1-on-1 executive career coaching
Your executive-level experience… could be a liability.
Decades of experience do not guarantee a job offer.
In fact, many highly experienced professionals are dumped out of the workforce every year in a layoff. These top-level managers and c-suite executives assume their impressive resume will speak for itself. Instead, they find themselves perplexed and frustrated when their application gets ignored. Or worse, they get labeled “overqualified.”
It typically takes executive-level professionals 4 times longer to find a job than entry and mid-level workers.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Guiding Your Career is your resource for executive career coaching and on-demand training to help you build a successful, lucrative career.

Everything you need to know to become the top applicant

- Close the deal… and get the precious job offers others can’t.
Never put all of your work experience on your resume.
When you have decades of experience, it’s challenging to know what to put on your resume. Many professionals list all of their experience — every job title, license, certification, degree, and credential they’ve earned over the past 25 years. Rather than impressive, this typically makes you seem unfocused and overqualified. John will help you clearly communicate your value. So you start landing interviews. And winning the job offers others can’t.
It’s (still) not about what you know, but who you know.
Many high-level professionals make the mistake of relying solely on their credentials to land a high-level position. While qualifications matter, earning the trust of the company matters more. Building a strategic network that can vouch for you is the best way to earn the trust of any company seeking to learn more about you. Your bi-weekly coaching sessions with John, along with your on-demand courses, will equip you to build a strategic network. So you will become unstoppable in your career.
What if you could get the job you want, just by asking for it?
Nothing stands out like confidence. That’s truer for upper management applicants than for anyone else. John will teach you how to make a lasting impression on your interviewer and close the deal with confidence. This training will put you in the top 1% of candidates who always get the job offers others can’t.
