Duncan Mathison coaches professional clients on effective job search tactics when the economy is bad and the job market is tight. Recognizing that most people would much rather have a job than look for a job, he prefers an approach that is focused, effective, and less reliant on wishing a dream job will be advertised and a resume will somehow survive the screening process employers put in place to protect themselves from the hordes of unemployed. His clients have ranged across industries including finance, technology, telecommunications, biotechnology, retail, and entertainment. His tools are effective for job seekers looking to quickly find work in their field or successfully reinvent their careers.
Previously, he spent 18 years as vice president, managing director, and senior consultant for Drake Beam Morin (DBM), a global outplacement firm. Today, Duncan is an author and speaker on organization performance, leadership, and executive career topics.
In addition to writing on career and leadership topics, he has frequently appeared in the media, including the New York Times, MSNBC, CNN, FOX News, Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, and Yahoo’s HotJobs.com.
