About Eliot

After a notable career as a magazine editor (GQ relaunch, Philadelphia Magazine Editor in Chief) and then VP of Talent Acquisition at Hearst (18 years hiring the company's editorial leaders) I am now offering exclusive career coaching services. 

I know what you need to get the job you want, because I come from the hiring side. I've interviewed and evaluated more than 5,000 candidates. I provide unvarnished, actionable advice on what works and doesn't, not only in the job-hunting process but also along your advancement path. 

I offer:

  • Resume and cover letter polishing

  • Little-known interview hits and misses

  • Tricks to surface to the top in an the online application environment

  • Guidance on imaginative vs. inefficient networking

  • Curated outreach

  • Salary negotiation consultation

Most importantly, I'll help you identify what you really want in a career and what you need to do to get it.

I'm available for clients of all experience levels but specialize in those in their twenties, recent college graduates hunting for their first job or, after an unsatisfying job or two, transitioning and unsure how to start.
