Interview and Career Coach - Mary Despe
𝑬𝑿𝑷𝑬𝑹𝑻𝑰𝑺𝑬: As an experienced Career and Interview Coach, I help mid-to-senior level professionals who feel unrecognized and undervalued in their role develop a tailored strategy to attract and succeed in landing their desired position. I’m qualified in DISC Personality Assessments, which enables me to delve deep into my clients’ true authentic selves and provide insights so that they can plan their career more successfully.
Mary Despe - Certified Diversity Sourcing Professional (CDSP)
With nearly 20 years as a recruiter, I’ve seen the hiring process from both the candidate & hiring manager sides of the table. Hence, I’m able to bring a unique, ‘insider’s perspective to working professionals who come to me for guidance in advancing their careers.
Services I Offer:
𝑪𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒓 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑰𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒗𝒊𝒆𝒘 𝑨𝒅𝒗𝒊𝒔𝒐𝒓𝒚: success tips for the next level
𝑲𝒆𝒚𝒏𝒐𝒕𝒆 𝑺𝒑𝒆𝒂𝒌𝒆𝒓: career advancement & visibility strategies
𝑾𝒐𝒓𝒌𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒑 𝑭𝒂𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒐𝒓: applying job search techniques
𝑴𝒆𝒅𝒊𝒂 𝑺𝒑𝒐𝒌𝒆𝒔𝒘𝒐𝒎𝒂𝒏: hybrid & future of work
I am an expert who has helped global professional services firms and tech companies build high-performing teams.
Prior to becoming a career coach, I worked as an HR Business Analyst. I realized it wasn’t what I was passionate about, so transitioned to a more fulfilling career path.
