I have had the PRIVILEGE of working with hundreds of clients from around the world spanning every function and industry imaginable including Emerging Technology, Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Consumer Products, Banking, and Entertainment.
In addition to corporate CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CIOs, Chief Growth Officers, VPs, and Directors, I have worked with Non-Profit Leaders, Public Officials, Entrepreneurs, Scientists, Doctors, Lawyers, Chefs, Professors, Creative Artists, Consultants, and more.
Corporate Recruiting Experience
Screening hundreds of resumes and interviewing up to six candidates in a day provided me with an inside look at the tools and strategies candidates can utilize to truly STAND OUT from the masses.
Recruiting ignited my quest to earn my M.Ed. and become a career counselor. As a career changer, I understand first-hand the courage and planning necessary for my clients to balance both the excitement and trepidation associated with leaving a successful career to pursue a new path.
Fortune 100 Business Background
Prior to becoming a Career Counselor, I experienced a diverse array of BUSINESS STAGES, ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURES, and LEADERSHIP STYLES in a Financial Leadership Program and series of progressive roles including:
Business Analysis Manager for a $1B Consumer Market Division
Project Financial Manager for Global Undersea Cable System Subsidiary
Financial Analyst for the launch of a Consumer Telecom Business
Financial Analyst for an Internet Communication Start-Up
Two Years of Corporate Sponsored Graduate-Level Business Education
Leveraging my business analysis background, I built Custom Career Solutions on a foundation of job market DATA, filtering out the industry noise and often misguided advice to provide proven personal branding and search strategies.
