It only took a few short years to realize what the public DIDN’T know about the “careers” industry—that it actually existed.
I vowed to establish credibility as a resume writing and career coaching expert.
I first became certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC) program. After obtaining my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) certification in 1997, I became a career coaching expert and earned my Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC) certification through the The Academies program in 2002, adhering to credentialing requirements.
The Career Experts was born out of my own commitment to bolstering a highly selective group of the certified career professionals, providing rich resources for them and our audience of job seekers, and connecting the two groups with an ultimate goal of creating a successful relationship.
My many years of experience primed me to build a community of only the highest-level career professionals and to guide them toward operating thriving, well-balanced businesses.
Like many of my colleagues, I’ve experienced the months of feast or famine in my business, worrying that if I don’t get more certifications, I’ll be looked upon as falling behind as a career professional.
I’ve made a commitment to dedicate my professional life to serve as a supporter, resource, and business consultant and coach to help my colleagues avoid making the same mistakes I did running my own career service business.
For too long, I burned the midnight oil only to find myself slipping up on client work the next day and having to re-work projects. Meanwhile, the “shiny-object syndrome” led me to spend thousands of dollars on various programs while never finding the time to actually complete any of them because I was too busy trying to figure out “quick-fix” ways to attract more clients.
Having been in the industry as long as I have, seeing the topics being discussed by career groups, and knowing the struggles and challenges my colleagues face running a business out of their homes because they want be there for their families, I realized the need for a comprehensive resource network.
