How have you been?  Are you still struggling with your job search?  Are you overwhelmed about where to start?  What about the information that is out there?  Let me help you organize your thoughts, simplify your search and plan your strategy by giving you some tools.  Every week, starting in January, I will show you 12 easy ways to help you with your brand, networking and negotiations.  These will not only help you in your job search but will also give you tools for your career development going forward.

What have I been up to?  I’ve been working with an outplacement company as a Virtual Transition Coach.   I help people that have been laid-off find their next job, their next career, or start their own business.  My ten years in staffing got me excited about working as a Transition Coach.  It encompasses what I enjoy the most about my profession as a recruiter, which is to help people develop their brand, and their interview and negotiation skills.  As of November 2018, I have coached 213 clients and I am currently working with 59 active clients.


Did you know that I also created my own practice?  Yeah!  I offer one-on-one coaching, group sessions, and workshops under my own brand:  Power Play Career Coaching.  I am both a certified Career Strategist and Employment Strategist through Career Professionals of Canada, of which I am a member, and in January I will be certified as a “Passion Test” Facilitator.


Have you noticed how often people change jobs, even careers? And, it takes longer to land a job even though the vacancy rate is at a record high.  Why is that?  According to some experts, the country is experiencing a skills mismatch — the jobs available don’t match the skills (or the interests) of the available work force.  This is where I come in; I help people gain clarity about their qualifications, their passions and their experience, and together we scan the labour market for opportunities.


I like to keep it simple and have fun in the process.  Following my 12-week program will bring your job, career or business search to a whole new level.  Sometimes people just need a little nudge in the right direction equipped with the right tools.
