Scott's Story

Scott Kukowski started his career in the U.S. Navy where he worked as a data processor & systems administrator. Scott lived in Silicon Valley and spent 10 years working in Information Technologies Management.

Burning Out

Scott moved into Customer Support Management, leading teams in notable companies such as Netscape and Hyperion Solutions. Scott stayed in the support industry for 13 years and led teams in 5 worldwide locations. However, one day, Scott realized that being an executive was not for him – he was steadily burning out!

Taking Charge 

Scott decided it was time for a change and left Hyperion. He purchased a Mr. Handyman franchise and, although he did his due diligence and researched the franchise, he didn’t take the time to understand why he burned out at Hyperion. Scott’s business was successful, but he wasn’t happy and started burning out again. Running a business was stressful, so he decided to make a big change: selling his business and moving to Austin, Texas.

New Career Path 

Scott went to a career coach who helped him realize a new career path: Career Coaching. Coaching would involve a lot of training which he could draw on from his years in multiple industries. Best of all, it would fulfill his desire to help people. This career path was a great fit!

Since 2008, Scott has helped many people explore new career paths and/or ready themselves for their next job. He has received outstanding praise from his clients. Scott has an extensive background in Military, Government Contracting, High Tech, Finance, and Accounting. He also has in-depth knowledge of many career paths such as Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, Executive Management, Product Development, Program / Project Management, and others.

What clients are saying about Scott...

I've been working as an independent consultant for quite some time (and truly enjoy it) but have decided to take a different direction with my career. The last time I interviewed for a job was 10 years ago - so I realized I needed expert guidance and assistance. I'm so very glad that I found Scott Kukowski and Wolfgang Career Coaching. Scott blew me away. He's very sharp and knowledgeable about current trends in jobs and industries, hiring practices, and how to be found by recruiters and hiring managers. He quickly understood what I've been doing professionally and where I now want to go with my career. All of my sessions with Scott got me fired up about looking for a job and how to interview confidently and passionately. He taught me a lot; he called out areas for improvement in ways that motivated me to make useful changes. Sessions with Scott challenged me to think differently about the whole process of finding and interviewing for jobs. We went through a wonderfully rigorous process to produce a top-notch resume that tells a strong and compelling story connecting my career to the position that I'm pursuing -- in only 2 pages (I didn't think that would be possible before I worked with Scott). I highly recommend Scott and will gladly work with him again as the need arises. The fees are very reasonable, especially in light of the considerable value that the sessions have returned.

Frustrated with multiple interviews and just not closing the deal, I was hesitant to call a Career Coach. Scott Kukowski was spot on in our initial consultation and really opened my eyes to help me make a sound decision on my career direction. In a simple 30 minute conversation, Scott was able to show me areas of strengths and weaknesses in my resume, LinkedIn profile and interviewing "speak". Cannot say enough about the importance of that 1st call.
-- Gary F.
Scott Kukowski was instrumental in helping me secure my latest position. He is an incredibly knowledgeable career coach, well-versed in how the recruitment process works across large and small businesses, as well as how to structure your best approach to each job. Beyond his expert assessments of your resume, digital presence and interview performance (which were all tremendously valuable), Scott helps you clarify your employment goals so that you focus your career and job search efforts in the most effective direction. I highly recommend Scott for anyone looking for guidance, education or direct counsel on their career development or job search.
-- Adam P.
I never really knew what I was doing when it came to resume prep, Scott made it easy and simple. Austin, being the tech hub it is, was daunting to job search in. After months of no follow-ups from companies, the guidance from Scott helped land me a new position in the career direction I wanted to go. The reviews speak for themselves, but I highly recommend to anybody stuck in the mud in terms of career paths, visit these guys, and find out for yourself. As a side note, for those of you in the tech industry, Scott has the right background for you. I was fortunate to run across him, and those of you in the industry, should do the same.

I reached out to Scott after reading some of his reviews on Yelp for Wolfgang Career Coaching. Now, I wished that I had met with Scott sooner. Scott is very good at identifying your particular career problem(s) and guiding you through addressing them. I am inspired and empowered at the end of each session because I know that I am saving valuable time not having to face my career dissatisfaction alone and I am gaining tools I can use to move forward with my career growth. I consider myself an organized writer and a good speller but Scott showed me how to create impact when presenting my accomplishments in my resume. He also helped me make my resume stand out and be easier to read, which is key. This new resume really gets attention! Scott showed me how to use social networking effectively to present my professional accomplishments and interact with recruiters and hiring managers in ways that get results. He also showed me how to answer difficult interview questions with confidence through valuable techniques, preparation, and practice. I continue to see Scott whenever I have concerns about my career rather than waiting months or years to address them. I recommend to anyone to do the same.
-- David S.
I had three sessions with Scott Kukowski, one for resume review and two for LinkedIn. Scott's knowledge and expertise of the subject matter was apparent from the start. His presentations are well-organized and packed with useful information. No filler. He is available and ready to answer any of my questions.
