CAN CAREER COACHING SERVICES BENEFIT MY CAREER

One of the most recent developments in the job search industry is the evolution of the career coach as an essential component for any top-level job search. We hear about coaches in the media and read about them in resume books. Five years ago, coaching was a virtually unknown profession. Today, it is evolving at a phenomenal rate!

  • Are you taking advantage of this new trend?

  • Do you know what a career coach is?

  • Could you benefit from the expertise of one?

A career coach is a trained professional (usually someone in the counseling and/or professional job search industry) who will guide you through the complexities of skills assessment, job search planning, campaign development, career marketing and long-term career management. With DMD & Associates, Inc. you will receive all of the services mentioned above and will work with someone who deeply cares about helping people return back to work quickly.
