Career Coach in Singapore

An executive coach based in Singapore, Yolanda has supported thousands of individuals at career pivotal points with her career coaching services.


Once a highly regarded professional headhunter, Yolanda is also an experienced jobseeker, having changed paths seven times in her 20 years of corporate career. 


From a village child “prodigy” who entered university at the age of 15 on scholarship to a software engineer, a SaaS solution consultant, an executive recruiter, an MBA at INSEAD, and a regional VP/Director/Country Head in Alibaba, Mastercard, and Visa, Yolanda went through a winding journey to find herself. And now, she is dedicated to helping you to find yours.

Career Coaching is not about Changing Jobs.

If you are not clear of your life priorities, finding another job will not make you happier.
If you don’t know your real worth, a resume edited for better grammar will not bring you more interviews.
If you are not confident, interview tips will not give you more job offers.
If you don’t believe you deserve the success you want, you will not create it. 

It's About Seeing What Matters to You

What is your true desire in career and life?
What are your unique strengths and worth valued by the market?
What are your self-limiting beliefs hindering your success?

The clarity to these key questions bring real confidence, hope and momentum towards your dream career goals.


From this point onward, we’ll nail down to a simple and sharp brand message capturing the essence of you; We’ll have a pragmatic strategy for each job segment you decided to target;


We’ll re-look at ways to negotiate for a higher salary while nurturing relationships.


I will also arm you with a thorough resume template and an interview guide, for you to implement your brand message.


In addition, you can find 40+ videos sharing tactical advice entirely for free in my YouTube channel.

But before all that, let’s look inward.

Executive Coaching for mindset shift: clarity and confidence

While advisory is “I tell you what I know”, coaching is about finding out “what you know”. Using executive coaching methodology, I will provide a space for you to turn inward. After all, there are questions no one else can answer for you.

Step-by-step practical advisory from an ex-recruiter

But there are things you do not know. As an ex-recruiter in Singapore, I also provide concrete guidance, market knowledge, and structure, for you to deal with ambiguity and re-anchor your career. 

Mentor for leadership transition or promotion

In my career coaching, I bring in the mentoring component when my client needs it, often when getting promoted or transiting into a senior leadership role. 

In my 20 years of corporate experience, I have worked with many C-level and senior executives, led million-dollar projects and met with high-stake clients who own billion-dollar companies. 

Based out of Singapore, I worked across Asia Pacific with global companies. The skills I acquired are beyond stakeholder management or business development, but how we see the world in economic and commercial lenses and how we lead a purposeful life.
