Jessica Rodrigues

Independent Consultant for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

Melissa is a creative, thorough and insightful career coach. Her preparation and innate understanding of my needs exceeded all my expectations. In helping me prepare for interviews, Melissa helped me express my personal mission and hone in on the unique talents I can offer that set me apart from my peers. And articulate these skills a way that resonated with the organizations where I wanted to work. Not only did she prepare challenging and relevant questions, but she gave me innovative ideas to propose to potential employers to meet their needs. Most notably, she suggested that I offer to prepare a presentation for Master’s candidates on my field experience for a contact at an academic institution during an informational interview and it was a hit! Working with Melissa built my confidence and gave me the tools I needed to conduct a stellar interview. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
