You can be in your prime during all stages of life. The strengths and skills you’ve developed can be applied in different ways at different phases throughout your career.

What’s the next step in your journey?

GET A FRESH START IN YOUR CAREER LIFE!  

While the YWCA Berkeley/Oakland building is closed, Claire Marchiano is offering personal, one-on-one career coaching sessions over the phone.  You can sign up right on the website under the Career Coaching Tab. There is a short profile section to fill out including the question of whether or not you are a member of the YWCA Berkeley-Oakland. If you are not, you will receive a prompt to join for a modest $20 annual fee. Then the first 30-minute session is free! Additional appointments will be $25/appointment.

As a NBCC Certified Career Counselor and former Career Center Coordinator at EASTBAY Works Concord, Claire brings wide experience working with clients of diverse backgrounds, education, fields and levels of experience.

Session Availability: Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and other times by prior arrangement. 

What topics will we discuss?

This session will be personalized to your needs! Are you considering a career move because of COVID-19 and feeling stuck? Do you know what you want but could use some help coming up with new strategies? Are you discouraged and need a job search partner? Claire will provide guidance and resources accordingly. 

Here at the YWCA she usually facilitates 24 small personalized workshops with titles such as:

  • Get the Job You Want
  • 10 Steps to a Successful Career Transition
  • Create a Personal Brand for Your Job Search
  • Is Your Resume Working for You?
  • Make Your Career Comeback
  • Creating Your Employment Proposal
  • Find Employers that Need You
