ABOUT US

Welcome to Breakthrough Career Coaching. We help people find and land the job that brings satisfaction, purpose and joy.

Perhaps right now you are having a hard time deciding what major/school to choose, or receiving no job offers after sending out many resumes; or feeling dissatisfied with your current employer. Whatever the case, we are glad you are looking for a change. 

A person who works in a field that she/he enjoys and is good at tends to be more satisfied in life. I am not surprised because people spend about 2080 hours per year at work (for a full-time job) and more if you run your own business; so finding and keeping the right job is not only recommended but critical for a person's success and well-being. However, not everyone takes the time and ponder about the "why" questions before making a career decision, nor are they equipped with the resources and tools to pursue their career aspirations. It takes full self-awareness, proper mind-set and strategy to achieve job search success. 

That is what we are here for -  bringing clarity to your career vision with the guided self-narative approach and equipping you with the right tools and skills to reach your desired career goal. 

 

Thanks for considering us to help you embark upon the challenging job search journey. We can't wait to hear your story and help you get THE job that meets your needs and fits you the best.

Thank you. I learned not only (how to) write resume etc. but also about networking, self-esteem and how to stay positive through such trying times. My self esteem, sense of confidence and accomplishments has increased greatly. I enjoyed learning self-affirmation; "body breaks" ice breakers, Hollands' code, watching videos, role plays, also doing activities really help solidify things. Now I am hopeful/ confident that at least 1-2 employers will respond to me.

What I really liked is working in groups and pairs as apposed to just listening to information; I also enjoyed learning the subtleties of answering the interview questions. Ning is resourceful and fun to talk with.

Ning has a super cheery personality!!! :) She is very easy to work with. I really liked being able to apply what we have learned in class during our Job Fair "Field Trips" and getting to know my peers. I learned how to properly craft a resume and cover letter; as well as how to conduct myself during an interview, including proper responses to questions. I am also surprised to learn about the hidden job market. It's one of the most useful workshops.

I contacted Ning because I felt lost in my career and needed guidance with career and job in general. After working with her for about 3 weeks through in-session work and homework, I feel clearer about my traits, characters, strengths, and type of work environment I need. She uses a mix of interpersonal interactions and tests to get to know you, and help you figure out your key ingredients. She has a rough outline of how to go about it but also is flexible based on what her client voices. Compar

I am a educational consultant. Ms. Huang helps my young high school clients to better understand themselves and to have a better sense of future university major selections and career directions. Ms. Huang is knowledgeable and passionate. I rely very much on her professional skills and judgment in this regard to better serve my students in navigating and planning their high school. I highly recommend Ms. Huang's service.

Ning has awesome energy; super encouraging and supportive. Give very constructive feedback. I am definitely more motivated now to find a job. Before meeting her, I was very discouraged and frustrated with my job search process after graduating from SFU. Her confidence in me definitely spurs me on. I have gained a lot of useful skills that will help me in my job search and beyond. More importantly, the skills have helped me gain confidence in my abilities.
