Career Communication Services
Whether you're a job seeker, hopeful grant recipient, or entrepreneur launching a new website, your professional story is key. You have to send a clear message--tell the right story--to achieve your desired results: a new job, funding for your work, or new inquiries for your business.
That's where I come in: your Career Communication Coach.
why 'communication coach'?
My mission is simple: to empower you to tell your professional story in a way that is clear, confident, and compelling.
For me, this process that I walk through with my clients is my own unique, nerdy love language. It is a great privilege to coach you on how to effectively and clearly tell your professional story, both in writing and in person.
The word "coach" best embodies my approach in this process: I see our interaction as a partnership, and as an opportunity for me to guide you as you work to achieve your professional goals.
Overview of Services
Below, you will find a list of available services. For each category of service, I offer two levels of engagement -- consultation and full-service engagement.
Consultation is the most cost-effective option. We get together over coffee or on the phone, discuss the area you'd like to focus on, and you have the opportunity to ask questions. At the end of consultation, it is your responsibility to take the information we've discussed and apply it.
Full-service engagement includes consultation, as well as all of the follow-up writing and editing work, such as drafting a new version of your resume, or writing content for your website. This option provides the most value for your time, and leaves you with polished, publish-ready materials.
- Casual, conversational process
- Follow-up work is your responsibility
- Greatest value
- Consultation included
- Lower time investment on your part
- All materials completed on your behalf
Pricing for all services is simple: you are only billed for time spent on your behalf. Hourly rates vary depending on which type of service you select. Services are completely customizable, and I offer a deep discount for anyone who is currently moving from a position of unemployment.
I offer this service because I love the opportunity to serve people. If you're concerned about the potential cost, contact me and we can explore a solution that best meets your needs and budget.

Resumes and Cover Letters
5 to 7 seconds.
That's the average amount of time that recruiters spend looking at your resume.
Your true first interview--and the first chance to tell your story--begins with your application materials: your resume, cover letter, reference list, and any other requested written materials. Weak language, buried or vague experience descriptions, and overlooked grammatical errors can quickly disqualify you for an incredible opportunity before you even step foot in the workspace.
As a former recruitment professional, I know exactly what your interviewers are looking for, and am well-equipped to prepare a polished application tailored to your specific career goals.
Social Media and General Web Presence
89% of recruiters have hired someone through LinkedIn.
Did you know that recruiters are checking your social media profiles long before you even consider applying for a job? Your web presence should tell your professional story in a way that inspires interest in your candidacy.
My social media and web services will leave you with a strong, cohesive web presence that will highlight your professional achievements and thus attract recruiters, increasing the likelihood that you will be considered for new opportunities.
When paired with a resume writing service, I can execute a complete overhaul of your LinkedIn profile in 30 minutes or less. Contact me to get started.
Most interviewers know in the first 90 seconds whether or not they are going to hire you.
All of your meticulous application preparation equates to nothing but disappointment if your professional story isn't communicated clear in the interview stage.
The best way to identify and correct your interview performance? Practice.
I offer in-person, phone, and video mock interviews, including comprehensive, constructive feedback reports.
Don't let one cringe-worthy answer or a minor non-verbal habit ruin your chances of landing your dream job! Contact me today.
