3 Ways Career Coaching Gets The Best Jobs And Leads
Anyone can write a resume and create a LinkedIn profile.
Most Resume Writers will charge you $$$ to $,$$$ for a pretty template résumé. They work on volume, and have junior people do the work for pennies on the dollar. You want someone who proves your résumé works. And doesn't end up costing you more.
Then they copy and paste into LinkedIn. But they have no real understanding of how LinkedIn works! I've been mastering LinkedIn for years - enough to be called a LinkedIn Expert.
So if you want to know what works and why – after years of trial and error, and results – keep reading…
Why I Help
I am passionate about helping you navigate your career, because I’ve seen how things can change – budget cuts, rightsizing/offshoring, economy tanks, COVID-19 hits. I've seen that most people at best are disengaged at work.
I help you leverage the seconds you get to land that dream job.
I provide career coaching that puts you in charge of the rest of your career, not just the next job - so you can love Mondays again!
16 years ago, I put my resume on a job board. I got a job with relocation the next day. But that no longer works!
I learned early in my career, that I was the only one in charge. So I’ve learned a lot about what works on resumes. And I’ve been on all sides of hiring…
- on a committee putting out job ads and reviewing applicants
- “one of those guys” having seconds before an interview to review YOUR resume and then interview you
- a jobseeker, getting interviewed and making all the classic mistakes – learning the hard way!
Then about 6 years ago, I changed one word on my LinkedIn profile. I had a recruiter notice it the next day. Yep, got the job! Even though I was consulting and it was that company’s job to find me one!
So I started helping others. And a few years ago, LinkedIn approached me to help them review LinkedIn profiles. I learned the top 12 sections of a LinkedIn profile after LinkedIn hired me to review LinkedIn profiles. What they didn’t tell me was how to make them better. That’s where my LinkedIn Profile Writing Process kicks in!
So I have lots of rich history upon which to offer my career coaching process!

What I Do
I do my research. Often, as things are changing all the time.
I can do it for you with no explanation, do it and explain it, or simply explain it in a coaching session. We’re talking resumes, cover letters, job interviews, LinkedIn, ghosting, salary negotiation, etc.
But a good career coach should not just tell you to do something or do it for you:
❝You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.❞(Chinese proverb)
