Meet Your Career Coach

your career coach Trish McGrath

Hi! I am Trish (Thomas) McGrath and it is very nice to meet you. The Chief Success Officer of EDGE Career Solutions, author and Certified Career Transition Coach, I firmly believe that there are ‘right fit’ jobs for each of us. I am on a mission to help people build happier professional lives in careers they actually enjoy. Choosing to leave the corporate world at age 48 for more meaningful work, I learned firsthand that it is never too late to reinvent yourself in a fulfilling encore career. I want you to have the same career satisfaction and will work tirelessly to help you achieve it.

Experienced, High Energy and Expertly Trained

Applying 20+ years of private practice, higher education and corporate experience, I help people plan, prepare and take action so they can achieve their career goals. I am an active member of Career Thought Leaders, the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches and Career Directors International, dedicated to serving my clients with integrity and upholding the highest professional standards. I have completed more than 1,800 hours of training and continuing education to keep up on the latest hiring trends, professional branding, executive resume writing and advanced LinkedIn strategies to access the hidden job market.

Giving Back to the Community

It is important to me to be involved in the community and pay it forward. For many years, I volunteered my time to a variety of non-profit organizations including CT Alliance for Victims of Violence and their Families, Dress for Success, JETS job search program, SCORE, South Park Inn homeless shelter and Equistrides therapeutic horseback riding program.

In addition to my pro bono work, I teach LinkedIn training workshops and present on job search preparedness at local businesses, libraries, chambers of commerce, job search groups, high schools and universities.

Your Personal Career Coach

One thing that differentiates me from my peers is the personal 1:1 service I offer each of my clients. You will work directly with me, not a subcontractor or less experienced staffer. This diagram illustrates the journey we will take together through the career coaching process. I take pride in the quality of my work and the way I collaborate with each client. To accelerate your success, I will teach you the best job search strategies and help you prepare so you confidently ace job interviews and win attractive job offers. If you are ready to move your career forward, call me today!
