You bring great value to the table.
I’m dedicated to positioning you as the true career expert you are.
You know when you try to get clients who appreciate the work you do and value the expertise you have to offer as a career coach or resume writer but seem to attract more bargain shoppers vs. ideal clients? That’s the challenge I help my colleagues overcome.
Hello and welcome! My name is Maria Hebda and I’m a coach and business consultant works with career service professionals who struggle to attract their ideal clients to build their businesses. The end result is positioning themselves as the career experts they are, attracting more qualified client leads while building relationships—turning potential clients into paying clients.
What sets me apart from other coaches and business consultants is that I only work with career coaches and resume writers. And, the emphasis of my work is creating and implementing authentic marketing strategies to help my colleagues attract clients who truly value their work and are willing to invest working with them.
The Career Experts was born out of my own commitment to bolstering a highly selective group of certified career professionals, providing rich resources for them and our audience of job seekers.
TCE connects the two groups with an ultimate goal of creating successful business relationships. Our platform is strategically designed to help coaches and writers attract and connect with potential clients. Private coaching is also available for coaches and writers who seek one-to-one support and direction.
My background… I first became certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC) program in 1997 and obtained my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) certification. In 2002, I received my Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC) certification through the The Academies program. Over the years, I’ve learned a great deal and share my firsthand experience with my colleagues, which is described further down.
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.
I’ve made a commitment to serve my colleagues.
I’ve made a commitment to dedicate my professional life to serve as a supporter, resource, and marketing consultant and coach to help my colleagues avoid making the same mistakes I did running my own career service business. In December 2015, I retired from my personal career service business, allowing me to give 100% of my time to be of service and support to my colleagues.
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 and elite network.
