Learn more about Dave, Aaron, and our career counseling approach.

I came to Dave with my tail between my legs – I had lost my job in higher education and my confidence and outlook were beaten up a bit. He first helped me sort out some of those feelings and emotions to get on a better footing to look for work. He pointed me to resources that helped me with practical steps and developing a different mental framework to connect with my values and the bigger picture.

Dave encouraged me to network. He helped me to strategize and organize to most effectively do this. I have to say that this was one of the most important things I gained in our work – networking with people is a powerful tool (whether you are looking for a job or not).

Dave does not do the work for you, but he is very good at prompting and encouraging when action needed to be made.

When I was offered a new job Dave helped me think through the offer to optimize my negotiations with the new employer.
