Focus. This is THE #1 thing that potential employers want in candidates. They do not want a menu presented to them: "I do everything, pick one!"

Instead, they want to know who you are and what you’ll do for them. Do you make or save money? Make or save time? Solve problems?

At Joanne Meehl Career Services, I’ll work with you to clarify your focus. Whether that’s taking it to the next level, getting unstuck, or returning to corporate life.

We’ll work together to uncover your value and I’ll teach you how to communicate this value in a way that’s genuine for you.

We’ll develop marketing strategies customized for you to increase your network and get you known!

In short, I’ll lead you through the "black hole" of the job search market to your clear goal.


"To think I spent months dreading doing my resume...if I'd only contacted you sooner, I would have saved myself all that worry. I had no idea it would be so enjoyable. I can't say enough about how good you are, Joanne, and how easy you are to work with."

"Thank you, Joanne, for teaching me that I have to show not only what I've done, but its impact, too. An engineer like me needs to do more than just list skills and tools -- I needed to communicate my successes, and now I do. No one can say "So what" to my resume now.
