The finance field is not only exciting, it's financially rewarding. The high earning potential, along with many career options, makes this career choice desirable for ambitious professionals.
Hello, I'm Suzanne Muusers, Finance Career Coach and Job Search Coach for the finance and investment industries. I help my clients get more from their careers through one or both of the two following custom programs:
I help professionals like you focus on your career, figure out your key strengths and skills and match them up with the best career options. I help you ensure that your personal brand attracts hiring managers and recruiters, who then contact you for an interview.
For the last 13 years, I have been coaching clients in the finance and investment industries, helping them find work that is personally and professionally rewarding.
Preparing for your job search is essential to your financial success! You will use time effectively, organize your job search, and focus on earning what you are worth. This investment will pay off for your entire career!
Interviewing for a position in financial services is like interviewing in many career paths. You have to know what the interviewer is looking for, how to answer tough questions, and how to show that you've got the "right stuff."

- Are you looking for another industry that can use your financial skills?
- Are you looking for a better lifestyle, more balance, and less stress?
- Are you more technically skilled? How about your relationship skills?
- Is there another role within your current firm that appeals to you?
- Do you have difficulty marketing and selling your skills?
- How are your interviewing skills?
- How are your negotiation skills?

Private Client Website
When you work with me, you'll have access to my Private Client Website with all my coaching programs, tools, and exercises. You'll have examples offering you useful "how-to" advice and training that we will use during our coaching sessions.
How do you start?
Step 1 - Let go of the fear of change
Change is scary. It's easy to resist change and stay exactly where you are. There's safety in the known and fear in the unknown. But where will you be in a year? Exactly where you are now. Working through fear and understanding how to overcome barriers will help you get out of your comfort zone.
Step 2 – Commit to self-discovery
Through coaching, we will discover your strengths and competencies. This will take energy and focus and will help you see things in a new light. You will see that YOU are the most important person in your life. Have you ever made the commitment to work on YOU? Key issues will come to light that will have you enjoying many "aha" moments.
Step 3 – Hire me as your Career Coach
There's no better way to get started. Having me as your unbiased coach focused on your career success will help you attain new heights.
People are your best asset. Invest in their job satisfaction and career development by hiring me as your Career Development Coach. There's nothing better than individual attention and customized career goals to help your team members improve and advance.
I help your employees better manage time, be more productive, and handle stress. This leads to increased happiness, improved efficiency, and less down time.
My style is hands on and individual. I ask my clients to commit to excellence in their business life and their personal life.
