Q&A

Describe your coaching style.

My style centers on asking great questions. It's important to dig into your experience and get an understanding of both the “why” and the “where” of your career. I’m a believer that the best way to bring clarity to careers is through conversation.

Who is your ideal client and why?

My ideal client has an idea of what they want to do next, but maybe can’t quite figure out how to get there.

How do you measure success with a client?

I measure success through activity in a job search. There is so much that goes into a successful job search. Yes, even luck. When you consider the fact that only 2% of applicants to an online position get called for an interview and that over 75% of jobs are still filled through referrals, the best measure of actual success is simply activity.

What is your coaching superpower?

I enjoy helping clients utilize their network and stand out in a job search.
