What Do You Want In a Career Coach?

I like Chinese food and Oolong tea.

If those things weren’t on your list of criteria for a career coach, I have a whole bunch of training and certifications and qualifications, too—Certified Professional Coach (CPC); Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW); Certified Myers-Briggs Practitioner (MBTI); certified DiSC Trainer  (Wiley Corp.) and authorized DISC Administrator and Behavioral Consultant (Profiling Pro).

 

But those mostly point out I know what to do. To me, it’s more important you understand why and how I do it.

 

Here’s the why: I care about people who are stuck and are having trouble getting started.

 I care because I've probably have been where you are right now. Looking for a new job, out of work, unfulfilled in your present job or convinced there was something else you should be doing.

Maybe that’s you or perhaps one of these scenarios describes what’s going on with you:

  • Company layoffs

  • Fear of Changing Careers

  • Entrepreneur startups

  • Interviewing anxiety

The how starts by combining traditional job-search tools and modern coaching techniques to help you land your next job or transition to a new field that best utilizes your unique skills and attributes. 

I’ve been able to help a wide range of people (read my testimonials). Let’s discuss what I can do for you.

Whether you want assistance with your résumé, cover letter and self-marketing pitch, or need someone to help you get started with that first step for career transition or mock interviewing, I can help.

Isn't it time you get started? Contact us to take that most important first step. If you have been out of work for a while and are concerned about the added expense of working with a coach, let’s talk anyway. I want to help.
