Coaches have a mixed reputation in our society. This is so because a few of them –mostly "life" coaches– have given a bad name to the craft, taking advantage of desperate people. However, there is a kind of coach whose advice and guidance can really help someone revamp their career, change it, and fulfill their professional goals. Angela Juang belongs to this group.
I am a career changer. Like many others, during the pandemic, I realized that the professional path I had walked for almost 15 years was not the right for me. I was not satisfied with my achievements and unhappy with the possibilities ahead. I was finishing a Ph.D. but needed to figure out how or if I could be applied outside the field I had been for so long.
Angela Juang showed me all the possibilities I had in front of me. She helped me uncover and understand the industry, the world of techs, social media, and software companies. She encouraged me to explore new horizons, different sectors, and fields and joined me in the task. Through self-reflection, introspection, and energy assessment exercises, Angela made me realize all my skills and abilities and how to translate them into other fields. She allowed me to understand that what I know and have done is useful in different fields and areas. More than that, Angela Juang also helped me see that there were things I still needed to learn and encouraged me to do them.
Thanks to all this, I applied for jobs and had interviews (though for issues beyond our control, they had to stop), and now I am embarked on the adventure of studying an M.S. in Information Science. Most of what I did and accomplished in 2022, both in personal and professional terms, was because Angela coached me. If you need a career revamp, feel stocked, or want to change fields, talk to Angela. She will make a difference.
