Wanderlust

Career Counseling

Here's what some of our past clients have to say:  

"I had one phone 10-15 minute phone conversation with Katherine that resulted in her helping me get a job without even using her services."

One other time I had tried to go to a career counselor and was basically told "Well, there's really no helping you 'creative types', sorry." I had one phone 10-15 minute phone conversation with Katherine that resulted in her helping me get a job without even using her services. To me the fact that she was willing to help me in a way that did not benefit her at all speaks volumes to the level of care and character that this business is being run with and I would recommend them to anyone in need of some help" 

Frank / New York, NY

 "I feel extremely blessed and grateful to have Michael by my side."

If today, I am what I am, I owe it all to one person - Michael. I have come a long long way ahead, and closer to the person I want to be because of his empathy and guidance. From Day 1, he made me feel comfortable and I opened up to him without any inhibitions or walls. With every talk, I feel myself grow. No matter what state of mind I enter in, I’ve always left feeling so happy after talking to him. His understanding of the mind is simply brilliant. He allows me to gain perspective on situations as well as myself. I admire the approach he takes to keenly understand as well as give context to conversations. My journey with him has evolved from therapy to coaching and he will always be a very integral part of my life. I feel extremely blessed and grateful to have Michael by my side. 

Nishita / Brooklyn, NY

"The day after I submitted the new resume to a job (that I had applied for two times prior), I got called for an interview, and that is where I am currently happily working! "

"I had the honor of working with Katie to update my resume and also build a new one for a different career direction. They were both works of art that were carefully thought out, making the highlights shine and using wording suitable for what I was looking for. They were efficient and professional and overall extremely well done.  The day after I submitted the new resume to a job (that I had applied for two times prior), I got called for an interview, and that is where I am currently happily working! I also got called for two other interviews from the new resumes that I submitted.  Katie really took her time to get to know me, where I'm coming from, and what I was looking to achieve. She is a great communicator, reliable, supportive, and a joy to work with. I recommend Katie to anyone looking to greatly improve their approach to job hunting!"

Emily / New York, NY

"I thoroughly enjoyed every interaction...she went out of her way to help me."

It has been a pleasure to work with Katie as I was considering transitioning in my career. I thoroughly enjoyed every interaction with her whether it was video conferencing, telephone calls, or e-mails. She was quick in grasping my situation and she went out of her way to help me and was always very prompt in responding. Even today I know she will not decline. I strongly recommend her!

"I highly recommend him for anyone who would like to move to the next level."

"Working with Michael McCutcheon has been an absolute pleasure.  What I appreciate most about his guidance is his objectivity in reviewing and assessing the steps taken and his intuitiveness regarding what the next step should be. He is responsive, available and also very kind! I highly recommend him for anyone who would like to move to the next level."

Phoebe / Savannah, GA

"Michael has coached me through graduate school, family transitions, and professional growth with a compassionate, attentive, and enthusiastic consistency that has changed my life. "

"When I first came to Michael I wanted to work on decision making, our time together not only improved my ability to make decisions but illuminated many other areas for growth. Michael has suggested a range of easy tasks, shared quotes and stories tailored to my personal journey and held me accountable to my goals with gentle humor and a firm reassurance that the best self can always be rediscovered and nurtured. Because of my sessions with Michael I am a better resource to my friends and family, many of whom regularly remark on the positive changes they have witnessed firsthand. Michael has coached me through graduate school, family transitions, and professional growth with a compassionate, attentive, and enthusiastic consistency that has changed my life. 

Kyla/ Providence, RI

Her background in psychotherapy contributes to how easy it feels to sort through goals, obstacles and solutions with her, in order to get pointed in the right direction."

"Katie provided great guidance at a time when I was feeling extremely stuck in a mild quarter-life career crisis. Her background in psychotherapy contributes to how easy it feels to sort through goals, obstacles and solutions with her, in order to get pointed in the right direction.

He has been nothing but personable, attentive, compassionate, and dedicated in helping me achieve my goals. I can honestly say I am a much stronger and more confident person after working with Michael

David / Seattle, WA

"Immediately, I received responses from a number of places I applied to, and interviewed with several companies until I completed the process with a position and company that felt right."

"After cutting ties with a job and career path that had left me feeling unfulfilled, I had several questions that I was struggling with, in creating a new path. Katie's process helped me with these questions. Through several tests we were able to get a clearer picture on my strengths, passions, and general work preferences. We then used that to put together a game plan to find a situation that would be a good fit for me. The support continued as I started actively searching for jobs - including up-to-date, effective strategies in connecting with potential employers, as well as thorough resume and cover letter reviews. Immediately, I received responses from a number of places I applied to, and interviewed with several companies until I completed the process with a position and company that felt right. My current job is feeling much more fulfilling than my previous one, while in an environment much better suited for my strengths. From start to finish, Katie's process has greatly assisted me in developing the skills necessary to first define what I want, and then go execute those goals."

Patrick / Ludlow, VT

"I got a job within 2 months. This was one of the best investments I've ever made, and it certainly paid for itself in my first paycheck at the new job!"

"I cannot recommend Wanderlust enough!! I started working with Katie as I was moving from London to NYC and job searching. I already knew what field I wanted to work in, but needed help narrowing down exactly what I wanted- in a very short amount of time! I completed 5 counseling sessions with Katie. She coached me in every aspect of my search from start to finish- reviewing my cover letters and resume, going over interview techniques, and later when offers came through, on benefits and salary negotiation. The entire process was conducted via Skype and e-mail, which made it incredibly convenient, especially during a hectic period of my life when I was job searching AND looking for an apartment simultaneously! I got a job within 2 months. I know it would have taken at least twice as long without Katie's help, which I literally could not afford. This was one of the best investments I've ever made, and it certainly paid for itself in my first paycheck at the new job!"

Emilia / New York, NY

"Katie has a way of helping you think outside of the box and realize that there is so much more opportunity out there than you might see at first glance"

"I really can't say enough about Wanderlust and Katie's ability to provide counseling and help me with my career path. I came to her after coming to terms with the fact that I was really unhappy with my employment situation and needed to make a change. I had no idea if I wanted to completely change careers or just make move into another area in the same field. After a just a few sessions, Katie helped me figure out what was really important to me and guided me in such a way that I was able to not only figure out a path that has not only made me happier with my job, but also enabled me to make more money at the same time. Katie has a way of helping you think outside of the box and realize that there is so much more opportunity out there than you might see at first glance. I would recommend Wanderlust to anyone who is struggling and needs a boost."

Theo /  New York, NY

"Katie is a warm, thoughtful person and immediately makes you feel at ease.  She has creative and outside the box suggestions."

"Katie is a warm, thoughtful person and immediately makes you feel at ease.  She has creative and outside the box suggestions.  She helped me come up with an action plan and work toward my goals.  Katie helped me to calm my anxieties about my career and find happiness at my current job.  She also inspired me to explore other interests outside of work (Pilates, clean eating, and acting) that have enriched my life and improved my performance at work."

Laura / New York, NY

"Insightful and supportive."

"My experience with Katie was so positive! She is insightful and supportive. I still use her suggestions and techniques for managing and overcoming emotionally challenging situations at work." 

Bernadette / San Francisco, CA

"Understanding, empathetic, and encouraging."

"I decided to study abroad after three years in college in order to help me decide on the direction of my life/career. After regular sessions during my semester, Katie enabled me to finally decide on the best direction for me and was so understanding, empathetic, and encouraging. I can't wait to return to university and continue my pursuit of this direction of my life! She was truly amazing!"
