Marie Zimenoff knows career services have the power to change lives. She began her professional career as an advisor and recruiter in higher education while completing her M.Ed. in Human Resource Studies and Career & Counseling Development. In 2008—the peak of the Great Recession—Marie left the university to start her business. Inspired by a passion to make a difference in the industry, as CEO of Career Thought Leaders and Resume Writing Academy she trains career professionals around the globe in resume writing, career coaching, and business development. She has delivered hundreds of career and leadership development programs, designed curriculum, and provided staff training in workforce, corrections, university, community college, and business environments.
I work with clients coast-to-coast throughout all facets of career management: from development of resumes and other branded career documents to creation of job-search strategies. Interview, job search, and negotiation coaching comprises a significant part of the work I do. While many of these clients are senior-level executives, I also work with those aspiring to reach the top organizational tiers. Likewise, through my C-level work, I have the opportunity to frequently coach trailing spouses as well as the children of these high-achieving clients as they prepare for college and graduate school admission and ultimately their own careers following completion of undergraduate and graduate studies.
Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in HR/staffing, public relations, and field service management for such companies as Digital Equipment Corporation, John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, and Parker-Hannifin Corporation.
