Meet Maureen Farmer, Executive Career Coaching - Word Right Career

Meet Maureen Farmer, CCMC, CRS, CCS, CHRP

I love helping people land the career of their dreams; or even a career they never dared to dream.

I’m incredibly process-driven. I’ve synthesized everything I’ve learned from 25 years of executive career coaching, executive resume writing, professional education, two degrees, two certificates and three certifications into an award-winning process that is effective, but even more importantly, is also completely customized to you.

Transitioning your career is hard. You don’t set sail for Ireland without a map, and you can’t land a new career without a plan. I’ve known many people who wasted valuable time searching job boards, ignoring the hidden job market and relying on outdated tactics hoping to get a call that never came.
