What We Offer You

Career Clarity

Career Design has helped thousands change careers over the last forty years.
Change is hard. And doing it alone is even harder.  Our Career Clarity Program was carefully crafted to support you in determining what career path is right for you while providing the necessary support and resources to take action towards change.

Career Launch

Starting strong knowing your strengths and exploring the paths that will set you up for success is so important.  Our Career Launch program offers tools and resources to make decisions early in the process.  It is designed to help high school and college students as well as recent grads.

Brand Your Genius

One of the most common mistakes we see is people marketing WHAT they do, instead of WHO they are.  Whether it is a resume, Linkedin profile and/or an authentic narrative, we help you get prepared to tell the world what your super power is and how you can bring value to an organization.

Hello

I’m Hollis

Whether you’re looking for your first job or fifteenth, I am here to help you find your sweet spot in the workplace… the place where you thrive!

My goal is to help you articulate who you are, what you want, and your unique value so you can confidently connect with the RIGHT careers and companies. When you become the CEO of your career, you will be able to find roles where your time, talents, and values are in alignment. I love helping students navigate college choices, new grads enter the workforce, and everyone prepare for a job search. 

Let’s  find “your thing”, package it up, and land your ideal role!
 

Hello

I’m Heather

It hurts my heart to hear people say that they are stuck, de-valued, or don’t even know what they want to do next or “when they grow up.”

I have always been passionate about the why. I used to only apply this to companies and brands but now I apply this to people. I help individuals (companies/organizations) translate their unique combination of talents into a fulfilling career or an inspiring school strategy. I work with clients of all ages, from students to seasoned professionals. I especially love supporting clients with anxiety and other unique considerations.

We all have a story and I want to hear yours. 

"I tend to over think EVERY THING…so much so I get stuck! This program helped with what I feel has been so big and helpful for me- career clarity…. There was so much personal growth with all the information that Hollis and Heather provided. All it requires from you is to be ready and willing to work on yourself and start believing that you are worth the investment!"

When I first made contact with Career Design I was very low and uncertain about my career prospects. My actual career had bottomed out, I had become a full-time stay-at-home mom, and I had come from a family that gave a few definitive career-oriented messages: become educated for a job that will guarantee income, stay in that job, have one job for your whole life, and creative endeavors can only be considered hobbies. Until I invested in your curriculum, I did not understand how entrenched these ideas were for me and how thoroughly they were hindering my ability to envision a different future. Thank you for this service you provide.

I cannot say enough AMAZING things about Career Design. In fact, I don't think words can express how grateful I am for this company & the people who truly helped me find direction, purpose, and confidence. This was one of the most impactful and life-changing (in the best way) experience I have ever been through. If you are questions whether Career Design is right for you or whether you should do it, don't! The answer is so simple, absolutely do it - you will NOT regret it and you get to work with some of the most amazing people ever who truly want to help you find your career goals and reach them!

Career Design has been an amazing and valuable resource for me. I was stuck in the wrong job and I was unsure of where to go next or what to do next. I would recommend Heather and Hollis' at Career Design to anyone either stuck, unsure or just want a new career start. They helped me every step of the way between linked in, resume and where to look.

Career Design saved me when I was in the thick of a very long, challenging, and unexpected job search. I was checking all the boxes, but something was missing to land my next job. I am SOO fortunate to have found the team at Career Design to give me hope and the direction I so needed.

Career Design has been an extremely valuable resource for me and I would recommend Heather and Hollis' service to anyone that is stuck in a job they don't like but don't know where to go next. I was affected by a COVID layoff and had no idea where to go next, that is until I worked with Career Design. Throughout my time working with Heather and Hollis, I was able to understand what it is I wanted from my next career and the confidence to go out and find it. They gave me the tools to talk about my experiences in a contextually productive manner and helped align them to new opportunities. If you are struggling with how to find a new career that is right for you, I would highly suggest giving Heather and Hollis a call.
