Your Career Coach in Alexandria, VA

Are you unhappy with your career and in search of a change but don’t know what might make sense? Perhaps you need help in crafting a great resume, in learning how to effectively network, or in improving your interviewing skills. Maybe you’re seeking a raise or a promotion but lack of self-confidence is standing in the way of advancement. No matter your situation, I know I can help.

In all modesty, no one can offer the wisdom and experience that I have, thanks to the success I’ve achieved in 4 different careers – as an advertising executive with 3 of America’s top agencies, as the leader of a nationally renowned not-for-profit, as a long-time licensed psychotherapist, and as a career counselor and life coach over the past 15 years. That’s the reason I’ve received rave reviews from dozens of clients – more than anyone else in the area.

I invite you to look through my website and then contact me for a free 15 minute chat so that I can answer any questions you might have. I look forward to talking and working with you to bring you the success you deserve.

“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.”

Find The Right Career

Your career is a big part of your life. After all, you’re probably there at least 5 days a week for most of the day. That’s why understanding yourself, and what you want in life is so important. With so many factors at play and so many options, it can be difficult to chart your path. Career guidance and counseling can help provide clarity to your next move. Are you looking for opportunities in the right places? Are you being honest with yourself about what you want? Should you switch jobs? If any of these questions has crossed your mind, you should contact me. I have undergone major career shifts and significant life transitions successfully, and can help you chart the right course with career counseling in Alexandria, VA.

Perfect Your Profile

How you present yourself is a critical component of career success. So you need a resume and a LinkedIn profile that’s contemporary, attractive, concise, and most of all impactful, emphasizing results and achievements, not just the functions you’ve filled. Even if you don’t have a strong history of creating impact, the right wording can greatly amplify the impression that you’ve made things happen – as a marketing expert I know exactly how to do that. As for LinkedIn, some people avoid it saying that they’re “not into social media.” That’s a mistake. As I see it LinkedIn isn’t really social media, it’s an invaluable business tool that facilitates networking with a wide variety of people who can both enlighten you as to advantages and disadvantages of career paths and organizations, and can identify job opportunities well before they’re posted publicly.


Get Ahead Faster

Are you stuck in a rut at your current job? Do you lack the motivation and excitement you once had for your profession? Maybe things are going well, but you need coaching to move up the ladder. Do you feel that you deserve a raise, but don’t know how to approach your boss? Are you itching for a promotion but find your path forward blocked? Are you unsure what your next professional development move should be? Do you need to acquire additional skills? Go back to school? If any of this describes where you are, career counseling can make all the difference in the world. I have helped hundreds of people increase their job satisfaction, get a raise, and find the confidence and clarity necessary to advance their careers.
