Finding the right career or job may be a challenge for you. Why is that? Any change is a risk, whether big or small. This applies to finding a new job following a layoff, changing careers in midlife, or just brushing up on your job search strategies (networking and interviewing, for example). As your Kansas City Career Coach, I’ll help you break down the process into logical steps that will lead you down the path to success.

Kansas City is a wonderful place to live and work. It offers many opportunities in many fields. Finding job satisfaction here can be easy, or not, depending upon your individual circumstances. If you find yourself challenged, please contact me for assistance. Together we will make it happen!
