Geraldine Sinnema

Een wereld van verschil (Career coaching)

Originally educated as a sociologist and education expert at Wageningen University, I have now found my niche in providing personal career development counselling. I feel privileged to be able to accompany people on a stretch of their life path and to be one of the instruments to have helped during a particular stage. I work since 1993 as a career consultant, coach and trainer for highly educated people. I already accompanied hundrerds of people to a (better) job. My strong point is being able to translate insight about people into practical advice that can help you to reach your goals. I use my clarity, empathy and creativity to make a true difference.
