Career Coaching

A career coach is a skilled advisor who helps you to hone your message, materials (i.e., resume, cover letters), and job search strategy, as well as assists you in evaluating your networking techniques, practicing for interviews, and building confidence through feedback and insight. A career coach serves as an accountability partner to help you stay focused as you discover what you want in your career.

Why Career Coaching

Setting and achieving goals can be difficult and overwhelming, and change is hard even for those who embrace it. Having the support and guidance needed during times of transition or indecision can be extremely helpful in mapping a course of discovery and action. A career coach can be that support system. How I can help:

  • career change

  • job search

  • interview preparation

  • career-related documents support (resume, vita, cover letter, grants)

  • networking 

  • professional presence/communication

  • confidence-building

Jeffrey,
Private Career Coach and Part-Time Academic Advior

Before I received career coaching, my knowledge was basically from working on-the-job. Working with Heather to improve my coaching techniques increased my knowledge and creativity and raised my confidence in my abilities. I am so grateful for what I've learned and I'm now more excited than I've ever been about facilitating effective career services with my clients.

Bri,
Career Coach and Workforce Development Professional

I have been a long-time workforce development professional who has decided to start my own coaching business. I sought Heather's help in getting set up not only with what services to offer but how to work with different clientele than I have been used to in the  WD world. The experience was so helpful and I recommend it to anyone.
