CEO & Founder
US News & World Report "On Careers" blogger. I provide nuts & bolts coaching for job seekers: Resume, Networking, LinkedIn & Interviewing,
I'm passionate about helping people get jobs and move their career forward. I love coaching my clients all throughout the U.S.
I craft compelling resumes LinkedIn profiles, develop personal branding statements, mentor clients about social media, networking & interviewing techniques; and coach clients to negotiate for the largest possible compensation.
Extensive coaching, public speaking experience.
WHAT I DO:

2. SET REALISTIC GOALS.
3. TEACH LINKEDIN SKILLS for effective job hunting.
4. ENHANCE NETWORKING SKILLS - who to meet, how to meet them, and how to leverage each interaction.
5. PREPARE FOR INTERVIEWS - by demonstrating value and learning how to respond to the tough questions.
6. REVEAL how to negotiate for the best possible compensation packages.
I understand how job seekers are evaluated by HR and hiring managers. I understand why some candidates succeed, while others with equally solid qualifications are passed over... and I coach my clients to work the process to their advantage.

To each client, I bring my knowledge of how to most effectively hunt, target, and land a job that will provide you with the dignity of work and the opportunity for professional advancement.
