So why do some people use a specialist career coach?  Why don’t they just go it alone, get help from friends and family, or follow a career advice book?

Well, with a career coach alongside, it’s much easier and faster to find your true direction, produce the right strategy and tools, and compete with success in the marketplace.  With a coach, it’s motivating and it’s effective.

As your career coach, my job is to help you achieve the job and career success you hope for, ‘on purpose, rather than by chance’.

Advice and guidance is available on all aspects of your job search; exploring career direction, choosing a CV template, deciding on job search methods, handling interview questions, and more.
