Career Coaching --> Get Hired

We Help Senior Professionals and Executives Get Six-Figure Roles

Welcome to NotionPath – where we seek the exceptional.

David McKnight, Principal/Owner, and Chief People Officer

I believe the recruiting industry and processes are BROKEN.   It’s not working for Professionals or Employers.   Are you going to go about this challenge like everyone else?

  • Albert Einstein is broadly credited with exclaiming “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

If instead, you are interested in a different approach.   One that still requires your active participation but getting the help that goes well beyond the perfectively written resume.

I have experience placing 100’s of professional and working with 1000’s over 25 years of building multiple winning teams creating significant shareholder value.   Lets me help you find that next challenge in your career.

Professional Career Coaching

I work with business professionals on one of the biggest challenges we face – your career.   Yes, a Resume and LinkedIn Page are important but I go well beyond that and help with making connections, network, introduction to employers, assessments, help to prepare for interviews to actual placement.  Delivered by 25 years of experience as a hiring manager at the c-level interviewing 1,000’s of professionals and hiring over 500 at all levels.   I bring focused practical advise and help to get interviews.

Packages and custom solutions…see details below…all with the number one KPI (Key Performance Indicator) – Get Hired in a role you love.

VALUE-BASED FEES – Results-focused Transformational

We break down the Career Search process into three areas of focus

1. Career Coaching – help you get alignment on the right role(s) and companies for you.

      • Young Professionals – need help with a career strategy that places you on a path to success
      • Mid-Career Professional – Career change or advancement opportunities
      • Senior or Leadership Professional – Refine the search, get introductions or take a new pat

2. Tactical Preparations – We’ll support you on the mechanics of the job search – resume, LinkedIn, interviewing, assessments*, performance reviews, social media, networking, tips, and advice.
*Assessments alone are a $495 value

At NotionPath we go beyond what most Career Coaches provide by helping our professionals where it can matter the most – the actual search.

3. Strategic Search including Introductions/ACTIVE Placement Search: Advertised and the 70% of roles unadvertised
