About Yvonne Cohen
THE POWER OF BEING PREPARED
After a diverse career in the private and public sectors and most recently in the outplacement and career transition environment, Yvonne Cohen is now a widely consulted, respected and experienced career coach. Yvonne’s success has been built on the values of hard work and genuine care – she understands jobseekers’ uncertainty and anxiety and the emotional rollercoaster they are on, and knows what is required for the journey to find and secure the jobs they want.
Yvonne has experienced the challenge of three redundancies and the highs and lows of transitioning between industries and careers.
"My goal is to assist jobseekers identify and connect with their core values, realistically assess opportunities and develop an action plan to successfully transition into a new career. I want to reach as many people as possible and assist them to get clarity on their career journey and set their goals in line with their values and priorities."
To achieve her objective of becoming a dedicated career coach who makes a real difference to people at a particularly challenging point in their lives, she completed a double degree in counselling and coaching.
Over the years, Yvonne has worked with a diverse range of roles and individuals at all levels across multiple industry sectors. She has helped hundreds of people develop the skills and personal profile necessary for success in their job search and to set them on satisfying career paths.
Yvonne says: “With so much information out there, I have seen jobseekers become overwhelmed, failing to pull it all together to create a compelling professional profile that puts them in a winning position. As a result, their self-confidence is affected, leaving them frustrated and confused.”
CareerFiX is the culmination of Yvonne’s journey, the embodiment of her relentless drive and desire to help more people adopt proven and effective strategies, adapt them to their personal styles and needs and develop the self-confidence to succeed in securing the jobs and careers of their choice.
