According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last 2 years the average length of time that people are out of work is about 20 weeks (5 months).

If you earn $100,000 per year, you lose $400/day for each day you’re out of work. Here’s the math: $100,000/50 weeks=$2,000/week. $2,000/week divided by 5 days=$400/day.

Not only that, but the rules of the job-search game have changed, again, and you need someone on your side to help design and create materials to meet your career progression goals.

Do you know how to come up with a list of target companies you want to work for?

Do you know how to research a target company effectively?

Are you asking for informational interviews and not getting anything back?

Are you sending out resumes and not getting call backs?

Are you getting interviews but not getting offers?

With these and many other career progression goals, we can help.

In the last 15 years we’ve coached over 700 people. Many have come back to say “thank you – I really believe your approach worked!”

Recently, Don participated in a panel of networking meeting facilitators, hosted by Paul Cameron of <SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com>. There are two links to the video – the highlights (about 15 minutes), and the whole show (about 47 minutes). Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in your job search.

We have a burning passion for helping people create the tools required to successfully find a rewarding, fulfilling position in today’s workforce. Our mantra is, “if we can help you land just one day faster, then we have achieved something meaningful.” This comes from our own experiences being laid off and out of work for extended periods of time. In other words, we’ve “been there and done that.”

“Ask 100 people for resume and job search advice and get 100 differing opinions. Save yourself a lot of time and aggravation, contact Don first. He’s the pro”.

– Tom P.
CFO of a manufacturing company

Together we will create your unique branding message. We’ll explore informational interviews (how to get them and make them useful) and upon completion of our engagement, you will know how to write a handbill, thank you notes, and have an elevator pitch. You will also get ideas for follow up tracking.

“Thanks again for your continuous and efficient support in 2021. You helped me a lot, a very valuable journey! You are really talented and skilled. Nothing could have been done without you. I just want to THANK YOU SO MUCH, I learned a lot from you. Impressed by your professionalism, energy and coaching skills. You are part of this success, no doubt!”

– Philippe R.
Chief Operating Officer

When rewriting your resume it’s not only about the resume itself, that’s just one tool in your toolbox. We incorporate an holistic job-search philosophy and approach to your campaign.

“The changes you suggested helped my resume and got results.”

– Tom S.
Management consultant

Also recently, Don was interviewed by C. Steven Weirich on his Arlington-Prospect Advice Givers (APAG) Podcast. You can listen to that specific episode here. It is about 40 minutes in length, but full of useful tidbits about job search tools, strategies and tactics, as well as eCareerCoaching.com itself.

If you need:
– a resume makeover,
– coaching about interviewing,
– a more effective handbill,
– a more complete and compelling LinkedIn profile,
– an elevator pitch,
– advice on networking,
please send us an email to discuss your options. You can also book time directly with us here.

After our initial consultation, we’ll edit your resume using Google Docs for Business (G Suite) products so the next time we speak, our changes, edits, and comments will be accessible on-screen in real time. Google promotes this version as more secure than the personal version of Google Docs.

Drop us an email at “don@eCareerCoaching.com,” or check our availability here. Select a time from our schedule and we will confirm your request based on availability.

If you are currently employed and searching, our evening availability is especially convenient.

Your career is a unique journey – and it’s only yours. Let’s find a way to tell your story in the most compelling way possible.

Be found. Get hired. Faster.

About eCareerCoaching.coM LLC

(eCareerCoaching.com LLC is a Professional Member
of the Association of Professional Coaching International (APCi))

What is eCareerCoaching.com LLC all about?

Helping people get back to work.


eCareerCoaching.com LLC is all about resume writing, interview coaching, or full-on career progression coaching.

If you earn $100,000 per year, you lose $400/day for each day you’re out of work. Here’s the math: $100,000/50 weeks=$2,000/week. $2,000/week divided by 5 days=$400/day.

That’s $50 per hour You’re losing.

Couple that fact with the knowledge that we know to help you land at least one week sooner. And if you do that, you’ve paid yourself back on the investment you made in yourself and your career.

Attention veterans or active service members: eCareerCoaching.com, LLC has discounts for vets

If you are about to separate from your branch of service, you will receive a significant discount. Please let us know this fact at the start of your engagement.

eCareerCoaching.com, LLC also donates 10% of all of our revenues. Our chosen charities were created to help vets and active service members. These include the VFW, Wounded Warrior Project, USO, Green Beans Coffee, and Bunker Labs. Click on any of their names here to navigate to their websites. When you get there, please join us in helping our military members in some way.

Concerning the homeless

Finally, eCareerCoaching.com LLC also donates some of our revenues to the “Blanket the Homeless” organization. BtH is a charity that is based in the Bay Area of Northern California. The entire state of California has relatively great weather, and given that, their homeless population is huge.

In a recent study by Charles Schwab, over 59% of Americans are only one paycheck away from being homeless. There’s a domino effect. Let’s say you live too far from your place of employment to walk to work. Next, let’s say there are no forms of mass-transportation to help out in case of car trouble.

Now let’s say your car breaks down. You don’t have the money to fix it. Due to your car being broken, you lose your job. Since you’ve lost your job, you lose your home because you can’t pay rent or your mortgage. Since you can’t pay your rent, you are kicked out of your home. And now you are homeless.

The scary facts are these:

  • Over 66% of Americans have, and live by, a budget (this is pretty good, but could be better)
  • Only 38% of Americans have an “Emergency Fund” (this is bad)
  • Up to 59% of Americans are just ONE lost paycheck away from homelessness (this is very bad)
  • Up to 40% of Americans don’t have enough in liquid savings to replace their income for 3 months (ProsperityNow study) (This is also very bad)

From the same article, one person interviewed by CBS News in January of 2021 said she only had $1.08 in her bank account, after only two weeks into her furlough. And this is from a furloughed government worker.

How long are job searches today?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last 2 years, the average length of time that someone is out of work is anywhere from 20 – 27 weeks (5 – 7 months).

Prepare yourself, and let us help you prepare yourself and your materials.

Most people will wing it – but if you are an eCareerCoaching.com LLC client, we will fully prepare you to implement an effective job search.
