If you are a techie person, click here to learn more about my technical background and why you should want to work with me.

All the above certs mostly point out I know what to do.
To me, it’s more important you understand why I love to do what I do and and how I help you.

 

Here’s the whyI care because I've probably have been where you might be 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.

 

 

Here's how you’ll benefit by hiring me:

  1. I will work with you to capture your unique story and personality to gain you more responses.
    A free service can’t do this for you.

  2. I’ll capture your human element, in addition to optimizing your résumé  for the ATS.

  3. My available services include practice interviewing, enabling you to stand out during the interview process.

  4. As an experienced coach and interviewer, I’ll ask you questions that help you re-discover your strengths and transferable skills.

  5. You'll know I understand you: I’ve been in your shoes; I’ve worked for hi-tech, government, and higher-ed. I was laid off multiple times. I switched careers several times.

  6. I know what I’m doing. Check my credentials and more importantly, my client testimonials.
