Works at Career Design Coach - Principal | Professional Speaker | Author | Personal Branding Strategist | Social Media Strategist | Career Coach When I started Career Design Coach in April 2008, I could have never imagined the opportunities that would come my way via social media. I've written and had a book published, contributed to other published books, and have been named as one of the Top 150 Experts on Twitter for Job Seekers to follow as well as one of the Top 100 Personal Brand Strategists. I am frequently tapped by the media for interviews on online identity and social media, including the Wall Street Journal, Monster.com, TheLadders.com, and many more. I love to learn and my passion in leveraging social media as part of a person's career marketing strategy is unwavering. Firsthand, I have seen the positive effects of networking in real-world and social media environments. You can contact me directly about speaking or consulting at kristen@careerdesigncoach.com.

Introduction
Kristen Jacoway’s Key Accomplishments

Kristen Jacoway is a successful business leader, CEO of Career Design Coach, and the author of the best-selling published book, ‘I’m in a Job Search – Now What???’ now in its’ 2nd edition. Her book is being used as a required textbook in some large university programs. She is working on 2 other books: The Formidable Road and Reputation Matters: How to Succeed in a Digital Age. She is the contributing author in the prestigious best sellers of books titled: Personal Branding for Dummies, Cover Letters for Dummies, Job Search Letters for Dummies, and more. She is often tapped by the media for quotes, including the Atlantic City Weekly, Monster.com, TheLadders.com, Aol, Yahoo Careers, Identity Protection.com (part of Equifax), and more.

More about Kristen…

Originally from Huntsville, AL and the daughter of an internationally known rocket scientist, Kristen has always had an interest in technology and learning. When she realized in 2008 that she could combine her passion for helping people in their job search use social media to market themselves, the idea to launch Career Design Coach was born. Kristen has worked many years in both the private outplacement and state Vocational Rehabilitation, so she can offer audiences a truly unique view of how to apply her research. She lives in Auburn, Alabama with her two children. One of her children has high-functioning autism and the other child has a severe hearing loss in her left ear (and changes her hearing aid molds to all kinds of color combinations!). Therefore, she not only looks at this from a professional stance, but also as a mother.

With her unique style, she delivers customized, entertaining and dynamic motivational and keynote presentations and seminar programs to companies, state agencies, professional associations, and organizations across the United States, including Sprint, Alabama Department of Rehabilitation, Georgia Department of Labor, Georgia Rehabilitation Association, West Virginia Department of Rehabilitation Services, Southeast Regional Institute on Deafness, State Coordinator for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing conference, Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation, TACE, Education Forum, Auburn University, Alabama A&M, Alabama Association of Colleges and Employers (AL chapter of NACE), and more.

Above all, her message empowers each person to find and unleash the potential that is inherent within each of us. Her focus is to motivate, educate, entertain, challenge and inspire her audience to take action!
