CAREER COACHING & MENTORING
“After a dozen courses and seminars, I still felt lost in finding my first job in Finland. Pointer Potential’s personal career coaching sessions were extremely helpful at structuring my mind and setting the targets, scrupulously going through all the details in my CV and cover letters. I highly recommend it!”
“Be yourself! Be teachable! My coaching sessions were intense, insightful and practical, which resulted in two job interviews within one month. Of course, a diligent spirit and positive attitude are always a win and will set you apart.”
Zee, Zindaba – Zambia
“Pointer Potential’s career coaching has made a significant change in progressing towards my dream job. It is difficult for a foreigner to get hired in the Finnish job market. During the process, we become so aggressive to secure our survival, that we lose ourselves sometimes. My coach Steven ter Horst guided me to discover myself again to get back on track and to have the confidence to proceed towards it. He is also continuously helping me to build up my network and giving the opportunity to learn from the pioneers in the Finnish business market in my preferred field.”
