Simply speaking our mission is to make our clients’ lives easier—specifically, that aspect of their lives that has to do with their career, work related issues and their job search. We provide personalized, clearly needed, very specific services to a select client base of individuals at three different stages in their career—executives at senior levels, professionals at mid-career levels, and those just beginning to think about their future career.
Committed to ensuring our clients get the advice and services they need when they need it, we will provide our services on a very timely basis at reasonable fees. The services we provide will save you from wasting time, money and energy and give you a competitive edge.
If you’re an executive, by creating effective marketing materials, an executive resume and job search strategies, we will shorten your search and save you from spending money on expensive services. If you’re in a work situation where you’re concerned about what’s happening, we can help you take the right steps. If you are a parent concerned about your child or a young person confused about what college major or career to pursue, or you are stuck not knowing how to find your first job, we can help you get on the right track.

Nancy is an amazing counselor, H/R professional, and career coach. I have used her in all three capacities. Her career counseling helped me land my VP-level job. She worked as my new company’s head of HR and made seminal changes to increase employee satisfaction and retention. And I sent a young, underprivileged young woman to her to successfully learn how to come out of her shell, win a job interview, and get her first job ever in the workplace. Nancy is a gem with her depth of experience, sharp expertise, and lovely personality.
I have been working with Nancy for 15 years. She is an outstanding executive career coach and mentor and I have recommended her to many friends and colleagues. She is smart, personable, and has deep experience in business and career development. She can quickly size up a situation and come up with the right advice. While she is warm and inspirational, she is very direct and won’t let you get off track. She is the real deal and I give her my highest recommendation.
Nancy is a person of integrity having deep and detailed knowledge of effective strategies for career transition. Nancy’s help and advice was instrumental for developing effective marketing materials and also to land new job opportunities or consulting assignments using best in class practices. I recommend Nancy to anyone needing expert and professional guidance to navigate career transition and land their next career opportunity.
Smart … fun … and brilliant at her work. Nancy Hutter manages to combine big vision with sharp execution, business savvy with warmth and empathy, and an amazing energy level with always having time for people. She has made me better for knowing her.
Nancy is a valuable contact and friend and has assisted me more than once in career matters. Her advice and help was always spot on, and I attribute much of my success in landing new and fulfilling job opportunities to her skilled guidance. She is always fair and professional.
Before I started meeting with Nancy, I was clueless to what major to pursue and what I wanted to do with my life. I’ve changed majors several times. Nancy helped me get to know my likes and dislikes and my personality. I learned I’m better suited toward technology and business. I’m happy to say I finally found my major. I can’t wait to see what the future brings and I’m very grateful to Nancy for all her help.
