Inventive Career Transitions

Inventive career transitions require activities that differ from standard job searches for clearly defined roles. Below are just some of the ways Losing Your Job & Finding Yourself can help you navigate a transition that can be traumatic, turbulent, and triumphant.

If any of these describe you:

  • Not sure what you can and want to do next
  • Considering a career change
  • A “Hard-to-Define Professional” with diverse capabilities, but not a clear occupation
  • Struggling to define a unique value proposition you can “sell”
  • Having trouble networking because you aren’t clear about what you want to do and you don’t have an “elevator pitch” that works
  • Overwhelmed and confused about how to conduct a job search
  • Resumes and applications getting lost in the “black hole”
Nancy’s experience and methods guide you to:

  • Discover what you can and want to do next
  • Explore new career directions and pursue a wider variety of jobs
  • Identify and articulate transferable skills
  • Define your capabilities and unique value proposition
  • Reframe your experience and capabilities for new roles
  • Develop strong resumes more likely to land in the “Yes” pile for interviews
  • Easily tailor resumes and cover letters for specific jobs
  • Increase your success by combining a strong resume and LinkedIn profile, online job searches and alerts, and targeted networking “with purpose”

Nancy really understands words. She reconstructed my CV into a more readable and visually appealing format. What impressed me even more was her ability to understand what I wanted in a new position, and reframe my experience toward that end. Nancy ‘works her magic’ on your documents and she taught me how to mine online job boards to find  positions to pursue.

I worked with Nancy to update my resume and prepare for C-suite meetings in a Fortune 500 company. Nancy found a better way to tell the story of my career and positioned me to have conversations about the direction I wanted my career to go. Smart, organized, knowledgeable, and fast, Nancy brought a wealth of experience to help me achieve my goals. Equally important was her affable communication style and personality, which put me at ease and helped me think through the complexities of my career path. She did a fantastic job, and I recommend her most strongly to help you move your career forward!
