Story
Tagline
Career coach/blogger helping you find and do work you love - your "right fit" job
Introduction
Julia Erickson is a career coach, blogger, writer and job search coach helping people find their "right fit" work - work they absolutely love to do.  She is a subject matter expert on career management, the non-profit sector, and a wide range of business leadership and management areas.

Julia(e) specializes in supporting people to find their "right fit” work - their individual paths to happiness and fulfillment in their work lives.  Through coaching, teaching and writing, she enables people to pursue their dreams and passions, develop leadership ability, effectively market themselves, improve communication and interpersonal skills, and make fulfilling work and career transitions.  Julia/e is especially expert at helping people zero in on their "core value proposition" and effectively market themselves to employers and customers. 

During her 25 years in New York City’s non-profit and public service sector, Julie/a raised more than $100 million - much of it through individuals and through direct marketing. She led City Harvest for 11 years, and Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project. She exponentially increased City Harvest's impact and visibility, making City Harvest a household word for fighting hunger in New York City. Julie is most proud of shifting from delivering 75% baked goods out of 4.5 million pounds of food to delivering 2/3 fresh produce out of 25 million pounds of food delivered each year to non-profits. Julie became expert at all things workforce while leading Public/Private Initiatives at the New York City Department of Employment during the Dinkins administration.  She honed her management skills at the Community Service Society of New York and began her fundraising career at a community development organization in the South Bronx.


Julie is a graduate of Smith College and has an MBA in Leadership from New York Institute of Technology.  She did graduate work in political theory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and got specialized training at Columbia University’s Institute for Non-Profit Management and NYU’s Wagner School. Among her numerous awards is the James Beard Foundation’s 2003 Humanitarian of the Year and Woman’s Day Magazine’s 2002 “Women Who Inspire Us.”
Bragging rights
Reinvented myself after non-profit career, was 2003 James Beard Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year because of work to feed rescue workers at Ground Zero after 9/11, still have friends from grade school, am an identical twin so if I don't say hello when you see me - it's not me!

I have a beautiful new roof thanks to All Over Exterior Remodeling. Julio Checon explained everything to me very clearly so I knew my options, and the price was great. He was on site making sure everything went well, and made sure I was satisfied with the entire process. I love my new roof!
