TESTIMONIALS

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

ABOUT MEREDITH TSEU

For me, deadline days were the toughest. I was working as a weekly newspaper editor and I dreaded starting my day at 10 a.m. and finishing 12 hours later. I started to feel sick that day, and I suspected I had carpal tunnel. I could see burnout down the road, and what scared me the most was that I could see a future in which I had no energy to job hunt or change careers. I felt trapped. But I got help from a career coach. Now, I like Tuesdays again.

What day is your worst? Is it Mondays, with an endless meeting to kick off the week? Is it actually Friday, when you are trying to get out the door to get home for dinner with your family and people keep hitting you with last minute requests? Or does your job feel like an undertow, carrying you further from shore, further from where you thought your career would carry you, even though on paper you feel like you are right where you should be.

The worst critiques most of my clients share about themselves often come from themselves. Why bother doing a resume when they have no accomplishments? ( but after talking a bit, we discover that they have them. Of course they do!)

We crack the whip on ourselves more often than any bad boss. We deserve no down time if we're job hunting. We should check emails at night and on weekends. We must always be on, always busy. We must always be accomplishing, proving our worth. And do we pause and give ourselves credit for a job well-done? Usually not.

How to deal? Mindfulness is one answer here. Start catching yourself in the act of being nasty to yourself, or having unrealistic expectations. On a more practical note, start a folder of thank-you emails or compliments from others. Document your wins, and pause for self-care.

That's it for the countdown. Thanks for playing along!

They explode, they stomp. Maybe even throw things. They make people cry with their mean-spirited critiques. Or maybe they have a look. You know the one.

How to deal? No sudden moves... JK. If you're a victim of verbal abuse, you're a victim of abuse. Document it. Consider a visit to HR or an attorney. The important thing is to consult others and get help. #badboss #officelife

It’s a classic for a reason. This is, by far, one of the biggest complaint I hear about bosses. It’s a lack of trust a lack of communication, or it has nothing to do with you whatsoever.
How to deal? There's a lot of advice on this one but my favorite is the priority check. Sure, send them proactive updates, but also, send an email Monday morning confirming your priorities for the week. #badboss #officelife

You worked hard on that project. You stayed late, got creative, poured your soul into it. And…. Your boss just took credit for it. Bonus evil points if you’re in the meeting when he/she does it.
How to deal? Next time you have a great idea, share it publicly first. Get witnesses. This can be especially tough for introverts or people early in their careers, but it can be worth it.
