In a mid-career rut? Ready to pivot? I know that feeling.
Overwhelmed by your resume? I’ve been there, too!
The good news is, you’re not alone and I can help.

What I Do

“My job’s…OK. But, there’s no room for growth here, so I feel stuck.”

“I haven’t written a résumé in years. I don’t know where to start. I’m overwhelmed.”

Does this sound familiar?

I’ve been there. I can help.

Hi! I’m Monica Fochtman. I am a career coach and resume writer. I help mid-career job seekers and industry-changers get unstuck and reclaim their confidence so they can love work again.

I care about you and want you to be your best. I’m known for my compassionate honesty- asking heartfelt, yet direct questions that help you see things differently. Together, we’ll create effective job search strategies, modern application materials, and memorable interview answers that get results.

In addition to coaching and writing, I’m also a Certified Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) administrator and consultant. Since 2004, I have conducted leadership development workshops to help people learn more about themselves so they become stronger leaders and better teammates.

I love teaching people how to challenge the status quo and build processes that make teams and organizations more humane and efficient.
