Angel McCormack
Career Counselor

Angel holds a Master of Science degree in Career Counseling, is certified in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and has authored a Career Counseling Theory as well as articles regarding how to deliver the most effective distance counseling. Her full theoretical approach is a Humanistic mix of Existential, Person Centered, Gestalt, and Behaviorism schools of thought.

Since January 2006 Angel has counseled over 900 MBA students and alumni at UC Davis Graduate School of Management. She provides professional career counseling to the Part Time Students in the Bay Area and Sacramento Programs.

Her primary goal is to impart life-changing career self efficacy and inspiration to her clients by providing empathic coaching, personalized guidance and finely tuned career search resources. Helping people create manageable action plans, achieve greater understanding of the job market and how to best present their accomplishments has resulted in hundreds of satisfying careers for her clients.

Cornerstone to her success is the remote style of counseling she pioneered for the busy schedules of the part time populations: a highly effective system of counseling that takes each client through every step of the career development process (self assessment, marketing materials, networking strategies, job search, interviewing and negotiations). Keeping meticulous case notes is key to effective counseling of large case loads over time, as she is working with 100’s of students at any given time, in all stages of their career development processes.

Accomplishments include having proactively overhauled the Graduate School of Management’s Career Development web site in 2010; created the first ever online Career Development Handbook for the Part Time programs; co-created first ever Webinar Series for the incoming Full Time Day class in 2011; and administers SmartSite Assignments for incoming Full Time Day and MPAc Students.

In addition to her work at UC Davis, Angel has had a private practice in Career Counseling for over a decade. She has also been in the Multi-Family sector of commercial real estate since 2003 and has been creating and executing the Apartment Advisory Team’s marketing strategy since February 2006. Since that time they have closed 32 Multi-Family transactions worth over $215 million dollars. Previous employers include: Bank of America, Marcus & Millichap, Coldwell Banker and Keller Williams.
