FINALIZING YOUR OFFER AND GETTING TO WORK

 

Do You Have These Recurring Questions?

  • Should I remain on the same career path; what am I supposed to do with the rest of my life?

  • How can I develop a job search plan that significantly raises the odds in my favor?

  • What can I do to optimize the use of social media and technology in my job search?

We radically rewrite resumes and cover letters, and design aggressive job search strategies. We also focus on what makes you stand out among other applicants and prepare you for interviews at a level you haven’t experienced.


Can I Afford Coaching?

Who can afford unemployment? You can either look at coaching as a cost to be avoided, or as an investment in your future that will pay dividends for years to come.

Who Benefits from Career Coaching?

Our coaches work with individuals ranging from students questioning their educational path to established professionals.

Am I Ready for Career Transition Coaching?

We’re not for everyone. We work with individuals who are serious about a successful career transition and are motivated to invest time and effort in their future.


For 30 years, I made a career as a system analyst in the auto industry. With the industry in trouble, Nick helped me decide to change directions and look for opportunities in other industries. I was then approached by a consulting firm looking for an individual with an advanced science degree and significant computer expertise for a position in the Washington DC area. This was ideal – a chance to use both my PhD in physics and my extensive experience as a systems analyst! I worked with Nick and Cathy Synko to prepare for my final interview. They were candid, realistic, and responsive. We worked through my presentation, practiced responding to interview questions and fine-tuned numerous details. I found their coaching to be frank and practical. The advice I received was pragmatic. I made the difficult choice and moved to the DC area for a terrific job.

Connecting with Synko Associates was one of the best phone calls I have ever made. Being out of the workforce for some time had left me desperately lacking the confidence I needed to get “back in the game.” Synko Associates helped me identify my strengths and core competencies that I had overlooked or minimized. They cut through all the barriers that I had unknowingly put up and gave focus and direction to not just help me move forward in a career path, but with my life. Meeting with them and going step by step through their unique process has not only given me the confidence I needed to secure a position I could only have dreamed possible – but it also gave me insight into myself that will last a lifetime.

The Synko team stepped in to help our company as operations were being transferred out of state. They understood what works to help clients identify and embrace their strengths. The result of their work was that our employees were quickly prepared, highly-motivated, and highly-focused on finding their next job.

The overall effect of working with Nick and Cathy Synko was to mark a watershed in my life. Career coaching gave me the impetus I needed, the accountabilty (I have stayed in touch with them ever since), the belief that it was possible to find the answers and the courage to persist until I knew the what, the where, and the how. At this time I am finishing up pre-requisites for nursing (and doing exceedingly well in school). I know I made the right decision.

When Nick spoke to the Family Law Section of the Washtenaw County Bar Association, the feedback from our members was universally positive. Nick’s professional expertise is outstanding, and his stories of his client’s career transition success are highly inspirational. Nick is a valuable resource to me and my clients and I highly recommend his services!
