Jill VanderYacht, SHRM-CP | Certified CareerCOACH™

Jill VanderYacht is a CareerCOACH™ Certified job placement expert serving the Seattle-North region. Your success is her passion and she’s ready to help you make your next great career move!

Jill VanderYacht joins CareerCOACH™ Services as a TTI Success Insights® DISC Certified, TTI-Motivators® Certified, and CareerCOACH™ Certified job coach expert. Jill brings 16+ years of human resources, career coaching, job-transitioning, leadership, and performance management skills to her role. Jill relies on her extensive skills and training to help her clients find the best career match in a position they are passionate about with a company that values and appreciates them.

About her approach to working with clients, Jill says, “My approach is open and flexible. I get to know my clients by asking questions and listening for keys to their struggle. This approach allows me to help them define clear career goals and action plans that are suited perfectly to them.”

Jill’s background includes serving as Human Resources Director, Career and Job Coach, Recruiter, and HR Generalist, as well as HR Business Consultant for many local businesses. She has provided HR and recruitment services for multi-state companies with thousands of employees. In addition, she has delivered career coaching to individual professionals and teams. The breadth and depth of her prior experience, combined with her intensive CareerCOACH System™ training translates to significant advantages to her clients.

“The CareerCOACH System™ is so far beyond conversational or motivational coaching,” explains Jill. “I work with my clients to align their passions, purpose, motivators, and career goals before they begin their job search. We work collaboratively, producing tailored, high-value deliverables at every stage of the process. They learn new ways of sourcing jobs, based on a unique, proven process that actually accelerates the job search.”

Jill has completed extensive training to earn CareerCOACH™ Certification, along with TTI Success Insights® DISC and TTI-Motivators® Certifications. This training is at the core of the CareerCOACH System™, which employs a series of science and behavior-based tools that accelerate the job search and helps clients find meaningful and rewarding employment. More than just exercises – these critical foundational steps are key to focusing the job search toward a fulfilling and rewarding career path.

Under Jill’s expert guidance, clients build persuasive and effective resumes and cover letters, and create optimized LinkedIn pages that get noticed by employers. Knowing that the best job openings aren’t always posted online and that job boards are saturated with candidates, Jill arms her clients with proven tools and tactics for discovering “hidden” opportunities for career advancement, then prepares them with job interview best practices, offer letter evaluation, and salary negotiation skills.

Jill earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management from Washington State University, where she minored in Business Administration. She earned a Human Resource Certification from Bellevue Community College, and holds a Society for Human Resources Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP).
