Career Planning

For me, it has been an adventure more than a career. And I live for adventure.

My adventure to becoming a career coach started after making my own career change from being a branding expert for companies such as McDonald’s, Sara Lee, Blue Cross/Blue Shield to becoming a self-branding expert and career coach for professionals during their career transition and search.

I believe that I am here to partner with people as they find your happy work and spectacular life, whatever that means for you.

With a passion for empowering others to realize their dreams, I know what it takes to make a leap to a better paying job or to running your own business. I’ve done it myself and for thousands of other professionals in all professions and various stages of their career. Today, I am a sought-after career advisor and self-branding expert.

My clients say they choose to work with me because I understand how to go from being stuck to stellar. I’ve been there.

They know they can rely on my proven methodologies to provide career advancement strategies and world class branding documents to keep their job candidacy relevant and competitive in the multi-channel new world of work.

No one should have to go it alone. I am here walk you through the next adventure in the world of work.

    • “Danielle delivers the perfect blend of strategic career coaching combined with hands on practical tools. After our initial meeting, I had a clear vision of where I was heading with specific targets and an action plan. As a coach, she was able to provide the push I needed as both a critic and a supporter. With Danielle’s guidance, I quickly found more opportunities. Working with Danielle was the best decision I made during my career search and clearly the best value of all of the other resources I used. I only wish I had contacted her sooner! I highly recommend Danielle and will continue to work with Danielle as a trusted advisor.”

    • “I highly recommend Danielle to any professional looking for a job or new career. I started working with Danielle and her company Danielle M. Dayries & Associates after being laid off from a job that I had for 15 years. Needless to say, I was not familiar with the modern day job hunt and started from ground zero. After developing a great resume, Danielle coached me through the many job search’s, networking and interviewing tools that she has used and developed successfully.
