“Don’t set compensation as a goal. Find work you like, and the compensation will follow.”

~ Harding Lawrence

Looking for a job is hard work. It’s time consuming. Unpredictable. Often frustrating. Sometimes exciting (hopefully!). The idea of looking for a job, moving to a new industry, or changing careers altogether, can create a whirlwind of emotions and present personal challenges that make the process daunting for even the most savvy professional. And as supportive as your family, friends and colleagues may be, sometimes they’re so invested in the outcome that the advice they share has more to do with them than it has to do with you. That’s why so many people are turning to career coaches who listen to your interests and goals without judgment or expectations.
