Job Search Coaching

Hi, I'm Donna Schilder, Master Certified Coach (MCC). Welcome to my Job Search Coaching webpage.

Looking for a job can be overwhelming. It’s a great deal of work to create a resume, submit resumes to job search websites like and, attend networking events, work your own network, prepare for interviews.

Then, there’s that new component: Social Media. How do you know what to put in your LinkedIn Profile, how to leverage it to network, how to look for a job on LinkedIn. And you’re wondering, do I need to use Facebook, Twitter, or any of these others sites.

When you work with me as your Job Search Coach, you still need to deal with all of these things, but I can help you do it more efficiently and effectively.

And, as your Job Search Coach, I will be there to support you in the ups and downs of the process.

I support job seekers in Long Beach, California, Orange County, Southern California, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Irvine, and job seekers throughout the United States.

What People are Saying About Donna

Job Search Coaching

Coaching helped me grapple with a very complex set of issues and life events and gave me the direction and guidance to start taking action, one step at a time. It gave me the means and the courage to not only get unstuck but then to keep going as I unraveled and learned and tried to figure out what was next. I have become more clear about my desired Career and life path and built confidence so that I am better able to sell myself. In addition, I gained a better understanding of how I learn and work, along with some tools to be more productive.
