I decided to meet with Jim when I was contemplating making a big career change. I found my meetings with him to be supportive, helpful and constructive. Throughout the process he challenged me and helped me see what I could not see before. I was lost and scared in my previous job and Jim helped me by walking me through the process of change...
I chose to work with Jim after speaking with several other coaches. I was very impressed with his credentials, particularly his repeated success in several different career fields, and I found him very easy to talk with. Jim helped me discover what would be a fulfilling career path for me, gave me the confidence to pursue my passion, and provided invaluable guidance on the best way to do that. I can't recommend him highly enough.
I have known Jim for ten years. 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. If you need a new job immediately or if you are contemplating a career change going forward, I'd call Jim.
As one can expect, trying to make a career transition is a highly emotional and somewhat stressful experience as it requires a certain level of honesty, self-reflection and hard work. I reached out to a number of career coaches in the DC area when I began to contemplate a change but no one I spoke with had the quite the same intelligent, calm demeanor as Jim. Jim supported my growth, both professionally and personally, by providing me with thoughtful direction, insight, and feedback...
I have known Jim professionally for almost 15 years. His intelligence, experience, and background are all exceptional, which has led me to send numerous patients of mine to him when they are in need of career guidance (I am a Jungian psychoanalyst). The feedback I've gotten from them has been uniformly positive - he's made a real difference in their lives.
Jim was recommended to me by a mutual friend because I was at a major crossroads in my life and needed compassionate, insightful yet impartial readings of my options. I was especially impressed with Jim's business credentials as well as his counseling background. I continue to consult with Jim and highly recommend him to anyone in need of business counseling.
I have had the pleasure working with Jim for the past 6 years. I say “working with” as this has been an extremely successful collaborative process. I approached Jim as I was struggling with working through a rough patch in my professional career...
As an executive search/headhunter I have been lucky enough to partner with Jim on a number of occasions. I have referred several local and remote (Skype, etc.) mid-level to executive-level candidates to him who have reported back to me with rave reviews. Jim has also consulted with me whenever my executive search expertise has been a helpful element to his full-service thoughtful career advice he provides his clients. 100% class act and worth the investment.
Asking Jim Weinstein to help me navigate my career path was the best decision I could make in my life. Jim was instrumental in helping me envision a complete change in careers – something I wish I had done years ago, but now have the courage and clarity to pursue. Two years later, and I’m deeply committed in that process...

Jim helped me through a critical time in my business. My market research business had been deeply affected by technology and changes in corporate culture. Do I close the doors and move on? If not what are my options? Is it time for a change? In addition to Jim’s counseling background, he’s a Harvard MBA with years of experience at the highest levels of the advertising industry so he really understood my issues.
Everyone should want a career that makes them feel good about going to work every day, that provides them with challenge and fulfillment – that’s the right long-term goal. But for many people the #1 priority is landing a job that represents a significant improvement over their current employment situation, whether in the midst of a toxic political situation, being eased out, burned out, needing to get back into the work force, or just in general dissatisfied.
