Two-hour Workshops have the purpose to provide targeted information on a specific topic related to career development, job search, entrepreneurship and other aspects in the most cost-effective way as they allow a limited to group of individuals to attend. They are also a good set up to learn and develop in an encouraging environment of like-minded people as well as to network and broaden your career options.

Success Stories

Even as an American with advanced education and professional skills, trying to crack the Belgian job market seemed daunting to the point of despair. In the space of a single Skype call, Elissavet totally changed my perspective and sense of possibility. Not only was she able to inspire confidence that I could find work suited to my background and goals, but she also had concrete suggestions for potential employers, with some of whom she was able to put me in contact. Of course, Belgium remains a tough job market for foreigners, so my eventual success or failure depends neither upon myself nor Elissavet. However, thanks to her, I now feel as though I have a fighting chance.

My career counselling experience with Elissavet has been really positive. She not only provided me guidance to pinpoint my interests, likes, dislikes, and career aspirations, but also discussed with me in detailed sessions the different steps involved in searching for a job. Her extensive experience in the Belgian market is another major plus, especially for expats.

Saba, Belgium
PhD student and expat

I am a professional with a long career in and outside Belgium. Never had been job seeking for last 10 years but now feel the urge to do so. Because of the ‘gap’ I was not really prepared for the actual recruiting methods and procedures, felt unsecure and unprepared. The counselling has helped me a lot, both by regaining skills and confidence. Through the sessions Elissavet reminded me of assets I possess though had forgotten when preparing my documents or (future) interviews, she triggered my potential.

T.A.D., Belgium
Education professional

Advice on the CV and motivation letter was very helpful. As a foreigner living in Europe for the first time and trying to find jobs, advice on the CV format in English and important points to be reflected was very insightful. It would definitely help me preparing for finding future jobs. Through the sessions, now I am clearer about my future steps, and also gained better understanding on what are the important points when I apply for jobs.

I found Elissavet to be welcoming and friendly, both during and before/after the sessions. She tailored the sessions to my specific needs and this was both helpful and appreciated.

L. B., Belgium
Communications specialist

I had the pleasure of having 2 career counseling sessions with Elissavet @TheCoach.Team, and I experienced the sessions as very useful, eye opening and pleasant. By giving me direct feedback and handing me a tool that can help me to funnel down my future opportunities, I gained lots of energy and enthusiasm to actually start working on my future career plans. Elissavet’s approach is very professional and handed me, in the short time we had, the necessary tools and insights. I hoped to get feedback on what approach and strategy I should follow, as 55+er, to start looking for new career opportunities. It has delivered more than expected

Through this couching I realized how many skills and valuable experiences I have and how to take advantage of them. After each session I felt motivate and eager to find the job that I deserve according to my work experience and my studies. They were those advices that helped me to visualize other fields where I could fit as a professional.

Elissavet @TheCoach.Team had very actionable points that were personalized to my current CV. She also gave good tips on how to write a motivational letter, and generally what kind of a job is worth spending the time applying to. I like the way she went straight to the topic and used the time to talk concretely about what was good and what could be improved upon.

M.D.L., Belgium
Expat teacher and translator

When I started career counselling with Elissavet @TheCoach.Teams, I was quite lost about my (career) life, I was full of thoughts, without a clear idea of which option to take. I really enjoyed the way she guided me through the introspection questions and how this brought some clarity for me. It helped me to realise (reminded me) what I like doing, what I’m good at and what is truly important to me. I appreciated very much the realistic and pragmatic approach of Elissavet while at the same time the encouragement to pursue my dream. I came without clear expectations of what would be the final ‘result’ of this counseling and I am happy the way it turned out for me.
