Why hire a career coach?

The past five years I've hired 100+ people. Through this, I've been able to discern why some people get hired while others don't. My goal is to help you to manage your mind while interviewing (it can be scary!) and create career goals and achieve them.

Introduction: DreamYOU coaching is dedicated to giving the tools and tactics you need to achieve impactful results.

DreamYOU life coaching: Learn how to sit with negative/ uncomfortable emotions and let them pass without the use of buffering (over eating, over exercising, over drinking, over Instagramming, etc). Learn tools to navigate uncertainty, rejection, and change. If you’re job searching, getting out of a relationship, experiencing stress, or experiencing change of any kind then this coaching is for you. This is also for you if you're looking to develop new, healthy habits that you can keep for a lifetime. 

DreamYOU career coaching: Talk through short-term and long-term career goals. Discuss both entrepreneurial and corporate opportunities. Revise LinkedIn profile and resume. Discuss if it makes sense to have a cover letter. Create a “Dream Team 25” in Excel with dream company connections concretely listed out. Implement a simplified way to track progress weekly. Conduct interview role plays to make sure you’re ready to excel in your next interview. 

DreamYOU negotiation coaching: Learn the tools and tactics used in books like “Getting to Yes,” “Never Split the Difference,” and “Getting More.” This will give you the tools to 10X your income. We’ll do role reversals, talk about the use of standards, emotional payments, incremental asks, and use of exceptions.

Why should you hire me?

I recently completed Clinical Neuropsychology Predoctoral Coursework from Roosevelt University. In addition, the past five years, I’ve worked as a staffing then in-house recruiter and have interviewed and placed 100+ candidates. Also, I’ve conducted interview preparation for 20+ candidates to interview for roles at places like VML, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Google. At Experis, I was consistently ranked in the top 15% of the 400 Experis Recruiters nationwide. I’d love to transform you into YOUR BEST! I will listen, coach, and guide you into your desired potential.
