Jim Weinstein, Career Coach in Arlington VA

I’m truly fortunate to love the work that I do – guiding people on how to land a great job, how to accelerate their career advancement, or how to pivot to a more fulfilling career.

As a career coach serving Arlington VA, I attribute my success to a unique combination of skills and experience: a background of multiple successful personal career transitions, an ability to listen and communicate honed both as a psychotherapist and a marketer, 20 years of working with hundreds of clients in every imaginable field, and being blessed with a curiosity and intellect that has enabled me to thrive in environments ranging from Harvard Business School to Jeopardy!, from advertising agencies to start-ups to non-profits.
