Paulette Fried, Principal - Sustaining Careers, Inc.
Career Coach and Professional Development Consultant
Beginning her career in human services management and consulting in Washington, D.C., Paulette later moved to Los Angeles where she successfully established and directed the western regional operation of a major national, not-for-profit housing corporation. Later, when grappling with her own career aspirations, Paulette realized and affirmed her true passion for combining her counseling skills with her knowledge of the business world to support others in their efforts to make informed and meaningful occupational choices.
This ability to help clients galvanize their confidence and motivation to reach their goals, and to boost their career satisfaction and contributions, has been a driving force behind Paulette’s work. She is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, but provides the wide range of Sustaining Careers’ services throughout the United States (see the Interactive Map to discover where her work has taken her.)
Ms. Fried is a graduate of the University of Michigan and holds a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Maryland, where she also took the core graduate courses as an MBA candidate. After pinpointing her own “right fit” career, Paulette received a graduate certificate in Career Education and Counseling from California State University, Northridge.
Ms. Fried is a Nationally Certified Career Counselor, a Board Certified Coach and a certified user of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator along with other valued diagnostic tools widely used in individual practice and corporate settings.
