FULL BIO

With an extraordinary passion for helping people make their careers work for them, Francine Bard Fabricant, MA, EdM helps people rethink their career opportunities and build careers that are personally meaningful and rewarding. She is a frequent speaker on career topics, addressing real-world concerns and offering practical ideas and solutions.

For over ten years, Francine has provided career counseling for individuals and developed and delivered career programs for community organizations and university settings. She is the lead author of Creating Career Success: A flexible Plan for the World of Work (Fabricant, Miller and Stark, 2014), a fully comprehensive career book and program. Francine was inspired to write the book to share the same powerful concepts and tools she uses in her courses and programs, along with some of the most current insights about success, technology, and today’s world of work.

Francine serves as a lecturer at Hofstra University Continuing Education and an adjunct instructor at NYIT. She has also served as a Career Counselor at the Columbia University Center for Career Education and as a Career Counselor and part-time faculty member at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). She delivers workshops, lectures, and seminars, and provides consultation on career programming for community organizations.

Personal development and self-esteem are long-time concerns Francine has addressed in her work, dating back to one of her earliest experiences serving as a Research Assistant for Gloria Steinem on her #1 best-seller, Revolution From Within: The Book of Self-Esteem. Francine has developed programs addressing such pivotal women’s career topics as work and pregnancy, work and motherhood, women’s career re-entry after time off for raising children, and women in the workplace. In addition, Ms. Steinem’s influence guided Francine to explore a deeper understanding of the challenges men and women both face in the workplace, such as a downturn economy, technological advances, family expectations, being a breadwinner, globalization, and work-family balance. Francine’s approach addresses the complex career issues faced by all of us, with timely, real-world solutions.

Francine is also committed to helping those in transition, and has volunteered with such organizations as Women in Need, Dress for Success, Lift Community Service, and more. She received a BA cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University as well as an MA in Organizational Psychology and EdM in Psychological Counseling, both from Teachers College, Columbia University. She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Board Certified Coach (BCC), a Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC), and has the designation of Master Career Counselor (MCC) from the National Career Development Association (NCDA). She has been featured in Counseling Today and her community-based workshops have been profiled by The New York Times.
