Career Transition Coach & Resume Services for Managers & other Mid-Career Professionals

Partner with us on career transition resume and career transition services
to ensure that you make a smart and successful career move.

After conducting thousands of interviews, reviewing hundreds of thousands of resumes, and working with thousands of clients, we can tell you with great certainty that effective job search is about good process. Following proven steps with a career transition coach increases the likelihood that you will be in a situation where you feel like you are choosing, rather than settling for something that you really don’t want.

Hi. I’m Ian Christie, and I lead the Bold Career Project team. Whether you are seeking a promotion or that next big step in your career or ensuring that when the phone rings, you will be ready, you need to tell your story effectively. We are here to help you define your brand. And develop that story. Then, when it comes time to go to market, to help you campaign strategically and effectively.

When you start a job search in a rush, without preparing, you dramatically decrease the likelihood of landing something you really want and deserve.

Bold Career Project

“After 19 years with my company I decided that I needed to make a strategic career move. Off the market for so many years I realized very quickly that I needed help in jumpstarting this next phase of my life so I enrolled into a career transition program. Finding Ian was the best start I could have hoped for. I opted for the 'top of the line' service which included a series of online tools and training on resumes, job searching, networking, etc. Also included in the service and what I found most valuable was the one on one meetings. Through conversation and crafty probing he was able to help me unpack my brain and put on paper what I've achieved over the past 19 years.

After 3 months of working with Ian I landed my new assignment and have him to thank for helping me get there.”

Bold Career Project

“Working with BoldCareer.com has proven to be one of the best decisions I have made in my professional career. With Ian’s assistance, I developed an understanding of my own skills and abilities, and I now feel empowered as I know how and to whom I can market my skills to achieve desired results.

I found the traditional job search frustrating as few opportunities arose and even fewer seemed to have the appropriate fit for me. I was a very challenging client as I had extensive experience in a unique industry with seemingly little transference to other industries; particularly industries that provided the personal fit I so desperately sought. Ian facilitated a structured analysis and definition of my skills which we then packaged and used to approach targeted firms. As a result, I was offered exactly what I was looking for: a challenging position; working with exceptional people and technology; and, within an industry that I am passionate about. ”

Change Management Consultant

We are often asked ... "do you have experience with someone like me?"


The answer is almost always YES! Here are some common situations that we deal with every day

  • Client has only a fuzzy idea of their professional value and best fit roles and is unclear about what they want to do next | Very common and a great reason to partner with us. 
  • Client has worked in the same company (or job) for many years and knows little about the modern job search world | For sure. Very common. 
  • Client has one or more hard to explains "bumps" in their career - restructurings, a job that didn't work out, no references - and is having trouble explaining it | Understood. We will help you make sense of the event (or pattern), develop messaging and help you move forward with confidence.
  • Client has recently been exited from their job and is feeling at-risk, confused, and may have low confidence | We've got you. We are very experienced supporting clients in this situation. 
  • Client has worked in a series of roles and feels pigeon-holed or specialized in something they don't want to be focused on, or there isn't much of a market for | Yes, this is common. Our process will help.  
  • Client is experiencing a crisis of confidence | We've got you. 
  • Client is very clear about their next step and needs help making it happen | Bring it on! 

Who is not a fit? That's a great question and not everyone is a fit. Here are the common situations

  • Client is thinking about a career change that is completely unrelated to their previous history (ie. from accountant to dentist). That's not our focus. 
  • Client is looking for a provider to give them "the answer" to what should they do with their life.
  • Client is looking for a provider to do the searching part of job search - finding the job on their behalf. Acting as their recruiter or networker. 

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

Where are your clients located?

We are based in Vancouver Canada. However, our clients are often remote and we work together via Zoom, email, a private dropbox folder and our online platform. Across Canada (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Victoria, etc.), the U.S. (Boston, New York, Chicago, Seattle, etc.) and international (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, London, Paris, Mexico City, etc.)

How long does the process take?

It depends on four factors: your level of urgency, how much digging you need to do (and your availability) and which program selected. The Bronze program could be done in 10 days while the Deluxe could take months.

What do I need to do?

Career moves vary in complexity and might involve self-discovery, exploration, learning and execution. We work together in partnership to achieve this. Our expectation of you is that you’re ready to engage in the important work of figuring this out.

What is your refund policy?

You can request a full refund up to and including the first 30 minutes of the first consultation with no questions asked. We do not issue refunds beyond that point. However, unused fees will be returned to you should you elect to stop the process.
