Career Coaching - Job Search - Career Counseling

Changing careers or changing jobs is a formidable task for most people. You don’t have the time, resources or knowledge of the ever-changing job market, social media, networking or latest interviewing techniques. Remember, career management is not taught in school. I am a certified career coach with 20+ years’ experience who helps people find the right “fit”, not just a job. I will help you identify and find the right job or career and work with you through the process to make it happen no matter how long it takes! It’s not about finding a new job, it’s about finding the right “FIT”. Also, consider we’re in a volitile job market with Covid 19, so the approach and techniques are completely different today and for the forseeable future.

IF YOU ARE ...

- Considering a job or career change

- Looking to improve your work/life balance

- Working from home, furloughed or laid off, now is a great time to consider your career/job options

Companies are hiring. Clients are interviewing. I can help!

What Our Happy Clients Are Saying

I had never worked with a career coach before but with the increasingly changing job market and having been out of it for so long, I took a leap of faith into this relationship. Boy am I glad I did! Tom is empathetic and honest and always available for any questions you may have. He challenges you to leave you comfort zone which opens you up to new opportunities you'd otherwise never find on your own. He made my resume stand out among the rest which increased the number of call backs I received and allowed me to be selective in my new job search. I would recommend Tom in a heartbeat!
