In today’s difficult-to-navigate work culture, it’s a tragedy to see so many young professionals waste precious years on the wrong career path, stuck in dead-end or unfulfilling jobs, or starting businesses unsuited to their talents and aspirations. Career coach Michelle Perchuk, founder and CEO of MTV Coaching, sees this phenomenon too often in today’s work landscape. That’s why it is her goal to guide college graduates and young professionals in choosing a career path that they will find rewarding.
Michelle founded MTV Coaching to give people a framework to get the results they want in their career transition. Michelle Perchuk’s distinctive career and educational background prove her expertise in this area. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from New York University and is an active member of the NYU Alumni Association. She has received a professional certification for Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance at Rutgers University. She is also a member of the ICF NJ Chapter Strategic Relationship Committee. The MTV Coaching founder is the author of an influential book on the state of contemporary recruiting and hiring practices, Swimming in the Talent Pool, the result of interviewing over 30 C-suite executives of companies like AIG, New York Times, Scholastic, and Citigroup.
Her career trajectory has given her the tools, vision, and key business connections vital to helping her clients find and pursue their true calling. At her positions in stellar global search firms such as Ajilon, Comsys, and Solomon Page, she recruited, counseled, and onboarded thousands of employees for elite companies like Citigroup, TIAA-CREF, Sotheby’s, Bank of America, AIG, and many others.
In addition to MTV Coaching, Michelle has extensive business experience. In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, she successfully launched her own business, NDP Global, Inc., where she developed innovative strategies to place qualified candidates at Fortune 500 companies that were struggling to find the right talent. This experience has given her an inside track on hiring practices of organizations and her clients benefit from this greatly because it is directly adjacent to her coaching framework.
MTV Coaching has been consistently praised for how quickly and objectively it can identify clients’ strengths, clarify their goals, and set them on the right course to prosper in their career endeavors, saving them untold time, frustration, and lost opportunity. Many of Michelle’s clients have come to the realization that investing in a coach has come back to them ten times in value.
That’s why Michelle has dedicated more than two decades of her career in successful recruitment, coaching, corporate networking, and personal experience toward helping dissatisfied professionals and recent grads land their dream job or launch their ideal startup.
What’s next for the MTV Coaching founder? She plans to build an affordable educational program established for students and college graduates that will give them the tools they need to land their first job after college. Additionally, she plans to invest her presence in the investor community, helping them protect their investments through leadership coaching. Most of all, she plans to do what she does best for as long as she can: coaching professionals on how to progress their career and how to design an effective career plan using her framework.
