Our philosophy is that every client is in charge of their career and budget and will decide how much support they need. All coaching services are billed at an hourly rate or via packages because one size does not fit all.
We may only get to work with you for an hour or two to polish your resume or online profile, or we may work together for several weeks or months while you go through your entire job search cycle.
All prospective clients will receive a 30-minute phone consultation at no charge to determine your goals, make sure you are happy with our approach, and answer any questions about the process. It’s important to be sure that we can work together and you are comfortable with the coaching philosophy.
Please contact us so that we can give you information about your situation.

KDB Coaching uses an online coaching portal for all clients. The portal houses your coaching curriculum, training notes, assessment access and reports, action items, and any messaging that may be pertinent to our time together.
We believe that the online tool gives us an edge against the competition because if we can make coaching easy and engaging from the beginning, you are going to get more out of it.
All coaching sessions are by appointment only and coaching sessions will be held via telephone or video conferencing.
While distance coaching is not ideal for all clients and situations, this strategy allows us to offer more evening and weekend appointments and keep our overhead down. More and more, companies are using video interviews early in the hiring cycle, so if you are not comfortable with video chat, using your coaching sessions to get used to that communication mode is a great way to prepare for video, Skype, and other distance interviewing techniques.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment you will be charged a reduced rate for the missed appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late to a call it will be treated as a no-show and billed accordingly.
The success of any career coaching relationship is dependent on your participation and open feedback. Ultimately, it is up to you to do the work and use the concepts, suggestions, information, articles, tip sheets and documentation that you receive from KDB Coaching to support your job search and career transition goals. The goal of any resume writing or social media profile development is to have the final product be a true and honest representation of your background, skills, and qualifications. You are hiring KDB Coaching to represent you and all finished products should have your input and sign off.
