I'm Yvonne Robinson-Jackson, Founder and CEO of Goal Inspired Career Coaching Inc.
I was recently awarded the title,
OTTAWA's BEST CAREER COACH
My career journey has been anything but ordinary. From working as a Librarian to a Teacher, Sales Representative, University Professor, Senior Director of Professional Staffing, and finally, a successful Executive Career Coach, I've experienced the importance of carving out my own career path.
I faced numerous challenges along the way, including job changes, pivots, and even layoffs, but these obstacles only fueled my determination. I never let them stop me from pursuing my goals, and I accomplished my dreams while working full-time and completing two major degrees, and even changing careers at 50.
Despite being an immigrant woman, I advanced from the help desk to the executive desk and eventually retired from corporate at 65 with a memorable all-day party in my honor.
The most valuable lesson I've learned is that everyone's career journey is unique and not a ladder but a staircase. You have the power to build it the way you want.
As a Career Success coach, I impart this wisdom to help ambitious professionals advance their careers.
Don't be afraid to carve out your own path and build your own staircase.
With hard work and determination, you too can achieve your career goals.

WHAT ARE OTHER CAREER PROFESSIONALS SAYING?
I recently had the pleasure of working with Yvonne as my career coach, and I am extremely grateful for their help in securing my new role as Sales Manager.
Yvonne was instrumental in guiding me through the job search process, providing valuable insights and advice every step of the way. Yvonne has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the career coaching field, and it showed in the personalized attention and support she provided.
Yvonne was always available to answer my questions and offer guidance, and her expertise helped me to land my dream job in record time. I highly recommend Yvonne to anyone looking to take their career to the next level.
Her dedication and commitment to her clients is unparalleled, and I am confident that she can help anyone achieve their career goals.
Thank you, Yvonne for your invaluable assistance and support.
Norman Katz - Sales Manager
I met Yvonne in a chance meeting on LinkedIn and had the pleasure of working with her recently when I took her career coaching course. I found her personality to be very energetic and engaging. She thoroughly assessed me (i.e., professional character, personality, vital soft skills) after a 1-hour initial session. She was able to customize her course content to support my professional needs.
The key areas that were invaluable to me were helping me to recognize the significance between having a master vs. prospecting and targeting resumes.
The other key area was multiplicity in one’s career and the ability to know who I am in terms of the role that mostly aligns with my professional practice's.
Her coaching style promotes collaboration, mutual respect, and constructive feedback based on her extensive IT and recruitment diasporas.
Thank you, Yvonne, for your invaluable service and for helping me revamp my resume and finding a new job.
Dione Valentine- Project Executive
I was looking for a new job for 8 months during the Pandemic, but I was not successful. I also paid a resume writing service to get my LinkedIn profile and resume created but it was not working for me.
I reached out to Yvonne through a mutual friend during the pandemic who told me that her results are fast. I did not believe but I did it anyway.
I met with her for consultation and that changed everything for me.
Yvonne helped me with my professional branding including a new LinkedIn profile, and resume rewrite. She also told me to watch her YouTube videos about specific topics. I watched her YouTube videos and used the strategies in my interviews. I landed a job within a few weeks of following her career advice and I still use those tips to navigate my career path.
She is amazing!!!
If you would like to advance in your career, I highly recommend Yvonne Robinson-Jackson, you will not have any regrets.
Marion Kaahwa - Accountant
Landed The job!
After deciding to make a career change and leave a successful full-time job after several years, Yvonne helped me through the process of not only applying for new jobs and prepping for the interviews, but through the process of self-discovery and clarity.
She used her tool kit to help me formulate my wants + wish lists; she asked the tough questions that helped provide clarity in my thoughts; and, she worked with me to create strategies that would work for me personally and my professional development.
Her enthusiasm for the job search and her clients, coupled with her positive energy fueled me to research, apply and communicate my worth as a professional.
Time spent with Yvonne is a value-add to any career search.
Rochelle James - Management Consultant
'The first thing I noticed about Yvonne is her amazing level of positive energy, giving spirit, and absolutely contagious enthusiasm.
I immediately valued her vast experience and insights from her many years as a successful professional recruiter. She clearly knows the industry and how things work.
Yvonne's advice was incredibly helpful to me - it reaffirmed that I was on the right track, that my over 30 years of experience mattered and how to showcase it, and most importantly it restored some of the faith and confidence I had lost during the initial months of my job search where I had literally questioned everything.
Yvonne and I made some changes and just a few days later my phone literally exploded with interview requests. I could not keep up!
Ultimately Yvonne was right on so many points, and I ended up in a multiple simultaneous offer scenario.
Thank you so much Yvonne, you are absolutely amazing.
Lily Abelo - Senior Product Manager
Yvonne worked with me to advance my career to the next level.
She was great from the initial meeting where she helped craft a plan based on what I wanted to achieve, how to ensure I covered every base to get there…I really liked her high energy and unbridled optimism, no matter what the seemingly unsurpassable obstacles were on the way to achieving success, she has an innate ability to empower you froward.
I wholeheartedly recommend Yvonne as a career management coach.
Yvonne is meant for this work. She has a tremendous ability to help people figure out what it is that really motivates them, and drives them to build on their strengths and activate their passion.
Juwon Solarin - Commercial Operations & Expansion Manager
Landed the job!
Yvonne encouraged me to identify my career goals and taught me how to attain them. I was capable to quickly assess my career needs and aspirations and afterward, I was able to identify the types of companies to target, how to prepare for interviews, and how to write my resume to get hired. Within a few weeks.
I was able to find a wonderful opportunity that fully aligned with my career goals and the personal growth I was seeking in my professional life.
Yvonne shared her expertise and recommendations in areas beyond career coaching.
Her coaching defines career advancement and has helped me immeasurably.
Dr. Nicole Murekatete - Director of Quality
If you're looking for someone to mentor you and get a career advice while working on your resume & interview skills, Yvonne should be your point of contact.
The plethora of experience and wisdom she brings with herself is so awesome, you can literally feel the energy! An amazing mentor who has the right blend of skills, job-market knowledge & talent. She absolutely understands the Canadian employers expectations, not just only private but government as well.
She will help you modify your resume line by line, the section, the content end to end and help you prepare for your interview as well.
You can count on Yvonne anytime!
Nikhil Pal Singh - Data Analytics Project Manager.
As a new immigrant, I was feeling lost in my job search and wasn't getting much response despite applying to many positions. I was getting frustrated until I met Yvonne through a college.
I connected with her on LinkedIn and she offered me personalized sessions that truly made a difference.
Thanks to Yvonne's guidance and expertise, she transformed my resume and taught me how to optimize it for my target jobs.
I followed her advice and revamped my resume, and the results were amazing. I started to get more interviews, and eventually landed a job that I'm thrilled about.

I was fortunate to meet her when I was in the middle of a job search that was leading nowhere. She helped redirect my focus on how best to go about it.
After helping review my resume and LinkedIn profile, employers and recruiters started reaching out to me for roles.
I would recommend Yvonne to anyone who is feeling lost in their Job search process.
Amarachi Nnam PMP, PMI-ACP, E.I.T, MSc.
Yvonne was instrumental in helping me secure two jobs in 2021 during the height of the pandemic. Her pointers and recommendations were direct and resulted in the best resume I have ever had. I highly recommend working with her if you are thinking about a career move.
