Entrepreneur Coaching

Have you been thinking about starting your own solo entrepreneur or small business? Being your own boss is great, but working on your own does not mean you have to go it alone. Coaching provides the accountability and support needed so you can reap the rewards of being a solo entrepreneur – with less doubt, stress and struggle. All Coaching Sessions are 1 hour, and done via Skype or Zoom Video Chat, and must be scheduled within my availability calendar.

Career Development Coaching

Focus the next raise or promotion, or support as you create a personalized career growth or leadership growth plan. All Coaching Sessions are 1 hour, and done via Skype or Zoom Video Chat, and must be scheduled within my availability calendar.

Career Coaching

Are you in that weird place trying to decide what you want to be when you “grow up” . . .again? I envision this process as if you’ve been handed a 1000-piece puzzle, with no picture on the box! Career Coaching will help you collect and assess all the pieces of your puzzle, using a wide variety of self-assessment exercises and research, as you discover your new path.

Job Search Coaching

When you are looking for a new job, finding it IS the job. It’s a full time effort – but it doesn’t have to wear you down!

A strategic job search requires discipline AND enthusiasm. Staying focused and motivated comes from the knowledge that your time is being invested wisely. I see too many people spend their energy on efforts that are a waste of time and then they find themselves discouraged and broke.

That’s why a strategic job search works so effectively. It is a systematic plan of attack that gives your efforts a laser focus. Together we create a customized strategy for you that includes – 

  • Clarifying your preferred position
  • Creating and prioritizing a target company list
  • Job search strategies for online, in-print, and in-person networking
  • Building an online presence and strong personal brand
  • Executing your job search campaign
  • Networking your way into a job

You will be amazed at how much more excited and optimistic you are once you are following a coherent, effective plan with coaching and expert guidance to see it through.

Hi! I’m Julie Mendez!

I'm a Career Coach and Certified Job Search Specialist with twelve years of experience. As a homeschooling parent for the past ten years, I have been a Working While Homeschooling parent from the beginning! After seeing constant requests for help finding work opportunities and career tips and advice from other homeschool moms, my passions for homeschooling, supporting women, and career coaching are finally combined under a new umbrella: Working While Homeschooling.

I want to encourage all job seekers, to identify their dream and pursue it with ingenuity, passion, and determination. My calling is to aid others in finding fulfilling work that utilizes their unique talents. One of my greatest rewards is hearing from excited clients about that new job offer they just received!

I have a unique perspective into the recruitment process and the job search strategy that gets a jobseeker back to work (in a job they love) quickly. I have three coach-related certifications, ten years as a Career Coach, five years in the recruiting industry in both New York and Washington, DC, and a degree from New York University. I am a regular event speaker with a multicultural and global background.
