One-on-One Coaching

Career Development and Personal Growth

Are you ready to embrace that everything’s not OK and that’s OK? You’ll be amazed by how empowering it is to explore your career and/or your personal life. I know you can create a sense of purpose and set priorities, because I went through the same thing. And together we’re going to make a plan! I work with my clients one-on-one to help with career discovery, professional development, personal growth, transitioning into the workplace, and more! People come to me because they:

  • Feel overwhelmed by the job search process
  • Worried about an upcoming interview
  • Nervous about negotiating a salary or looking for a raise in their current job
  • Have a few job offers on the table and unsure which one to choose
  • Started a new job and want to make a good impression
  • Feel stuck, bored, or exhausted in their current job and want to make a change
  • Feel lost, hopeless and not confident in their professional self
  • Struggle to find a project or interest area that excites them
  • And many other reasons.

Whatever the reason, I want to help!

Together, we’ll create a plan of action to give you a sense of purpose. This plan could include:

  • Establishing your personal and professional priorities
  • Creating your personal brand and updating your resume and cover letter
  • Learning crucial interviewing techniques that play off of your unique strengths
  • Gaining the confidence to ask for what you’re worth in a salary negotiation
  • Establishing what occupations and industries align with your interests
  • Learning essential skills to be successful through a job transition
  • Setting clear, attainable and realistic goals that can be accomplished through your strengths

Alissa was an asset in brainstorming how to use both the strengths and my yet-to-be-developed characteristics in my daily life.

She set me up well to enter into interviews confidently and prepared.
