Hook The Talent
My Story

After spending 12 years in the technology sector, I made a career change into higher education by way of educational publishing and the non-profit sector.  Once in higher ed, I began career counseling working professionals who had returned to school for a bachelor's or a master's degree as part of a career change.

During my time on a university campus, I realized the majority of professional students were graduating unprepared, hugely in debt and still no closer to a new career than when they had started.  Why?  Because they were choosing the academic program before they knew what they wanted to do for a career.    

Thus was born, Hook The Talent, a business focused on those back-to-school adults who are considering an advanced degree as a means for launching into a new career.  It is my addiction to learning that makes me an advocate of education with the mantra:  The right education for the right reason. 

As an action-oriented coach, I want to help you wrap your ideas, motivations, and values into your next career which I'll do with an energy that is often described as "infectious."  

If you click on the LinkedIn button on this page, you can view my professional background, education, and certifications, i.e., the boring stuff.  For the good stuff, check out www.WritingsByRosemary.com.  A funny, enlightening, and sometimes heartbreaking blog about my current journey in life.

So that's my story.  I'd love to hear yours.
