Why I do it

Four years ago, my life looked very different. I was empty and burnt out in my high-stress consulting job, scrolling through LinkedIn job postings, wondering if I would EVER find a job that seemed even remotely purposeful. Even more, I struggled to believe that God even wanted me to find fulfillment in my career.

Since I thought God only calls people to be full-time missionaries, I worried that my giftings in business left me in the unlucky majority who have no other purpose than to “stay, pray, and pay” to support those who do the “real” work that matters.

But everything changed the day I studied what the Bible ACTUALLY says about work and our unique assignments in life. In the 4 years since, I left my job in tech at a global consulting firm and founded The Called Career LLC, a career coaching practice specialized in helping Christians discern their calling and practically land a job (or start business) that allows them to fulfill it.

My work has been featured in Forbes, I’m one of the youngest startup mentors with the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship, and my podcast, Answer the Call with Kelsey Kemp, has over 15,000+ downloads.

Frequently Asked Questions

You go through the strategy guides (combo of written and audio) in your client portal, use the provided tools and templates, and complete the action items I assign. Join your weekly coaching calls with me, follow the process, and get results.

how does it work?

1. Failure is not an option. Period. I provide endless support at each step of the job search process. If you’re following the action items, joining our calls, and vocalizing your needs if you feel stuck, there is no room for you to fail.

2. I designed this class-of-its-own service to provide the most comprehensive support you can find, covering:
Theology: providing biblical answers to important questions of faith that often come up for Christ-followers who          want to faithfully discern God's will for their lives, not just their own.
Mindset: no matter how much practical help and encouragement you get, insecurities, doubts, and limiting                  beliefs often run the show and keep us stuck in procrastination if unaddressed. This is why I'm incredibly                      passionate about helping my clients remove the root of longstanding insecurities through my work as a                      practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, so you can embody genuine confidence and a bias toward action. 
Clarity: personality tests are great, but they're not going to help you find your calling. Through our work                      together, you'll gain a tangible understanding of how to craft a career with a day-to-day reality you *actually*            find to be impactful and rewarding, based on who God uniquely created you to be.
Strategy: of course, I wouldn't be a career coach if I didn't know the practicals behind making you the most                polished candidate your future boss has seen. Modern strategies to optimize your resume, LinkedIn, networking,          interview prep, and salary negotiation - all here.

How long does it typically take for someone to land the job they want?

I was honestly a bit anxious before meeting and working with Kelsey. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do in my life but I could not succinctly put it into words. My biggest challenge was feeling like I had an overwhelming number of options to choose from.

Now my career is a complete 180! Kelsey has proven to be invaluable in helping me discover these specific things that I can do right now to build a career/resume down the line. She helped me brainstorm and flesh out ideas for a career and we eventually settled on three great options for roles that all contribute toward my mission with the best of my natural abilities.

One of the many things Kelsey helped me with is battling imposter syndrome. I've had it for years. Kelsey was able to help me overcome that fearful voice in my head that was holding me back. Another great insight that I have learned from Kelsey is networking for mentorships. I always feel out of place or needy asking for help, but Kelsey has an excellent template that walks each client through different ways for asking advice and keeping in touch.

My favorite part? Kelsey’s confidence in what she does (due to her experience and exemplary work ethic) which made me feel at ease. I knew I was in good hands from the first meeting to the last. She is unparalleled.

Client Success Stories

Stephane A.

When I began working with Kelsey, I felt paralyzed in my career. I was a year into a job I didn’t enjoy, questioning all school and career decisions I had made previously, and had no idea how or where to move on. With ease and confidence, Kelsey crafted a personalized process in which she asked me questions I had never considered and helped to unearth the passions and purposes driving me that I had never been able to articulate. 

I received clarity in my desired career path, empowerment to take steps onto that path, and reassurance that someone was in my corner the whole time. Kelsey cares deeply about helping others to discern their callings, and I would redo the entire process in a heartbeat.

Before coaching, I knew it was my time to leave. I had learned useful skills in my job, but it was getting to a point where I felt the longer I stayed, the more I was just building my auditing/technical accounting toolkit - an area I knew wasn't my long-term plan. The hard part was figuring out what my strengths and talents were and how to find a new job that could be a building block for where I want my career to progress.

Kelsey asked great questions that I hadn't even thought of. She was great at looking at every angle of a potential career opportunity and sharing feedback. And I can't thank Kelsey enough for how she went above and beyond with her support preparing for interviews, writing cover letters/resumes, and all other parts of job candidacy.

As a career coach, Kelsey looks out for your best interests and helps you uncover what you're good at and the type of role where you'll have the greatest fit. If you’re considering career coaching, know that it’s very low stakes. The cost of coaching (including time) is very minimal to the overall gain; it can absolutely jumpstart your career into a Calling!

Working with Kelsey was deeply refreshing. We began by exploring who I am and the aspects of myself that transcended my concept of a career at the time. We discussed the things I loved doing as a kid. The way I choose to spend my free time now. Those core values that shape my decisions whether I am aware of it or not, and the natural talents I possess that are unique to me. Kelsey challenged me to think deeper, exposing fears and helping me to move past them.

Having lost this sense in the post-grad grind, I now realize that I can have fun in my career if I engage my talents and gifts. Kelsey helped me uncover something infinitely more valuable than a new five-year plan. A sense of what I was wired to do, and a tangible career direction that agrees with the core of who I am. Working with Kelsey was one of the most defining decisions of my life, and I could not be more grateful for who she is!

kristina b.

I was in a fog. I wanted to make a good career decision. One that would connect my gifts and what I care about with how I spend my time. I had no idea how to get there though. A blind guess was my best guess. When I first considered working with Kelsey, I passed and chose to wade through my career choices on my own. After a considerable amount of time, I had made minimal progress and decided to give coaching a try. I figured if people seek professional coaching for fitness or finances, then meeting with someone to plan for my career couldn’t be a bad investment.

I am so glad I did. Kelsey kept me moving steadily to my goal on a healthy timeline. I came away from coaching able to make a confident, informed career decision with clear next steps. I had a hard plan for where to go and knew why I was going there. The future became a source of excitement instead of a well of anxiety. Now, I know why I’m at my new job and how it fits into what I care about. If you’re interested, don’t wait like I did!

I had done a lot of reflection and prep work in regards to developing my resume, LinkedIn profile and portfolio of sample work. But, I was now at a point where I identified three potential career paths but was stuck on which path to take. After doing career coaching, I got more clarity about the steps to take to determine where God was calling me to. The cool thing is that the opportunity He had for me ended up being one of those career paths but it came without me actively searching for it! But that's how God works when we take steps of faith.

The insights I've gained have given me the confidence and motivation to step out of my comfort zone and even potentially into leadership roles down the line. I accepted an offer to work for a missions-driven organization leveraging my instructional design expertise. Its mission aligns with my own passion of empowering and equipping underrepresented individuals with the knowledge and skills to gain equitable access to thriving careers.

When I reached out to Kelsey asking if she offered off-site career coaching, I did not realize just how impactful she would turn out to be in my journey to find a fitting career. Her natural gift for empathy and the genuine care she has for others allows her to make meaningful connections and impactful suggestions and guidance.

Kelsey has used her own career experiences and frustrations to create helpful, scripture-centered materials and tools for those struggling to find a well-suited career. Her encouragement to study the biblical definitions of "work," "gifts," "talents," and our "calling" as Christians and members of society helped me to find peace in God's plan for my life, both personally and in my career.

rebekah w.

I could not be more grateful for the time I spent receiving career coaching from Kelsey. Her eagerness to coach individuals through difficult decisions, curiosity to understand her clients, and willingness to both build and maintain relationships is unparalleled. My coaching sessions with her were often the highlights of my week and the coaching I received from her continues to help me make decisions and choices about who I am called to be in a career.

Before coaching, I felt overwhelmed by the countless career options and opportunities that seemed available post-grad. After just a few sessions with Kelsey, I was able to nail down the specifics of what I felt called to do, and I walked away with key takeaways on how exactly I could do that. If you are looking for guidance, direction, and coaching that WORKS, I could not recommend booking a session with Kelsey enough.

Entering the third year of my career, I was expecting nothing short of great things! I thought surely by year three I'd have things figured out and begin to make the impact I saw so much potential for in addition to finding the level of joy in my job I had always dreamed of having. Not the case. Work was more difficult and less enjoyable than expected despite the incredible mentors I had walking along side me. 

Enter Kelsey Kemp. Our video chats consistently brought about new questions and understanding that extended beyond my current circumstances to reach past where mentors had been before. Our calls not only brought hope but also tangible change.

cash f.

When thinking on my experience with Kelsey as my life coach, so many words come to mind to describe her. To put it simply, she is someone who was born to do this for a living. Each session with her was masterful journey, individually crafted to meet my every need for personal growth and for achieving my aspirations in life. My career is important to me, but I can honestly say that Kelsey guided me in completely changing my perspective on how I want to define my career. I no longer view my initiative to spread joy and inspire creativity as a lifelong pursuit as “just a dream” that has a shelf life. Kelsey has carefully constructed her methods into a craft that is both structured and imaginative.

She challenged me to look inside myself for the answers to all of my questions, and I learned that every obstacle is, in fact, a blessing in disguise. Kelsey is a tour de force in the profession that is career coaching. She coaches each client with an exuberant energy that cannot be topped and embraces the unique nature of each individual’s goals. I am so excited to proceed with my life and my career, both as a storyteller and as an advocate for creativity, because of Kelsey Kemp’s coaching.
