The Benefits of Working with a Career Coach

There is a great deal of hiring taking place in early 2016, but the competition for top jobs is fierce. As the confidence in the job market rises, jobseekers in transition must compete with people who are employed full-time but looking for a better position. You do not have to go through this alone. A career coach can help you gain the competitive EDGE.

Working with a career coach can accelerate your job search results and reduce the frustration typically experienced in a DIY job search. Offering insightful guidance, I will help you navigate the “hidden job market” to find the right opportunities, and develop a structured job search plan that breaks down the overwhelming process into manageable steps. Hiring a career coach provides a significant ROI. Typically, my clients win more job interviews and land job offers with attractive compensation packages.

3 things that differentiate me from other career coaches and resume experts:

  • the amount of time I personally spend with each of my clients
  • the industry research I do before every project and
  • the fact that I write all client documents myself

If you live within 100 miles of my Central CT office, I like to conduct a face-to-face Client Intake Session. After all, the better I know you, the more effectively I can market you to potential employers. I have learned over the years that the nuggets that come out of our conversations are what take a resume from average to stellar.

I conduct thorough industry research before each project so that I can help you position yourself as the ideal candidate. This is a crucial first step in the branding development process, as we need to speak the employers’ language and address their needs.

It is hard to write about yourself in a way that resonates with recruiters and hiring managers. I offer an objective view of your skills, experience and marketability, and can articulate these in a way that entices employers to want to get to know you. I design powerful career marketing documents that present you as the solution to the employers’ needs. Your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile work together to solidify your professional brand and are most effective when used in conjunction with a strategic job search plan.
