Welcome to Gentle Job Search & Career Services
Our specialty is helping you identify and implement strategies that fit your style. We recognize that the skills you need to succeed at job search are different from the skills you need to succeed on the job.
If “tooting your own horn” doesn’t come naturally to you, if the idea of having to “sell yourself” to land a job makes you cringe, if networking makes you nervous, or if shyness or introversion are holding you back, we will work with you to develop strategies that let you present yourself effectively but in an honest and authentic manner.
If one or more of the following statements describes you, we can help.
Our services are designed to move you forward from any point in your transition. Whether you’re trying to figure out “What do I want to be when I grow up?” (a question people of all ages ask) or you’re highly focused on your career goals, we will collaborate with you to develop the best next steps for you, to advance your career.
