“Although I have coached and trained people throughout my career, I realized that I had never invested in developing my personal brand or taken the time to really decide what I wanted to do after graduating from business school. Through Susan’s incredible (and patient) guidance, I was able to discover my true passions and take actionable steps in my career growth. I could not have done it without her.“ J.

“Susan was very professional to work with and streamlined my resume in writing and on LinkedIn. For years I had been applying to companies and hearing almost no response back. After Susan’s revisions, many companies were responding and some were even reaching out to me on LinkedIn. Even if you think you have a polished resume, I highly recommend Susan to second check your work and offer advice on wording, layout, and prioritization of your experience & skills.” Brian H.

“After my initial phone call with Susan, I hung up feeling energized and excited. The daunting task of updating a cover letter and resume was going to be completed by a true professional with the deepest wealth of knowledge you can possibly imagine. In addition to pristine and concise documents, Susan also worked with me on practice interviews and most importantly, how to sell myself. Understanding your worth and skills is important but knowing how to sell them to a hiring manager is even more essential. Susan is what I’ve always wanted and needed to boost my confidence and get me out in the real world. Looking forward to continuing periodical check-ins with her as my career progresses.” Laurel P
