“Fatou hosted a masterclass for a group of international participants from 51 different countries. The group was highly impressed by both Fatou’s professionalism and the content of her presentation. Fatou is kind, knowledgeable, and professional. I highly recommend consulting with Fatou if you are planning a career change and need a strategy to reach your goals.”
"I had the utmost pleasure of working with Fatou for a webinar I was putting together on the topic of Mentoring. Her enthusiasm was unmatched, the dedication she put towards sharing the right information for our migrant participants showcased her passion for helping and supporting others. I will highly recommend Fatou for her vision, hard work and the knowledge she has to share."
"Fatou animated a CV Masterclass for the InterNations Cork community and the attendees appreciated her expertise, patience and availability - to the question if i would recommend her to help you getting confidence, clarity and elaborating your strategy to land your dream job, my answer is a BIG YES!"
"Thanks to Fatou’s tips and enthusiastic approach in her coaching, I gained immense confidence in my own job searching, and utilised many of her techniques in interview preparation. All of this resulted in receiving an exciting job offer in a prestigious law firm in Dublin. I would highly recommend Fatou’s workshop to anyone who needs that positive lift and resources that will help you find that new amazing job that you deserve."
"I took part in Fatou’s course which helped me to better understand the (Irish) job market, how to use LinkedIn effectively and to successfully improve my application and interview skills. Fatou is very knowledgeable and I found her advice immensely helpful. Her presentations and work sheets are very well structured and almost like a step-by-step guide. I would definitely book the course again and can highly recommend Fatou as a Career Coach."
