Cooking Up Something New

I'm cooking up something new. And would love your help to create it. All you have to do to participate is complete this 3-minute survey. I've been thinking for awhile now that it's time for something new to help people figure out what they want to do next. From what...

Three Steps to a Dream Job

I like to say there are 3 steps to a dream job. First,you have to get interviews for jobs you really want. Next, you need to get offers from the jobs you really want. And finally, you need to negotiate the offer into the job you really want. When I...

Success Stories

Changing your career trajectory isn't easy. There's quite a bit written about how challenging it can be to alter your path and not enough on how possible it is to make significant career changes at any stage in life. Morphing is possible. And happens literally every day as clients get...

What To Do Next?

We're in a time where many aren't wanting to go from a situation they don't much love (even hate) into one they don't much love (even hate). Many want to figure out (maybe for the first time in their lives) what to do next. As one client put it, "I...

And the areas they are strong in, when it comes to the process of seeking a job, are different as well. That's how come one-size-fits-all just doesn't work.  To...
