Devoting that amount of time to a career that brings you challenge, growth and fulfillment is critical to your life happiness quotient.

She has gone with the tide of new firm strategies as new CEO’s took the helm.
She has moved twice and traveled to global assignments. She has survived multiple downsizings. She discovered her love for coaching during a very difficult time when her firm out-counseled over 1000 employees due to the economy. She led a Global Alumni program that created an exit program for alumni who were being displaced. It was an emotionally charged time. She listened to so many heart rendering stories, doubts, fears, anger. Feeling understood and capitalizing on their strengths helped many to refocus on getting job ready once again. Next, was a bias towards action with writing resumes, headhunter contacts, networking and interview skills. Katie says of her experience “I feel honored to have worked with so many who have gone on to even greater success in their careers”. Her career has included several global leadership roles (Chief Learning Officer and Global Alumni Director) managing 25+ staff, reporting directly to CEO’s, being accountable for budgets in excess of $20 million and has traveled to 40 countries.

Finding the right job can be exciting, and sometimes very exasperating as well. I know, because “I’ve been there, done that”.
I was lost in my career and I jumped around from one job to another in a variety of fields, trying to find something that satisfied me. I know my parents were worried. Other people kept asking me what I wanted to do, but I couldn’t answer them. I didn’t know!
As I moved from job to job, I felt like all I was doing was identifying what I didn’t want to do instead of what I did want. It was all very frustrating.
Somewhere along the way, it dawned on me that I probably wasn’t the only one trying to find a fulfilling career. Others were undoubtedly experiencing the same thing. That’s when it hit me! This is what I wanted to do! I wanted to help others avoid the struggle I was going through, especially young adults who were going through a career transition. I wanted to be a Career Coach.
It took a few years, but I finally became a certified coach through the Coaches Training Institute. And I love it! I’ve found my passion.
In 2002, I established HallieCrawford.com and since then, my practice has grown by leaps and bounds. This validated what I knew all along – that others were seeking to find that ideal job, that perfect career, that rewarding profession.
I live in Atlanta, Georgia, with my son Vaughn. When I’m not helping clients in their career search, I’m out horseback riding or traveling.

How a Professional Career Coach Can Help Boost Your Career
In the professional world, with the lack of formal mentoring programs in place at many organizations, business professionals can feel they do not receive the support they need to move forward in their careers. While it’s thrilling to make it to the next level in your profession, the process of achieving professional goals or implementing any kind of career change can be difficult and stressful even for the most seasoned worker. Getting to the next level in your career can feel overwhelming. During those stressful times a support system is critical. When it comes to boosting your career, having a professional career coach at your side can be a key element to your support system. A professional career coach can make the difference between achieving your career goals or falling short of them. With career coaches playing such an important role in career development, it’s surprising yet understandable that many business professionals and executives don’t know the benefits of having a career coach because too many people don’t have a coach personally or through their organization. If you don’t have access to a coach through your company, it’s important to invest in yourself and your career on your own if you can. Here are a few of the ways a career coach can help you boost your career.
