Customer Reviews

“Lisa was very responsive, supportive, and encouraging! In addition to three face to face meetings, we had many phone conversations and email exchanges. We explored new paths and eliminated some…. Within a few days of our first phone interview, I learned I was going to be laid off in the fall. Thank Goodness Lisa was in my corner or the news would have been much more daunting!” Kellie

I’m now more confident and concise when discussing my professional skill set in general and in job interviews. Lisa is a gifted writer and communicator. Her expert knowledge and timely follow through are top-notch. She is supportive, sincere and inspiring. I highly recommend working with Lisa.”

“It went extremely well. Lisa has a wealth of information…. Advice was extremely personalized yet applicable so many ways. I think I received 20 pieces of important hints and advice in just 20 minutes. But it was not too quick… Very current information for the marketplace also.”

Sue
“Lisa was hired to help my daughter who recently left a position due to a poor work environment. The decision for my daughter to make this transitional move and seek new employment was stress inducing in itself. Lisa provided the encouragement and support my daughter needed during this time and increased her self-confidence. She helped with interview skills and provided excellent guidance and advice along the way. We were extremely impressed by Lisa’s knowledge and insight of the hiring process. She also focused on the human side of things and guided my daughter to do what was right for her personally. Lisa was extremely prompt and responsive to my daughter’s phone calls and emails… She was highly professional yet very caring and easy to talk with. My daughter was successful in finding a new position. I would definitely hire Lisa again and highly recommend her services to others.” Michell
