The Team

Patty Rusin

Hi, I’m Patty, a Career Specialist & Job Search Coach with over 25 years of experience in HR, helping businesses grow by developing career goals and paths for their team members, helping individuals pivot and relaunch their careers, and assisting a company with positioning to become one of Crain’s 100 Best Places to Work in Chicago 2019 & 2020 by implementing an employee appreciation program and initiating an e-learning platform to provide independent career development coursework. I believe there’s nothing more important to an organization’s success than its people.

Today I am focused on helping individuals get a clear sense of what makes them unique and leveraging their strengths to create a powerful new career path. I really care. I want to get to know you, explore what motivates you, understand what makes you tick. Together we will identify obstacles, brainstorm solutions, and celebrate victories.  I want everyone to enjoy careers that are meaningful and fulfilling.

I have sat on the other side of the interview table, reviewed hundreds of both good and inadequate resumes, performed candidate searches, worked with recruiters and am here to guide you to put your best foot forward.
