What’s next for you?
You have decided to that now’s the time for you to move to your next career chapter. Perhaps the timing was forced upon you. Or maybe you’ve simply decided it’s time for something new. But before you start, here are several key elements for a successful job search:
Job Search Tools
In a job search, you are marketing a product and that product you’re “selling” is you. It’s difficult to look objectively about your own accomplishments and identify what a potential hiring manager will be looking for. Although you have great skills, you are probably not the best person to write your own resume. It takes a specially trained individual who is up on what hiring managers need and want today. By investing in yourself, you will save money in the long run to get the job of your dreams faster. Don’t wait until that perfect job is posted. Get yourself ready NOW!
- You need to make sure you have the right personal marketing materials ready for your job search. These days, hiring managers get hundreds of applications for any one open position. Your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn Profile need to showcase your qualifications and paint a story about why you are the best person for the job.
- We all know a looking for a job can be daunting. In today’s marketplace, you need to do more than just submit resume after resume to job boards. Do you know how to enlist social media and your valuable contacts to help you find your ideal job? Are you on LinkedIn? If not, you need to be! In addition to an engaging LI profile, you need to know how to utilize your contacts in a directed networking search. It’s been estimated that 80% to 90% of jobs are landed because of networking.

Let’s face it, these are tumultuous times. The pace of change continues to increase velocity with no slow-down in sight. So how do you navigate the storms? How do you develop resilience in both your career and your life?
I only take on a few dedicated coaching clients at a time. I love helping managers and professionals who recognize that who they are is more important than what they do… and who they are enriches their work.
As you explore my website, you are probably wondering what makes me different. There are many resume writers and career coaches out there, what makes me right for you?
The short version is that I have worked in human resources for over 25 years. I know how employers and hiring managers think. During my career, I’ve worked in billion dollar companies as well as small organizations—in diverse industries including non-profit, manufacturing, distribution, sales, and pharmaceuticals.
I’ve been often described by my colleagues as someone who is objective, open-minded, down to earth, perceptive, creative, approachable, and fair. But perhaps more important than my experience and credentials is that I’ve been where you are. I’ve been laid off. I’ve changed careers. I’ve loved some jobs and hated others. I know how it feels to live with the threat of losing your job constantly hanging over your head and like many of you. I know your fears, frustrations as well as your dreams and hopes.
My life and career philosophy were recently summed up beautifully by Oprah:
“The secret to life is not to build a resume that is just a listing of what you want to be, but of who you want to be. Not just what you want to accomplish, but why. Your resume of life is not just a listing of your titles and positions, but a story about your purpose—your true calling.”
Oprah, Excerpt, 2013 Commencement Speech, Harvard University
