As a young professional, you’re navigating a completely new world. You’ve probably learned how to write your resume and you may have successfully landed your first “real job,” but has anyone ever talked with you about …
- How to ask your boss for a raise or a new perk?
- How to deal with a particularly difficult co-worker?
- What to do if you get laid off or fired?
- What do you need to do before you quit your job?
- How to look for a new job without tipping off your current boss?
- What are the five pieces of career advice no one has told you yet?
I can help …
While I consider myself very successful, I’ve walked through several challenging moments in my career to get to this point.
- I lost my job two months before my wedding and spent my honeymoon worrying about when I would be able to leave unemployment
- Twice in my career I had to start from scratch and build the professional skillset to break into a new industry
- I’ve chosen to change employers on multiple occasions which required a stealth job search followed by some very difficult conversations
- I once had a manager scream at me, redfaced for twenty minutes because of my lack of commitment to the company … because I missed a day while in the emergency room
- I’ve been stabbed in the back, lied to and screwed over
