Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

McLean, VA
A well-presented profile is an important aspect to any successful career. To present yourself well, you need an impactful resume and LinkedIn profile that are up-to-date and appealing, highlighting your results and achievements. It doesn’t matter if you have a long history of achievements or not, I have the experience to help you present yourself as someone who makes things happen. With my skills, I can guide you on how to create a profile and resume that will make an impact. If you haven’t focused on LinkedIn with the excuse that you’re “not into social media”, it’s time for a change. From my experience, LinkedIn is not a typical social media platform, but a unique tool that professionals can take advantage of to expand their network across various industries. Through these networking connections, you can learn the advantages and disadvantages of specific careers and organizations and learn about new job opportunities before they are posted to the public.

Professional Networking

Professional Networking

McLean, VA
Networking is five times more likely to result in a job offer than is sending resumes and is undoubtedly the single most important tool in the job hunter’s kit. However, you may be surprised at the degree to which “networking” was assumed to be only about seeking a job… period. In fact, networking is a process that is (or should be) used in many different ways and at many different career steps/stages. Contact me today to schedule a career counseling session focused on professional networking in McLean, VA.
Life Coaching

Life Coaching

McLean, VA
The majority of my clients get what I will would term very significant value from their sessions. They are able to sharpen their life and/or relationship goals; they get clarity on a path (or paths) forward to achieve those goals, and they acquire knowledge or enhance certain skills that help them get to those goals. Because they are imparted with new strengths, attitudes, and perspectives they are able to identify and pursue possibilities that weren’t even imagined before, or which might have been imagined but then dismissed as impractical or impossible.

My 3-Stage Process:

Stage One

STAGE

1

Self awareness. What are your strengths, your skills, your likes and dislikes, your values, your life goals? The answers to these questions will enable us to identify the most promising paths to explore. In this stage I will also identify and help you overcome any major obstacles to progress such as low self-confidence, discouragement, or procrastination.

Stage Two

STAGE

2

I will educate you on the pluses and minuses of various careers and craft a very specific program to enable you to gain the knowledge of these paths that is essential to making the best career choice.

Stage Three

STAGE

3

Marketing. Once having identified the most promising career choices, as a marketing expert I will work with you to ensure that your approach and job hunting materials are first rate.
