Tom Ballantyne, M.A.

I'm a professional career counselor and coach. Whether you're a new graduate, launching your career, transitioning in mid-career or hoping to reinvent yourself for a new career, I'll work with you, step by step, to clarify your values and your goals, to plan your journey and to overcome the obstacles in your way. It’s a lot to sort out, so why go it alone?

I have a Masters degree in Counseling with a specialization in career development and health psychology from Santa Clara University and a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from San Francisco State University.

Prior to career consulting and coaching, I recruited top talent for Fortune 1000 companies, start-ups and non-profits as a retained search consultant. I've seen the hiring process the inside and can help my clients make their career transitions with greater confidence.

Specialties: Career and transition coaching. Job search skills training, formal and informal assessment, resume creation, job search strategy development, offer evaluation and salary negotiation. Power networking, communication skills training, and how to use social media the right way.
