Chief Executive Officer
The Career Strategy Group

100 Conversations for Career Success –

With job search management expertise as an award-winning career innovator and résumé writer, master networker, and Fortune 500 corporate insider with flagship firms such as The Walt Disney Company and America Online, Laura M. Labovich is often affectionately referred to in the media as “a job seeker’s best friend.”

As Chief Executive Officer of The Career Strategy Group (www.thecareerstrategygroup.com), a boutique career management, outplacement firm, and Lincolnshire company, headquartered in Bethesda, MD, Laura’s contagious enthusiasm and powerful methodology make the perfect recipe for getting job seekers unstuck in their job search. Laura and her team at The Career Strategy Group empower job seekers to develop proactive, targeted job search marketing plans that increase momentum and achieve breakthrough results. Laura is known for saying that she was “born and raised professionally at Disney.

After receiving her first promotion out of her polyester costume, she recruited nationwide for the highly competitive Walt Disney World College Program, led the recreation recruiting and staffing efforts for both Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach water parks, and staffed up Disney’s Animal Kingdom for its inaugural launch. At America Online, she developed and launched AOL’s college internship program, hiring more than 100 MBA interns in its first year, and coached hundreds of employees – from entry-level to executive – on how to fit in, stand out, and move up in the company and in their careers. Laura’s national job search expertise, passionate delivery, and easy-to-implement approach has garnered attention from such national news media as The Washington Post, Sirius XM Radio, Fox 5 (DC), NBC 6 (Miami), U.S. News and World Report, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Yahoo, and Monster.com, to name a few. And as a former amateur nightclub singer, she certainly knows how to tackle, inspire, and entertain a tough crowd.

Laura is also the author of the newly launched job search course through Pearson Workforce Development, HIRED! The Ultimate Job Search Course, a 40+ hour online self-paced course that teaches job seekers how to land a job faster!
