Taking you from the classroom to the boardroom.
I know the pitfalls and potholes and would love to help you on your new career journey.
It’s always easier to find your destination with a map – or to learn from others who have experience. I wish there had been someone with experience around for me to talk to when I was starting my career, or even as I was going through different stages of my career. I have changed careers, changed jobs, been hired and even laid-off – or fired, if that’s what you prefer to call it. Some of it’s fun and some…not so much.
I have worked in corporations of all sizes in addition to being an entrepreneur, so I know a bit more than what you will find in an average college classroom.
My career journey has been so interesting I was inspired to write about it, including two humorous books. “Tales of the Terminated”, my first book, and the follow up, “Adventures in the Discomfort Zone”can both be found on Amazon.
You can see in the picture to the left a few of my success stories. These are three people who are very special to me; each one began their career better prepared than many of their friends. My success is measured by the people I work with, not in numbers or grades. I’m proud to say all of the students I’ve worked with to date have met their personal goals.
Too many ‘experts’ have an education, but no experience. My experience includes four career transitions, working for five major brands, reviewing hundreds of resumes as a hiring manager and personally developing successful job search strategies. This “real world” experience allows me to guide you in ways you can’t get out of a book or from sitting in a comfortable office. That means when your situation doesn’t fit the mold, I can show you how to zig or zag, depending on what you need. And if I don’t have an answer, someone in my network does.
As a Certified Professional Career Coach (CPCC), my job is to assess each person’s needs and determine the best way to help you achieve your career goals. Each person is different and I work to develop a course of action that best suits your particular situation.
Here’s what others are saying about Tami
C. Reinder II
Tami’s been through what most of us working middle-class Americans have been through these last few years. Her gift (one she’s always had) is the unabashed ability to see the humor in it. Though it’s not always been easy, she refuses to let it dampen her spirits. My wife and I have spent many evenings dining (and laughing, and crying) with Tami and her ‘hubby’, feeling each other’s pain, and providing the proverbial shoulder to cry on.

Tami lays it out with simplicity and humor. I highly recommend.
I had not interviewed for a job in more than 15 years. But as things started changing quickly at my office, I knew I had to dust off my resume. Tami did more than shake the dust off it, though. She reworked it, asking great questions along the way, and focusing on accomplishments rather than duties. Along the way, she also gave me great advice about dealing with some layoffs at work. By taking her advice, not only did I earn a promotion, it made my last few months at that company far more pleasant and positive. So essentially, Tami helped me find a new job while improving my standing and transition out of my old one.”
Tami Cannizaro is a great asset in career coaching and how to approach professionals during the job search. She helped me with resume structure, what to look for in the job you want, and small habits to form to boost your career. I would recommend Tami to anyone who was looking for a new job, trying to climb the corporate ladder, or move ahead of their peers.
