Ever wonder how some people have the knack for landing almost any job they want 

while others struggle and stumble through the entire process from resume to interviews to negotiating their offer??!

The problem is that most people go about their job search the WRONG way!

Now this is how most people look for a job...can you relate?!

  • Come to the realization it's time to look for a job - which could be for a number of solid reasons like a recent graduation, moving to a new city, an unbearable boss, more money…or, let's see, a PANDEMIC?! Who would have thought??? 
  • Start incessantly searching for jobs on 15 different job boards - and set up a gazillion notifications for new openings
  • Tell 3 people you are looking for a job…oh and they are all the wrong people who can't help you
  • Look for your old resume in some folder (or create your first one?!)…and painfully and half-heartedly update this outdated and generic looking resume
  • Start writing that dreadful cover letter…but give up half way. It's optional, isn't it?! At least that's what you tell yourself
  • But wait, you remember you've got to update that LinkedIn profile as well! You have time...you'll do it tomorrow...maybe
  • And then you click "apply, apply, apply" to every possible job you remotely qualify for...
  • And then you wait.........and wait.........and wait some more
  • Lucky for you, this waiting turns out to be a good thing because you realize you skipped over one super important step...PREPPING for those interviews!
  • But before you even get started you tell yourself that "you've got this"! No prep needed. You want to come across "natural", don't you? Yup!
  • And then...YOU GET THE CALL!
  • You guessed what happens next - PANIC!
  • Then some more panic!!!
  • You search every possible blog written on the most important questions asked in an interview
  • You come up with a half coherent answer to "tell me about yourself"
  • Eat a tub of ice cream
  • Take a nap
  • Wake up and come to the conclusion that you were right all along - prepping is for losers
  • Do the phone interview ---> completely blow it ---> tell yourself it wasn't an ideal "fit" anyway

Alright, alright…I'll stop :)

So what's the point I'm trying to make here, you ask?

The point is that there is a wrong way of going through the job search process and there is a much better and more efficient way of doing this...one which has a significantly greater probability of success. 

But one thing IS for sure.

Looking for a job is NOT fun...and it is emotionally and even physically draining.

It's time-consuming, nerve-wracking, and a deflating process to say the least - ESPECIALLY if you are not prepared to take it on.

Spending hours upon hours searching through online job postings, trying to network with people, prepping for grueling interviews – none of it is fun. 

And, while there are countless blogs and articles and entire books written on the topic, none of them fit the bill like they should.

The blogs and articles do an okay job of providing tips on a particular topic but they don’t connect the dots and prepare you for the entire process of landing a great job.

Books, on the other hand, go into far more detail than necessary and tend to lose the reader with unnecessary and mindnumbing jargon that is promptly forgotten usually within minutes of reading them.

And unless you are willing to fork out thousands of dollars for a career coach to help you through the agonizing process (and that's if you do end up finding the right coach), the process is riddled with emotional ups and downs that can be very stressful for most people. 

As someone who has been through multiple job searches, changed industries, roles and job functions (roles and responsibilities), crossed borders to venture into new geographic and organizational cultures, I can attest that the "pain" is all too real. 

In addition to my personal job search experiences, by coaching thousands of career explorers, switchers, enhancers and entrepreneurs as a certified career and executive coach, I can confidently say that I truly understand the motivations and challenges faced by both employers and employees when navigating the job cycle.

Over the years, I have advised over 2500 job seekers across a spectrum of industries and experience levels (new graduate, mid-career and onward to retirement) through some of the most pivotal moments of their lives.

I've had the opportunity and priviledge to help my clients pursue opportunities in a great variety of roles as well as organizations big and small over the past two decades - from retail to restaurants, consulting to construction firms, startups to fortune 500 technology, energy, CPG and healthcare companies.

Many of my clients call me their "Job Doc" as I bring deep expertise from holding a doctorate degree in career development and the cognitive decision-making process behind the job pursuit process.

And I'm proud to share with you a small sampling of the companies that my clients have secured great jobs and careers at:

AND now I am excited to share the mindset, the tools, the tricks - all the invaluable job and career insights - packaged into a no-nonsense step-by-step program, called Job Search Blueprint. 

I've taken all the collective wisdom from coaching and advising over 2500 individuals (minus all the jargon and unnecessary "fluff") and created a simple, easy to follow 14-day plan of action that enables job seekers to persevere with success through the often exhaustive job search process, complete with 17 templates and worksheets to make your job search SIGNIFICANTLY easier!

In this "guide" I walk you, step by step, through everything you will need (and perhaps, more importantly, nothing you won’t need) to land the job of your dreams.

So, what is this Job Search Blueprint all about??!!
