Check out this short video to learn how we can work together to achieve success in your job search and career.

How can I help?

You are a mid-manager, senior manager, or executive who wants to capture a new career opportunity…

And you know the competition will be fierce. You need someone on your team who can contribute both expertise and dedication to help you blow past the obstacles to a successful job search.

Someone who can partner with you to shape and execute your job search and career plan with maximum impact and effectiveness.

In short, you need an expert you can trust to be there for you when it counts, from start to finish. If you’re as committed to your career success as I will be to helping you achieve it, you probably  need me!

Do you relate to any of these statements?

  • I need to carry out a highly confidential job search, but I don’t have someone I can trust to work with me on it, someone I can safely share sensitive information with.
  • My resume worked earlier in my career, but I’m concerned it won’t take me to the next level now.
  • I don’t have a LinkedIn profile and don’t have the time to bother with it, but everyone keeps telling me I need one. What’s so important about being on LinkedIn, anyway?
  • My resume gets me some interviews, but I haven’t interviewed for a job in 15 years, and everything’s different now. I’m sure I’ve missed out on jobs I should have landed because I blew the interview.
  • I feel like I’m spinning my wheels trying to do the whole job search thing by myself.

If any of these career challenges sounds close to a situation you’re experiencing, help is available and more accessible than you might think.

By developing career marketing tools that showcase your value persuasively and using a personalized, value-oriented approach, I can increase the effectiveness of your job search – and in some cases actually shorten it. Being able to get results like that is what excites me about the work I do for clients.


“Without your great work, I wouldn’t have gotten the job I am currently in. I only sent out two resumes, and both companies wanted to hire me.”
–Marie Romero, Sales Management


You don’t have to feel stuck with any aspect of your job search. I have successfully assisted countless mid-management to executive-level clients to pursue and capture their desired positions.

  7. If you won the lottery tomorrow, would you quit your job?
