We are Different


There are a lot of free career services available but, unfortunately, the vast majority are not effective for executives and professionals. Such services include church job seeker groups, mutual support groups, web-based seminars, and untold amateurs who fashion themselves to be experts regarding the current job market.

When you take the time to consider that ineffective services can delay your career progress and personal happiness, these types of services can be, in fact, economically and emotionally costly ... despite no out of pocket costs to you.

To learn the differences between these traditional services, please take the time to review our article on this subject.

We are different from other free and paid alternatives. Although we can shift into "coaching mode" when needed, we mostly offer expert advisement as trained consultants.

To learn more about us, please see our About Us page.


We have over 50 written testimonials with the names of real people on www.linkedin.com/richardkirbyatl, approximately 20 of the 50 are shown, to reduce the congestion on the LinkedIn profile.

Here is a verbatim client testimonial letter we received from a client who went from $135K to $185K in their first year on their new job:

Dear Richard,

I want to express my gratitude for your ongoing counsel, guidance, and encouragement during my recent job search. I could not have landed my dream job without you.

I was clearly underutilized and underpaid in my old position. In addition, there was no room for advancement. The prospect of tackling a mid-career job change (while employed in a demanding job) was scary and intimidating to me, so I had not put forth much effort to find a new opportunity. Then, I was referred to you.

I knew after our first meeting it was time for me to get serious about improving my circumstances and invest in myself, both financially and with my time. You let me know early on that it was okay to want more from my job and reasonable to expect to be fully compensated for my contributions. You and Robin made me confident that I could achieve what I desired and you motivated me to step up to the challenge of competing for it.

Partnering with you was a great decision and I will be forever grateful to you for helping me re-strategize my career options, hone my networking skills, take consistent and effective action, and become completely prepared for the panel interview that got me this job. Despite having never been subjected to a panel interview, the effectiveness of our preparations were confirmed by my new HR manager who told me "You did great in your interview."

After only three weeks in my new role, I can't believe what a wonderful lifestyle change I am experiencing in a first-class company where I am truly valued for my abilities and contributions. Plus, I am getting paid what I am worth and have room for advancement. I am loving it!

Call any time if I can be of assistance.

Here is a sampling from our 50+ LinkedIn public testimonials:

Richard is a personable, savvy and high integrity career coach. Richard was instrumental in strengthening my resume, interviewing, and personal brand skills, and helped me obtain my current position as President & CEO of Gerber Life Insurance.” Wesley Protheroe

After a long and successful run with my last employer, I felt the timing was right for me to make a proactive career move. However, I didn't feel equipped to make a positive change and maintain my executive level compensation in today's difficult job market. Luckily, I was referred to Executive Impact. They gave me strategies and motivation that helped me succeed in my job search. I landed a great new position with a first class organization. I feel very fortunate and can strongly recommend Richard and Robin as a satisfied client.” Mary Beth Wafer

Richard Kirby is a consummate professional, who provided an organized and proactive program for my recent job transition. I had not been in a job search for twelve years, and found it extremely helpful to work with someone so well versed in current job market realities, and the latest available tools to assist and manage the process. I'd recommend Richard and Executive-Impact without reservation." Tim Solomon
