Even the most polished, professional, and prepared candidates invariably pick up really valuable tips in an interview coaching session with me. I will show you how to communicate that you’re passionate about the job, someone who’s well-qualified, and, most importantly, someone who’s going to hit the ground running and make an impact.
A good resume is essential even if you’re not actively looking for a job. You never know when an opportunity might arise and it’s best to be prepared. Plus the process of building a strong resume can help you articulate what you bring to the table...
There is no more important career-related skill to master than professional networking. I will show you networking best practices and help you gain confidence in the whole process and help you overcome preconceived notions that stand in the way from utilizing this incredibly valuable process.
Recruiters are almost always paid by an organization to find good candidates to fit a specific position, so unless you have met all of the requirements a recruiter is not going to waste time working with you. Through creative, targeted networking I will guide you as to exactly how to successfully undertake this process.
Demonstrated ability to succeed in the real world is a powerful signal that a life coach hasn’t just learned a set of “one-size-fits-all” techniques (which is what most coaching programs teach), but can understand how to apply them successfully to the real world.
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I can help you find the direction you need to move forward with confidence.Contact Jim
I started a small business a couple of years ago and encountered some trouble getting it off the ground as rapidly as I’d hoped. I recently contacted Jim for guidance and he provided me with some really valuable insights on how to grow my business. What’s more Jim listened to me with compassionate understanding, and jump started my motivation. I highly recommend him!
Jim is a huge help and I highly recommend his services. He has a lot career experience, and he understands what employers are looking for. He offers a variety of helpful services.

Jim's career counseling expertise has had a demonstrable, positive impact in my professional and personal life. Most importantly, Jim has offered me usable tools that have improved the quality of my life, as well as given me a more meaningful career outlook. For example, Jim has helped me set professional boundaries and given me tools to navigate the C-suite in ways that actually make me happier at work on a day-to-day basis and have earned me professional accolades. He really is a "Business Buddha" as well as a great counselor.
Jim has great ideas and resources that can help you find a job or move your career in a new direction. He knows a lot about making the right presentation on your résumé, in an interview, or when asking for a raise. His advice increased my earning power and led to a more fulfilling role on at least 2 occasions. Reaching out to him is a great investment, I can't recommend him enough

He brings the rare constellation of executive management experience in business layered with a Psychotherapy license and topped with years of life experiences that has made him a careful listener and a source of intelligent, compassionate guidance tuned to the person and to the person's unique needs. I've known Jim for over 30 years and implicitly trust his judgment and guidance.
I've been speaking with Jim for a number of years about my various career moves and anxieties. He has been an incredibly stabilizing presence over the long term as I navigate my complicated career path. Jim combines no-nonsense guidance with a touch of personal empathy that has made him the right choice for me in a counselor and will be for many years to come.
With just a few sessions, Jim helped me fine tune my resume and prepare for interviews to successfully make a career transition. His services are well worth the investment.
We all have career stuff, whether it's self-inflicted or termination beyond one's control. I've experienced both. Jim can help you through whatever your circumstances may be. He creates a connection where it's safe to share what is really going on.
