"Lisa, I got my dream job! I couldn't have done it without your help." -J.K.Smith, a mother returning back to work after 18 years "Searching for a job or an internship can be frustrating. Before I met with Lisa, I had no idea what I was doing. She was able to break down the entire process and provide valuable insight from both the applicant and employer perspectives. With Lisa’s help, I now have a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and how to stand out from other applicants." -R. Fox, Mechanical Engineering student, anticipating graduation in 2019 “Back in 2015 when I was downsized, Lisa helped me to rethink how to present my resume after a 40-year career in finance. Her advice earned me immediate results. And, I have been employed ever since.” -M. Miller, Investment Banker Author Photograph by Halle Holmes
