Dearest candidate,

In reviewing your resume and discussing with you your experiences and areas of interest, I’ve come to the determination that you seem to have a gap between what you have done, what you’re capable of doing and what you ultimately want to do.

Often times, I visit with professionals who don’t have a clear idea of what their true capabilities or strengths are. Your case is different. While you clearly know and can prove via your established track record what you are very good at doing, you seem to have lost an interest is pursuing this type of work and continuing your career along your pre-established trajectory. In listening to the words you choose to describe yourself and your interests; it seems that you are seeking a parallel trajectory in a new area.

You seem to be struggling between the money you earn in your current line of work and the direction your personal goals are pointing. Are you ready to start at the bottom and invest in order to build a second career along a new slope? Are your personal finances in condition to support your career change? If not, can you plan to return to what you are currently doing and commit yourself to preparing your finances to effect the change? Are you being honest with yourself regarding the amount of time and effort involved?

I’m here to advise and support you in your decision. Just make sure that you know what it is that you really want.

Very truly yours,

Suzanne King

Very true Suzanne. When applicants have made poor career decisions in the past it is unlikely they will suddenly get better at it. Getting some good honest feedback like yours is a first step.

Looks like we've been talking to the same types of candidates..

Lots of folks right now are adrift.
