Kate uniquely combines personal creativity, subject matter expertise and pragmatism in her approach to solving the dilemmas facing those in career transition. She aptly approaches tough situations with humor while distilling them into pieces that can be acted upon. Her experience and insight into the challenging and often daunting process of transitioning from one career to another has been beneficial to me on several occasions.

I first met Kate Culligan at her Career Connect Coffee Club networking group a few years ago. That meeting resulted in my getting a lead that led to a job. Since then I’ve continued to rely on Kate as a resource and for her expert advice on resumes, interviewing, and networking. With her optimistic approach she inspires everyone to believe in themselves and their future. Kate inspired me to become a career counselor and she has been my personal mentor ever since.

Kate Culligan worked as a career coach for Oppenheimer bringing her vast experience in personal career coaching into a corporate environment by translating the goals of the organization into actionable plans for employees. Kate is equally comfortable coaching high potential employees and assisting in gracefully exiting employees. Kate is great at communicating with the management teams she works with, all the while keeping a close and confidential relationship with her client. Kate is also versatile in designing and delivering innovative development programs to large groups. Her Career Pathways program at OppenheimerFunds is a standard part of the firm’s organizational development curriculum. Kate’s human approach to career coaching is a wonderful addition to any company’s development program.
