Is This for You?

Who we work with (and who should take a pass.)

We're for you if...

  • You want your materials to command respect and elevate you without sounding salesy or cheesy.​ 

  • You want to stay competitive and know if your nickel and dime your image, they'll nickel and dime your salary

  • You've been putting off leaving your job because you the backlog of updates and things you need to do is overwhleming. It's easier to procrastinate.

  • You're ready to make a change. The clock's ticking and you're ready to go. 

Take a pass if... 

 

  • You're a bargain shopper looking for a volume superstore where every resumé re-hashes the same tired phrases, "highly-organized, results-driven {insert title} with a demonstrated history of accomplishment." 

  • You want an answer to, 'What should I do with my life?" That's for life coach territory. Our superpower is delivering a laser-focused assessment of your skills and experience, then combining precise words and strategy placing you on the top of your market. 

  • You have an affinity for the phrase, "I'd like to speak to the manager."

Black Background

Is this you?

I've got experience but feel uninformed. I need someone I can trust to help me see all of my options.

"I'm tired of the employer holding all the cards.   

"I need someone who can capture the nuances in my lifetime of experience."

"I don't like the feeling of 'winging it' with my career. I want to talk to someone who has answers."

"People who are less qualified than me are getting better jobs. They seem to have insider information that gives them an edge. I want that."

"Not feeling confident about my resumé and LinkedIn makes me less confident in interviews."

If you've thought any of these, you owe it to yourself to talk to us.

Without even trying, you’ll pass your insider know-how and career savvy down to your children. And it’s never too late. Whether they’re toddlers or out of the house, I’ll give you the tools to make sure your kids become career savvy just like you.

Free yourself to focus on what matters 

"I fiddled with my LinkedIn profile for a month and finally I said, 'Why the hell am I doing this?' I gave it all to Courtney. Instant relief.
