Mapping your career

Successful job search coaching begins with the basic tools—the resume and cover letter—a glimpse of your skills, expertise, and a bit of personality, too. Prior to our coaching session, you’ll send along your resume and cover letter you’ve created, along with a description of the industries/sectors you’re targeting. I like to call this your “career passion.”

You’re unique and so is your search. We customize, maximizing your talents and interests, by fully understanding you and where you want to be.

Working together, our expertise, your input, we’ll define opportunities—idea-generation/career research, strategies to connect with that dream job, find that often-elusive “best fit,” and put you on the path to that desired career.
