Being in the market for a new job or preparing to launch a new career is a tough place to be, and certainly no one likes feeling that they are spinning their wheels or unable to get started.


So, how do you know when it’s time to get help from a professional?


Can you relate to any of the following statements?

  • You are overwhelmed by information and advice.
  • You did an online search for resume writers or career coaches and don’t know what services you need or who you can trust.
  • You are thinking about changing jobs or careers and don’t know where to begin.
  • Your job search is going nowhere (or you just don’t know where or how to begin).
  • You’ve been sending out resumes and no one is calling.
  • Your résumé lacks focus – it reads more like an obituary of your career than a strategic marketing document.
  • You’re wasting time going to interviews that aren’t a good fit.
  • You spend most days trolling job boards and applying for anything that looks promising.
  • You’ve been looking for work far too long and are convinced that no one is hiring – you might even be starting to think that you’re not employable.
  • You lack focus and seem to drift aimlessly.
  • People who know you are job searching keep suggesting openings and companies that don’t appeal to you.
  • When friends and family members ask you what kind of work you are seeking, your typical answer is “Something in… [computers, finance, healthcare].”
  • You can’t answer these 3 critical questions: Who are you? What do you do? What can you do for the employer?

If you can relate to any of the above statements
(or most of them!), it’s time for you to
seriously consider getting unstuck.

Here’s how I can help:

A “Get Unstuck” Job Search Consultation is similar to a doctor appointment with a general practitioner, during which you discuss your health concerns, share your symptoms and learn about some suggested treatment plans (including referrals to specialists, if needed.)

During this 90 minute telephone session, we will explore your goals, discuss your most pressing issues and concerns, and begin formulating a strategy to get you going in the right direction!  

Each session is personally customized to meet your most pressing needs and concerns. The following are some suggestions for how you might want to spend this time:


  • Discuss your career experience, identify characteristics of your ideal job, explore career options and begin mapping a course for your next transition.
  • Take a look at your online identity (LinkedIn profile, Google rankings, email correspondence) and discuss how to tighten up your brand/image.
  • Review your résumé and cover letter(s) against targeted job leads, assess how well things align and get quick tips you can implement right away to increase their effectiveness.
  • Discuss your current job search activities and figure out how and where to spend your time searching.
  • Develop a target list of companies and learn about company research tools and strategies.
  • Come up with a professional networking strategy, along with some specific ways to get started.
  • Address any real or perceived employment barriers and develop solutions for addressing them

The goal is to inspire some AH-HA moments that will get you moving forward quickly and producing the results you deserve! Following this session, I will send you a proposal listing some of the services I am recommending and their costs (which vary according to the complexity of one’s career.) If I feel you can benefit from working with a professional whose specialty better aligns with your needs, I will provide you with names and contact information of professionals I know through various industry connections.

Depending on your particular situation and reasons for contacting me, you will also receive:

A Pre-Session Questionnaire – So I will know a little about your situation before we speak.
An Online Behavioral Style Assessment (DISC) – Discover how your personal style impacts your career satisfaction and approach to finding a job.
A Self-Evaluation Résumé Checklist – See how your résumé measures up against the competition.
Recommended Resources, Tools & Professional Assistance – Personalized to your particular situation and budget.

Call 301-766-2032 or email me today to schedule your Get Unstuck Consultation – it just may be the best step you have ever taken to gain control of your job search and move your career in the right direction! The cost for this session is $275.00, payable by Visa, Mastercard, Discover or PayPal debit.

You are under no obligation to purchase further services or adhere to any of the advice and recommendations.

And, if you have a limited budget, this may be exactly the service you need to get you going in the right direction!

Still not sure if this is worth the investment?

Here’s what one job seeker had to say about her Get Unstuck consultation…

“Sometimes one needs a push in the right direction irrespective of what he/she knows. You did that for me, built my confidence, a little hand-holding, and now I am going full-force. The protocols I thought were difficult and the jobs I thought I could not handle are now definite possibilities.

I think all the opportunities are there for me to take advantage of. Thank you for reawakening that drive and confidence that got me this far. Your grateful protégé…”
