Career Coaching & Job Transition Services

Joel has an in-depth appreciation of today’s job market realities, is a great listener, and has a well developed “BS-meter” i.e. he has a finely-tuned ability to force one to honestly observe strengths and weaknesses. Joel does all of this in a balanced, supportive manner. I think it would be hard to find a more capable, knowledgeable job/career coach.

Career coaching is a way to tap into your potential to achieve personal and professional satisfaction. Since you’re going to spend one-third of your life at work, wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy it? But too many people don’t enjoy their work, and feel trapped in a job they never should have had in the first place. Being in the wrong job can have a significant impact on your health. In fact, stress caused by dissatisfaction with your job can lead to obesity, depression, heart attack, high-blood pressure and stroke.

A career coach can help you avoid the devastating impact of an unsatisfactory career by helping you leverage your natural gifts and talents to obtain the career of your dreams. Just like athletes with exceptional skill and talent rely on the assistance of a coach to help them perform at peak levels, a career coach can help you refine your raw talent—enabling you to reach new levels of success at whatever career stage you’re in.

Whether you’ve been working for a number of years and still wonder, “What career is right for me?”; need help on career change; find yourself 10 years into a job you vowed was only temporary until you found something better; or are in a satisfying career, but want to advance to higher levels of success, my career coaching services are designed to give you the tools you need to realize your greatest potential.

I offer four coaching services that address people in different stages of their career. These services include:
