Your professional experience may be undervalued by recruiters and hiring managers who are too focused on skills and ignore the strategic and critical thinking skills that let you excel at your job.
John Tarnoff - Candidate-Centric Career Advocate & Strategist
Hiring is broken.
As a mid-career professional, you are getting lost because the system doesn't know how to value people approaching or after 50.
Instead, take back control over your career, define the value you deliver, and get your network to sell that for you.
This is the specific set of skills, abilities, and experiences that you use to define the ideal role you want to pursue.
Build a community of like-minded professionals to help connect you to opportunities and attract referrals, recruiters, employers, and clients to you.
Stand up for what you stand for to build trust, authority, and credibility in your field and extend your reputation.
a successful, meaningful, and purposeful career starts here:
John has a process that just works. It helped me analyze myself anew as a person, a father, a leader, and a professional. John also has a huge amount of experience and used this to provide direction, support, and guidance that was incredibly helpful. John was engaging, supportive, and flexible throughout the time we worked together.
I recommend John wholeheartedly. For those considering working with John – do it! If you do, put your whole self into it and trust the process and it will be enormously impactful.
senior tech executive | Global Sales & GTM Leader
I flew to Austin on Monday. I had a 3 hour lunch with the founders and the leadership team. I told my wife afterwards it was probably the best interview experience I've ever had (in my life).The recruiter called me the next day to tell me they were offering me the job. Accepted on the spot.
I'm really feeling great about the decision I made and how I made it. Thank you for the 8 sessions that made this possible.
Senior Operations & Supply Chain Leader
After taking an in-depth personal assessment, we created a detailed strategy, process and specific tactics to tackle my transition journey. John is amazing to work with––He is well-versed and experienced in successfully guiding people through critical career transitions.
I would highly recommend working with John to successfully navigate the "next chapter" in your career.
Senior Content STrategy/brand partnership leader
I hugely recommend John as a career coach. I am an age 60+ woman who, earlier this year, felt stuck and increasingly despondent about how to transition into a more fulfilling, mission-driven job. Today, after completing John’s coaching program, I am re-energized, clear, and committed to successfully finding and winning the right opportunity.
Senior Global Communications Strategist
I have worked with several executive coaches in my career journey and John is by far the most effective. John helped me dig deeper as I developed my value proposition. John is a brilliant and intuitive coach who pushed me in all the right ways to tell my story in a new and more impactful way. I will definitely work with John again and highly recommend him.
Senior Retail solutions & Business Development Leader
I was hesitant at first to pay upfront for an intangible. I didn’t want to do something different only to get the same result. I can honestly say that hiring John was a brilliant move. He is intelligent, consistent, and skilled at helping people find their way, and you will leave his program with a framework to grow and achieve your goals.
Retail Merchandising & Point-of-Sale Strategist
Unlike most coaches (who come out of HR), I spent over three decades as a corporate exec, freelancer, and startup entrepreneur before finding my next calling as an educator (Carnegie-Mellon Univ.), and career coach.
For over ten years, I've been supporting mid-career professionals going through career transition.
My Three Elements Career Builder framework flips the broken hiring system on its head and makes you the master of your own career destiny.
It's deceptively simple, but incredibly effective.
If you don't build your own dream, someone else will hire you to help build theirs.
