What time is it for you? For your son or daughter? For your students?
Services for new & near grads
Are you nervous about entering the work force? Unsure of how to proceed? Maybe you've got a resume that's not getting any responses. Or you've been to some career fairs, and none of the jobs are resonating with you. You know it's launch-time...but have you taken the time to figure out where you'll really fit in?
My name is Kristin Snow, and I can help. The biggest stumbling block to finding a job is not knowing yourself well enough to determine what you'll be good at. I'll work with you, either in-person, google hang-out or on the phone, to come up with a solution. It will be a casual discussion about your likes and dislikes, your skills and knowledge, and your hopes and dreams.
Then we'll get practical. I'll go over typical structures in corporations, non-profits, start-ups and other organizations, and talk about where you might fit in. We'll also drill down into the details of jobs and job functions. Finally, we'll talk about business areas that are in need of staff, which will increase your ability to get hired. Somewhere along the line, you'll sense a match between who you are, where you'll feel both comfortable and engaged, and what might be a viable entry point to your emerging career.
From here, we'll create your "Launch-box," a set of tools you'll use to create your personal brand - your resume, cover letter, interview narrative and social profiles. These will be flexible documents you can easily change, depending on the job you're applying for. We'll also come up with a strategy for searching for jobs, and together, we'll track the ones you've applied for through a google sheet. Throughout the job hunt process, I'll be searching for and placing jobs on the sheet, and provide ongoing coaching to ensure you stay on track.
If you're reading this, you're interested in giving your new or near grad a great launch after college and a long-term advantage in their future happiness and security.

Placing STEM students may be a little easier than finding first-time jobs for those in Liberal Arts. But Liberal Arts skills are highly adaptable to the workforce. I offer the following presentations to bolster Liberal Arts students' knowledge of various workplaces, what jobs exist within them and how well-suited the students are to those jobs.
