Optimism for job seekers

Author: Lori Howard

I’m cautiously optimistic.  Actually, I’ve been harboring optimism about the job market for some time now – especially for those willing to do the work required to get hired.  Only now I have concrete data to back me up!  Check out this job market update in today’s WSJ!

More reason to be perhaps a bit more than cautiously optimistic, and go for full-blown optimism!

Client Stories

When I first met Lori, I was in a rut. Having spent 25 years in the same industry, I was bored, max’d out and didn't know what to do next.  I was pigeon-holed into an industry that I was not so fond of, and saw no way to get out.  I felt trapped. Lori understood my predicament, as she had seen it all before -- she was sympathetic, but resolute in knowing that she could help me find answers.  I took great solace in that! 

Through several sessions and dozens of exercises, I began to get a clearer picture of who I am, and where my strengths and talents truly lie.  Working with Lori, I was able to translate that understanding into updated, targeted resumes that quickly produced interviews and gave me the confidence to express myself better than ever before. 

Consulting a Career Coach should be mandatory for anyone in today's work force, and Lori is the best at her profession.
