What our clients say about us

  • District HR Manager
  • Client VP, Pharmaceutical Organization
  • CHRO, Retail Cooperative
  • Senior Executive, Insurance and Risk Management Industry
  • National Sales Director
  • HR Leader, Food & Beverage Industry

I do want to say a sincere thank you for your advice and guidance throughout this process. I am not going to lie, I was extremely skeptical at first as to how efficacious it would be. However, even after our first meeting, I started to see and feel how much of a difference it made. From the resume and LinkedIn profile building, to the interview prep, I became a much stronger candidate. I honestly believe that I may not have caught the eye of Whole Foods without all of the support. I am grateful to H&M for sponsoring these services and grateful that you were assigned to me as my coach. Your flexibility, accessibility, and honesty were truly impactful.
