Personal Branding & Job Search Coach

Personal Branding & Job Search Coach



"It was the resume you wrote that got me the interview that led to my new job. My new boss told me my resume was picked by a group of three managers from more than 300 applicants. Once picked, I made it to the interview process. This says a lot about the way you wrote my resume. Thank you."

Jeff S., Safety and Quality Manager

"Karen did a great job giving my resume a much needed overhaul. She learned my specific needs and creatively brought out my strengths to feature them in the best possible light. She not only worked for me, but also WITH me, offering good suggestions and encouraging my input as well.


I was lucky enough to procure a new job within less than a month. I have no doubt Karen's resume revamp played a significant part. Karen stays in constant contact until the job is done to her client's absolute satisfaction, She gives smart attention to detail and truly focuses on clients as individuals. She gets the job done in a timely manner without sacrificing quality. I would/will work with her again. Highly recommended."

Dave R., Case Manager

"Karen did a fantastic job improving and revising my resume and LinkedIn profile. She was very collaborative throughout the process, extremely responsive, and cost-effective (i.e. great value for the investment). I would strongly recommend anyone to work with Karen for either slight "tweaks" or major improvements. She provided a great external view, comments and considerations; as well as fantastic wordsmithing."

David Y., Strategic Growth/Business Development Executive

"Karen has demonstrated the most positive can-do attitude I have had the pleasure to witness in my 30-year career. Not only is she passionate and proactive about career coaching, she is a delight to work with."

Melissa O., QA Program Manager

“Thank you for the time and effort you spent. Your recommendations for interviewing were on target. They also helped me get past the initial nervousness of interviewing.”

John M., instructional Systems Designer

"Karen's positive, can-do attitude and drive as a career coach is amazing! She is able to mount a vast array of resources to assist others in the transition to their next career phase. This dynamo makes thing happen, all with an attitude of humility and good-cheer."

What Others Say about Karen

"I know your coaching and the resume you created for me have been instrumental in getting me to this point [job]. I am so grateful to you, your expertise, your encouraging words so many times along the way. This is why you do what you do."

Kent S., Account Coordinator

"I used LinkedIn Profinder to identify a local job interview coach who I did not previously know. I wanted a fresh, independent first impression and assessment of my physical deportment, manner of speech and approach to getting and making the most of job interview opportunities. During and following a generous, one-hour face-to-face meeting, Karen suggested numerous and practical and situationally relevant takeaways that I was able to immediately deploy. Karen provided solid value that was worth more to me than the cost of the service provided. If you are planning on launching a job search or are actively seeking a new position, I recommend consulting with Karen on techniques and strategies that will help you achieve your objective."

Richard L., Financial Manager

"Karen was helpful at giving me actionable steps to take as we identified my career goals and objectives. Our sessions were done remotely and were always productive and valuable. I would recommend Karen to anyone wanting general career advice or even more directed help such as fine-tuning a resume, cover letter writing and creating succinct CAR stories for interview preparation. Karen genuinely invests the time it takes to position you right where you need to be to land your next executive career opportunity."

Kathy M., Marketing Manager

"My resume was out of date and I hadn't interviewed in 9 years. It was important for me to have a professional like Karen. She helped me update my resume and tailor cover letters, follow-up and thank you letters for various positions, using my words, but keeping it simple. They all looked great! She also prepped me on the latest interview questions and process. Her feedback was dead on."
