I love teaching students how to effortlessly take control of their career. Experts say 2016 is candidate-driven market… which means we have more power and opportunities than ever before. But most candidates still feel overwhelmed with HOW to find and land the job of their dreams. I can help!

Through my online classes I have taught over 9000 students how to navigate today’s job market. I help students overcome the overwhelming world of resume building, LinkedIn profile creation, interviewing, networking, negotiating and much more, with ease and confidence.

Join me as I share my expertise from recruiting, career services and working at LinkedIn to train employers globally on how to recruit talent like you! I know exactly what employers are doing to find and hire you… and I will teach you how to push your career into high gear.

Don’t just take my word for it… hear directly from my students:

"Thank you so much for this course. I've watched several courses regarding LinkedIn and felt like I was still missing something until I watched your course. Your course was incredibly informative. And thank you so much for the information for veterans! My husband is a veteran and the information you presented is incredibly helpful. Thanks again!” – Patricia

“Having been out of the job hunt for almost 25 years I had no idea how to approach these topics before this course.” - Fred

“Rebecca really knows how to engage her audience and I'm sure if anyone takes a fraction of her energy into anything, they'll be sure to succeed. With great listing examples of how to counter offer or be upfront about what you want without sounding arrogant, I'm sure this course will benefit anyone who chooses to enroll.” – Youngin

“I really enjoyed the insights provided here about searching for a job. As someone who is currently seeking employment, it is helpful to hear an inside perspective on recruiting from someone who doesn't have any skin in the game of my job search (I don't want a job from them, they don't want to hire me). I never thought to use some of these resources provided before, but I will definitely look into them. Thanks!” – Julia
