For many people the job search process is difficult at best if you are in a location where you know people. This program is designed specifically for relocating professionals. The mountain of information available related to the job search process via books, the Internet, and other sources has been reviewed and condensed to bring you the techniques most relevant to your situation and the DFW area.

Working with you, I will enhance your efforts by providing guidance, feedback, accountability and support for dealing with the inevitable ups and downs of this significant life change.

Although there are seldom easy answers to finding your ideal job, there are simple ones. After 23 years, I have learned that it is not the big “things” as much as the little “things” and the sequence in which these little “things” occur, that make the difference in a productive job search or career change.

So, what’s included? Here are some of the program components. This isn’t all of them because, right now, I don’t know what’s most important to you.

The late John Wooden, basketball coach at UCLA who won more NCAA titles than any coach to date, never talked about winning. He preached preparation.

A few “preparation” questions to consider:

  • Is your next step, in fact, another position?
  • If not, what is it?
  • Where do you see yourself in the next three years? The next year? The next six months?
  • What new skills or new perspectives do you need to acquire to support achievement of your goals?
  • What have you tried/thought of already?
  • What are your key differentiators in the marketplace?
  • How do you articulate your value?
  • What does your executive networking base look like?
  • What resources do you need?
  • What are the roadblocks you expect or know about?
  • What are you worth in today’s job market?
  • How do you achieve the top end of the salary range?
  • What new skills or new perspectives do you need to acquire to support achievement of your goals?
  • What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

  • Who do you go to when your hair is “on fire”?
