What is a Career Coach?
A career coach provides a fresh perspective and creates a more manageable career change. Career coaches are experts in career planning, resume building, negotiation, and interviewing. They understand how to highlight your professional experience and market it to potential employers in the most attractive way. They hold you accountable to move toward your goals.
How are you different from other career coaches?
As a former recruiter, I understand what companies look for in candidates. I know all behind-the-scenes information from the Applicant Tracking System works to define salary bands, and I can deal with those pesky recruiters! I provide a significant level of support and tailored game plans. I approach my clients with kindness, empathy, compassion, and compassion.
What’s your success ratio?
While I can’t guarantee that you will get a job while working with me, I will ensure that you feel 100% prepared, confident, and assured that you are putting your best foot forward at the end of our time together.
How do I know if I am a good fit for your services?
I focus on mid-career professionals who have the means and time to value the process intentionally—people who want to invest in themselves to elevate their career path.
What happens if I get into my program and something changes my situation?
We pivot. Sometimes, life happens, and although it’s not recommended, we pause and reschedule. However, if you get a role before our time has ended, we will modify your remaining program to help you with your first 90 days on the job. I want you to feel like you have a sounding board, feel supported and brainstorm possible strategies for overcoming challenges.
How much is your package?
Before we discuss price, it’s essential to determine if you are a fit for my program. The first step is to schedule a Discovery Call. Once we decide you are a fit, I’ll review the various pricing options with you.
