Career Coach, Performance Coach
Interview Coach - 14 yrs experience, CCMC, Certified Job Search Strategist, CEIC
There is only one thing between you and your dream job. The interview. And that's what I will prepare you for; making you look like the most desirable choice for the employer.
In my 14 years career, I've seen a lot of senior executives and mid-level professionals so confident about their job experience, they would just walk into the interview and miss the golden opportunity. A good product is of a true value but very often it is the packaging and marketing that helps it to become the top brand.
With my help, you will learn specific tools, tricks and hacks that will enable you to create the perfect image and position you at the forefront of this ultra-competitive, global recruitment landscape.
My own experience is multicultural and multi-industrial. I'm a certified coach who has traveled and worked with clients from over 42 countries and helped create careers as Head of HR in FMCG, Banking, Airlines, Construction, Advertising, Automotive and Media.
Let's talk and get you the results you desire.

The session with you empowered me to approach the interview with much more confidence and gave me the tools to succeed. Prior to our sessions I attended many interviews but was unsuccessful. After our session, I was able to impress the interviewers and got 3 job offers. The tools and techniques you helped me with, will help me in all future interviews, negotiations and any opportunities that come out of those. I got the job I wanted because of our sessions! Thank you Shirin.Anna Jacob, Compliance Officer, UAE
When you are higher up the corporate ladder - as I am - it is difficult to seek advice from near-ones. Shirin was refereed to me by a mentor when I was struggling with dead-ends.A. A. General Manager, Dubai
Shirin is a natural coach. It helps that she has amassed a lot of experience on the field, before deciding to help others.
She asks questions. A lot of questions. She doesn’t try to copy-paste generic advises. She amasses the information and assesses it. Her conversation always has a strategic edge to it which means you go away with a fresh perspective and a refined strategy. Also, her advice on how to negotiate a good salary paid for the price of my coaching sessions ten times over. Anyone concerned with interviews should speak to Shirin
Prior to meeting Shirin, I had no clue how to prepare for the interviews. When I was invited to interviews - I would visit the employers’ website, look up the FAQs on job portals, attend the interviews and then pray that I would get the job. But just after only 1 session with Shirin I realized that there is a direct connection between what efforts I put in before the interview and the success rate. She gave me a quick checklist of what I needed to cover before every interview. I got hired in the first interview that I attended after coaching with Shirin.Ravi Patel, Senior Finance Manager, India
I was a fresh graduate and was on a visit to Dubai to find a job. I was very nervous and anxious as there was a strict deadline to find a job that I liked, or else I would have to leave the country and go back to India. Shirin helped me focus and put a structured plan in place which helped me target the relevant companies and specific vacancies. This made my search very thorough and systematic. I am very happy to say that with Shirin’s help I managed to find the job that I love.Abdul A, Event Executive, Dubai
My last organization was going through a tough phase and unfortunately, I was made redundant. I struggling to find a job for 8 months. I was invited to interviews but again and again, I was rejected. This made me very depressed as I started feeling that I will never find a job again. But once I started coaching with Shirin, I understood what I was doing wrong and what improvements were needed. After just 3 months of coaching with Shirin, I am on last rounds of interviews with 2 organizations and I am confident of receiving an offer from both employers. I highly recommend her!Abdullah Ahmed , Asst. GM, KSA
I have been attempting to find a job and move out of Egypt for over 2 years but I didn’t succeed. With Shirin’s help I have been able to understand the nuances of a job hunt in Dubai. She has been extremely supportive and understanding in my journey so far. She is the most capable career coach I know of.Sarah M, Trade Channel Manager, Egypt
Shirin helped me get the job I wanted at a leading tech organization.
She trained me on how to approach an interview; what research should I do on the organization - and why it's VERY important; she also helped me formulate answers for common interview questions such as "why should we hire you" and "what are your strengths and weaknesses".
During the mock interviews, she gave me detailed feedback on things that I could improve and the reasoning behind it. This was invaluable.
After I was hired, I found out that I was considered to be the best candidate from the first interview even thought my experience wasn't the exact match to the job description. I strongly believe that my success wouldn't have happened without Shirin's guidance.John Smith, Analyst, New York
