  • Clarifying your personal “brand” that you uniquely offer to a prospective employer
  • Refining and improving your resume, CV, statement of purpose or cover letter
  • Networking in your field and identifying professional development opportunities
  • Getting you ready for your upcoming interview
  • Building your online presence with LinkedIn or online portfolios
  • Assisting you in clarifying your career path and job search
  • Any questions you may have!

Ok that’s useful – How can I make an appointment to meet with a Career Coach?
