Inspiring you to go for a job that you really want

My name is Fatou Barry and I am a French-native, Irish-based Certified Coach, Career Consultant, Professional Resume Writer & Job Search Strategist.


In July 2019, I launched "Top of the Pile" with the ambition to make it the first career coaching and consulting business specifically dedicated to help ambitious multilingual millennials find their corporate dream job in Ireland. 

By age 31, I have lived and worked in five European countries, including UK, Germany & Luxembourg, and since I landed in Cork in June 2014, I have changed jobs five times working for four leading organizations, including Apple and Dell Technologies.

The idea of "Top of the Pile" was born in December 2017 when after feeling over-stressed, overworked and unfulfilled in my job, I decided to quit my well-paid position in a reputable company and do everything in my power to find my true calling and get paid doing something I love.


Now I am on a mission to help my fellow talented expats to have the confidence to go for jobs that they will truly enjoy as they become more self-aware of their unique skills, gifts and talents and realise they have so much more to offer than their fluency in their native language.

Because I believe that you absolutely deserve to be top of the pile.

I am looking forward to showing you how.

To your success,


"You deserve to be top of the pile.

Let me show you how."
