We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Camilo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sara, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
That’s easy – my 15 years of recruiting experience. I utilize it daily in my career coaching business. Those years included working with Fortune 100 corporations and recruiting agencies, so I bridge gaps for job seekers.

I’m certified in resume writing and career coaching now, and my primary services include writing resumes and LinkedIn profiles, and providing techniques and strategies around job searching, preparing for interviews, and the salary negotiation process. I get to help my clients navigate the entire process and job searching journey to find an ideal job at a salary of their worth.  I’ve also created a guide to help clients successfully manage the salary negotiation process: 12 Salary Negotiation Tip + a Bonus Offer

Job searching can be an overwhelming and frustrating process, I aim to make it easier for my clients and share free tips on both Instagram and Facebook as well. I wasn’t happy through many years of my career, so I can relate to that “stuck” feeling many people reach. Now that I love what I do, I want to help everyone experience that feeling of fulfillment as well.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Even though it’s cliché to say, “life’s too short to hate your job,” I’m saying it anyway. If you’re unhappy in your career, I challenge you to look internally, determine your natural strengths, and use them to build your ideal career.

Was it easy to leave my corporate job and start my own company? It was risky, yet, I wasn’t nervous because I knew I had a lot to offer others in order to make their careers and lives better.

My key advice is this: If you know you’re not in the right job/industry/company for you, take a baby step in a new direction and pay attention to where it takes you next.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting, we’d go south to Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California, Mexico. Each hotel there is unique from the next one. Our weekend would be composed of wine tasting, sun, hiking, and beautiful views. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband, my +1, who’s also my exclusive and volunteer Chief Tech Support Officer.
