Career & Job Search Coaching
Chris’ skill in Career Coaching began to grow when she felt compelled to support her peers in the career transitions they were inevitably forced to make in response to the ever-changing manpower and skill set needs of the corporations where she worked.
In addition, Chris started using Donna Schilder’s Career Exploration and Job Search Coaching processes starting in 2015 and she applies these tools to support clients in finding meaningful work that aligns with their desired lifestyle.
Chris is also passionate about helping her clients create a strong personal brand that highlights their unique value to employers (as communicated in their Resumes, LinkedIn Profiles, Executive Bios, Elevator Speeches, networking conversations, and presentations to their customers, vendors, upper management, peers and teams).

In her work with Leadership clients, Chris helps them unlock their potential to create effective business strategies, manage change, solve problems, and achieve their desired results for themselves, their teams, and their companies.

Using Skype, Chris taught me how to show confidence while interviewed by using my body language successfully. Shortly after, I got a job!
