Description of service

I received help putting together a resume, general advice on the job market, help with presenting myself in interviews and networking tips. Cost was $150/hour or $700 for 5 hours paid in advance. The coach also had contacts in recruitment firms that were useful.

Review of Service

The coach I worked with was very professional, organized and supportive. She did an excellent job whipping my resume into shape. Her advice on how to present myself in an interview was useful and not only helped me clarify what I had to offer to companies, but also helped me figure out exactly what kind os positions I was interested in.


A personal reference is always the best way to get to find someone in the first place. I was given recommendations from friends and also from recruiters that I had worked with.

Before you meet and spend any many, see if you can talk to them for a short time on the telephone, or even exchange some emails. If you feel that you have a rapport, and that they seem as if they can help you, then move forward. They may offer a discount to pay for sessions up front, only take this if you are confident that you will be able to work with the coach and that you will need the number of sessions you are paying for.

Be warned that once you get talking, time can go by very quickly. Before you go into a session, have some idea of what you want to achieve in that session and make sure that the conversation stays on target.
