About me and what I can offer
Hello and Welcome to my Personal and Career Development website!
My name is Sanja Williams, an independent career consultant and experienced HR professional, based in the UK.
WHO is this website for: This website is for all people interested in personal and career development. Especially for people who are either thinking of moving to the UK or already in the UK with genuine aspirations and passion to develop their career further and invest in their personal development as most of my blogs will use UK as an example. If this is you, then look no further, you are at the right starting place. You can also join my - Career Changes and Consultation Group - on Facebook to network with likeminded people.
WHAT is my offer to you: My offer to you is to support, help, inspire and develop you on your career journey. When I came to England in 2009, I was pretty much on my own trying to figure out my career options, how to ask for work experience, how to find my first job and what I would actually like to do here. What could I be good at and actually enjoy working in the UK? I changed my career from law to HR - Human Resources and have a lot of tips and advice to share with you that I have learnt over the last 10 years. I pride myself on being different from other career experts - I offer strategic, clear, straight to the point advice and a point of view directly from my experience on the other side of the table.
HOW can I support you: I have created Focus Yourself as I believe a focus is very important in everything we do in life. It drives us to actually take some steps and actions that will ultimately lead to achieving our focus. I provide guidance to job seekers, career changers, and those in transition on most effective methods of self-marketing, networking, and relationship building.
- Advise on various job search and interview preparation techniques
- Consult on resume and CV improvement
- Teach how to leverage LinkedIn for achieving career goals
- Create motivational content about work-life balance, stress management, mental health, workplace psychology, diversity and inclusion, and other topics related to personal and social aspects of career development. I offer a complimentary 30 minute career conversation that you can book HERE.
My promise to you: I will strive to make every conversation and workshop a memorable and useful experience where you can share your wishes, ambition, gaps you believe you have and potentially network with people in the similar situation to yours. We can discuss challenges you come across and I am happy to share mine, placing a large emphasis on delivering actionable content so you do not lose your focus. Are you ready to make a career progress and change in your personal life?
Do let me know if you would like to hear more, I would love to hear from you.
All views are my own!
I met Sanja when I was looking for an HR or head hunter that will assist me in preparation for an English interview. Sanja enabled me to analyze the interview from the employer's point of view. I finely understood the true meaning behind the questions and what was expected from me. Thanks to Sanja's professional guidance, I learned how to present my self in a very professional and confident way.
I highly recommend Sanja and her blog. She changed my life.

She has provided professional advice and excellent support in shaping my CV and cover letter. She has also pointed me in the right direction and motivated me to go above and beyond. I highly recommend her, she a fantastic coach!

Sanja's blog is a helpful and useful guide especially for individuals who are looking to improve themselves both personally and professionally. Her blog has ample short reads but practical ideas that helps one to be better at what they do. I have known Sanja through a public support group for woman since May 2019, and she is a kind, understanding, knowledgable and consistent person I've met. Focus Yourself is a source of motivation andnhelp in small and big ways.
