Click Worthy: Career Coach, Career Counselor or Career Services?

We've rounded up some Click Worthy links for the weekend to help you get the answers to all of these questions!

Millennial Career Coach Jacqueline Twillie Helps Make Negotiating a Success



I truly, truly love a woman who has a passion for the success of other women, and works tirelessly to help them become the success they want to be in work and in life. One such woman is Jacqueline Twillie, Atlanta-based author and career coach who has worked closely with hiring managers of Fortune 500 companies, assisted numerous professionals in helping them to land new jobs, and showing up to speak at places from Georgia Tech to the General Assembly. Jacqueline has taken up an important mission: to help eliminate the gender wage gap.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jacqueline in helping to bring awareness of the importance of getting all of your coins and earning your worth, and I knew that I had to have a chat with her here on A Woman'$ Worth. Especially when she unveiled a new tool to help women better prepare for one of the most nerve-wrecking must-dos of their careers: negotiating. It's something Jacqueline, like a lot of us, once didn't even know she should be doing at all.
