I wanted to let you know I landed a new job! I could not be more excited all around. I attribute this success to the time we had together, the legendary ah-ha moment, and your helpful guidance. You are truly a success story and made this career transition possible for me. I thought I would share the news, and of course now when people ask I know where to point them. 😁 Everyone I have talked to pointed out that you were truly an inflection point for me and I am forever grateful.

Emily gave me the boost I needed to continue my job search with confidence! She offered actionable guidance to help me enhance my resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and overall job search strategy. As a senior recruiter, Emily was able to provide feedback through the lens of someone well experienced in the hiring process. Following the session, Emily sent additional resources for further support. I highly recommend sessions with Emily if you’re looking for feedback, actionable advice, and even moral support to help you feel confident and empowered in your job search. Thank you, Emily!!

Meet our job search coaches

Emily Stanek Pollak brings a decade of experience as a recruiter to her work as a career coach. She knows what hiring teams look for and how to make you stand out as a candidate.

As a recruiter, she spent countless hours sitting with hiring managers and diving deep to understand what they look for in candidates. She also perfected her ability to coach candidates through phone screens, interview prep conversations, and job offer negotiations.

Emily transitioned from recruiting to coaching when she realized that she was most passionate about helping people find fulfilling jobs, rather than filling jobs for companies. She now brings all of her experience and expertise from the “other side” of the interview process to help you land your dream job.

With over a decade of experience as an organizational consultant, Amanda Halabi has interviewed for and landed roles in over 20 Fortune 500 organizations and successful start-ups across deeply diverse industries.

When she began managing her own cross-functional teams, her role shifted, giving her behind-the-scenes access to what makes candidates rise to the top and stand out amongst the crowd.

This shift in perspective ignited a fire within, and Amanda knew she wanted to spend her energy supporting job searchers identify and perfect their own unique qualities that make them shine. With experience as a recruiter, hiring manager, and team builder, Amanda now employs years of honed experience to the people she is most passionate to support.

After the 1st session: “Our call was so helpful to me in changing my attitude and giving me action steps. I seriously can’t thank you enough!!! It’s like fog has cleared from in front of me. I’m going to work on all of this over the next couple weeks and set up another session.”

During the coaching process: “I was invited to a 2nd round interview on Monday morning 🙂 YAY! So excited. Thank you SO much for your help! The interview was almost entirely my elevator pitch and a few questions; I’m very grateful I had your help with this.”

Upon receiving an offer: “I was just extended an offer! I am THRILLED and cannot stop smiling. Thank you so much for your help, I feel like I could not have done this without your guidance.”

After starting the new job: “The new job is going great!! Negotiations worked out exactly like I wanted them to. It has been so wonderful so far – flexible, everyone is super friendly and welcoming! They even adjusted my schedule so I work Tuesday – Friday and have Mondays off through December. I can’t believe this is my job!!”

I just attained the best job offer in a career I wanted but NEVER thought was possible, and have an outlook of renewed hope and clarity. Not like what I doing before was bad – but it was just not ME.


Science Teacher, San Francisco


Marketing Strategist, San Francisco

I was looking to make a career change. I had lots of ideas about what I could do next, but I didn’t have clarity around what I should do. Amazingly, after two months, I was on a clear career path and had a new awesome job offer which I accepted. It’s been an incredible experience.

Job Coach FAQs

Looking for more information about our job search coaching services? If there’s something we can’t answer here, don’t hesitate to contact our team.

What is a job coach?

A job search coach is a professional who helps people with any employment impediments to discover, secure, and keep fulfilling jobs. Their main responsibility is to offer individualized support and direction to their clients so they may effectively navigate the job search process, acquire job-related skills, and acclimate to the workplace.

At A Path That Fits, we are both life coaches and career coaches, and we approach careers somewhat differently. We see your line of work as a venue for you to share your gifts with the world. You may pinpoint your innate strengths and passions and use them to locate the appropriate profession with the aid of our ground-breaking career pathfinding methodology. To identify the best career coach for your needs, speak with Amanda today.

What is a good job coach?

Job coaches that are successful are adaptable. When necessary, they know how to modify what they are teaching to fit the learner’s abilities or external limits. Successful job coaches are receptive to differing viewpoints. They are aware of and tolerant of personality differences.

What is an example of job coaching?

A client may start work with a job coach to identify their fears and come up with coping mechanisms. For instance, a job coach might assist a worker who is anxious about collaborating with a new team in learning effective communication, appropriate introductions, and teamwork.

A job ‘search’ coach is more involved in the process of obtaining work or improving your current work. Our job search coaches provide guidance in areas such as job searching, skill development, interview preparation, and workplace integration, with the ultimate goal of enhancing your independence and success in the workforce.

Will job search coaching work for me?

The best way to figure out if coaching is going to work for you is to have a free consultation with Amanda or Emily. They can answer all of your questions and give you a fair assessment of what it takes to land your dream job. They can also advise you about whether 1:1 Job Search Coaching or the Dream Job Online Course is a better fit for you.
