The birth of STLJobCoach!

After going through the process of building a blog and turning it into my first website, I have finally decided to build another blog focused on searching for jobs in the St. Louis area.

When I meet people for the first time, I often tell them I have four jobs: my day job, and then all my other part-time jobs that I don't get paid for! I maintain the website for http://www.stlslam.com, food blogger at http://www.stlcheesegirl, and then help people find jobs. 

With the job market still dragging its feet, I am busier than ever e-mailing and forwarding job postings and lately, I have been getting a lot of referrals from friends who know someone who needs help finding a job. I have done several in-person one-on-one coaching sessions as well as advise people via e-mail, in addition to all the connections I have made with IT recruiters and on LinkedIn.

I figured it was about time to consolidate all this information on one website.

While I still plan on sending out MANY e-mails, I am hoping to use this site as a place where job hunters and recruiters can come together. I also plan to post a lot of the information that I constantly am sharing...such as my big three steps to starting your job search.

Best of luck to everyone out there searching for a job!
