Get the help you need to advance your career

Finding the right job isn’t easy. As a Certified Career Services Provider, I enjoy assisting clients through each step of the process, from career exploration and assessments, to the development of job search skills like networking, resume, and interviewing, and finally to managing multiple offers and negotiating salary.

I’ve helped hundreds of customers explore career options, become career ready, engage in experiential learning, and successfully launch their careers. I’ve helped clients land jobs at top firms like Bain & Co, Microsoft, Google, Disney, Honeywell, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo Securities, and many others.

“I wanted to thank you for writing my resume for me. Tomorrow, I start my first day as a Development Associate for a local nonprofit organization that I knew of in my former school district. I finally feel like I am in the place and position where I need to be post-teaching. Thank you for creating a resume that translated my teaching skills for those outside of the classroom!”
