We Cater to YOU
Positioning you as the true career expert you are
Welcome! My name is Maria Hebda, founder of The Career Experts (TCE)—the home for certified career coaches and resume writers. TCE was born out of my commitment to support a highly selective group of credentialed career service professionals.
We cater to coaches and writers who want to share their industry expertise, build relationships with potential clients, increase their visibility, and strategically grow their business. If this describes you, please join us!
Our platform is strategically designed to market and promote career coaches and resume writers. We provide the tools, resources, and support to increase their visibility and provide unlimited opportunities to connect with the thousands of job seekers visiting our site each month.
It’s all about building relationships. Connecting and engaging with your target audience, readers, and followers is how you begin to establish and build long-term relationships.
Job seekers want and need to know they’re more than just a sale to you. People buy from people they know, like, and trust.
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” ― Theodore Roosevelt
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. I’ve learned a great deal in my journey of entrepreneurship (and continue to learn) and I share my experiences.
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 to attract ideal clients (not tire kickers!) and turning them into paying clients.
As a VIP client, we’ll work together one-to-one to determine what’s working and what’s not, establish realistic business goals, and create a step-by-step plan and process to start turning your business around.
I’m committed to 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 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.
