UK Career Development is pleased to offer one-on-one counseling and special events for University of Kentucky staff.

UK Career Development has reintroduced free consultations for UK staff with its One-to-One Career Focus Coaching series. We've set aside a limited number of priority coaching sessions for new UK Career Development clients (UK staff only). 

The concept is simple: UK career coach Diane Kohler will meet with you, confidentially, to discuss your career goals. From the application process through interviewing, we can offer personalized advice and a proven track record of helping UK employees just like you.

As an article from Kiplinger recently pointed out, many professionals are paying up to $150 an hour for professional career guidance. UK employees now have access to similar services, absolutely free!


One UK employee had this to say about Diane's career counseling:

"When I went to see Diane for some advice about a job I hoped to apply for, I didn't know what to expect. I had read and re-read the job application, and I had worked on my resume recently enough to feel pretty good about it.

Only 5 minutes into the counseling session, Diane was bringing to light some nuanced details from within the job posting that I had not considered. She helped me re-frame my entire approach to that job application based on the way she was able to read between the lines. This in turn helped me focus my efforts when filling out the lengthy application.

Her advice regarding my resume was also spot on. I had some outdated styling and format issues as well as too much verbiage. She helpfully worked with me, using concrete examples, to do some on-the-spot transformations. I'm now proud of my resume and my job application and have a new set of tools for competing in the job market!"
