A career “consultant” – uses a variety of tools and assessments to identify skills, abilities, values, motives and recommends change based on those assessments. The process is based on what you “have” or have “achieved”. Career Consulting may take as few as 1-3 meetings.
A career “coach” – help individuals change, obtain, achieve so that they can “get” what they envision but may not yet be qualified for. A career coach helps you to craft a plan and then supports you will you reach the milestone and goals of that plan.
The Northwest Coaching Group is also a great resource for resume building and interview coaching.

I am more centered personally and more cognizant of my time. I keep asking my self, is what I am doing not getting me to where I want to be long term.” Shawn D.
