Job Search Coaching
Whether you call it a job search coach or job coach, in case you haven’t noticed, job hunting is not a game that is set up to benefit you. You already know that you won’t get impartial advice from corporate recruiters and, of course, any advice you receive from agency recruiters is tainted because they are being paid by corporations to get you to go to work for their clients. How impartial would you be if you were not going to paid unless you sold someone on taking a job you represented and that person represented fees of between $20,000 and $100,000 or more? I suspect you wouldn’t be particularly impartial and neither are they.
Friends? Family? Former managers?
Often they know little more than you do about job hunting even if they have hired a lot of people for themselves. That’s because they know what they want and how to evaluate for it but don’t know how other people do it. Having worked with people from a manager level and above for what seems like 100 years, senior professionals are often terrible job hunters!

Jeff, in particular, has an extraordinary amount of experience. Many of you have heard about the 10,000 hour rule that Malcolm Gladwell popularized in the book, “Outliers.” Gladwell wrote that it takes 10,000 of focused effort to master a skill. In “Outliers,” he points to The Beatles and Bill Gates as examples of how 10,000 hours of focused experience results in expert status. Job search coaching can be a difference maker for you.
