I write custom content career tips for The Washington Post Jobs section. My story on Seven Things To Never Say During a Job Interview was The Washington Post’s top reader favorite for 2017. Career tips articles include how to receive feedback from your boss, how to move into stretch roles and how to decline a job offer. I also write B2B career content for companies hiring workers. These stories include how to establish excellent employee training and development, how to create an amazing experience for job candidates and what’s going through job applicants’ minds during the interview. I enjoy helping both job seekers and businesses make the best decisions and make a good career match.
