UpShot Career Services, the First Nationwide Career Coaching Solution for Job Seekers

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - October 11, 2007) - UpShot Career Services (UpShot) today announced the first nationwide career coaching solution for job seekers. CEO and Head Coach Dr. Reginald Morris started UpShot to give the average job seeker an affordable way to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. A study released this month from the International Coach Federation and conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, estimates that the revenue generated by the coaching industry globally is close to $1.5 billion.

"Career coaching gives job seekers the edge. The reason career coaching is one of the fastest growing industries is because with these services, it empowers job seekers by giving them the control to accelerate their success, save money, earn higher wages and reduce their job search time," said Morris.

"Your career determines your lifestyle. It dictates the car you'll drive, the neighborhood you'll live in, where your kids will go to school and how you'll be able to retire. Before UpShot, career coaching was viewed as an expensive luxury only for executives. We've priced our services for the average job seeker. Why would you turn over your fate to someone who isn't even working for you, but for the employer? UpShot gives the job seeker someone on his team -- a professional coach -- to assist with job search and negotiations, providing professional support to ensure that the upshot -- the outcome -- will be nothing less than success."

According to the April 2007 issue of Money, "About 60 percent of the more than 12,000 people surveyed said they were considering switching careers or had recently done so, echoing economists' forecasts that the multiple-career work life is about to become the rule."

"Today's job seekers will likely find themselves changing jobs every three to five years. Whether it's a new job, career advancement or the need to find the right work-life balance, UpShot clients will stand out among other job seekers," said Morris.

In the past 15 years, Morris has helped over 1,600 individuals find jobs. He began helping others find work after the L.A. Riots in 1992, while serving as founder and executive director of the Youth Job Awareness Project, a non profit organization created to introduce inner city young adults to the work ethic and help them find jobs. He successfully helped job applicants land positions at Xerox, ARCO, Countrywide Funding, Pepsi and many other companies.

UpShot has coaches throughout the US and offers flexible coaching sessions via the telephone and the Internet. Contact UpShot at (513) 619-6360 or www.upshotcs.com.
