“Before meeting with my career coach, I sent out handfuls of applications to jobs in different industries as my sense of career direction kept shifting–and unsurprisingly, I wasn’t hearing back from any of them.”

“My coach’s experienced and thoughtful approach to career coaching brought clarity to a chaotic-feeling process, and helped me more easily define and reach for my goals.”

“While working with my career coach, I applied to one job that closely aligned with my newly articulated values. I interviewed, and I eventually received an offer that far exceeded my initial hopes.”

“I cannot thank Stuart enough for the time he spent with me throughout all stages of my job search (and job search drama) after graduating from college. I’m so thankful for the tools and courage he gave me to continue the process even when I felt defeated. Stuart shows a deep empathy and understanding for the diverse needs and interests of recent college graduates entering the job market. He took careful consideration of all of the factors of my job search criteria, and instilled hope that I would find a position that aligned with my top priorities. Importantly, he helped me recognize my strengths and learn how to utilize those in the job market. With Stuart’s help, I got my ideal position that fit all of my top criteria for my first career-track position after college.” – Delany S., Volunteer & Development Coordinator

I not only entered a new industry, but I landed one of my top jobs at a choice firm!
