Whatever your age or situation, we offer a customized program to help you.

“I did considerable research before deciding to work with Rockport. Most so called career experts and coaches used methods they had made up themselves or they had gone to a few classes. Others used the old fashioned tools my college’s career services used unsuccessfully twenty years ago.

Rockport was completely different: brilliant coaching and advice, world-class expertise, highly personal, nothing was canned or generic. In a few sessions I had designed a career in technology marketing that I love. I was able to make the change fairly easily. I used to be a recovering lawyer. Now I look forward to going to work.”
