As a career coach and founder of ForwardThink Careers, I thoroughly enjoy helping job seekers find a job they love in the quickest and most stress-free way possible. Because let's be totally honest here...doing a job search can be one of the most unenjoyable ways to spend your time.
I truly understand the frustration of sending off resumes and never hearing back. Or feeling like you bombed an interview even though you SWORE you were prepared. Or wondering if your LinkedIn profile is helping or hurting you. Or...knowing you should be networking, but not exactly sure how.
That's Where I Come In...
Whether you're going through a career transition or are in the middle of a job search, I'll help you with you with all the critical components (resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, interview prep, etc.). I'll also guide you in using a multi-pronged networking approach to tap the hidden job market - the upwards of 80% of jobs that aren't posted online!
It all started when working in recruiting and HR in both the corporate and non-profit sectors. While doing full-cycle recruiting for a wide array of positions, I reviewed thousands of resumes and cover letters, interviewed hundreds of job seekers, and made job offers to over a hundred final candidates.
In doing this work, I quickly learned why certain job seekers stood out and why others landed in the "no" pile. More than anything, I was motivated and inspired to arm candidates with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their job search.
My interest in career coaching was sparked while volunteering at Upwardly Global, an organization that assists new immigrants with their job search. I then got certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches. The coaching skills I honed from this program along with my experience on the "other side of the hiring table" propelled me into the career coaching field and starting ForwardThink Careers.

Janna is a truly wonderful career coach, and I am so very glad that I found her! She came into my life at exactly when I needed her the most. I was floundering in my job search, had little direction and a lot of fear. Janna's positive and caring character, years of experience as a recruiter, and her career coaching certification make her the PERFECT coach for those who are feeling vulnerable and lost in their job search. She gave me constructive, helpful advice and the practical tools I needed to stand out from the crowd. Most importantly, Janna's support helped me feel confident about myself as a job candidate, and that has made all the difference in the world. If you are serious about your job search, I highly recommend that you contact her.Carrie, Marketing & Communication Specialist, Los Angeles
Getting laid-off (for the first time) creates a lot of personal turmoil, however in my case I had the good fortune of having Janna in my corner during my job search. She really knows the ins and outs of job hunting. She helped me with my resume and cover letters so that they were focused on what I had really accomplished in my career, both soft and hard skills. She also showed me how the resumes and cover letters could be customized and tailored to the job description. The hard part of the process, for me, was prepping for interviews. I had not interviewed for many years and was not good at it. She worked with me performing mock interviews, helping me answer the difficult questions in a concise and organized way and generally pointing me in the right direction - she knows the questions!! As my interviewing skills improved I started getting positive feedback from my interviewers and ultimately landed a new position. Finally, there was something I did not expect to get, but glad I did was a very positive and energetic partner. Really great to have someone on your side as you navigate through the difficulties of job hunting. Honestly, do yourself a favor and hire Janna. She goes above and beyond.Steve, Data Analyst, Los Angeles
Having managed to steer clear of the job-search market for more than a decade, I was wholly unprepared when presented unexpectedly with an invitation to interview for an exiting new job opportunity. Janna Kefalas skillfully walked me through every detail of the interview process: the questions to anticipate, the questions to ask, the details I should and shouldn’t share -- even what to wear. Under Janna’s guidance, I went into the first round of interviews feeling prepared and confident, and believe that without her leading the way, I wouldn’t have made it as far as I did: I got the job!. So whether you’re contemplating a full career transition, or simply looking for a new opportunity within your industry, Janna’s coaching will not let you down.Emily, Event Director, Washington DC
