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 Reverse Recruiting 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.
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.
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.
