what-to-expectYour call for career “HELP!” is solution-focused:
GET A BETTER JOB, improve a resume,
PREPARE FOR AN INTERVIEW, plan for college,

After an initial intake, our appointment includes clarification, exploration and personalized action steps. A series of 2-3 sessions completed within a 4-6 week period can capitalize on fresh momentum and traction.

TIP for productive sessions:
ENGAGE YOUR OWN LAPTOP & TAKE NOTES.

Demo your level of computer competence to get immediate feedback on your strengths and weaknesses in this area. Virtual sessions allowing shared screens work wonders!
Access preferred resources & assessment results. Hands-on guidance with research, social networking, documents, portfolios, online job boards, databases, emails, etc.

Career Changers and Job Seekers consider: 1-Defining your interests and skills- Assessments (personality, interests, values, etc.); 2-Uncovering hidden job markets & options; 3-Resume improvement; 4-Job search scripting; 5-Mock interviewing (on or off site, video-options); 6-Stress reduction.

College Planning Families consider: 1-Appropriate assessments (interests & college major search); 2-Resume and personal statement; 3-College essay solutions; 4-Checklist and deadline review. Additional topics include: mock interviews and personalized academic success skill building (time management, goal setting, study and test taking skills, stress management).

Clients keep in touch beyond our initial appointments for targeted “career check-ups” for pre-interview pep talks, resume updates, re-inspiration and focus. All sessions include personalized feedback in between appointments via text, emails or calls. My accessibility with clients can be flexible and adaptable to meet various schedules and will be clarified up front.

Our resume and document writing projects include an initial consultation (phone or email) along with the time to create and finalize the document(s) based on the information that you provide. We are not strictly a typing service, because a good resume or other documents requires an effective review of you and your targets. Student academic resumes are completed early on in the college planning process and set the foundation for a lifelong career management skill.

We work on an hourly rate by phone, online or as arranged for document work. Assessment instruments may have additional fees, but not typically. Gift Certificates are available & appreciated by new graduates and job seekers! We are strong local High School Supporters, mention your high school mascot for a 10% discount – maybe more if it is Cy Creek!

Contact us with any questions you have about career planning services. We will make arrangements that work with your goals in mind. We are working 100% remotely these days – taking one day at a time, and keeping goals in focus along with you.
