Think of our work together as an investment in yourself and your future, in the same way that you might hire an investment advisor to help you get maximum value from your personal financial assets. As a career counselor I can provide the same value.
I bring to this process my substantial “real world” experience in the business and non-profit fields, as well as my professional credentials as a therapist and the knowledge I’ve gained through coaching many hundreds of clients in fields as diverse as finance, law, the arts, IT, entrepreneurship, real estate, hospitality, education, health care, not-for-profit, and of course government.
I know what employers are looking for, and I know how to create outstanding “marketing” materials that can help you find a new career:
-Resume & Cover letter review
-LinkedIn profile review
-Business card – “elevator pitch”
-How to launch your own personal “marketing campaign”
-How the job market has changed.
Career choice is often made with sub-optimal research and deliberation. Certainly that’s true of initial career choice. Twenty somethings’ are very much swayed by the opinions of family, peers, and popular culture, and their career choices often reflect (I would say excessively) those influences.
A vitally important step in narrowing down a career path is to make an effort to filter out the “noise” of these outside influences.
I will place special emphasis on keeping you motivated and productive while looking for a new career. I look forward to working closely with you on this often times scary, but ultimately manageable journey.
