COACHING TESTIMONIALS

“Sarah is both personable and professional. She helped me to target my job search and resume in a way that allowed me to get significant traction, gave me confidence while pointing out things that I needed to work on, and gave me hope throughout the process. She was especially helpful with networking and interview preparations. I truly believe that without her counseling I would still be looking for a job.”

— Lawrence Weissman

“I worked with Sarah during a recent job change and credit her career and job search coaching as a major factor in my success.

With her high intellect, superior communication skills, and her open and engaging style, Sarah works very effectively with job search candidates to help set and accomplish their goals. At group meetings, Sarah provides very valuable information in an entertaining and engaging manner. Candidates invariably leave feeling uplifted, well informed, and motivated to apply her job search tools. Sarah is exceptionally well connected and current, and stands apart from others in her field. I highly recommend Sarah.”

— Gilbert “Chip” Donovan

“I wanted to say thank you so much for the advice and our meeting about 18 months ago. It was for an hour and a half, but you changed my life in so many different ways. I have been meaning to email you with my current update. An MBA is still in the future, however, I now know why I will be doing the MBA.”

— Aina Fadina

PUBLIC SPEAKING TESTIMONIALS

JPMorgan Chase LinkedIn Presentation:

“Nearly 80 Financial Women’s Association members and guests gathered at this sold-out event to hear career coach Sarah Stamboulie, head of Stamboulie Career Consulting, teach us how to leverage the LinkedIn professional networking site for business development, job hunting and research. Stamboulie’s program included a live demonstration of LinkedIn features including how to set up a profile and initiating and accepting invitations. She explained how to build a network of primary contacts and how to discover and access a broader network; her own 304 first-degree connections yield over 2 million third-degree contacts! Stamboulie’s engaging, informal style encouraged questions and produced a highly interactive session. Stamboulie gave current users great tips for making LinkedIn work for them and the newbies confidence to dive in and get started. There was more to discover than time allowed, and we’re hoping to offer a follow up sometime next year.”

ING Employee Development Workshop Series:

“Thank you, Sarah! I really loved your presentation about LinkedIn and I am really looking forward to the MBTI presentation.”

Ivy Exec LinkedIn Program:

“The turnout for your seminar was the highest we’ve had, and the response to your presentation was absolutely amazing.”

Columbia Business School Alumni Negotiation Seminar:

“I thought Sarah Stamboulie was really great. She was entertaining and informative. I couldn’t believe the time flew by so fast (in fact, the clock hadn’t been adjusted for daylight savings time, and I had no problem believing two hours had flown by so quickly with such a good speaker).”
