Why you should join…

“How to elaborate or refine that career path that makes sense to you?

Maria Zarraga helps you ask yourself the right questions, know yourself better and define the best actions to get successful results.

The webinar showed me those ingredients and taught me which tools to use. I was then able to direct my efforts more efficiently to lead my next career step. With this multi-perspective approach, I am confident I can enjoy the transition journey while harvesting optimal returns and ensuring a good work-life balance.

I am definitely recommending Forwaves to boost your career transition ! ” Frédéric. C


“I love and recommend this webinar because it goes beyond just having a meaningful career.

This webinar actually gave me concrete tools to reflect on the career I truly want, my values, and how to take the next bold move most effectively, which I get to apply now.

If you want to concretely grow as a leader or if you are in a career transition, and want to speed up your results, I can assure you, you won’t find ForWaves’ unique blend anywhere else.” – U.V.

What FORWAVES ACADEMY participants say…

R. L., PhD (Skills Assessment & Coaching)

“I contacted ForWaves for a career coaching and assessment after a mass layoff in my industry. There were no other professional openings for my profile despite a strong academic and professional track record. ForWaves helped me to take stock of my situation and focus on hands-on methods to reroute my career in a positive and proactive manner. The personalized service and advice I received was second to none in getting me back on my feet and the insights provided by the tried and tested methods were truly eye opening and empowering. ForWaves deserves my heartfelt thanks and praise.

“[…]  I had tried traditional approaches, replying to adverts, networking, reaching out to my contacts, spontaneous applications, and retraining in a different field (…) Mixing psychology with career advice and coaching was totally new to me, and far removed from the usual corporate personality profiles I had seen in my career. (…) I have now switched my career orientation in a totally new profession, literally starting from scratch. I found a job that has allowed me to leverage both my past experience and expertise and the retraining I followed, and while I don’t know what tomorrow holds, I have proven to myself what I had already done in the past but forgotten: I can reinvent myself and start fresh if I put enough effort into it.”

C. M. (Workshop)

“I attended a training about career development and how to build a successful personal and professional project…and make it a reality. I was greatly impressed by the force of nature that is Ms. Zarraga — a true professional with great experience who is actively listening and able to bring out the best in each individual in each situation. She has the knowledge and the emotional intelligence to drive change in people and I hope to work with her again in the near future.”

Employee in the field of emergencies  (Skills Assessment & Coaching)

“I work in the field of emergencies. The difficult situations I experienced in the last years led to a burnout. It was no longer possible for me to apprehend my future career serenely. […]

This all allowed me to be able to seriously undertake various courses, be effective in my job search, and position myself among the final candidates in a completely different industry.”

H. H. (Workshop & Coaching)

[…] And beyond that, I would like to thank you in particular for making me aware of my abilities and my various achievements. I was able to  perceive my achievements from a different angle and this allowed me to highlight other skills that I had acquired.

I can only highly recommend this program to anyone who wishes to take this path, it goes beyond what is expected! A beautiful encounter and thank you again for your precious collaboration.”

R. Marks, Project, Program & Portfolio Manager  (Workshop)

“I had the pleasure of attending Ms Maria Zarraga’s career training and workshop on networking. I found the approach advocated for business (and in life in general) to be a perfect balance between modesty, politeness, respect and getting to the point.

The tools and methodologies are well aligned with this approach, differing from the often mechanical approaches to networking promoted by others. Even experienced networkers will come away with a more refined approach!

J. H. (Skills Assessment & Coaching)

“I thank ForWaves for accompanying me through my professional transition. I was looking for a reorientation for my career. The personalised career and life coaching helped me regain confidence in my abilities and in myself, and to be now fulfilled in an activity that is in line with my values and life project.
