instant rapport and really focus on career/business goals. You can tell Sarah really cares about people.

I worked with Sarah as a communication coach. She helped me assess and understand my communication style via the Birkman Method. By using this tool and with Sarah providing her own thoughts, interpretations and analysis, it allowed me to gain a greater understanding of my own communication style and therefore, how to communicate and work with others much more effectively. Sarah has also helped me craft exactly what to say in certain situations which I have found very beneficial. I’d highly recommend Sarah as a communications coach to anyone looking to improve their professional communication skills.

Working with Sarah Andrus is like working with a swiss army knife of career coaching. She has many tools and resources to offer. Ultimately, she helped me figure out what it is that I really wanted from my career and then gave me tools, hints and tricks on how to go out and get it. Along with that process I also received her unwavering support. I really enjoyed her professionalism, her quick thinking and her ability to relate to me on many different levels. I would highly recommend working with her because she brings a level of focus to your career search that is top notch. I am glad I made the choice to work with her.”

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.

At our first meeting, I was moved by Sarah’s warmth, powerful questions, and incredible insight. The very first exercise she gave me opened me up to a world of new possibilities, and I’ve been thinking about my skills and gifts differently ever since.  Sarah’s guidance has been invaluable in my career change.

The very first exercise she gave me opened me up to a world of new possibilities, and I’ve been thinking about my skills and gifts differently ever since.  Sarah’s guidance has been invaluable in my career change.

I came to Sarah as a working adult with minimal college education in my background. My hope was to get some clear answers about what to do next. Sarah didn’t give me answers; she gave me tools, which has been much more valuable. As we worked together, she helped me to assess and identify my interests, motivations, goals, and skills. Sarah then referenced these things in our meetings as she introduced methods to apply this information to my plans.

When I came to Sarah, I felt as though I was “all over the place” in possibilities and ideas. The possibilities are still there, but I am much more organized and focused in how to approach them. 

There’s only so much that Googling can do for a person when one is exploring career options. Sarah, with patience, organization, and expertise, helps her clients to navigate the possibilities and leaves them able to continue the journey on their own. I am very grateful for her guidance and have gladly referred friends and colleagues to her. She will be the person I turn to if I am considering a career change again in the future!
