How I Got Started
Twenty years ago I (Vicki Lind) began offering career transition and job search services in Portland. After several years I amassed an abundance of kind, stellar reviews on Yelp and Google. As a result, a broad range of people started calling me-- from creatives and educators to technical innovators and executives. I realized that some of these clients' needs could be met best by other career specialists with deep and focused expertise. Therefore, I developed a model that allows you to select a professional who best matches your career needs, style, values, schedule, and budget. I set out to build an exceptional team.
