Virtual Discussions


Virtual Discussions for entry through executive-level professionals. This “pen pals” service offers personalized career advice from a dedicated Career Coach via desktop, tablet, or mobile device. All in written form! Great for addressing urgent issues or engaging in substantive written correspondence. No meet ups or phone calls. Hosted within JobStars’ secure and confidential client portal. This service includes unlimited back and forth messaging with your Career Coach during your subscription period.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s super simple. You’re paired with a JobStars Career Coach via a confidential, secure platform for written correspondence on anything career-related where you seek help or support. This includes career transition, interview strategies, salary negotiation, networking, resume preparation, tips for using LinkedIn, and much more. Write out thoughts, comments, questions, or topics at whatever length you wish. Your assigned Career Coach will read and reply with the goal of helping you, challenging you, and encouraging you.

Virtual Discussions is a ‘post and reply’ format as opposed to real-time (instant messenger). Please allow one business day turnaround time for responses. Below is a screenshot of the Virtual Discussions text box for starting a new conversation.
