As a software, mechanical, and manufacturing engineer, I designed and developed a lot of products and processes.

Now I build people.

This is where my joy and professional satisfaction comes from—being a part of helping others succeed and grow.

Every person is unique and has different challenges. I can’t solve every problem, but have been able to assist people in many ways including:

  • Finding increased career fulfillment. The grass is not always greener on the other side, but sometimes it is. We can explore the “stay or go” question and help you be in a better spot to succeed either way.
  • Dealing with unemployment or underemployment. You are a solid professional with skills to bring to the table that aren’t being put to use. Let’s change that together.
  • Getting clarity and exploring new career possibilities. Engineers are versatile and have many directions they could take their careers. Let’s get clear on what’s truly important to you so you can create a career you love.
  • Leadership and personal development. Starting from a foundation of mindsets, we can work together to change how you see yourself and the people around you, building critical leadership skills along the way.

For years, I have had the pleasure of supporting engineers and software pros from new grads to executives. Having been on the front lines in the technical world, I have been able to map out the necessary skills for becoming a quality leader in the field.

When you work with me as your coach, you work with someone who has been where you are, and has the skills to get you where you want to go.

I would love to learn about you and the challenges you face. Please reach out to me on LinkedIn or email me at jeff@morethaneng.com.

Jeff is an excellent mentor for anyone who needs engineering career guidance. He has walked through many aspects of a job search such as improving your personality, how to properly engage employers systematically, and to properly understand employers at a personal level. Thank you Jeff, I truly appreciate the time you spent guiding us.

Mechanical Engineer

In the short time Jeff mentored me on the nuances of job hunting, interviewing, and resume building it was apparent that his expertise and attention to detail were unmatched. Before our meetings I was unaware of the common mistakes some make when presenting their qualifications that honestly one tends to overlook when hastily preparing a CV or talking with a hiring manager. Since then I feel more prepared and confident with how to present myself to any interviewer and I highly recommend him to anyone willing to spruce up their skills in the job hunting game.

Sean T.

Software Engineer

Jeff is such an effective, nurturing coach. I can’t thank Jeff enough for what he did for me. Jeff helped me to successfully execute my interviews and aided me in how to ask the right questions. He taught me what not to do in an interview, how to network in today’s job market, and encouraged me to do my best. Jeff was always accessible whenever I had any questions or was feeling discouraged. He always exhibited such enthusiasm and positive energy during our sessions. His 1:1 consultations gave me the confidence to find success in my career track. He is a real inspiration to me, and his coaching technique has been invaluable.

Product Quality Engineer

It’s rare that you come across a person like Jeff and it just got even better having him as my mentor. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jeff over the course of eight months, during which he effortlessly coached me towards building critical thinking skills. I’m particularly impressed by Jeff’s ability to give me a different perspective on things that mattered most to me. He helped overcome cognitive and confirmation bias and focus on objective truth as a basis for building oneself. I particularly enjoyed take-home exercises which made me tick and benefitted me in the long run. Jeff brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience and I’m very certain that anyone would get a lot of value from his coaching. It is a pleasure having you as my mentor and I look forward to working with you in the years to come.
