"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to     work a day in your life." - Confucius

Searching for a jo is easier when you know what you are seeking.

Job search coaching provides motivation, support,

and big-picture perspective.

Keeping up-to-date on job databases and keyword searches and, of course, tailoring your resume and cover letter all contribute to a successful job search strategy, but you will yield better results if you narrow down your choices of job positions and companies.


I like to start with a one-hour session in person to ask you about your overall approach and ways we can strategize together to streamline your job hunt. We spend time reviewing your resume, a recent cover letter, your LinkedIn and your “basic message/elevator pitch.” If any of these pieces need work, we take steps to get them in shape, but if you are “good to go,” we embark on a four-session Job Search Package in which I keep you accountable and tailor your resume, cover letter and basic message to help you land a job like a pro.


4-Session Job Search Package: $350


Basic Message Only: $135 minimum (1-hour session + out-of-session wordsmithing)

Individual sessions also available.

(A 15% discount is granted for a 4-Session Job Search Package once a month to those who have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Discount can also be applied to Brass Tacks Package.)

Brass Tacks Package

Sessions can take place in person or via Zoom and can also cover interview prep, job search, LinkedIn coaching, networking assistance, small business coaching or assistance creating a website to showcase a CV or portfolio or launch a consulting business. $450
