My hourly rate for individual coaching is $250, invoiced in partial-hour increments. There is no commitment to a certain number of hours or a package of services; I simply work with you to give the guidance you need, and you are welcome to establish a budget. Some 20% of my clients are paid for by others, most often parents or caring friends - ask them for a birthday or graduation present that will be an investment in your future!

Payment is made using any credit card, PayPal, checks, online bank payments, or cash. Career coaching services in many cases are tax-deductible; check with your accountant. In my work with clients I share many materials I have already developed and for which there is no additional charge, such as career assessments, personal narrative worksheet, informational meetings guide, LinkedIn checklist, sample cover letters, job interview prep docs, etc. I meet with Puget Sound-based clients in my home-office in the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle (easy bus access and plentiful street parking). My work with clients is 100% confidential and I work with adult clients of all ages and in all fields.

More than half of my clients are from outside Puget Sound; Zoom, Skype, phone, and email work well. For local clients or out-of-town clients who can travel, I highly recommend starting your process by taking my Tools for Transition workshop, which is offered once a month (except August) at various Puget Sound locations including Wallingford, Capitol Hill, and Mercer Island. Tools for Transition is $98 for seven hours of detailed guidance on the entire transition process (see Workshops page for details) and includes a career assessment and a packet of handouts to walk you through each step. It's designed to allow most job-seekers to complete the process successfully on their own, including referrals to innumerable free resources.

Tools for Transition participants who seek individual coaching afterwards focus it on one or more of these:

  1. Direction, strategy, target occupation/field; “what, exactly, should I be doing??”
  2. Honing marketing communications materials such as resume, cover letter, LinkedIn summary
  3. Developing and maintaining professional relationships - networking and informational meetings
  4. Preparing for phone screens and job interviews

The job market has changed dramatically in the last ten years and the old ways of landing jobs are not enough anymore. Your relentless focus must be on developing relationships that allow you to use the drawstring strategy to get into interview pools, deepening your digital footprint in your target field/occupation, and demonstrating differentiated value to prospective employers. Best of luck to you, and please reach out if you'd like to register for Tools for Transition or begin with individual coaching.
