Career Coaching

Dreaming About a New Job? Perhaps You Need a Career Coach

Whether you’ve been working for two years or 20, many of us feel that something is missing in our careers. We know we could be doing something else and probably making more money, but we have no idea what that is.¬†That’s where a career coach can help.

Think of yourself as an uncut diamond. A good career coach is like a gem cutter who can reveal the brilliance underneath. Once that brilliance is uncovered, we help you shine.

Our Services

We do not have a long, drawn-out process over many weeks or months. In one or two sessions we can figure out some possibilities. It’s up to you to decide what to do with those options. There is no pressure, no test taking, no hassle. Just conversation and brainstorming. We also offer mock interviews via video conference for those who want to practice.

The job market is different now than it was even just a few years ago. We can help prepare you to find–and win–your ideal job.

We offer a variety of services depending on where you are in your career and which type of help you need.
