KTS Career Coaching is a boutique firm providing customized career coaching and assessments, job search assistance to individuals in all career stages and admissions
interviewing preparation for college, university and MBA program applicants. My
clients include mid- to senior career professionals seeking new jobs,
those returning to the workforce after taking time off, recent graduates
seeking their first full-time job or individuals changing careers. I have
worked with clients in entertainment, education, engineering, the technology
sector, finance, business, nonprofits, communication & media, science, the
arts, veterans and more.
For many years I interacted with human resources representatives in various industries which has given me insight into what recruiters seek from candidates. My 25 years of career counseling experience has made me comfortable working with clients who may be apprehensive about conducting job searches and admissions interviews; whereas many have entered the career coaching field with minimal experience. With so much information available online, it can be challenging to navigate a job search on one's own. I remain current about job search, résumé writing, interviewing and career development trends through my involvement with professional associations.
I hold the Master Career Counselor designation from the National Career Development Association (NCDA), am a Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW) and a member of the Professional Association of Résumé Writers/Career Coaches (PARW/CC). My Bachelor’s degree is in Psychology and my Master’s degree is in Industrial Psychology. Professionally, I have held positions in higher education at the University of Southern California, Occidental College and the Claremont Colleges including serving as a Director of Career Services for 12 years. With my international experience of living in three countries and visiting 33 countries, I have an understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures.
In addition, I have been a mock interview consultant with two highly regarded international Education Admissions Advising companies. My college and MBA clients have been accepted into: Columbia University Business School | Duke University Fuqua School of Business | Harvard Business School | INSEAD Business School | Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University | London Business School | Massachusetts Institute of Technology | Michigan Ross School of Business | New York University Stern School of Business | New York University, Abu Dhabi | Pomona College | Stanford Graduate School of Business | UCLA Anderson School of Management University of California Berkeley Haas School of Business | University of California, Berkeley | University of Chicago Booth School of Business | University of Toronto | Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
