Meet Your Coach

NextCareer Coaching founder Elizabeth Borelli has remained a top-ranked career counselor for Lee Hecht Harrison since 2016. She leverages a BA in Psychology and ICF Coaching Credential with multiple accreditations to boost her client’s positivity, resilience, and successful landing rates.

On the road to finding her calling, elizabeth worked in high tech marketing, started, grew and sold a business, published a book, created an app before finally earning her ICF Coaching certification. Along this windy road she has learned some things:

  • You don’t need to invest in spendy certifications to explore new career opportunities, you may change course before you have a chance to use them.
  • There are so many options for purposeful work it can be hard to choose just one, but it’s a good idea to do it anyway.
  • The biggest roadblock to success is self-confidence.
  • We all have the potential to achieve your dreams, the hardest part is taking that first step.

After finally settling in to my ‘True North’ as Martha Beck would say, I’ve proud to say over the past 4 years I’ve had the privilege of helping hundreds of job seekers to turn their goals into reality.


Clarity around career goals, a compelling resume tailored to the needs of the market, strong professional brand and online profile, the confidence to stand in your value, networking strategies that drive referrals, executive-level interview strategies, salary negotiation and follow up plans.

You’ll learn time management and productivity best practices mapped to your individual needs, with time to prioritize self-care best practices built into your routine.

Use informational interview strategies to identify the pressing problems you solve and define your unique value.


  1. A targeted, ATS-compliant resume
  2. An online brand highlighting your unique value
  3. Optimized LinkedIn Profile
  4. Networking action plan
  5. Easy to update cover letter template
  6. Interview tips sheet and (in-person and remote) practice sessions.


What Our Clients Say

I could never have been this successful in my job search without your support and guidance. Your expertise is outstanding! I really appreciate all that you did to help me through this very difficult transition!

Kari Hungold

Coaching client

Elizabeth’s coaching not only provided interview tools and tips but with each conversation we had I was filled with renewed optimism and a better understanding of the job market and the challenges that I faced.  In addition to the job search process and interview preparation, Elizabeth transformed my approach to leadership. Through her I am now in a better position to be an effective and trusted leader.  I am currently in the final stages of interviews for a position that would be a great fit and I am not sure if I would have come this far without Elizabeth’s encouragement. 


Registered Nurse

You have been very helpful Elizabeth.  Like dropping a stone into the water, you create wonderful ripples when you help people.  I think your positiveness and confidence booster comments were incredibly helpful.  It is a tough blow to the self-esteem getting laid off.  You supplied the right Band-Aids.

Why Career StoryBook Works

Career Storybook is a community of professional career coaches and counselors working with teams pursuing a common mission. We offer a collection of courses, activities, and success groups to take you from zero to happily employed. Relationship-based learning using reflective activities beats doing it on your own any day.

Career development can be self-directed (‘free’) or with a career coach (‘expensive’). We use an online group-based model that focuses on your needs and goals. Career Coaching is an investment in yourself. Career Storybook makes that investment accessible.

Personalized Learning

Our programs develop you as a person, a professional, or citizen while meeting your individual goals and interests. We offer personally meaningful learning experiences, and what is meaningful is engaging. And what is engaging has a deeper and more long-lasting impact.

Small Group Coaching

All our courses and groups have limited enrollment to ensure you get the attention you need and to foster trusting relationships necessary for you to risk growing. Mutual accountability drives creativity, problem-solving, and productivity. Coaches provide guidance while your group sustains your attitude and altitude.

Blended Delivery

We use the best of both learning mediums: online self-paced programs provide you the flexibility of time and place while saving travel and costs. Face-to-face or video meetings enable complex conversations, rewarding activities, and relationship development.

Interactive Programs

When you apply your new knowledge, skills, and perspective to interactive projects, you deepen your learning, your engagement, and have some good fun too. We use a variety of strategies: Problem-based learning, role plays, case studies, gamification, and fictionalization.
