Make your career transition happen - without overwhelm.

Make your
career transition happen - without overwhelm.

Our working hours comprise many of our waking hours. These hours can be spent thoughtfully, intentionally. Our work can feel engaging – like we’re tapping our potential. Do you have this? If not, do you want this?

YOUR WORK IS MORE THAN A PAYCHECK

GET STARTED

The Career Transition Intensive equips you with all the essentials to make your career change happen. 

I designed this Intensive to mirror the work I’ve done 1:1 with hundreds of clients over the years. The Intensive distills the crucial resources that have helped my clients clarify and secure their desired career move.

Want an efficient transition? You can complete the Intensive in just 8-weeks. Want to take your time? You can go at your own pace.

Welcome to the Career Transition Intensive.

READY FOR A CHANGE? GET UNSTUCK?

Is it time for a
career move? 

Is it Time For a Career Move?

Burnout: ​​“I have unmanaged, accumulating work stress that is impacting the quality of my life.”

Stalled Growth: “I’m not learning anything new, and I don’t see an attractive path forward that involves growth.”

Values Misalignment: “My work is inconsistent with my values – I feel like I’m contributing to something I don’t believe in.”

Unmet Priorities: “My work does not meet my needs. I need more flexibility / pay / engagement / collaboration / creativity.”

THE TOP REASONS MY CLIENTS SAY THEY’RE READY

Missing Meaning: “I know there is something more for me – there is more I’m supposed to be doing with my life.”

She helped me build my personal brand, and strengthen and refine my resume and portfolio. But most importantly, she has also helped me reframe how I define growth and success in my life, both professionally and personally.

— Lily Felder

“Brandy has helped me identify what career paths are possible for me.”

I knew that practicing law was not the right fit.  I felt burned out and it was impacting all areas of my life. I couldn’t imagine a role in the law that was attractive. I knew there must be work for me that was more aligned to who I am and what I what, but making a career change felt overwhelming. 

It wasn't until staying felt harder than leaving that I let myself move on.

And I use what I learned to help you.

I NOW leverage my CAREER CHANGe EXPERIENCE AND THE EXPERIENCES OF MY CLIENTS TO MAKE IT easier for you.

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I FELT STUCK.

This workshop walks you through each step to establish your personal brand. Think of your brand as the takeaway you want a hiring manager to have about you. Effective personal branding means your audience won’t have to work to discern how you’ll make a contribution. You’ll have taken on the burden of defining and communicating your value for them.

Your resume is the most important component of your job application. It can open doors – and close them. In this workshop, we’ll cover the two audiences you need to consider when crafting your resume. We’ll also discuss tactics for the three types of resumes you’ll want to create – a comprehensive, an industry-specific, and a job-specific resume.

Your Six Career Transition Workshops 

Effective Personal Branding

Resumes That Work

WORKSHOP one

WORKSHOP two

LinkedIn is an essential hub for hiring managers to connect, recruit, and learn more about a potential hire. This workshop will include all the strategic steps you can take to create a LinkedIn profile that works for you, not against you. By the end, you’ll know just what edits you want to make on your profile and how to make those edits.

LinkedIn Profile Design

WORKSHOP four

Cover letters are an often missed opportunity to reveal something more than what’s in your resume – they help an employer know you, like you, and trust you. You’ll walk away with three distinct, strategic cover letter approaches and a clear gameplan.

Memorable Cover Letters

WORKSHOP Three

LET'S BREAK it DOWN

The interview preparation strategy I provide in this workshop is probably counter to most of what you’ve been told. My approach to interviews will help instill you with confidence and ease and eradicate anxiety. You may feel interviews are manageable or that they’re intimidating. 

Essential Interview Skills

WORKSHOP SIX

Whether you’re preparing to apply or already applying, this workshop will help you be efficient and effective with your applications. We’ll discuss competitive and stretch applications, timing, planning, and Deep Work. We’ll talk about what works and common pitfalls to avoid. You’ll also walk away with an action plan on leveraging relationships – the “secret job market.”

Job Search Strategy

WORKSHOP FIVE

RESERVE YOUR SPOT

How It Works

You can use these sessions as you like, but many clients enjoy strategizing together about options and getting clear about their career direction.

FIRST YOUR 1:1 SESSIONS

You’ll gain insights in these workshops to pursue your aim - with the essentials you need to articulate your value, strategically apply, and skillfully interview.

THEN YOUR WORKSHOPS

You’ve utilized the workshop strategies to your resume, cover letters, and LinkedIn. Now you’ll get custom edits to help you apply with confidence.

AND THEN CUSTOM EDITS

“Brandy was easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. She is whip smart and an excellent thought partner to help you navigate a career or job change.”

Brandy led me through a valuable career brainstorm and helped me narrow in on a role. She provided resources and guidance to build my personal brand, and tactical help on cleaning up my LinkedIn and resume. I highly recommend Brandy!

STEPHANIE LANDED AT GOOGLE

Yes, It Really Works

“After a couple months of working with Brandy, I landed a position with a company that I have always looked up to.”

I would not have been able to have the confidence to apply and interview without Brandy's support. I highly recommend Brandy to anyone who feels stuck and needs someone to guide them through the process of a career change.

SIMON INTERVIEWED WITH CONFIDENCE AND GOT THE OFFER

“Brandy helped me find a much needed balance in my job search.”

I spent way less time spinning on job sites and LinkedIn and prioritized my own wellness, which ultimately went a long way in getting me a job. I recommend Brandy if you need someone to help center you and guide you to think about what you really want out of your life, instead of just what seems possible career-wise.

EVELYN STOPPED SPINNING AND UNCOVERED WHAT SHE REALLY WANTED

Your career matters – it’s how you spend most of your time and it’s how you make a living. So, of course, a career change can feel uncomfortable or destabilizing. You also have other things going on, and changing your job can feel like a part-time job. You want to get started, you just need to know where to start. You need milestones, direction, and a clear plan of action. You want your efforts to pay off.

You can navigate this chapter with confidence. If you’re anything like my clients, you have motivation and tenacity to act, you just need direction and to know what works.

You're in the right place.

Many of my clients leave their roles because they’re experiencing burnout. But for nearly all of them, it’s not just the demands of the job, but also their own behaviors that allow for accumulated stress and burnout. This tool will help you ensure that your burnout doesn’t follow you to your next role.

You can tell she loves her work and harnesses her energy for the great benefit of her clients. For anyone in between jobs, looking for a career shift or just trying to stay centered to achieve one’s future goals, I cannot recommend Brandy enough.

— Jake Saliba

"I cannot recommend Brandy enough"

After a 60-minute meeting you'll leave with practical strategies, plans, and direction for your professional aspirations . . . she guides you through exercises, discussion, and goal setting to help you along the road of discovering your career passion.

— Doug Frigon

"You'll leave with practical strategies, plans, and direction"

When I started working with Brandy, I had very little motivation or confidence about working anywhere at all. We have been working together now for several weeks at a steady pace, and I now have a resume that I feel very good about, and excitement to take the step into a new work adventure. Working with Brandy has been invaluable to me. Truth be told, I will miss having our sessions together

— Kate Klaire

more about mE

hey there!

I created what I wish I'd had.

I once felt so stuck in my job. It was only when staying became more intimidating than leaving that I was ready to make a change. But I had too many voices in my head and in my life chiming in on how I should proceed – and the chorus was anything but harmonious. You should stick with it. It’s time to make a change. You’re going to regret doing this. You’re going to regret not doing this. You can’t do this. You can do this. 

I couldn’t take action until I had a clear destination. And even once the destination was clear, the steps to arrive were blurry on the best days. I needed direction. I needed a roadmap. I needed a thought partner who’d done it already and could guide my way. 

YOU HAVE THE TENACITY TO MAKE YOUR FUTURE WHAT YOU WANT, YOU JUST MAY NEED A GUIDE.

Who is this designed to help?

You want a change, but need more clarity.

Not sure where you’re headed yet? You don’t have to have it all figured out to begin. This is where most of my clients start when we begin coaching together. 

We will leverage our 1:1 sessions to create clarity around your options. We'll utilize tools rooted in design thinking. We’ll create possibilities.  Once we’ve narrowed in on one or two paths forward, you’ll be ready for all the application and job-search strategy provided by the workshops.

You want a significant career PIVOT.

You want a meaningful change in your career – not a subtle shift. You seek a change in your role or your industry (or both).

Maybe you want to take a strategic approach to this big change by taking it one transition at a time (either role or industry). This helps you stay competitive and means you won’t start at the beginning of a new trajectory. Or perhaps you’re ready to tackle this meaningful change all at once. Whether you’re a recent graduate starting from scratch, or a seasoned professional starting again, we’ll equip you to make your career transition.

You want a new job, not a major CHANGE.

Perhaps you’re happy with work you’re doing now or with work you’ve done in the past. You like your role and industry, you just need to make a shift.

Perhaps you’d like to work at a different company or with a slightly different team or mission. Maybe you want growth opportunities. This is a great place to be. You know what you want and you already have relevant education or experience. You likely have a network in this industry that you can leverage (we’ll explore this work in the Job Search Strategy Workshop). Our work will help you convey your value to your desired employer.
