My ideal clients are go-getters who are able to get creative & think outside the box when it comes to job search strategy and then are willing to do what it takes to put themselves out there to get noticed by their ideal companies to land the job.

I measure success by my clients ending up in fulfilling roles at companies where they can thrive (oftentimes without ever applying online).
