Maria E. Hebda, CCMC
Career Expert Business Coach & Mentor


My name is Maria Hebda, founder of The Career Experts (TCE)—home of career industry experts. TCE was born out of my commitment to support a highly selective group of career coaching and resume writing experts.

We provide career coaches and resume writers with support, tools, and resources to reach your target audience and build your brand as a top-tier career expert. You have unlimited opportunities to position yourself in front of thousands of job seekers visiting our site each month.

Join us to strategically share your expertise, build relationships with potential clients, and position yourself as an industry expert who understands the value of client relationships and dedicated to the success of their clients.

My background…

In 1997, I became certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC) program, earning my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) credential. In 2002, through The Academies coaching program, I became a Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC).

Being in business 20+ years, I’ve learned a great deal in my journey of entrepreneurship. I’m a lifelong learner and as I learn and grow, I share my experiences and expertise to support my fellow coaches and writers any way I can along their journey.

I lead by example. I understand the downfalls of procrastinating, making excuses, and falling into rabbit holes because I’ve fell victim to it many times and have discovered ways to overcome these challenges.

VIP Private Coaching

I help women in the career services industry let go of limited beliefs, fears, and overwhelm that keeps them stuck and frustrated in their business so they can enjoy the financial freedom and work/life balance they’ve strived for all along.

As a private coaching client (career coach or resume writer), we do inner work and business strategy to create momentum, which is key to a successful and profitable business. After our work together, you’ll gain more…

  • Clarity | You get rid of the noise and become very clear about what you want to achieve in your business.
  • Self-Confidence | You’re more open to change and willing to step out of your comfort zone.
  • Momentum | Your motivation, energy, and persistence to take IMPERFECT action increases, keeping things simple and creating momentum.

I understand the downfalls of procrastinating, making excuses, falling into rabbit holes and the whole comparison trap thing. I hear you. The mindset shift is transformational!

I’m well aware of the challenges coaches & writers face

  • Trying to adapt to life as a solo-preneur but not great at work/life balance.
  • Spending thousands of dollars on DYI programs only to start them and eventually end up on your bookshelf only to collect dust.
  • Not knowing what to do next because too much is going on so you’re left feeling overwhelmed and stuck.
  • Allowing fear and lack of confidence hold you back from trying new ways to grow your business.
  • Undercharging your services because you don’t want to scare away potential clients.

I hear you.

I want to help.

I’ve made a commitment to dedicate my professional life to serve as a supporter, resource, and business coach and mentor to help coaches and writers 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!.

Having been in the industry as long as I have and knowing where I could really be of service, creating a comprehensive resource and elite network like The Career Experts to represent top-notch career service professionals and connecting them with their target audience has been a blessing!
