Home of True Career Experts

Welcome! My name is Maria Hebda, founder of The Career Experts aka TCE—the home for career coaches and resume writers. TCE was born out of my commitment to support a highly selective group of credentialed career service professionals.

We support certified coaches and writers who want to share their industry expertise, build relationships with potential clients while at the same time increase their visibility and strategically grow their business. If you fit this description, please join us!

We provide you with the support, tools, and resources to get in front of your potential ideal clients. Our platform is designed to reach your target market and build your brand as a top-tier career expert providing quality career coaching or resume writing services (for some of you, it’s both).

Expect unlimited opportunities to connect with thousands of job seekers visiting our site each month. Opportunities to personally connect, engage, and cultivate long-term relationships with your target audience, readers, and followers.

My background…

I first became certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC) program in 1997 and received my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) certification. In 2002, I earned my Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC) certification through the The Academies program.

Being in business for 20+ years, I’ve learned a great deal in my journey of entrepreneurship. I continue to learn and grow and share my experiences and expertise to support my colleagues (certified and non-certified) any way I can along their journey.

My experience over the years has primed me to build a community of  high-level career service professionals and guiding them toward operating rewarding, profitable, and well-balanced businesses.

VIP Private Coaching

I work exclusively with career coaches and resume writers who struggle  and need direction on what steps to take next to move their business forward.

As a VIP private coaching client, we work together one-to-one to determine what’s working and what’s not, establish realistic business goals, and create step-by-step plans to start turning your business around. Testimonials

I’m well aware of the challenges career service businesses face—been there, done that…

  • Wanting to adapt to life as a solo-preneur and doing your best to balance work and family time
  • Wanting to possess the confidence to charge what you know you’re worth
  • Wanting to be effective in marketing your business
  • Wanting to attract ideal clients; ones you enjoy working with, not tire-kickers
  • Wanting to build genuine relationships with potential clients
  • Wanting to avoid falling into the rut of settling or taking on any client project just to generate some kind of income

Questions? Schedule a time to talk and I’ll answer them personally.

I’m committed to YOU.

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 private career service business after consecutively running that business and TCE for nearly 18 years so I could focus 100% of my time and efforts to TCE, which I enjoy very much!.

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.

That’s why I created The Career Experts.
