Get Out Of Your Own Way & Move Up The Ladder With Sarah Johnston

Episode 33

Sarah Johnston

Founder | Briefcase Coach

Have you ever struggled to find the right job only to get passed over because you didn’t interview well or know how to position yourself? Or, have you stayed in the wrong job because you were afraid to take a leap of faith and pursue your dream?

Sarah Johnston, founder of Briefcase Coach, shares her own journey of struggle being in roles that were not a good fit. And, how even after she landed jobs that aligned to her interests, her self-doubt and limiting beliefs got in the way of her achieving more. Until, she finally just pushed past her fears and became The Briefcase Coach helping countless clients land roles at top companies like Google, Deloitte, Medtronic, and more.

Sarah Johnston is a former corporate recruiter and industry “insider” who got tired of seeing talented high achievers get passed over for opportunities because they did not know how to position themselves effectively. She has been featured in Inc, BBC, and Business Insider. Sarah was named a LinkedIn Top Voice in 2019 and a “top to follow” by JobScan in 2019 and 2020.

“Sixty to seventy percent of executive jobs are landed through networking.”
