Upcoming Interest Sessions


“There will never be a right time. Stop waiting and start doing”

– Mel Robbins


We offer two ways to receive career coaching: in person and/or over the phone. We understand the importance of building relationships, therefore we suggest the first coaching session is in person. It’s always your choice to decide how you want to meet for your coaching sessions. (Due to COVID-19 some coaching appointments are currently taking place over the phone) 

We understand that you may not be able to meet during normal business hours. Your coach will work with you to find a time that is mutually convenient for both of you so you can reap the full benefits of our program. 

We ask you to plan to meet with your career coach every two weeks for a 45 minute session.  If you need additional support between appointments, we are available to provide extra help. 

There are no fees associated with our program.  All of our time and tools are provided to you free of charge. 

Everyone’s career journey is different depending on their goals, the industry, any many additional factors. Generally, it can take anywhere from 3-6 months to find a new job.
