— Joe M. Nonprofit Professional
When I reached out to Emily, I had relocated to a new geographic area and needed help finding the right next step. Initially, I was a little afraid to commit the time and money. But after going through our sessions, I know it was remarkably helpful. Emily is a great coach who really listens to your concerns and comes up with a personalized program to fulfill your goals. She helps with what you want, but also encourages you to think even beyond what you think you need in order to better support you and lead you to more fulfilling outcomes. I feel more confident and empowered in my career as I start my new job. The clarity I got and support I received at a really critical juncture was so worth the investment!
— Shaina W., Nonprofit & Advocacy Professional
After a few years of working on short-term, part-time consulting projects, I began working with Emily to think through whether I wanted to keep consulting, take a full-time job, or even change fields altogether. Working with Emily helped me clarify what I was looking for - and decide to accept a full-time job I’m really excited about, while also making space to explore other fields and projects that I’m interested in. As someone who’s worked in nonprofits and politics herself, Emily’s understanding of this landscape was incredibly helpful. Highly recommend!

The PIVOT Curriculum

ELEMENTS OF OUR CURRICULUM:

  1. Clarity & Awareness: We strongly believe you have to know where you are and where you've been in order to make informed and strategic decisions about where you're headed next in your career.

    Our curriculum includes one or two diagnostic tools that help you grow your awareness and discover what makes you special and how to best align your future work.

  2. Strategic Career Mapping: We help you walk through all the various career path options you have in front of you and facilitate an analysis of which ones will maximize your fulfillment and success. Our exercises and reflections help you zero in on what's really important to you, and prepare you with the key questions you need to ask to know if it's the right fit for you.

  3. Clarity & Polish of Your Story & Purpose: There are a ton of common questions you need eloquent answers to at the ready. 'Tell me about yourself...' 'Walk us through your resume' and 'What are you looking to do next?' are some of the most likely questions you'll get in your transition.

    We help you uncover the unique thread and story in a way that boosts your confidence and the delivery of these key communication pieces.

  4. Structure & Action Plan Your Search: Often times a job search is a marathon, not a sprint.

    We help you create a structure and format for your search process that will keep you from losing your mind and maximize your time and energy.

 
When I found Pivot, I was looking to transition in my job, but I wanted to set myself up for the best search possible by ensuring I was looking at places with the right culture and responsibilities for me (since looking for a job and interviewing sometimes isn’t the hard part - it’s more making sure you’re finding the right fit!). Going through the Pivot curriculum was life changing. Emily helps you uncover your strengths, key motivations and what you need in a job and culture so you find the *right* job based off of deeper parts of yourself. Even though I had used some of the tools before, it was so helpful to work through these things with Emily. Without doing this work, I think it’s easy to get into the wrong position.
— Amanda V. Business Development
In less than 10 sessions with Emily I was able to make a transition from working in finance to real estate. As a result of the coaching, I now understand how to dissect a job posting and analyze exactly what the company is looking for and effectively use that information to customize my application. Emily helped me craft a more polished story so that I was much more confident and successful in the interview process. I would not start your job search or career transition without first working with her.

All I knew when I started working with Emily was that my current job and profession wasn’t right for me.

We started by using a few qualitative tools to help me objectively analyze whether different career paths and jobs would actually fit my skills, cater to my strengths, and avoid the triggers that made me dissatisfied where I was.

She helped me overcome my fears (and excuses) of why I shouldn’t make a career change by encouraging me to explore industries I was considering, and test out what another role might be like. This meant I was moving in the right direction by gathering information without taking any risks or quitting my then-current job.

By encouraging me to take these tiny and manageable steps between each session, I eventually gathered the information, relationships, and confidence that I needed to make a change. From there, she helped me decide between many options that were great, and I couldn’t be more excited about the new position I just started!

Emily will give you a roadmap and the tools you need to make the changes you want but don’t know how to do. She has a worksheet or article or book recommendation for every issue! And, the best part is that she uses data-driven tests and information specific to her clients that help her customize her action plan for you in a way that caters to what you want for you life.

As a person, Emily is positive, energetic, responsive, creative, and wicked smart. She cares deeply about improving the lives of her clients, and is excellent at curating a game-plan for a variety of industries and skill-sets because she listens so well. She has brought tremendous value to my life.

What Others Have Said: 

I first attended a Pivot Career Mapping Workshop and then found myself in need of more support finding a new and better aligned position. Emily really knows her stuff and deeply cares about her clients. She fully engages in your challenges and is super helpful and responsive when you need a hand. As a result of the workshops, and just a handful of coaching sessions, I have a much better understanding of my value, and the types of organizations I would be a good fit for. And her knowledge of the ‘ins and outs’ of job searching, resume and cover letter writing, and interview skills were life saving. I would highly recommend attending a Pivot workshop or coaching with Emily – it was life changing.
— Laura Pinto, HR professional
Prior to working with Emily, I struggled with understanding what motivated and made me happy at work. I knew I was good at my job but I also knew I needed a change. My first challenge was whether or not I felt I needed a coach. I thought I would just “figure it out.” Problem was I didn’t know where to look or how to start. That confusion led to frustration and led to me not liking the person I was at times. After my first preliminary call with Emily, I immediately felt I had found my first step.

Going through the process with Emily helps you really understand YOU and really helped me sharpen and articulate what I have done and where I could ultimately take it next. What you quickly realize going through the process is that your skills can be used in countless places that you would have never thought of or even have the confidence to apply to. Moving outside those confines in thinking is game changing!

After several months of working with Emily, I had a much stronger and confident view on where I saw my career going, which led to a new opportunity. Using the tools from our sessions, I was confident enough to pursue the role. Most importantly, I knew it was one that would challenge me but one where I needed and wanted to be. After getting the role, our sessions shifted to focus more on adjusting as well as setting the right expectations for myself. Our work together to get me where I am now was life changing.
— Michael, Finance Professional
After spending nearly two decades at the same organization, I needed help clarifying what I wanted out of my next role and help assessing the skills and strengths that are transferable to other types of organizations. I worked with Emily for less than 10 sessions and the experience was life changing. It helped me make big decisions about what I wanted to do in the next chapter of my career, what I wanted to give up, what I needed, and what wasn’t important. In particular, I now understand what motivates and excites me at work, and how I can use my past experience in a range of different kinds of organizations to be happier and more fulfilled.
— Senior Nonprofit Executive
I came to Pivot after casually job seeking for almost a year. I had participated in other professional development programs, but still struggled to find clarity on what my next career move should be and how to make it happen. My Pivot coaching package met and exceeded my expectations!
The biggest benefit I’ve experienced from working with Emily has been a clear path forward. I found each of the sessions very helpful - some game changing - with information that will help me throughout the rest of my career. I always felt very supported. I’d highly recommend Pivot coaching.
— Jerilyn, Management Consulting Professional
Before I started Pivot coaching, I was struggling to understand my strengths and the types of roles that would be a good fit for me. I also struggled with confidence and self-esteem. Pivot coaching has been life changing for me. My biggest takeaway has been regaining my confidence and relearning to love the things that make me who I am. Emily has been monumentally encouraging and helped reignite my belief in myself that I have something to offer this world. She is super insightful, very responsive and caring, knows her stuff, and meets you wherever you are in the journey of finding out what you want to do with you life!
— Katie Aholt, Nonprofit Professional
Before starting Pivot, I was struggling to find direction in my career. I knew I was good at sales, but didn’t feel motivated to do it anymore and I felt like the industry was the wrong work environment.

I got so much insight out of our sessions. I always knew my high level individual desires and needs, but being able to go deeper into my strengths and what drives me really helped me paint a clearer picture of my future and what I want out of my life. Having Emily as a sounding board for my decision making process has been extremely helpful - she knew when to reference previous sessions and work we’ve done together in order to help me make the best decision at this current stage in my life. I feel confident I’m in the right position now!

If you’re at a cross roads in your life about how to effectively take that next step in your career, Emily is your girl. She’s worth every penny! I have so much more insight and clarity into my life and what will make it meaningful.
— Tayler Corbisiero, Sales Director
Months ago I didn’t know what career path I saw for myself for the future, or how to articulate what I wanted. After four months of Pivot programs, I am so much clearer on where I want to go next and am able communicate what I’m good at. With all of the tools we used, I also know that if I choose to go down another path in the future, I’ll know how to reset and start fresh if needed. I’m constantly telling my friends how life-changing working with Emily has been – she’s had such a huge impact on how I approach my path and career!
— Samantha P. Nonprofit Professional
When I approached Pivot, I was thinking through my next steps and working on how to best position myself in my search. Emily is a great sounding board, coach, cheerleader and taskmaster all in one. She definitely kept me on track and helped me figure out what I was really looking for next. While the cost was a consideration, in the end it was definitely worth it for such a helpful experience. She is definitely someone you want by your side!
— Sam, Political Professional
I came to Emily from a strong personal recommendation. Four months later, I’m happy to report that I’m in a new job that I’m really enjoying and that seems to be a great fit so far. Emily was amazing at helping me identify what makes me happy at work and I was able to determine which potential jobs might contain those qualities, and how to adjust my approach at work in general to increase my happiness. Through my sessions, I gained a huge amount of insight into my motivations and triggers and am now much better able to identify the drivers behind my actions. The self-awareness I gained during my time with Emily has made my daily interactions healthier. I’m able to worry less, be more effective, and be more of a force for positivity.
— David Citron, Technology Professional
I’ve worked with Emily a long time ago, so when it came time to navigating a career pivot again, I reached out. I was in very bad shape - lacking confidence and direction after being let go from a toxic job. Emily is amazing! She helped me process what happened at my last job, and get back on track and coached me through some difficult times. I regained my sense of self and purpose thanks to our work together. And I’m gainfully employed again!
— Sarah D., Digital Strategist
Coaching with Emily is not a one size fits all process – just do the consultation and you’ll quickly see how she can be a great guide, coach, disciplinarian and sounding board. Our conversations have helped me stay on track with my larger life goals. I find myself saying NO without the guilt now, and am more strategic in saying YES. It was the best gift a family member could have given me!
— Meg, Nonprofit Professional
I went to Pivot for some quick support when I was in a job transition and starting up an organization. I was feeling overwhelmed by learning quickly, discerning priorities, and setting boundaries. Emily took me through a systematic way of working through the complex challenge of creating a role for myself that fit my strengths and interests. If you are seriously committing to make the next phase of your career clear & actionable, Emily’s your coach.
— Chelsea Simpson, Social Innovation professional
Before I started working with Emily, I was struggling to find direction in beginning my job search and I needed help formulating a plan to get going. Working with Emily has really expanded my perception of my own strengths, what I need from a future job, and what kinds of careers might be most rewarding. She is a knowledgeable, thoughtful guide who can help you no matter what you’re looking for. Working with her opened my eyes to new professional possibilities and gave me the space to explore those.
— Catherine H. Communications Agency Associate
I went to Pivot knowing I needed to clarify my career direction and get motivated in my job search. Working with Emily was a great investment. She is no nonsense, sets clear expectations, and challenges you to be your best self. The techniques and tools she shared helped me better define what I need to be engaged, productive and fulfilled on the job. As a result, I have a clearer understanding of what my strengths are, how to articulate my skills and experience, and what steps to take to take my career to the next level.
— Nikki N., Nonprofit Professional
When I came to Emily I had been with the same employer for 10+ years. I had become so unhappy and demoralized at my job, that it was beginning to impact my daily performance. I was losing my energy, passion, and ability to focus at work. I had no idea what I wanted to do next, only what I did NOT want to do next.

Within 4 months of my very first session with Emily, I received a job offer that really excited me. It checked all the boxes I was looking for in terms of workplace culture, an opportunity to leverage my skills and do meaningful work that was a transition away from the work I no longer wanted to do, an opportunity for growth and advancement, and a good compensation package.

I’ve regained much of the confidence, joy, and energy that used to be mine. It has been an emotionally transformative experience.
— Beth V., Nonprofit Communications Professional
