I am pursuing my passion...are you?

My significant experience in research and executive search allows me to bring a unique perspective to the job hunting process. For the past twenty years I have been fortunate to be able to pursue my passion successfully working with numerous professionals and entrepreneurs by providing guidance through coaching to clarify values, define skills, and explore possibilities to help achieve specific career goals.  Through my coaching activities I have developed an invaluable network of professionals, often experts in their field, who serve as advisors and mentors to my clients.

Serving a diverse clientele, approximately 40% of my practice is comprised of employed individuals who are interested in confidentially exploring their career options, 30% are professionals from traditional outplacement programs, and 30% are students currently pursuing an MBA degree or recent graduate students who are interested in leveraging their newly acquired degree and skills

Of course, the foundation of every job search begins with a well-written resume.  Whether functional, chronological or a combination of both, I focus on design and content to capture the reader’s attention with a well-formatted, crisp resume depicting measurable achievements in an easy to read format.     With an ever changing job market and the challenges that it brings, as your career advisor I will help you meet your goals by working with you one-on-one to:

  • Identify and leverage your skills and strengths
  • Explore potential career options
  • Create a marketing plan and develop your marketing portfolio (resume, biography, VisualCV)
  • Apply specific research techniques to help you find the ideal job
  • Help you become an expert in the interview process

My experience spans a broad spectrum of industries and functions in the United States and abroad including experience in entrepreneurship and corporate governance.
