Phaedra Brotherton, JCTC, CPRW, CDF
Certified Job and Career Transition Coach and Certified Professional Resume Writer

Welcome! As the principal of Resumes and Career Strategies, I partner with mid-career and executive association and nonprofit  professionals to develop the tools and strategies they need to create fulfilling careers. 
My credentials:  I'm  a certified job and career transition coach (JCTC)  and a certified professional resume writer (CPRW) with in-depth training in modern job search coaching techniques and career development facilitation. 

Before becoming a career transition and job search consultant and coach, I worked for several years in nonprofit and association space in publishing, marketing, and fundraising communications. There were many times I felt stuck in an unfulfilling job or in a crazy work environment that undermined my confidence and prevented me from making the contribution I wanted to make. Fortunately, I learned how to figure out what career satisfaction meant to me and was able to proactively and strategically make several career pivots and job changes to land more satisfying work.

I absolutely love the variety in the nonprofit space and throughout my 20+ year nonprofit communications career enjoyed working for a major university, a leading human services charitable nonprofit, a food-industry trade association, and professional societies in the medical and human resources industries.

I've been honored to help several executives make satisfying transitions and have written and presented on career transition and job search topics for ASAE's Association Headquarters.  I was also recently honored to have a career change resume I wrote for an executive looking to move into more mission-driven work featured in the latest edition of Resumes for Dummies.

My articles on careers, the job search, and employment topics have been published by national magazines, including Working Mother, Black Enterprise, the Washingtonian, Executive Update, T+D Magazine,  and HRMagazine
To make sure I'm up to date on the latest and greatest employment trends and career transition best practices, I hold memberships in the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches, the National Career Development  Association, and Career Directors International.
