Sam Hutchins, MS, PMP, Certified CareerCOACH™

Sam Hutchins, MS, is a Certified CareerCOACH™, dedicated to guiding job-seekers into fulfilling and financially-rewarding careers. In addition to a meritorious US military and technical career, Sam is a TTI Success Insights® DISC Certified, TTI-Motivators® Certified, and CareerCOACH Certified™ career advancement expert. He serves clients in the Middle Georgia region, as well as across the US and internationally.

Sam’s driving vision is “to cultivate a world where individuals can provide for themselves and their families and ultimately contribute to worldwide human flourishing with their time, talent, and treasure.” Sam is passionate about connecting, mentoring, and serving others. As a Certified CareerCOACH™, he is able to do that in a very practical and tangible way: His guidance results in clients finding meaningful work that aligns with and supports their life goals.

Sam became passionate about career coaching after struggling with his own career transition and journey when he separated from the US Air Force. As Sam says, “I experienced the full range of emotions of ups and downs from applying to hundreds of jobs without much to show for it.” Owing to the lessons and triumphs of his career journey, Sam specializes in coaching job-seekers who are: veterans transitioning to civilian roles; individuals who are looking to change careers completely, or start over after a career gap; and those who come from underprivileged backgrounds. Sam relates directly to all of these career phases and, as he says, “Everyone loves a good underdog story!”

Sam’s coaching philosophy dovetails perfectly with the CareerCOACH System™. “I believe people do their best work when they do something they enjoy and that aligns with their gifts and passions. I get to help my clients navigate obstacles, speed up the process of landing a desirable career opportunity, and also potentially change their perspective on their situation from a negative one to a positive one.”

After many years of career coaching, Sam pursued his CareerCOACH™ Certification, because of how the CareerCOACH System™ leverages years of proven methods for helping clients understand themselves deeply and thus to identify their ideal career. Sam is results-focused with a true heart for his clients’ success. Because of this he is thrilled to offer the CareerCOACH job-search process, whereby he helps his clients land their ideal careers in far less time – and avoid the fruitless online job searches altogether.

Sam achieved the rank of Major with the US Air Force, where he was an executive level project manager, overseeing budgets of $140M to $2.8B. He completed deployments with the Air Force: one in Afghanistan and three in Iraq. He was honored with awards seven different times throughout his career for meritorious service for his work at various bases in the US, overseas, and at the US Embassy in Iraq.

Sam earned a Master of Science degree in Management from Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Business from Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio. He holds numerous certifications, including Project Management Professional (PMP) (Project Management Institute); Security+ (CompTIA); IT Fundamentals (ITF+) (CompTIA); Contract Management Level 3 and Program Management Level 1 (Defense Acquisition University); Master Certificate in Government Contract Management (Villanova University). Sam enjoys serving regularly in his local church and also within the Macon community.
