Career Innovator educates on job search in the digital age
A nationally recognized author and speaker on all things job search, Hannah Morgan educates from experience, research and embedding herself in what’s trending in the career industry.
Grounded in the basics of the executive search industry with early exposure from her father who owned a high-level executive search firm, Hannah considered a career in law when she graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University. Working in a field that wasn’t a good match for her ultimately ended up being a key ingredient for the guidance she gives to job seekers today: Don’t do what doesn’t work for you.
Switching her focus to the careers industry, Hannah’s expertise gained momentum after holding several positions in Human Resources, Outplacement Services, Workforce Development and Career Services, equipping her with a 360 degree perspective on job search topics.
Keeping a tight ear to the ground in her field of expertise, Hannah realized that technology, strategy and even resume deliverables were morphing rapidly, shifting the way people find and land jobs. The explosive reliance and relevance of social media and online visibility, in general, has radically changed the job search landscape.
Hannah founded Career Sherpa which blended her career expertise with her love of writing, speaking and social media. Her mission is to educate professionals through her articles and presentations about how to maneuver through the often treacherous job search process. Her sage advice has since been featured in Huffington Post, Business Insider, Fast Company, Forbes, AOL Jobs, The Muse, Monster, USA Today, Yahoo Finance and Money magazine. She writes a weekly column in U.S. News & World Report.
Hannah helps job seekers move beyond using traditional “vanilla” resumes, which sadly don’t showcase incredible talent and get lost in the sea of resume sameness./ Instead she advocates the necessity of online visibility and personal branding as imperative pieces to landing a job.
Author of The Infographic Resume, Hannah’s simple step-by-step guide teaches how to create eye-catching visual resumes and portfolios to get a hiring manager’s attention in seconds! Hannah also co-authored Social Networking for Business.
Hannah develops job search-related content by sifting through, condensing and highlighting the most relevant information on personal branding, reputation management, search strategies, effective resumes, interviewing tips and more. Her content helps job seekers stay ahead of the curve when seeking employment.

With a Twitter following of over 41,000, @Career Sherpa is recognized in the social media job search arena as a top resource for job search. She is highlighted as a Top Influencer in lists published by The Daily Muse, Job Search Bible, YouTern, Campus to Career, LifeHack, LinkUp, CEO World Magazine, Forbes, and Monster.com.
