About William (Liam)
I am a career coach, IT consultant, English teacher, writer, and editor. For over 15 years, I have helped candidates find career opportunities, write résumés, and prepare for interviews. I have written a book on job searching—Hold My Hand! … and find me a job—and started my own business. I also taught business English in Mexico for over two years to executives, consultants, salespeople, and other professionals.
I explain the psychology behind résumés, interviewing, and salary negotiation in straightforward ways with exercises that develop these essential career skills.
William (Liam) has volunteered to be available for private messages. Feel free to send a conversational message but remember to be succinct and mindful of the other person’s time.
