While there’s a lot of great free advice out there on the web, sometimes it’s not enough. Sometimes you need a career expert. A career coach, resume writer or personal branding expert. Someone with a little career mojo. Enough to lift you up and carry you down a new path.
We all need a little help now and then, right?
Introducing a new directory that includes a growing list of the best career experts in the world. The advice is no longer 100% free, but it is more personal and dedicated. To helping you find your next great role or to help transition you to a new industry or function.
Some of these experts have written guest posts. I love this because you get a chance to meet a few of them. To see how they think. And get a glimpse at their writing style. And their personality.
To find a career expert in your area, simply add your zip code, city, state/province or country to the search box and choose an expert category. Then click “submit”. Also remember that many of these experts work virtually and do not need to be in your city to allow for a great relationship! So if you don’t find someone local, try a search just by expert area with nothing in the search box.
You can also look for sites featuring the approved logo (above)!
I’ll be reviewing each and every submission to make sure they are someone you’d want to contact. Someone you can trust.
Please be patient while the list grows, won’t you? And when you contact one of these fine experts, tell them Tim sent you.
