About Jeanette

Hello and thanks for looking at my website.  Let me tell you a little about myself.

I started my career as a social worker and enjoyed watching as my clients grew stronger and developed healthier choices for themselves.  I especially enjoyed the interviewing and career aspect of social work which led me to my next career in Human Resources.  I began recruiting in the healthcare field and eventually progressed into human resources work in hospitality, medical research, manufacturing and the non-profit arena.

After 15 years in Human Resources, I decided to combine my skills and start my own company which I named Silva Job Coaching.  It was not long before I was helping clients create resumes and cover letters for a variety of fields including IT, education, accounting, nursing, and the list goes on from there.  As an Interview Coach, I’ve worked with job seekers to help calm their anxiety about interviewing.   I work with individuals who want to fine tune their answers and feel more confident and prepared once the interview starts.  I love what I do and I’m tickled pink when a client calls to tell me that they have landed their dream job!

This led me to working with clients who are currently employed but struggling in a job that does not fit for them.   I enjoy listening to what is not working and developing workable solutions toward attaining a better fit.  Our work is a big part of us and I firmly believe that a positive work experience is an important aspect of our lives.

When I’m not working I spend my time enjoying the arts as well as the great outdoors.  You’ll see me out on my snowshoes when winter hits or tromping along a hiking trail when the weather warms up.
