What is career coaching/consulting?
My process offers a combination of coaching and consulting. I work with my clients to provide the support and assistance necessary for making positive changes and to achieve desired goals. As a consultant I offer specific resources and advice, combined with exercises and tools, to assist with and to clarify career direction. As a coach I work together with clients to identify motivations, skills, knowledge and abilities needed to pursue their passion and to take specific steps to achieve meaningful results.
How long does this process take?
The time frame can vary and depends on a wide range of factors: your goal(s), your commitment and openness to utilize new resources, your circumstances, how quickly and thoughtfully homework assignments are completed, and other unique factors.
Some individuals meet for a very brief engagement (i.e. how to prepare for an interview), while others come in focused on multiple goals and/or career assessments.
How much does career consulting cost?
Visit my Career Packages link for more information. All major credit cards accepted.
Do you do coaching in person or over the phone?
Both. I meet with clients over the phone, via Skype, or in person at three Metro Atlanta locations.
What about confidentiality?
What happens in my sessions stays in my sessions, including assessment results.
Do you consult with individuals with special career needs?
Yes, including veterans transitioning back to civilian jobs, those re-entering the workforce after an extended leave and individuals with disabilities or unusual circumstances.
"In the summer of 2016, I reached out to Debra in order to improve my resume. She provided valuable insight into how I could improve my personal brand and network through LinkedIn. Additionally, she helped me reorganize my resume and improve the formatting.
I am proud to say that through her assistance I received several excellent opportunities from various recruiters in the aerospace industry. Within a few months I found the perfect fit for the next step in my career.
Debra's services were invaluable and integral to my career progression. I highly recommend her to fellow GT alumni wishing to take the next step in polishing their professional brand.
