Career Coaching

Make the journey as rewarding as the destination.

You’ve heard it before: to find a new job or create more career opportunities you need to differentiate yourself from the competition. But what does that really mean? It means getting down to who you are and being clear about what you want.

When you align your strengths with the things you are really passionate about, it’s a breakthrough moment. It allows you to stand out, and exude a natural, unshakable career confidence – something that you will carry with you long after our coaching sessions have ended.

Career Coaching Services

Our one-on-one coaching sessions are specifically designed to be practical, actionable and valuable. Every coaching session is custom created to address your individual career challenges. Some of the services may include:

Career Clarity – Feeling a little lost about the direction of your career? Or are you unfulfilled, stuck or burnt out? It’s time to clarify your goals. Working together, we examine what’s holding you back and remove any self-defeating habits or career obstacles. Get the focus you need to find and follow your ideal career path.

Interview Coaching – With a strong knowledge of your personal brand, you are able to present and sell your strengths during any interview – in a way that feels natural and not fake or forced. I work with you to prepare for an interview, feel relaxed (really!) and make a positive impression as an ideal candidate.

Job Search Accountability – Being accountable vastly increases your likelihood of success. With scheduled check-ins, I keep you on-track, positive and focused on your goals. During this job search support, we will discuss methods of improvement and celebrate your successes along the way.

Salary Negotiation – Not being compensated with the salary you deserve? As a certified coach, I can help you polish your negotiation skills to earn a better income or array of benefits, bonuses and options. I’ll help you establish your individual value and prepare for salary negotiations for a new job or for your next employment review.

Why a Career Coach?

A career coach can help shorten your job search by offering an outside look at your career marketing materials and pinpointing job search skills that need to be developed. A career coach is your job-search champion, offering new perspectives, fresh ways of thinking and career brainstorming.

You may need a career coach if you are:

  • Seeing no results in your current job search
  • Tired of being passed over for promotions
  • Worried about downsizing
  • At a career crossroads and need to examine options
  • Trying to climb the corporate ladder
