When you realize that your job is no longer making you happy, sometimes the answer isn’t to stick it out or try harder. The answer could simply be to get out.
But, how? Career transition is far easier and quicker when you get support.
Our coaches will help you clarify what you want to achieve; identify solutions, tactics, and strategies for selecting an ideal career target; and build you a bridge to help you get there.
Our coaches are nurturing, powerful listeners and artful communicators who will hear both what you are saying and what you are not saying, to help you paint the picture of not only what you want to do, but what you never want to do again. (That’s almost just as important.)
Via a blend of inquiry and assessment, we’ll invent a personalized blueprint that can help you uncover limiting beliefs (thoughts that are preventing success), shift your mindset, and clarify your career direction. TALK TO US

As Chief Executive Officer of The Career Strategy Group, a boutique career management and outplacement firm headquartered in Bethesda, MD, Laura and her team teach a powerful methodology for career, communication and networking success.
Experience and Expertise
With national job search expertise as an award-winning career innovator and resume writer, combined with human resources experience inside Fortune 500 companies including The Walt Disney Company and America Online, Laura M. Labovich is often affectionately referred to in the media as “a job seeker’s best friend.”
Laura’s national job search and networking expertise, passionate delivery, and easy-to-implement approach has garnered attention from such national news media as The Washington Post, Sirius XM Radio, Fox 5 (DC), NBC 6 (Miami), U.S. News and World Report, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Yahoo, and Monster.com, to name a few. And, as a former amateur nightclub singer, she certainly knows how to tackle, inspire, and entertain a tough crowd.
Laura is in the top 1% of all Amazon authors for her book, 100 Conversations for Career Success: Learn to Network, Cold-Call and Tweet Your Way to Your Dream Job, a 2013 top career book selection by FORBES.com. Laura recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program along with 40 hard-working business owners in the Washington DC and Baltimore area.
Laura can often be found reading a thriller on her Kindle, planting vegetables in her garden, or planning her next European family vacation with her husband and two incredible children.
Vital to The Career Strategy Group’s leadership team is the skill and talent of our Operations Manager, Michelle Glick. Michelle spearheads The Career Strategy Group’s corporate outplacement program, implements and enhances client satisfaction processes, and directs payroll and benefits.
As an organizational efficiency expert, technology guru, and customer-service devotee, she ensures the seamless delivery of our resume writing and outplacement projects.
With a master’s degree in special education, Michelle began her career as an elementary school teacher with special education kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students. Post teaching, Michelle earned a reputation as the go-to person for all things organization, and was recruited as an administrative assistant at ChanTest, a biotechnology company that manufactures cell lines. In her role, she became respected for whipping the office into shape. (A trait she still wholeheartedly uses here at The Career Strategy Group!) While at ChanTest she went on to execute training programs, manage executive schedules, and run the office in full. After ChanTest relocated to Cleveland, Michelle transitioned to her management position at The Career Strategy Group (fortunately for us).
When Michelle is not working, she can be found reading a book about time travel, baking, spending time with her family, or organizing somebody’s junk drawer!
