I'm the founder of Careergasm.com, and I believe that everyone (yes, even you!) can pursue mind-blowing work that thrills and delights. As your coach, my job is to help you get to the place you aspire to be.
A bit about me…
I write about careers for Forbes, Huffington Post, and Entrepreneur. I've also been featured in Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail. I studied Executive Management Coaching at the graduate level, and Life Coaching under Dr. Martha Beck, Harvard-educated coaching expert of O Magazine and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
But enough about my resume. Here's what I really want you to know: I love my work and I'm good at what I do. I ask a lot of very good questions, and my clients regularly knock my socks off with their bravery, perseverance, and heart. That means results. Like, BIG results. Like holy-shit-I-never-thought-I-could-be-this-happy results. That could be you. Hell, that SHOULD be you.
I have a down-to-earth and accessible coaching style. My own personal experiences lend a rich and relatable vibe to my coaching practice (we’re humans first, professionals second). My approach to coaching is action-based and puts you in the driver’s seat. So buckle up. Let's do this thing!

"HUGE thanks to Sarah Vermunt with Careergasm. If you want to blog and want help writing effective blogs and/or are already blogging and want to know how to send your thoughts out into the world efficiently, I highly suggest Sarah’s program Blogging for Your Biz.

"This was an exercise in discovering what my wants actually were instead of what I thought they were. I realized some of the truths that have been lying in wait just under the surface of my subconscious!! It’s trusting your instincts and really honing in on what you want for your life. My mother always used to tell me that all you have to do is put it out into the universe and the universe will respond…this work is doing just that!"Sarah Strange - Musical Theatre Vixen - Toronto
"Sarah, thank you so much for your help with everything. This 'asking for help' thing was new to me and you made it really easy!

“Sarah’s presentation on how to find your authentic voice to write content for your business was spot on for our group of coaches and therapists. As coaches, we tend to shy away from self-promotion and marketing, and Sarah’s down to earth and engaging style put us all immediately at ease. Within minutes she had us experimenting with a new technique for developing our own personal brand and the room was filled with laughter and an excited buzz as we learned how to write and be real. I would highly recommend Sarah as a speaker and coach for any entrepreneur who is looking to develop their voice online or in person. She walks the talk!”Lianne Krakauer – Career and Leadership Coach – Toronto
“Sarah is a bold, engaging and authentic speaker. She spoke at both the IBM Global Entrepreneur Day and at the national SociaLIGHT Conference and I highly recommend her.

Her courage, commitment and impact is an example to leaders who genuinely seek to follow the beat of their own song and heart!”Theresa Laurico – IBM Global Entrepreneur Day Speaker Curator & SociaLIGHT Founder – Toronto
“Working with Sarah is exactly what I needed to kick my business up a notch! I'm so impressed with how much I was able to accomplish thanks to Sarah's coaching and guidance. I was able to get really clear on my niche and ideal client, refine my copy, create and polish my programs, successfully execute a rebrand, and implement a solid blogging strategy. The amount of progress I've made thanks to her support and encouragement is astounding! If you are looking for a true partner in a coach, Sarah is your gal! I highly recommend Sarah for her coaching services.”Kamara Toffolo – Career Coach – Toronto
“Sarah spoke at our DYPB – Discover Your Personal Brand Conference in 2014 with great success and flair. She clearly has a passion for her work, an engagement style that resonated with many delegates and was one of our most popular speakers. The attendees loved her message of brazen authenticity in business and her interactive exercises got attendees excited and talking to each other. There was a lineup of people eager to speak to her after the talk, which demonstrated her impact. I personally can’t wait to collaborate with her again.”Bobby Umar – President, Raeallan – Toronto

“My experience with Sarah was brilliant! She really pays attention to small details like first impressions and how to make your resume stand out from the rest. Without her help that stuff wouldn’t have even crossed my mind. She helped me realize that most of my interview worries were mostly in my head and that mistakes can be fixed with practice. She taught me how to deal with anxiety and we worked on friendly, open body language. She really helped boost my confidence and helped me land a great gig!”Leah Halin – Media Producer – Toronto

“Sarah helped me when I was going through a tough time figuring out what I wanted to. Actually, I knew what I wanted to do, I just didn’t know how to get there or even where to start. Sarah is a calming spirit, which made opening up to her about my goals easy, and she gave me the tools to turn my talking into action. She’ll definitely be invited to my graduation. Keep fueling the fires of your clients’ dreams, Sarah. Thanks a million from the bottom of my heart.”Jody Brown – Community Investment Associate – Toronto
