Whether you've been laid off or are looking for a new job voluntarily, I offer asssistance with organizing a high-energy, results-producing job search.  If you've been at your job search for a while and are making little or no progress, I can help you analyze what needs to change to get you on track.  If you're just beginning a job search, I can save you time and frustration by helping ensure that you are following a targeted, step-by-step process. My services include help with resume writing, networking, how to find job leads, preparing for interviews and perhaps most importantly, coaching during the salary negotiation process to ensure that your skills and knowledge bring you back the compensation you deserve.

I offer a free 30 minute telephone session to help you get started toward solving your career challenges - such as getting what you really want. The session is an opportunity for you to talk with a professional counselor and coach about what you want from your career or job and to get some initial feedback on what some solutions might be. It is also gives you the chance to experience my counseling style to see if I'm someone you'd like to have help you.
