Camille Block is a Career Coach with a diverse background spanning multiple industries in the fields of retained executive search recruiting, sales, and marketing. Camille’s professional highlights include business sales for a large health insurance company, sales and marketing for an upscale local lifestyle magazine, and wholesale financial sales to brokers with high net-worth clients. In executive search, she worked as a recruiter in every aspect of the search process for C-Suite, VP, and Director level positions in a variety of industries for mid-market businesses with revenues from $500M - $1B.
A natural connector and change-maker, Camille has always enjoyed helping people navigate their career goals and encouraged them to go after their goals, while serving as a bridge to connect them to others in her network. As a result, Camille combined her personal passion in advising and helping others with her professional experience in executive recruiting and sales to form Connectivity – a concierge-style career consulting practice, targeting people in a life or career transition as well as provide contract recruiting services to businesses looking for a talent acquisition expert to help attract top talent on a short-term basis.
She also works as an Executive Career Coach for Lee Hecht Harrison, a global HR Solutions and career transition company, to provide recently laid off executives and professionals a myriad of coaching services for their transition to their next position. Within this context, she also is a facilitator of executive roundtable groups and a workshop trainer on topics affecting executives and how to work with recruiters.
Camille has been married over 29 years, lives in Thousand Oaks, CA and has three mostly grown children – a married daughter in North Carolina who has her MSW and counsels foster teens, a daughter almost finished with college with her sights on law school, and a son in his last year of high school. Several years of her career were spent as a stay-at-home parent raising a family and she understands first-hand the challenges of re-entering the workplace after this important season.
Finding herself in an empty nest transition, she has also found solace in writing as a freelancer and is hoping to publish her first book addressing her journey with her quadriplegic/disabled brother. One of her personal essays was recently published in Grown & Flown, a popular web-based subscription publication centered on parenting older children. Camille holds a B.A. in Social Science with a Business Management minor from Pepperdine University.
