  • Understand how LinkedIn and social media have changed the way people look for jobs, and learn how to leverage these tools to find your next position.

I’ve known Catherine Morgan for a number of years and when I decided to undertake a major career change, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate person then Catherine to help me map it out. Catherine helped me look at my current job to assess the future potential there, focus my longer-term career goals and evaluate those offers I had on the table. I believe that her prior experience in the consulting world allows her to have a critical eye to those directional details I may have missed, as I was emotionally tied up in the process. Having a trusted resource by my side, who can provide me with ideas, be a sounding board and guide me through that critical process was invaluable. I highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking for aid in their career or life direction.

Catherine is an excellent transition and entrepreneur coach. She listens, understands, and assisted with transitioning my career. She also built my self-confidence, self-esteem and improved my attitude. I would recommend Catherine to people that are in a career transition and need coaching.

I found Catherine when I needed her services. I am a former entrepreneur going through business and personal changes. I hired Catherine to be a life coach and a resume consultant. Through the process of connecting with her I have re-evaluated my strengths and assets of what I bring into a business relationship. I have targeted a new career direction for myself and with Catherine’s guidance and support, she is making sure I am making the right long-term decisions.

We look at all issues from a 360 degree perspective and come up with several options for next steps.

  • Brainstorm about your past experiences, current interests, and market trends to come up with options for your Point B.
  • Use creative thinking to envision a career path that better reflects your life plan, interests, and values.
  • Feel like you are starting down your true path.

I had a Career Envisioning session with Catherine about a year ago. The conversation we had was a turning point in my career and helped shape the course of events that has led me to the point I am now. I can’t say enough about how happy I am that I took the step to talk with Catherine at such a pivotal moment. It was clear to me almost immediately that Catherine is among the best at what she does. She’s an unusually attentive listener and able to interpret situations from 360 degrees–offering helpful and unexpected insight. My experience with Catherine exceeded my expectations in every way; by far a great resource for anyone looking to gain clarity and momentum during transition!
