How I Work

My approach to job and career change is based on foundational principles that underlie success combined with custom, personal guidance, and service.

  • Clarity about what you offer an employer-- how you work, how you lead, the impacts and accomplishments you’ve had, and your values, strengths, talents, skills.
  • Clarity about what an employer wants so you can translate, orally and in writing, what you’ve done and who you are into a story about how you are a good fit, even where you’ve not done the specific job before.
  • Strategies for developing career documents that pass through applicant tracking software and quickly demonstrate to recruiters and hiring managers/executives that you have what they want.
  • Knowledge and skills for tapping the hidden job market where 65% to 75% of good job openings aren’t advertised and where there is less competition. It’s possible to do this gently, even if you’re an introvert.
  • Preparation to stand out in job interviews with confidence and poise.
  • Tracking what you do for self-motivation and evaluation of your approach.

By applying the principles of successful job and career change, you can stand out among candidates, get good interviews, talk about how you fit the position and provide value, and land a meaningful job where you can contribute while having a thriving personal life.

The Process

Clients say that I uncover, recognize, and communicate values, gifts, and contributions that they haven’t yet seen in themselves.

For resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles

A questionnaire and an in-depth interview guide you to identify what’s unique about you and the impacts you’ve had on and off the job. Within two weeks afterward, you’ll receive the first resume draft to review.

You’ll also receive links to guides and worksheets to Navigate the Hidden Job Market and Excel in Job Interviews.

For those who want more personal guidance and skills

You can work with me in short sessions to Find Your Next Career Goal, Navigate the Hidden Job Market, and/or Excel in Job Interviews.

You can also practice interviewing in a Mock Interview session and get Ongoing Support for a major career change.
