Someone reached out to me and asked for any recommendations I had for a career coach/consultant-type person who could help with the decision to leave law and find a new career.
I didn’t have anyone particular in mind, so I asked people on Instagram if they had any recommendations. Specifically, I asked:
“Someone I know would like to leave the law firm world but isn’t sure what career she’d like to transition into. She asked if I knew of a career counselor-type person who could help her think about what’s next, explore other options, etc.
“If you know of anyone, please let me know! Especially if you’ve worked with them and really like them. Someone who’s worked with attorneys is a bonus but not required. Thanks!”
Here are the answers. Just to emphasize this: I have not worked with any of these people. These are just names people shared with me.
In no particular order, recommended people who can help with job transitions from Instagram:
- Kathryn Saxer Coaching
- Sarah Wagoner Coaching
- Nicole Fredericks Jackson (former attorney)
- Leah Wiseman Fink
- Fink Development – ask for recommendation of coach
Recommended people from other LAW forums I’m a part of (again, no personal knowledge of who these people are, but sharing in case it’s helpful):
- Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans
- Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez
I hope that helps!
