Hillary Hufford-Tucker, Career Solutionista


Hiya! I’m Hillary, a solutionista career coach that helps growth-minded professionals develop fresh personal brands that reflect their unique value. I inspire Gen Xers and Boomers to get unstuck, regain employment, or pivot to cause-oriented work.


I don’t believe there’s a one-size-fits-all approach to coaching. I use my corporate experience as a spin doctor, brand marketer, and graphic designer to craft unique brands that build confidence, lower stress, and counter ageism in the path to new positions.


Personal Brand Image Coaching

Assess Your Goals and Value

Together, we’ll envision new opportunities with personal brand narratives, skills gap assessments, and competitive analysis.

Comfort comes in knowing what to say when asked, “Tell Me About Yourself.” We’ll build a personal brand statement and narratives that take the stress out of answering this loaded question.


Create a Stand-Out Resume

Your resume reflects your experience and goals. Let’s collaborate on a document that is both human-centric and works for applicant tracking systems.


Lead with Your LinkedIn
