Welcome to the Strategy of your career

strat·e·gy /stradəjē/ noun. A plan of action to achieve a major goal

You have a goal. We have the strategy. Together we create your reality.

If you are not exactly where you want to be in your career you have come to the right place.  

The primary cause keeping us from where we want to be is a business communication breakdown.  Business is all about communication. And successful communication is a combination of three critical  language elements: writing, speaking, and movement. 

One differential in working with Career Polish is that or founder and CEO, Lisa K. McDonald is the only career professional coach trained/certified in all three building blocks of communication: Certified Professional Resume Writer, Certified Career Coach, Certified Social Brand Strategist, Body Language and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). 

You will work directly with Lisa as  she brings clarity and direction to your career. Combining her expertise and unique insight, she will empower you through resumes, LinkedIn, interviewing, career coaching, public speaking, networking and leadership coaching to achieve your goals and create the career you want.

The Language of Business: 3 key elements

The Written Word


Resumes - LinkedIn - Professional Bios

Readers form an image of you based on the words you chose - is your image exactly what you want others to perceive? Let us help you redefine your brand in your voice demonstrating your value. 

The Spoken Word


Interviewing - Presenting - Networking 

The right words, tone, and patterns will influence, persuade, and engage your audience.  Incorporate NLP strategies into any speaking opportunity for enhanced success.

The Body's Delivery


Public Speaking - Leadership - Training 

Your body language screams what your words whisper. Subtle  changes in your mannerisms - and recognizing subtle changes in others will increase your influence and persuasion. 

Our Services

Resumes - LinkedIn


Your resume is not only a reflection of you and your value, but must also past through at least three gatekeepers. Your LinkedIn is a very different conversation that must fit within SEO parameters. We get you found and noticed with a comprehensive, unique process that results in personalized, strategic branding pieces.
