MEET THE COACH Learn More about Accomplished Career Coach Stacy Harshman Working as a recruiter for a large Fortune 500 corporation and a major nonprofit organization, I conducted hundreds of interviews with candidates. Few, if any, really understood what fulfilled them, and many seemed to fall into a career by accident. I realized that I was also falling in the trap of doing something that was no longer meaningful to me. Then, I experienced the power of coaching, and my life changed. Hiring my own coach, I discovered that my passion was to help others in their search for fulfilling, meaningful work. I followed through on my passion and trained to be a coach through the Coach For Life organization. Then, I received my certification in Career Management from the Career Coach Academy. In addition to helping people discover their passion, I also give clients insight into the mind of a recruiter, unlocking the secrets of what employers look for in potential employees. I know what recruiters look for in resumes, what answers they like to hear in interviews, and what follow-up they like to see. Involvement in two worlds, human resources and coaching, gives me a unique qualification to be a career coach. I am a senior certified professional (SHRM-SCP) through the Society of Human Resource Management, the most respected HR organization in the world. My master’s degree is in business management from Colorado State University, and my bachelor’s degree is in business administration from Northwest Nazarene University. When I was 12 years old, my grandmother introduced me to the joys of international travel. I have followed her legacy and have continued to travel to new and exotic places from Morocco to Botswana. In the summer, I perform water activities, such as swimming, snorkeling, and jet skiing. In the winter, my passion sport is snowshoeing.
