I am writing you today because I want you to share in my excitement - I received and accepted a new job!! Thanks to your review of my resume I have finally found a position that is both what I want to do and paying what I think is fair and more than acceptable! The interviewer said she remembered my insightful questions and my resume stood out from all the rest.
You helped me to get over my fear of the what ifs - what if a new job is just more of the same.? What if I fail? What if i can't get a new job? What if I'm stuck in this low paying unrealistic position? I'm just so thankful for all of your help and support!
-Colleen Motley, Gleaners Community Food Bank, Grants Writer.
Your session on salary negotiation at the AFP National Fundraising Conference in San Francisco was the most important, useful session I attended the whole conference. I've never negotiated salary before because I just didn't know how. You provided clear techniques and research tools, and gave a lot of great advice.
I recently accepted a position at a new employer. I applied a lot of what I learned in your session before and during negotiation. It was so helpful in determining the fairness of their offer and making sure I got what I deserved. I'm really happy with the compensation package I received and I'm so excited for the new opportunity! Thank you and keep up the good work! I'll be pointing a lot of my colleagues to your resources for sure!
"After one of Mazarine's sessions, you seriously feel invincible! Armed with Mazarine's insight into salary negotiation, I honestly started getting worried when it was three hours after the session had ended and I still had the biggest, stupidest smile that you can possibly imagine.
Mazarine was like a spirit guide; she provided the foundation of knowledge, and then urged us to ask ourselves questions. How can use it? Have we done something like this before? What have others done that has worked?"
-Andrea Edelman, San Mateo, CA

Did you ever have a workplace that just didn't seem to care about promoting you?
Have you ever wanted to have more people help you move up in your career?
Well, me too. When I worked full time at small nonprofits, it was difficult to get ahead. There was always a crisis, always a reason to run around, and never any time to think of professional development.
I looked around and I had no idea what to do to get a new, better, fantastic job. I started researching how people got their nonprofit jobs. I put together two career fairs. I talked with booth vendors. I talked with fair attendees. I put together a nonprofit job club. I got speakers who were executive directors, chief development officers, consultants, and founders.
People started to come to me to have me help them with their cover letters, their resumes, their interviews, and more. Suddenly I had success stories. I wrote a book about nonprofit careers, called "Get the Job! Your Fundraising Career Empowerment Guide"
Since 2015 I've created 3 Fundraising Career Conferences and 2 Nonprofit Leadership Summits to help people find the best workplace and nonprofit career path.
I want to help you get the job of your dreams.
Whether you dream of being an executive director, development director, chief development officer, or simply dream of working in a workplace where everyone respects fundraising and helps to fundraise, I would like to help you get there.
You can read about best practices online. And sure, you can learn about cover letters and resumes, but what about truly finding your path? How about practicing your salary negotiation skills and interview questions? What about making a resume and cover letter that TRULY stands out? That's what we could work on together.
Isn't it time for you to rise?

After your teaching about salary negotiation, I landed my new job and convinced myself to ask for a salary that was in the right range. And I got $5,000 MORE than I asked for. I had 2 competing offers and I had done all the research and pumped myself FULL of great self-confidence boosting messages and affirmations and it was amazing. I am happy and employed and more confident than ever. I found my voice! THANK YOU.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nonprofit Career Coaching
Q: What do I get out of this?
A: With the first three finding your center sessions, you will get a clearer sense of direction in your job search. You'll also find a deeper understanding of what satisfies you at work.
During the three finding your place sessions, we'll focus on getting you self sufficient in creating stellar resumes and cover letters. We'll also do interview prep and practice so you'll be set up to succeed.
In the last 3 finding your value sessions, you'll learn a better way to phrase and ask for what you want, and concrete tactics to get you paid what you deserve.
You can choose a single package of 3 sessions, 6 sessions, or the full 9 session package depending on what you feel you need right now.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Each session takes about an hour, we might run over a little bit. I'll also be working behind the scenes when our session is not going on. For example, with the resume and cover letter sessions, I will be editing your resume and cover letter, and then our session together will be explaining the edits and how you can do it yourself.
Q: Where do we meet?
A: Our sessions are recorded online. That means you can attend from your computer, instead of having to fly somewhere and pay for hotels and taxis. This also means if you want to go back and review what we talked about, you can watch the recordings and take notes on YOUR time.
Q: What's your refund policy?
A: If you're not satisfied within 30 days of our work together, I offer a partial 50% refund.
Q: Can I continue to work with you after the initial 9 sessions?
A: Yes! Many people want to keep working with me at their new jobs, to help set expectations, get support during their first 90 days, and generally have a confidential friend to go to for the tricky relationship and trust building period of their new role.
Q: What's the cost?
A: It depends on how long you want to work together, so we negotiate that at the time you are ready to keep working together.
Q: Can I pay with Paypal?A: Yes! Just check the Paypal option below and you will be directed to PayPal. You don't have to have a PayPal account.
