It worked!

“Hi Shauna, It worked! I sent my new résumé to a prospective employer the day after we did the live edit session back at the end of August. It was a bit of an interview process, but I got an offer earlier this week, and, after some negotiation, accepted this morning. Base salary is up 30% - and I will be doing work that is far more interesting to me than eDiscovery! Thanks again for everything!”

very uplifting for me personally

“This is wonderful. It’s exactly what I needed to hear and was looking for. I know what to start doing next. This feels like it’s been the fastest hour I’ve ever spent talking to someone; I have nearly 10 pages of notes. And it’s very uplifting for me personally—you've made me feel like there’s a wealth of opportunities I can choose from instead of just being locked into a track.”

This is your calling.

“Shauna, I’m already happy. You had me at hello. What I’m getting out of this process is not just a great document. It’s advice. It’s career strategy. When you’re looking for a job and not being successful, you start to second-guess yourself, your career, and your choices. But what you’ve drawn out of me is that I’ve actually had a pretty damn good career and done a pretty damn good job. I have things to be proud of. You’ve made me realize that. And you’ve given me more confidence. What you’ve done... from a mental perspective, I’m so much better. This is your calling. I’m very impressed and I’m so happy.”

For the first time, my spouse understands what I do.

“I feel much better about where I am. I really tried to take to heart what you said about less technical and Navy jargon, and more plain English and relatability. Before my résumé didn't have a clue. Now people can read it, and it makes sense. For the first time, my spouse understands what I do.”
