During the day my title is Career Specialist. I know, right? Funny, how life surprises you! While journeying this path called "life" I’ve got to pay for shelter and “I gotta eat”! So finding a “Day Job” became a necessity for me. One of the benefits of booking so many day jobs is that I picked up a thing or two about how to land work quick!
I get it. You’re a creative! Your plan isn’t to work in an office the rest of your life. Or carry somebody’s dinner plate back and forth! But to get to where you want to go, you’ve got to find a way to sustain a life in the New York City area.
In the past, I would offer advice to friends or siblings when they were job-seeking and discovered that certain practices would often work for them just like they did for me! I can show you simple tools to up your chances of being seen as the right fit for the job you need for the time you need it. I’ve done that so much for others it’s now become a skill.
So that’s what I do during the day: Help people find jobs. Currently, I’m doing that for a non-profit organization from 9 to 5. And I’m assisting people who are hard to place. I help them identify their strengths, name those strengths, and state them in cover letters and resumes in ways that make their job submissions pop!
If you're a creative person who needs help with your job search, let me know! We can book a time to chat, talk about what you do now, where you want to go, your ideas on how you want to get there, and what you can afford. I can guide you to that sideline gig along the way.
