Do You Feel Stuck?
Are you unhappy with your job, but not sure what to do about it? Is your job hunt stalled, and you don’t know what you’re doing wrong? Do you start to get a stomach ache Sunday night just thinking of the next morning? I specialize in helping you like Mondays again.
Career Coaching Can Help
I work with clients who are midway through their careers or taking a break from work to care for family members or children. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed and disconnected from work, I can help.
Together we can explore your values, interests, personality and skills to help you clarity what you want at this point in life. While I have a time-tested process I rely on, I never work exactly the same way with each client. Everyone’s situation is unique, and so our work together will be tailored to your situation.
I also love supporting job hunters who hate promoting themselves: introverts who dread networking, techies who don’t know where to start with a cover letter, people who haven’t interviewed for a while and want to polish their skills. I help clients job hunt in a way that honors who they are. You really can job hunt with dignity.
I know you have a lot of choices when it comes to career services. That’s why I take care to keep my skills up-to-date.
I have a master’s degree in counseling from The George Washington University. I am also a recognized as a Master Career Counselor with the National Career Development Association. I completed training this spring 2017 as a Global Career Development Facilitator with the NCDA. I’ve worked as a recruiter and a university career counselor, both for undergraduate and business school students.
I’ve also gone through a career change of my own. I know what it’s like to need a change, but have no earthly idea how to do it. It’s such a tough place to be, but I see so many clients feel relieved after a few sessions, even if they’re not in their new job or career yet, because they realize they can make a change, and so can you.
Here’s what some past clients have to say:
“Meredith was an amazing resource and someone I’ve already recommended to many friends and co-workers. She really listened to me, asked me thought-provoking questions, and quickly got me to focus on the heart of the issues. After having talked to family, friends and co-workers already, I still needed some help clarifying my goals, values, ambitions and needs. She helped me immediately make my work life better (in my current job) through understanding how to increase my energy and sense of fulfillment, while also helping me clarify what I wanted my next challenge to look like. Meredith was easy to talk to, even over the phone from across the country, and provided interesting articles, resources and exercises between appointments. I looked forward to my time talking with her and will definitely lean on her again as I progress in my career.”
-Cal Bouchard, VP of Digital Commerce
“I really liked working with Meredith. The relaxed atmosphere of her office put me at ease. We exchanged a few emails, phone calls, and had a great in-person meeting. Her knowledge and expertise helped me feel confident and motivated to pursue a job. After our meeting, I jumped right into researching what to do next. Meredith empowered me to go after a job!”
-Amy, job hunter, now back to work after a hiatus
“Meredith is fantastic! When I decided to return to my career after five-years of staying at home, a lot had changed in terms of what I was seeking and how the job market moved. Meredith provided up-to-date resources, valuable guidance, and creative ideas that helped me find my direction and navigate the job search process. In addition, throughout the process she provide the support and encouragement I needed to “think outside the box”. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to re-enter or advance their careers.
-Heidi, legal counsel.
