Career Services told me there was nothing I could do

“This much a better plan than what I had before! When I talked to Career Services, they basically told me there was nothing I could do to look for a job while I wait for the bar exam results. But you’ve already outlined a lot of logical things I could be doing to be a better candidate and look for a job. And that makes so much more sense to me, because doing nothing but sitting around makes *no* sense.”

it flows more naturally

“Both the résumé and cover letter tell my story with a better approach and bring in my backstory. The way everything’s structured seems to flow a lot better now. I *love* what you did to edit my cover letter. It’s like the story I had, but it flows more naturally and it’s just laid out beautifully. It’s not as choppy anymore; it's just very smooth.​”

I was invited to interview

“Hi Shauna: Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I was invited to interview with the managing partner at [the law firm]. While not one of my top firms, it’s a step in the right direction and depicts how effective the changes we discussed are. Thank you for all of your help on the résumé and cover letter. Your insight into the hiring process was invaluable. I will keep you posted on how things unfold from here.”

a completely different approach

“It’s a completely different approach than I’ve been taught, but I totally understand the method. It makes 100% sense and it’s totally clear. I feel so much better about my prospects and my plan of attack after working with you. It’s making me think about what I need to do to prepare for a job interview, to make sure I can reframe what I do. I’m loving this.”
