Welcome to the Prime of Your Life

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?


Now that the YWCA is open, Claire Marchiano is offering both small group workshops onsite at the YWCA and personal, one-on-one career coaching sessions over the phone.  You can find the group workshop schedule and sign up for one-on-one career coaching right on the YWCA website. To sign up for virtual coaching, 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 $25 annual fee. Then the first 30-minute session is free! Additional appointments will be $25/appointment.

More about Virtual Coaching

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: Monday and Wednesday 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.
