Career Planning and Development can help you make smarter moves and save more money in the long run.
Let's get strategic!
I work regularly with people in career transition -- especially the military and those contemplating pre-retirement work options -- and I can help you.
For over a decade, I've been helping my clients find a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment in their career and life. I work closely with you to discover your personal goals and values and to design a workable career blueprint for achieving greater feelings of success and happiness in your work.
As a 20-year Certified Myers-Briggs Type Indicator administrator/evaluator, I work with you to find the jobs best suited to your specific talents, personal style and natural way of doing things. This helps to guarantee a more satisfying work life simply because you're not constantly working against the grain and trying to fit a mold that isn't a comfortable match for you. This is one of the best parts of what I do, acting as tour guide to my clients on their journey of self-discovery which almost always puts a new light in their eyes and a bigger smile on their face.
Military to Civilian Transition
As a Canadian Forces' Second Career Assistance Network (SCAN) Coordinator for over 8 years -- and the first civilian to hold the position -- I can contribute a unique, in-depth knowledge of the military to civilian transition process. Along with an extensive database of transferrable skillsets from numerous military occupations (MOC's), I can combine my knowledge of the military, with my experience as a civilian recruiter and HR professional, to create marketing tools that showcase military skills in a civilian-friendly way and attract employers you want to meet -- civilian, government, contractors and more...
What if I want a complete Career Change?
These days many people of all ages are craving more interesting, satisfying, creative or better paying career paths. Each person has their own reason for such a move. I'll work with you to pinpoint those core motivations and help you design a plan to make it happen.
There are over 25,000 jobs listed on the National Occupational Classification web site. For the uninitiated it can be overwhelming to try and make sense of all jobs out there. And even harder to figure out how to get yourself into one of those jobs. Many would-be career changers give up when they encounter this challenge. Let me be your tour guide to the world of jobs and work. I will help you find a way to start moving towards a career that will (hopefully) combine itself with your old skill sets while you start to add new ones to the mix.

Why Resume Coach?
Very few Career Coaches and Resume Writers will spend the time with you that I do, which is why my service is so unique -- and successful!
True, you may spend a bit more time and money with me at the outset, but the quality-centric and personalized approach I take in helping you meet your career objectives will assist you in moving further and faster while giving you the tools you need to continue propelling yourself forward, independently.
In other words: You'll be able to take the reins of your own career and keep yourself on track for future career moves/advancement.
Because most career practitioners don't give you the tools necessary to adjust and upgrade your own resumes/cover letters so you have more flexibility and choices for getting where you want to go.
