3 Steps to Designing & Landing Your Dream Job
About Christine S. Oh
My name is Christine S. Oh and I’m an executive and career coach.
As an immigrant child having experienced the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in my youth, I saw first-hand how nonprofit organizations helped people like my parents, underserved immigrant communities, with critical resources during their time of need. That’s why I’ve committed myself to use my talents and resources to help support disadvantaged communities.
I started my career dedicated to underserved communities, but I learned the hard way that until I knew how to advocate for myself, I couldn’t make a significant impact.
I failed to ask for a salary increase when accepting job offers, erroneously expected my supervisors to recognize my good work and promote me, and also never defined my own goals for my career.
As a result, I missed out on multiple opportunities for advancement.
So I read everything I could find and met with leaders who taught me about influence, managing effectively, and navigating the unwritten rules of the workplace.
Thanks to these lessons learned, I’ve not only successfully managed my own career, but I have also helped other professionals step into their power and make an impact.
Now I help BIPOC women executives who want to make a positive social impact space manage up, challenge their inner critic, and live without limits.
If this is you, let’s talk.
