"Every time people apply to an online job posting, they're hurling themselves into a six-inch pane of plexiglass.
You've got to walk around it, but career coaches must give infrastructure...a backpack full of water and food to help job seekers start that journey and to give an alternative to hurling themselves into that wall."
Why see a career coach?
We work with specialists for the most important things in our life. We reach out to real estate brokers to sell our homes, physical trainers to build muscles faster, college prep tutors to improve SAT scores, etc.
Few job seekers can count themselves as experts in the nuts and bolts of looking for new employment. After all, these are not activities that we do on a regular basis -- thank goodness! If your job search is at an impasse, or you want a career change, working with a specialist can save you time and frustration by helping you work smarter and move faster.
Career coaching is not about "finding" yourself but rather the active process of actually "creating" an employment opportunity that fits who you really are. It's my job to think strategically, guide you, and keep you focused during this exciting and often stressful time.
We'll set up a robust complimentary phone consultation: I want to hear about your current situation, your career goals, and your expectations. We need to decide if we're a good fit.
Some clients come for one session: for a customized list of occupational resources or an 11th-hour prep for an interview. Many find that a few sessions provide the clarity to move forward on their own. Others prefer a more hands-on approach and come regularly to stay on track and incorporate several job search strategies concurrently.
Studies show that job seekers with the right professional support get their next job faster.

I'm eager to meet you.
