About Me

As a former investment banker from Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse, now a Career Coach, I bring 15+ years of Wall Street experience into play for my financial services clients. As a career coach for mid to senior-level professionals, I am known for helping my clients land jobs faster.

My proven career coach system yields results. When you work with me, you’ll learn to bypass the online abyss, skip the job board circus, and put your focus, energy and resources to play at top speed.

I’m committed to supporting clients gain stability, increase confidence, and land a job they love. I enable my clients to step up into a new title, to level up into a higher compensation tier, and to earn what they deserve while pursuing a long term, stable career.

When you work with me, your personal career coach, you access my wisdom, strategy, support, and guidance - directly. No middleman. I work 1:1 with all my clients.

I work with every type of job seeker, from Wall Street and Fortune 500 companies to startups.

My clients come from Google, Goldman Sachs, Amazon, JP Morgan, Verizon, PayPal, MasterCard, Fidelity, and a host of smaller firms.

Together, we build a strategic customized career plan. We focus on career direction resume, LinkedIn Profile, networking, interview preparation, and so much more. I leverage my personal network, 16,000 LinkedIn 1st connections, and 10+ million LinkedIn 2nd connections to get clients access to the hidden job market.

I have walked in your shoes. I rose through the ranks of Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse with a salary in the top 5%. When I was laid off due to a severe recession in 2007, I was devastated. I picked myself up, transformed my anxiety and anger into action, and landed a new position quickly. From that point on, I dedicated my life to make sure that no high performing professionals would be left as I was - without support, without a plan, and without an identity.

You are more than your resume. You are more than your experience - leverage both to level up.

Customized Plan

Feeling secure about your job search is all about having a concrete and actionable plan. I will provide you with the clarity on your career direction based on my expertise of having led hundreds of clients into well-fitting, long-lasting careers. I will also design a customized 5 to 7 step plan based on your unique skills, target industry, previous experience and future goals and be with you every step of the way as you turn this plan into success.

Process of Application

Once you get into the right direction and have a plan in place, we will then work on the process of application. This involves crafting your resume specific to your career direction, rather than pumping it up with keywords, so that it immediately clicks with your target employer and at the same time reflects who you truly are (and makes you feel proud about it!). Secondly, I will optimize your LinkedIn profile to make it come alive and be easily searchable for your target organizations.

Interviews – Informational and Formal

My unique expertise lies in helping you land informational interviews based on my extensive network of high-level contacts across organizations so that you gain a key advocate on the inside. I also not only help you prepare for these informational interviews but also for formal interviews so that you develop the skill to connect with each of your interviewers in an atmosphere of dialogue and engagement based on your personal history.

My Clients

My Clients

David Robles

Mike helped me land my dream job with Google!

After 23 years with the same company, I needed a change but didn’t know where to start. Mike helped me explore other careers by setting up coffee chats with friendly professionals.  We then analyzed those conversations to understand what really appealed to me.  From there, we recreated my resume and my LinkedIn profile to best promote my value and experience.  His patient guidance helped build my confidence, throughout the rest of the process.

Terri Harris

Michael is a master at interview preparation and helped me pivot from SunTrust to Navy Federal Credit Union with more responsibility.

He showed me how to customize my answers to typical and non-typical questions given the company personnel with whom I was speaking. He taught me that some interview questions have hidden questions. He taught me appropriate answers. He pumped me up and showed me how to dialogue with the interviewer.

Marshall Burroughs

Within 2 months of working with Mike, I moved from Wall Street to Salesforce. If you need to pivot, he is your guy.

I was a very successful sales trader for 20 years. However, the landscape of Wall Street had changed, and my next move was probably not going to be the same role since fewer and fewer exist. Mike and I worked on identifying all the different types of possible jobs and industries I would fit.

Hiten Rawal

Mike helped me get to the greatest company in the world, Amazon (AWS)! Mike helps you figure out your career direction so you save time.

I knew I wanted to network with professionals that had certain technical certifications. Speaking to these professionals at the right firms would help inform my job search. Mike arranged coffee chats. Mike saves you time, a commodity sometimes more valuable than money.
