perfect sense

“This makes perfect sense, but it’s not necessarily intuitive. It really requires me to step back and really think about how do I make myself attractive to other employers. There’s legwork, but it’s not as daunting as I thought. Before this call, I was going in five different directions trying to figure out what the next step was.”

then I met you

“I thought I had pretty decent knowledge about LinkedIn, and then I met you and realized that there’s so much more I could be doing. It’s very nice the way you laid everything out to build my profile. I love your ideas. All I had to do was copy the information. And I didn’t even know that I had an old LinkedIn account until you found it. I’ve already had contacts tell me I have a really good profile."

LinkedIn works!

“LinkedIn works! I got my job through LinkedIn. The recruiter contacted me just two weeks after you updated my profile. And I’ve had lots of recruiters contact me, which *never* happened before. There are always recruiters sniffing around my profile, so it’s working!”

an approach and process to move forward

“I do think this has all been helpful. You’ve given me an approach and process to move forward. All the things we’ve been discussing—that’s why I don’t have a résumé. The process that you’ve outlined on determining my goals and the target pool of employers will be a helpful tool for me in thinking about my career and in formulating an approach for the résumé.”

I’ve been really struggling

“I seriously appreciate this advice. I’ve been really struggling with interviewers, and I didn’t understand why until now. I’m glad to have a way of more proactively addressing the problem—before red flags are raised about why I’m applying for these jobs.”

Let’s do this!

"I’ve been ignoring it because I have a very difficult time looking at myself and packaging myself in the best way possible. New York was a blood bath during the recession. There’s still a lot of emotion tied into it. To be honest, I have a lot of shame around it, even though it was 10 years ago. I need to be more comfortable in how I define—and market—myself. After talking to you, I’m feeling very motivated. Let’s do this!”

I’m finally connecting the dots.

“I didn’t really have a clear thought process for my job search before. I’m finally connecting the dots. This all makes total sense. And it feels like something I can do. I have to dig deeper and think more. I’m realizing how much I haven’t thought through. I have a lot of questions to ask myself!”

I agree with everything you just said

“I agree with everything you just said. I used to do hiring for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and I reviewed thousands of résumés. And I can’t believe that I’ve made the very same mistakes on my own résumé.”

well worth the money

“You’re a genius with words. And your questions are making me realize how much I need to practice my answers for the interviews. I have a lot I need to go back to my records and look up. This has been well worth the money and I'll be recommending it to everyone!”

I have stage fright.

“I just stink at interviewing. I have stage fright. It’s true. And I don't know what to do about it. Your coaching made me better—I wasn’t as nervous. And I was told that I came across as more confident. And these are all really great ideas to continue to improve.”
