Advantage Career Solutions
Richard Phillips, Career Counselor and Coach
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
       - Anatole France
I am a career counselor and coach with over 15 years experience working with groups and individuals. I have a Master's degree in Counseling. Prior to starting my career coaching business in 1991, I was Training Manager for a division of the Dun and Bradstreet Company. Also included in my background are experience in family-owned businesses, high tech companies, and the public school system. My coaching clients work at some of the most well-known companies in the Silicon Valley. I have a thorough familiarity with the issues and working environments that characterize life in Silicon Valley.

The focus of my work is to help talented and motivated professionals achieve long-term career satisfaction and prosperity. I believe that when people experience the freedom to do their best work they give maximum benefit to themselves, their organizations and their communities.

When I'm not helping my clients with their career challenges and dreams, I can be found behind the lens of a camera perfecting my skills as a photographer.  All the photographs on this site were made by me, including the images on the posters in the Inspiration Gallery.

I look forward to helping you do your best work.
