Stories of people inspired by Karen to stay the course and discover their ultimate career path.
"Job hunting and interviewing can feel like a daunting process and having a coach like Karen guiding you through from resume prep to interview prep increases your confidence, keeps you focused on the goals and ongoing steps, and keeps you motivated so you can keep your momentum going."
"Karen was referred to me by a former colleague in September. I was at a critical crossroad in my career and I was at a loss on where to begin. Although I have 30 years experience as a Senior Executive building IT organizations, being on the other end of the recruiting process was relatively new to me, and selling myself is not one of my strong suits."
"Karen helped me secure a senior level role with a financial services company that has very high standards and an extremely robust recruitment process. She worked with me from the start to help develop and refine my resume ensuring it highlighted relevant skills and experience."
