Find My Profession

Find My Profession offers a one-of-a-kind experience that goes far beyond any other career coaching service on this list.

While traditional career coaches will teach you how to find a job, Find My Profession’s Career Finder service will do the work for you.

This white-glove service will search for jobs on your behalf, apply for you with a customized resume to fit the application, and network with key decision-makers to secure interviews.

The only thing they won’t do is show up to the interview for you. But don’t worry, this service includes interview preparation to make sure you’ll crush any interviews they land you.

Pros icon PROS

You can save hundreds of hours searching for jobs, filling out applications, customizing your resume, and networking. Finally, you can pay someone to find you a job. Your dedicated Reverse Recruiter will create a personalized strategy to manage all aspects of your job search. Each Reverse Recruiter only works with four clients at a time, providing you with personalized attention and care.

Cons icon CONS

If you’re looking for a traditional career coach to help you change career paths, this service may not be a good fit. The Reverse Recruiting service is for professionals who know what kind of job they want but don’t have the time or energy to find it on their own. There is also usually a waitlist of about one month.

Experience Was Excellent

I had the opportunity to work with Melissa, and I must say the experience was excellent. The communication was great, the level of professionalism and effectiveness was very high, from identifying the right jobs to networking with the right people in LinkedIn! I highly recommend this service to anyone in a senior position who is serious about finding a new job. Take it from me, you can not do it better yourself.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

The huge value of Find My Profession is having an expert job hunter searching and applying for jobs for you while you go on with your busy life. These guys are sophisticated, experienced and well-connected. If you are in no hurry, love the idea of spending hours a day on your computer searching through job databases, and fielding endless inane correspondence from recruiters, by all means *don’t* hire Find My Profession and do the work yourself. If not, hire these guys.

Secured A Great Role!

I am so pleased with my experience with Steven Lowell at FMP. I was looking to change industries, but too busy and overwhelmed with my day-to-day to embark on the journey on my own. Not only did he do the heavy lifting with applications, but was a readily available resource in coaching to ensure I nailed interviews and marketed myself in the best way possible. He has helped to give me realistic expectations without short-changing myself or my skills to get the job I wanted. Thanks to him, I was able to secure a great role at my dream company within 6 weeks!

Exceeded My Expectations

I cannot say enough great things about working with Melissa C. She far exceeded my expectations. On top of job search interactions, she expanded my network, not focusing on quantity, but by quality as well. She delivered both. Thank you Melissa.

Excellent Service

David is by far the best reverse recruiter I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He truly goes above and beyond in everything he does when he works with you, and the results definitely show it. He was professional throughout the entire experience. His attention to detail, overall industry knowledge, and the way he takes care of his clients is best in class. Also, turnaround time and email responses were done very quickly. If you don’t work with David for your job search needs, you’re missing out big time!

Highly Recommend

It had been 18 years since I’d had to job search, and had no idea where to start. Steven was very skilled in networking, helping me find positions that were of interest, but weren’t necessarily ones I would have looked for myself, applying, (and outside his job description) dealing with my emotions as I got rejections, and became frustrated trying to figure out what I was searching for. I appreciate how fast I was able to find something that I feel like will be a great fit, and I would highly recommend Steven and this service.
