This website was built specifically for you!

What am I talking about?  I’m talking about helping you get out of the ditch with your career.  Unless I’m wrong, you’re here because you’re not quite sure what to do next.  You’ve most likely tried a lot of things, many of which sounded like the silver bullet at the time.  But, you’re still here, aren’t you?  You’re still looking for a job, for a career change, for additional income, for something.  You may not even know what you are looking for any more!

The job market has changed so drastically during our generation.  If you graduated from college back in the late 70s like I did, you probably sought out a company with the idea that you would spend a good portion of your career there.  If it wasn’t a perfect fit, you were comfortable with the idea of making a couple of changes till you got it right, then you’d be set.

Then we went through outsourcing, downsizing, rightsizing, offshoring, NAFTA, and a few recessions (or, excuse me, economic downturns),  and now… what would a “good” career look like, anyway?

Now, it seems like a successful career is just staying employed and moving through anything that seems like a positive progression of positions without any significant gaps in your employment that you can’t adequately explain and that don’t rob you of your retirement savings or cause you to move in with the in-laws!  Am I wrong?

So, you find yourself in this situation where you’re either seriously unhappy or stuck or, worse yet, you’ve been laid off, downsized, outplaced, pushed aside, demoted, found redundant, or just plain fired.

No problem.  You’ll just get another job, right?  Post your job on Monster, call a few headhunters, tell a few buddies you’re ready for a change, and voila!  New job, right?

No?  What’s wrong?  Oh, there are millions of other people just like you in the market doing the same thing!  Oh… well, how are you going to make sure you are the one to get a job if one comes along that looks like it should be yours?  Are you going to jump up and down and say, “Pick me!  Pick me!”??

Well, that’s what this website is all about.  It’s about different techniques – what works and what doesn’t – in the job market.  It’s about social media; it’s about resume boards; it’s about networking; it’s about interviewing; it’s about negotiating compensation;  it’s about whatever you need it to be about.  Seriously.

I’ve been helping candidates in the job market since before the dot.com era.  I’ve found myself in the job market a few times over the past 20 years.  I’m going to share what I know makes a difference; I’m going to answer your questions; and we’re going to explore some new stuff together.  Because, hey… surprise, the world continues to change out there, and what worked last time you were looking for a job won’t work as well this time, and it may not even exist anymore!  Yesterday’s great idea is today’s lame duck.

If you’d like to get on my mailing list to receive my help, or if you’d like the opportunity to send in a question about something you either don’t understand or that is bugging you, join the Career Progression Team by entering your name and email address, and let’s get going.  And don’t worry, your info will be closely guarded and will not be sold or shared with anyone else.

I’ll see you on the other side!
