Meet Ginger Korljan

GingerMediumI have been interested in the career field since high school, when my favorite section of the newspaper was the classified section! Even as a young person, I loved asking people about their jobs and why they chose them. Every time I applied for a job, I went all-out to get it, and usually received an offer.

As a struggling math major in college, I visited the college career planning and placement office and took the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory. While going over the results with the career counselor which indicated my strong interest in a helping profession, I said, “I want to do what you do.” That day I changed my major to Psychology and decided to become a career counselor.

A required 4-year stint in the Army to meet the requirements of an ROTC scholarship further cemented my desire to pursue career counseling as many people I encountered complained constantly about their jobs, but rarely did anything about it. I would ask them, “If you are so discontented, why don’t you find a job you would enjoy?” After completing military service, I entered graduate school, and in addition to receiving a Master of Counselor Education, completed an intensive internship with college career planning and placement office. I started a job search support group, administered career tests, conducted videotaped mock interviews, wrote résumés, and contributed to a monthly newsletter.

Since then, I have worked with hundreds of people, helping them every step of the way to pursue and obtain fulfilling jobs. Although I can write excellent résumés, I prefer to tackle the entire job selection and search process as a partner with my client. Here are some of my key strengths:

  • Self-Assessment and Career Selection
  • Skill, Interest, and Value Identification
  • Job Market Research and Occupational Outlook
  • Marketing Plan Development
  • Informational Interviewing
  • Networking Strategies
  • Résumé and Cover Letter Writing
  • Internet Job Search Research
  • Online Job Search Techniques
  • Interviewing Preparation and Salary Negotiation

I work with all my clients individually, and consider your job search to also be my own. I will apply the same proven strategies that have worked for me and my clients throughout the years. If you choose to work with me, you will have a partner totally committed to your success.
