Why We Should Talk
I’ve always had a knack for getting hired. Early in my career, when I was experimenting with various angles on the marketing question, I interviewed all the time. And more often then not, I got an offer. Some of the jobs were unsuitable, like the time a guy interviewed me for a half hour where he spent most of it talking about himself, and then deemed me the perfect candidate. And once I started, I found that the job was all about data analysis and he was crazy.
Later I spent a couple of years in grad school, consulting to lots of branding and design companies to earn a living. When I started my company, a portal for the creative world, I knew all the firms. And I spent a lot of my time introducing candidates to firms and firms to each other. I am a natural connector and I love to do it.
When I became head of marketing for the global trade association for the executive search industry, I met everyone in search and learned about the candidate experience and what companies were looking for. I realized that my passion all along had been understanding how to convert individual backgrounds and strengths into packaged, well-presented candidates. And voilà, I became a career advisor.
For the past six years, in my official capacity as a career advisor, I’ve helped many people improve their careers and discover work and work environments that better suit them. It’s what I love to do.
So no matter what your background or experience level is, if you think your career could use improvement, give me a call. I always meet prospective clients before an engagement so it won’t hurt to have a conversation. And I can work in person or by phone; I’ve done both successfully.
I look forward to hearing from you.
