Marie Zimenoff, CEO

On a mission to change the world through proactive career management, I have worked within corporate, workforce, corrections, university, and private practice settings, tirelessly pursuing the latest strategies and tools to achieve the best client outcomes in each setting.

In my private practice, I take a marketing approach with leaders who struggle to communicate their value and are stalled in their career growth. I speak to audiences nationwide on career topics and host a weekly radio show, The Career Confidante, to share career management, branding, job search, resume development, social media, and leadership expertise with professionals worldwide.

One cannot change the world single-handedly, so I am dedicated to developing career service providers, partnering with state and national associations, training workforce and university career staff on site, and designing programs as CEO of Career Thought Leaders Consortium and Resume Writing Academy.

  • Master of Education, Human Resource Studies, Counseling & Career Development
  • Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC)
  • Master Resume Writer (MRW)
  • Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC)
  • Master Brand Strategist & Reach Certified Personal Branding Strategist (CPBS)
