“…I recommend every job seeker work with an experienced Career Coach at the onset of their job search, and if possible throughout the duration. A quality Career Coach knows the lay of the land and can collaborate with you to put together a game plan that takes into account your strengths and the values that employers desire the most. The coach will also help you understand the process and challenges you will face and prepare you for the ups and downs you are bound to encounter….. Plus, the right coaching can cut the time you remain unemployed by 15 to 25% and maybe more.” Quote by Perry Newman, CPC CSMS, nationally recognized resume writer and certified recruiter.
