Building Awesome Careers for Leaders and Individuals
“When you get to the end of your life,
what do you want to be known for?” – Jen Anderson
In 2009, I started consulting with companies because I noticed that they were struggling with hiring and keeping the right employees. This came on the heels of working in the recruiting industry for 11 years and having placed about 1,000 people in new jobs and dealing with over 100,000 job seekers.
During those 11 years of being in the recruiting arena, I saw too many companies hiring when they should not be hiring, or hiring the wrong type of people. Then, managers and HR would have to deal with problematic employees and turn over of the wrong employees.
Additionally, I saw too many people making career changes without really knowing what they wanted to get out of their career – unfortunately, I saw these bad career choices being made at all levels from entry-level positions to executives.
Today, I leverage 22+ years of coaching and training to:
- Help companies to keep the right employees and reduce the unwanted attrition.
- Help individuals with their career development and transitions.
I am here for you to get the career development answers you need for yourself as a leader, for your team’s career development, and for individuals who want to take better ownership of their career. You’ll see links to my different programs listed below.
You can have an awesome career! I promise.
To your successful career,
Career Coach Jen

It was my good fortune to meet Jen early in 2010. I found out about Jen’s expertise and after some interaction with her, I knew she was the one that could help our BYU Executive MBA students manage their careers better. She is dynamic, gives great feedback in a professional manner and really knows her stuff. Jen is someone that can connect with individuals very quickly and is very perceptive in how she helps others manage their careers. She would be a valuable resource for anyone looking to develop professionally.
I’ve come to know Jennifer as a very knowledgeable expert in the field of career coaching. She is very thorough and direct, which is exactly what is needed when someone is considering switching careers. Jennifer gets straight to the point and asks tough questions that not only make you think but push people to action. She is insightful, knowledgeable and approachable which makes you immediately like and trust her.
I have hired Jen both as a career and team coach. She’s always well prepared and knowledgeable about the subjects she trains on, and her engaging personality encourages everyone to participate. As a career coach, she was successful in helping me classify, understand and leverage my strengths more thoroughly, and identify areas I could improve in. She helped me tune up my game. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help getting a team to synergize and work more effectively together, and as a career coach.
