My journey into career coaching started 20+ years ago as a freelance writer penning career related articles for a major newspaper. From that opportunity, my resume writing expertise evolved through professional training and working within the resume writing sector in Canada and US.
This experience fueled my desire to help others define their career path and discover job opportunities and morphed into honing my skills as a Career Coach and Job Search Specialist. To enhance my abilities to assist job seekers, my journey continued with successful completion of the Career Development Foundations Program (Honors) (CDP) and Career Coaching Certificate (Honors), designation of Certified Career Strategist (CCS), and Certified Life Coach (CLC).
To compliment my academic training, skills and satisfy my passion to support the unemployed and jobseeker in transition to connect with jobs matched to their interests, qualifications and skills sets, I enriched my professional experience through work within the non-profit sector supporting aspiring entrepreneurs to start their small business. This experience further supported my interest to help individuals to find meaningful work and financial independence through self-employment.
I am passionate about supporting jobseekers of all ages specializing in mid-career professionals in a career transition to uncover suitable employment and explore a new career direction through my personalized coaching program.
My services include:
✔ 1-1 Career Coaching (In-Person, Phone, Skype, Email)

Good sessions, interesting talks, but is difficult to keep the motivation with her, she did not give you many options either creative alternatives to continue with your career. She takes notes with you about the sessions and gives you some test to look out your interests and skills.Mackenzie
I had a great experience working with Christine. Her knowledge, guidance and support was what I needed during my career transition. I would recommend working with Christine!Sherry Madden
After job searching on my own for a few months with no success I started to become unsure of my own professional skills. Christine took me through step by step from the beginning. We went through exactly what I already accomplished in my career, what skills I had and how I can use these accomplishments and skills moving forward. We then did a few assessments which opened my eyes which has now lead me to a career change and registering for courses that will help me with knowledge of my new field. The great thing is Christine is patient and she is a fantastic listener and she answers your questions either by phone or email which i prefer. Thanks to Christine I had a positive, confident outlook going forward and her coaching was invaluable investment. "Thanks and continue to do a great job because this is your calling."Sean R, Accounting Specialist, Oshawa, ON
Chris did an AMAZING job on my resume and cover letter. In a very short time my resume was transformed from an old outdated resume of a professional woman who had been a stay home mother in the last 6 years, to a contemporary resume showcasing my skills, qualifications and experience. In a very short time I was invited for interviews and have now secured a good position with the Government. Thanks again Chris!Sue A, Client Service Representative, Oshawa, Ontario
I would like to confirm that I have used Christine's services to help create my resume. Chris was so professional and helpful. The rates, of course, were very reasonable. I would also like to say that I got a job after 3 weeks I had my resume done. Before (hiring Christine), I was a little bit ashamed to present my resume, but now I am much more confident. I would suggest her services because they are really effective.Michele, Customer Service Representative, Toronto, Ontario
Christine is a knowledgeable, supportive career coach. I've initially requested her expertise on drafting cover letters, and resumes. She has been supportive and patient and I'm glad that I also had her guidance throughout the job search, pre- & post-interview process. I recommend her expert services with her years of experience, recruiting industry knowledge and her highly responsive, motivational, supportive coaching.Chris, Procurement Specialist, Toronto, Ontario
I had Christine rework my resume and cover letter and enjoyed the process. She was knowledgeable and asked questions and clarification when needed. I have received very positive feedback on the resume and cover letter from other sources and will be recommending her services to others.Don K, EHS Advisor, Calgary, Alberta
