Been working for a while but looking to upgrade your job-search materials?
Currently doing your own thing but ready to join the job market?
Are you a freelancer eager to leave the gig economy?
Took a break and now you’re ready to dive back into the marketplace?
It starts with you! When you are ready to plan your next career step, contact me to set up a discovery call.
Bring your goals and questions plus a copy of your current resume to this phone consultation. I can take a look and advise you on what direction you should take with it.
I will provide a quote for my services, and we can decide whether or not to proceed.
Everything going forward stems from the all-important interview.
I send a questionnaire to lay the groundwork for this conversation. Then we schedule 1 to 1 ½ hours to discuss your work history, current position, and ultimate career goal.
My background as a journalist makes me expert at bringing out your personality and strengths. I listen carefully to find out what lights up for you career-wise. And then…
Now’s the time to combine your work history, your strengths & talents, and your goals into a one-of-a-kind resume.
- Targeted for a specific job or general
- Applicant tracking system (ATS) friendly
- Thorough and concise
- With modern formatting
- Customizable cover letter, thank you notes, and other professional correspondence available.
Let your personality shine on LinkedIn! I update your profile with updated About, Skills, and Experience sections; design your banner; and coach you on best posting practices.
LinkedIn is invaluable for networking at all levels within an organization. I can coach you on how to take full advantage of it.
Grow your connections. Demonstrate your expertise. Research companies in your industry.
Job-hunt coaching can be critical to finding the job you love! I help you:
- Know your true value. Be aware of the benefits you bring to the marketplace.
- Focus your search through research. Which companies fit you and your needs? Dig deeper to see if their actions match their values.
- Develop a plan with benchmarks. And remember, I’m on hand to serve as your accountability partner.
Afterwards, I remain in your corner whenever you face challenges at work or during another job search.
What do you get when you combine a B.A. in religion and an M.A. in counseling with stints as a journalist and career coach? In my case, you get a resume writer and job-hunt coach with decades of experience helping job seekers find their true north.
Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, I often walked in the woods with my grandfather. He pointed out wild mushrooms, and he showed me how moss grows in the coolest, dampest spots on the north side of trees. Even as a child, I loved the idea of being perfectly lost one moment but having a compass pointing North at the same time.
Everyone has their own True North. This mix of your mission, vision, and values keeps you on track in life. I listen for these greater truths within my clients’ stories. What parts of their work history light them up? What blocks their way, and why? When I reflect these patterns back to them, they see a clear path to new opportunities.
