Testimonials

Anthony - Bates '13

I truly valued working with you. I believe that it was instrumental to my success in gaining employment. Your process helped me figure out exactly what I needed to do in order to improve my search process and make myself more attractive to potential employers. By working with you, I was able to significantly improve my resume, hone my interview skills, establish a social media presence, refine my job search, and gain essential networking skills. I would strongly recommend you to anyone looking to start their career out of college; even to people who believe that they know what it takes to land a job and have a solid understanding of the job market in their field.

I mentioned to you during the Boot Camp class that I was interested in interning at a recording studio in New York City. I actually got a job offer after interviewing at one of the studios I contacted because of your class!

Susie - Meryl's Mom

Lisa is a smart, pleasant, energetic person with whom it is easy to communicate. One of Lisa’s first clients was our daughter, Meryl, who is 25 years old and two years out of college. Meryl was looking for a new career path and Lisa was of great help to Meryl. Lisa provided evaluation of Meryl’s interests and aptitude. She made suggestions about use of contacts and networking, advice on applications, email communication and interviews. When more than one offer was on the table, Lisa helped with decision-making. Throughout this process Lisa was supportive, prompt, accessible and patient. She was both a coach and a teammate. Lisa’s service to our daughter was extremely valuable. I highly recommend Lisa.

Haley - UVM '09

Thank you so much for giving me the confidence and understanding to negotiate my salary. It was incredibly helpful to understand how aspects of my new job would affect my pay. The practice and routine you helped me create for myself in regards to editing my resume has made the job search process less intimidating.

Updating my resume in different formats helped me land the position I have now, in a career I was eager to jump into. Thank you so much for your continued support.

Meryl - Colby '11

Meryl on the fieldWorking with Lisa gave me something that my college career counseling service didn’t: honest, individual attention. She was able to understand my individual strengths and desires and articulate them to me in a way that provided me great clarity with my career goals. Furthermore, Lisa was truly a career coach for me.

A college career counselor is there to get you up and running with your search and your direction – but what happens when you’re one, two, three years down the road from that experience and you’re facing new circumstances and needing advice with transitioning, strategy, leveraging, etc.? Lisa was able to help me in areas beyond resume design, cover letter writing and interviewing – she gave me knowledge and a plan about how to handle more complicated situations in the job hunt. All of Lisa’s coaching has combined to leave me feeling far more confident and savvy – not just in job hunting, but in everything I could provide to a potential employer.

Sara - University of Southern Maine '13

For me, the process of promoting oneself is extremely uncomfortable; yet, I felt at ease and in control working with you. Your honesty allowed me to trust you and feel comfortable instantly.

The resume advice helped me present myself in a professional manner, while the other services strengthened my interview skills. You helped me stay on top of each step during the application and interview process. The communication was phenomenal and 100% beneficial. I know my job search process was faster as a result of working with you.

Alexa - Bowdoin '15

I wanted to let you know that I got a call on Wednesday receiving an offer to join the “major consulting firm” [name deleted intentionally] as a Business Analyst in New York! Thank you again for all your help with the mock interview and with answering my questions over these last few weeks. Some of the interview questions we went over actually did come up in my interviews, so it definitely helped to have gone over them before.

Jack - Bates '16

My search internship search process happened very quickly because I had two people riding me, you and my dad. I already have had 3 interviews where my friends are just beginning to fill out applications. Initially, the thought of being interviewed and preparing my applications for companies made me a little nervous. Your help with creating my resume and learning how to describe my past experience in a professional manner were very helpful. Similar questions to those you asked in the mock interview came up in all my interviews. Your overall service, resume tips and advice, the Strengths Finder tool and Mock Interviews were excellent.

Cal - New York University '16

I trusted you from the get-go. I felt comfortable because of the keen observations that you made that I felt applied to me. You were observant and picked up on some of the traits that make me unique, and later helped me to work those into my resume to separate myself from the competition.

The mock interviews were incredibly helpful. I felt more confident, and knew I was applying to jobs with my best foot forward. You were able to help me tailor my strengths and market myself better than I ever could have.
