Richard Phillips, Career Counselor and Coach


Richard was extremely helpful during my recent job search.  He provided outstanding strategic and tactical advice including resume clarification, cover letter suggestions and great interview preparation.  A tangible sign I actually learned something from him is the fact this note is brief but (hopefully) effective.  I highly recommend Richard.

Richard Phillips is outstanding. He has worked with all three of my adult children and they were quite impressed.

One was offered and accepted a job as the Sr. V.P. of Strategy and Finance at a large US corporation.
One was offered and accepted the position of  Business Development Manager of Forensic and Dispute Services at a worldwide corporation after 17 interviews.
And one evaluated all of the options, including some other job offers, and decided to stay where she was. By doing this she earned a four figure bonus on a huge account.

Give him a call. He coached all three to the finish line!

Hi Richard - Thanks very much for your counseling last year (and also in years past on other career issues).  Our discussions last year helped me stay focused rather than distracted by the slowness of the promotion process, and as a result contributed to my receiving the promotion this time.  My team has grown from 11 people last year to 15 now, and I'm thoroughly enjoying all of it.
-Best regards,


I wanted to let you know that I recently accepted a position with Baxter in Hayward.  Not surprisingly, I obtained this position through networking.  Thank you for all of your help with my job search.  I will definitely continue to use the networking skills we discussed in order to further my career.
