Dr. Jan Cannon -- The Job Search DoctorHi, I’m Jan Cannon, PhD, The Job Search Doctor.

As a career advisor, workshop leader and author I’ve been helping clients find work they enjoy since 1995. Hundreds of people, from recent college grads to retirees, have used my services to change career direction, advance in their fields, find rewarding volunteer opportunities, and start their own businesses. Look around this site for more information about job search topics, resume and cover letter preparation, and career coaching services.

I’ve been an online expert for several websites, including Job-Hunt.org, CIO.com, jobfindtoday.com, The Boston Herald Career Connection, bellaonline.com, staffITnow.com, fabjob.com, WomenWork.org, and other career-related sites. And I’ve been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Business 2.0, Women’s World, AARP Bulletin, Working Mother, Real Simple and Woman’s Day.

In addition to working with individuals, I speak to groups and lead workshops on finding jobs, networking, staying motivated during an extended search, career choices, and life planning after 60. Recently I’ve joined with Rev. Jennifer Cook to provide workshops and retreats for personal renewal. (Visit SeekingTheSpirit.org for more information.)

I’m the author of Now What Do I Do? The Woman’s Guide to a New Career (Capital Books, 2005), available from amazon.com and am working on another book focusing on life issues after mid-career.
