I have many years  of experience working with clients on a daily basis to assist them in discovering new careers and finding employment; the experience I hold includes both group facilitation and one-on-one coaching. I have worked with clients from many different levels of work and work experience from Owner/CEO of companies that went public and sold for millions to mid-level executives;  executive assistants and clerical or customer service workers; and  entry level workers in various fields and levels of experience. I give the same care to each person and want to see you succeed in whatever  career endeavor you choose. I am an expert resume writer and have been fondly named “The Resume Queen” by colleagues that see me at work every day.

How does Career Coaching work? 
A personal career coaching session includes one 30 minute session over the phone where we will spend time focusing on you and your career needs. It is a question and answer session to get to know each other and start to build a relationship. Subsequent sessions will be decided by us as a team depending on your individual needs and the level of coaching you would like to encompass. There are several levels of coaching with the basic coaching starting at 30 minutes of one-on-one telephone contact. This level might cover an array of various career questions you may have, practice answering interview questions and assistance in formulating answers to tough questions, attitude and motivation coaching to keep you moving in the right direction with a positive pattern, networking tips, and other “how to” aspects of the career search process.

The time will be spent on where you are now, where you think you want to go, and how to set goals to get there.

There may be practice interview question and answer sessions, preparing for an interview, job fair readiness, or networking opportunities.

Focus will be on many areas including on your resume, visualization and how to be a great employee using the skills you already have and suggestions for enhancing those skills while adding and enhancing other talents

For those wanting to advance in a career I can give tips on customer service skills, conflict resolution, workplace etiquette and more…

There will also be opportunities to join in group coaching sessions and network with others seeking similar information and sharing of ideas
