Dr. Karen Gurney was born, raised, and lives in Cleveland Ohio with her husband, two Goldendoodles, and a Papillon. As a Clevelander, she grew up living with the decline and rebirth of a city that displaced thousands of professionals. This fostered her interest in urban economics, workforce development, and how to get people jobs. Since then she has worked with clients across the nation and world.
Dr. Gurney is known as the 'fixer.' She treats the job search like a sales and marketing pipeline funnel. The results are measurable and transparent. Her book Stacked achieved Amazon's 'Hot New Trending' release in its first month with 45+ reviews and is touted as the modern What Color is Your Parachute. She currently has eight online classes that teach career and business strategies in over 100 countries assisting over 13,000 students in their career pursuits with over 500 reviews. Her LinkedIn page contains over 30 client testimonials.
As the Director of Outplacement of Career IQ, she leverages a Doctorate in Economic and Workforce Development, a Masters in Business Administration, and has 20 years of combined experience in executive search consulting, career coaching, and human resources
