My name is Sarah Baker Andrus, and I’m the Founder and CEO of Avarah Careers. I’ve been on all sides of the hiring equation, serving as a recruiting director, a hiring manager, and a career counselor. And, I’ve worked for a variety of organizations – from a Fortune 500 company to a multi-million dollar family-owned business, non-profits, and academia – so I know how the recruiting process works from the inside.
And, you know what I love? Helping people figure out what kind of work will make them jump out of bed in the morning! I know how to help you navigate through the job market and land that job you really want. My favorite days? When a client calls and says, “I got the offer!”
After spending more than 20 years as a corporate executive, I started Avarah so I could have more of those truly great days and help others have them too. That includes young adults who may have made a misstep right out of college, mid-career professionals looking to make a move, people who know they have to make a change (looming layoff, toxic boss, etc.), and people who want to transfer their skills to something new and maybe entirely different!
I’ve got two grown sons, for whom I hope I was a good role model of a working mother. I confess that I’m secretly thrilled when they ask for career advice! And, I’m forever grateful that my husband Brian is an amazing partner, and shares my love of good food, wine and running through Delaware’s beautiful parks.
