What is a Good Fit Career?
Who is This For?

A Good Fit Career is a career that fits your life and goals. It is an escape from soul crushing work that doesn’t inspire you!

Good Fit Careers is for anyone looking for a new position, preparing for career advancement, or just wanting the comfort of being ready for the next step!

I’m ready for something new, but I haven’t looked for a job in quite some time. Can Good Fit Careers help me get ready to find a great new job?

Yes! We specialize in helping people build their understanding of how to successfully navigate today’s hiring process. Ryan, the Founder of Good Fit Careers, spent the first 10 years of his career hiring on behalf of some of the world’s best companies. From contingent staffing through exclusive retained executive search, Ryan focuses on teaching you what you need to know to make your own well informed decisions in your search. Ryan believes that you will need to make up your own mind, and focuses on sharing his insights on the hiring process so you can work through your search with an informed perspective.

I’ve tried applying for jobs I am excited about recently, but I have not been able to land a job offer. Can you help me figure out what I need to do differently?

Yes! This can be a challenge for even the most skilled and experienced professionals. Telling your story and building your resume in a way that gets through Applicant Tracking systems, shows recruiters what they’re looking for, and resonates with your new team is our specialty! Ryan’s straightforward and actionable approach to telling your professional story starts by helping you understand how each of your audiences operates, and what they are generally looking for. Small but impactful changes to your resume and LinkedIn profile can make all the difference. Our goal is to help you understand WHY those changes make a difference.

I haven’t interviewed with a new company for quite a while, and my interview skills are feeling pretty rusty. Can you help me get my interview skills back to where they need to be?

Yes! Telling your story in a clear, concise, and compelling way can be very difficult. With thousands of interviews under his belt, Ryan will teach you what goes into an excellent interview, how to apply those concepts to your story, and why these techniques and strategies make a difference. With 10 years of recruiting experience and 4 years of career coaching experience, Ryan can help you assess, analyze, and refine your approach.

I am not quite sure what I want to do next, but I know I am ready for a change. Can you help me find my way?

Yes! Deciding where you’re headed next can be terribly difficult. Taking the time to reflect on your overall career, your recent experiences, and your desires moving forward can be overwhelming. Good Fit Careers provides you with the tools, methodologies, and techniques to focus your search and define the goals for your upcoming search. Ryan’s empathetic and human centered approach focuses on helping you rationalize and understand what has been a good fit for you in the past, so you can decide what might be a good fit for your future.

I consistently make it to the second or third round interviews, but I have not yet been successful in landing an offer for a job that I am excited about. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Can you help me refine my approach so I can land a job that is a good fit for me?

Yes! From your resume, to defining your search strategy, to refining your interview skills, Good Fit Careers can help you build your frame of reference, develop your understanding, and polish your approach to landing a job that is a great fit for you. Inspiring confidence in the people you’re interviewing with, helping them see how you fit with their team, and providing the evidence your new team needs to understand your impact is a delicate and complicated process.

Being in a job that is no longer a good fit can be soul crushing.


Staying with a company that is no longer a good fit for you can have a dramatic effect on not only you, but can negatively affect your friends, family, and all of those who care about you.


Finding a great new job can be a frustrating, confusing, and painful process even if you’re exceptionally qualified. You don’t have to go it alone, we are here to help.


After 10 years on the recruiting side, Ryan found he had a passion for helping candidates find their way, tell their stories, and deliver great interviews. He found that he loved spending time helping great people prepare for their interviews, and had a strong desire to help set those people up for success in their careers.


In 2019 Ryan switched sides and started coaching full time with a focus on sharing his recruiting experiences, perspectives, and insights with people preparing to make a change. Ryan believes in a win and help win mentality, treating others the way you would want to be treated, and focuses on helping people build their frame of reference so they can make their own well informed decisions.


Working with a great company, with outstanding colleagues, in a role that is objectively a good fit for you can be a wonderful experience. Work doesn’t have to suck. Let us help you find your way.

About Me

Ryan is an Executive Recruiter turned Career Coach who helps people make the most of their career transitions. In short, Ryan teaches people how to find and land new jobs that are a good fit for them.

Ryan’s professional experience spans two decades with roles focused on Retained Exclusive Executive Search with Korn Ferry, through in house Talent Acquisition with a pre-IPO advertising technology company, and General Management of a premiere staffing firm based in Austin, TX.

His diverse hiring experience has informed his perspective on what constitutes an effective resume, a realistic job search strategy, a compelling interview, and a reasonable negotiation stance.

In 2019, Ryan chose to take his skills in a new direction, helping executives prepare to transition out of the companies that are no longer a good fit for them. Ryan’s passion lies in teaching others how to leave soul-crushing environments and find companies and roles that are objectively a good fit.


Choosing to work with Ryan was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my career. Ryan is easy to talk to, knowledgeable on every aspect of the job market, and he is very efficient. He answered every question I had and made the time to coach me when I needed it. Thanks to Ryan, I started hearing back from companies within the day when I had previously not heard back at all. The resume that Ryan created tells my story in a much clearer way, but it still feels like me. 


I would (and already have) highly recommend Ryan for anyone that just needs some help navigating today’s job market – he knows what they’re looking for, and how to bridge the gap between what they are looking for and what you’re looking for.

 Ryan helped me find my confidence again by asking questions to remind me of what I have done throughout my career and believe in myself again. Ryan worked with me to enhance my resume and LinkedIn profile, and to improve my interview and negotiating skills. Ryan knows how to ask the right questions that challenge you to think differently about yourself and your accomplishments without you even realizing that he’s doing it. In every conversation I felt like I was the only person Ryan was working with – his thoughtful patience, probing questions, and experience as a recruiter make him an amazing coach. I recommend Ryan to anyone who is looking to stand out in the recruiting process and who needs help figuring out what the next step is and how best to get there.

After a successful 20+ year career with the company that hired me fresh out of college, it was time for something new. Prior to connecting with Ryan, I hadn’t updated my resume since graduating nor had I kept up with the ever-changing digital job search landscape. Within a few weeks, Ryan provided me with a rock star resume, an aggressive search strategy, the skills to navigate today’s job market and the confidence to pull it all together.


Rarely does someone exceed my expectations in the manner Ryan did. He is very approachable, impeccably professional and his guidance through the career space is first-class.
