Your Coach

Tonya Pomerantz

Tonya Pomerantz

It’s really hard to figure out just what to write about myself. It feels kind of weird, but here are the deets:

First things first, my name is Tonya Pomerantz, and over the past decade I have helped thousands (yes, thousands) of people successfully look for jobs, transition to a second career or determine how to move to the next step in their life or career path. (I’m not joking – I did the math.  During my seven years working at the Community Employment Resource Centre I met and helped A LOT of people).

I am an  Associate Coach with Youth Coach Global, a Certified Professional  Coach by the International Coach Academy and a member of the International Coach Federation, in addition to having a B.A., a Public Relations Diploma and a Career Development Practitioner Certificate.

In my career, I have experience in many industries including employment, recruitment, business administration, customer service, non-profit and many more. I also have a lot of experience working with engineering grads who couldn’t get a job in their field.

In 2011 I started PJC to provide the personalized and detailed attention every client should receive. Through PJC, I help my clients develop a game plan and give them the tools to build confidence and motivation. I also help clients achieve the clarity they need to create successful lives. I provide structure and help clients find their purpose; their meaning. Because I know what it’s like to go through life without direction, not knowing your place in the world. It sucks (sorry to be so crass, but it’s true.) When you don’t know who you are, what’s important to you or even what you can do, life can be hard.

Clients describe me as highly effective in helping them achieve their goals, and appreciate my sympathetic, supportive and realistic approach. I don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to life. I like helping people and need to show them how they can add value to the world.

Whether you’re looking to break into the job market, get your career unstuck, take a career test or are looking for a life coach, I’m ready to help you jump into your future.
