leading companies and organizations.

"You are superrrrrr amazing …

I had no clue ... about the opportunities available for educators. You exposed me to better! ..."

Brooke (Virginia Administrator)

"Until I met with Broils Consulting Group, I had no idea about the vast opportunities in the

education field [outside of the school systems].

I learned that I do have a valuable skill set that is appreciated and respected ..."

Broils Consulting Group CTR Network new levels every turn1.png

Our organization was founded by a former K-12 teacher and administrator that transitioned to a mind-blowing career as an education executive 

and later as a consultant and advisor

with some of the world's leading education companies, Wall Street Firms, children's toy companies, government organizations, etc.

The founder has a deep admiration and unwavering respect for the world's educators.

Whether your education career spans three years, five years, twenty-five years, or forty years, you've ALL made contributions to the lives of young people and paid your dues. 


The decision to leave or to stay in the profession is ultimately yours, and we respect that.


FIRST, we encourage you to increase your awareness about the depth of incredible career options that align with your skills AND 

learn key strategies needed to leverage your talent to land that dream job

THEN make

an informed decision. 

Navigating the private sector job market (job markets outside of the school system) is vastly different from the school system and has caused 1,000s

of educators to get STUCK

or being forced to settle

for less than they deserve.

The last thing that you want to do is make the WRONG choice based upon limited information and what you've read on the internet or remain in a career that is no longer the best fit for you and your family.

We also want to help protect retirees from struggling financially during

the golden years.

For many there is a 10-year gap between pension and eligibility for social security.

There are incredible part-time careers, and consulting opportunities to fill those gaps and help provide the financial freedom and security

that you deserve.

There are hundreds of amazing careers available to educators at ALL levels,

including rewarding and lucrative careers with great salaries where you can still impact young lives in great occupations outside of the school systems if that remains of interest

OR numerous careers within the private industry that countless educators love!

 Life's too short to be unhappy, unhealthy, unsure, or unfulfilled.

"Your time is limited, so please don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions

drown out your own inner voice…

You’ve got to find what you love. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life,

and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.

 And the only way to do great work is to

love what you do.

If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.

You’ll know when you find it.

Don’t settle ..."

~ Steve Jobs


Until I met Broils Consulting Group, I had no idea about the vast opportunities in the

education field.


I learned that I do have a valuable skill set that is appreciated and respected ...

Shelly worked with me and helped me improve my job-seeking and interview skills.


Shelly and her associates will help craft an outstanding resume that will stand out above your competition.


I was able to find employment ... for an educational consulting company even before the completion of my work and study with Broils Consulting.


If you are looking to leave and wonder how to do it successfully,

 I highly recommend

 making the investment."

      Patrick (Educator Retiree)
     (Pat was HIRED for this role 
         over  60 other applicants)

I was exposed to the Broils Consulting Group about one year after I retired with 31 years experience! I wanted to pursue entrepreneurship opportunities.


I was an exceptional educator and had a rare salary of over 100k!


But I wanted something different.


I was very unaware of all the opportunities that I could have applied for until I attended a webinar with them.


I was shocked and amazed! And immediately wished I had received this information sooner! 


The Broils Consulting Group has all the tools to provide solutions to any educator seeking different avenues. I give my highest endorsement to The Broils Consulting Group!


There is no other group out there like it! 

Maria ( Retiree & Former Chicago Educator) 

"After almost 2 years of searching on my own for a career outside of the classrooms with no luck;

I came across Shelly and the Broils Consulting Group.  It was like finding a light in the dark! 

I finally felt that someone out there not only understood my struggle but had a plan for moving forward.

They provided the encouragement, motivation, and direction I needed to achieve my goal.  I got the job offer of my dreams! 

Thank you to Shelly and the Broils Consulting Group for shining your light ​and giving me the confidence that I needed to 

believe it was possible!”

Steph (Former Tennessee Educator)

What other careers can I pursue with
my education degree(s)? 

Educators have so many MORE career options!

​Educators possess a diverse set of skills, a wealth of talents, and experience that are transferable and highly marketable outside of school systems. Over 60+ incredible careers beyond the schools with 100s of leading organizations and companies that need K-12 Educators.


This includes a plethora of incredible, rewarding and lucrative careers in private sector education markets and beyond, already within reach and many of which do NOT require additional college degrees or certifications.

Unfortunately, far too many transitioning educators find themselves struggling to get hired becoming trapped and stuck in a career that is no longer the right fit, or feeling forced to settle

for a new career that is less than they truly deserve, which can have detrimental implications for

everyone involved. 

Other feel restricted to a narrow career path with very few options. 

While for others it can takes YEARS to find and land the RIGHT career match.


The struggle is often not because they lack the transferable skills and qualifications.   

For many, it's largely due to a gap in their knowledge of the private industry job market, hiring 

processes and how to navigate an unfamiliar market.


Really, is searching for a job in a different field or industry that different? 


Yes, the job search game has changed, especially with advances in technology! But, it can be mastered

in a few key steps.

Job Search Game has Changed_Broils Consulting Group.png

The private sector job market and hiring process VASTLY differs from our school systems. As a result, millions of educators get stuck in a career that is no longer the best fit OR they are steered toward narrow career paths: tutors, college professors, MLM sales, real estate, instructional or curriculum designer, taxi driver, drop shipping, starting over in entry-levels careers, etc ...


Sound familiar? 

All of the occupations listed above are noble professions, but you have many more career options.

Sure, you can land just any ole job without improving job search and career transition skills, but you deserve more.

To transition at faster rates and to higher levels, learning those essential job search and career transition readiness skills is quite often necessary and critical to your success.

Are you career transition ready?

Did you know that:

Nearly 60% of job openings are hidden or unadvertised to the general public.

Do you know how and where to find them? 

If you apply in these 5 months of the year, your job hunt will take much longer.

Are you aware of which ones?

Nearly 70% of resumes are rejected for each job vacancy. 

(Source: LinkedIn, Top Resume) 

Does your resume meet private industry specifications? Can it bypass an ATS (Applicant Tracking System: those resume screening bots)?


Educators are unequivocally talented and have a vast skillset

but college degrees and credentials are not the only things that we need to land a great (not mediocre) career beyond the school systems.

Don't let your current career transition and job-search skills become a barrier

and prevent you from discovering that new dream career or incredible consulting opportunity that

you so greatly deserve.

Yes, the job search game has changed and is vastly different from our school systems,

but it can be effectively navigated by implementing a few key and easy-to-learn strategies.

You are superrrrrr amazing … I had no
clue until I met you that I have options

You exposed me to better.

I had no clue until I met you about the opportunities available for educators.  These options helped me to discover that I can still work with young ones, but also have a positive direct impact on teachers in an education technology implementation

{private sector} career...


I would highly recommend them to anyone who’s serious about getting the best fit position to make an investment…


Shelly you are superrrrrrrrrrrr amazing!!!
