School Administrator at Guilford County Schools

Since working with Melissa I have gained self-confidence. She never judged my honest answers and she was sincere about trying to help me land a job. Today I can confidently say that Melissa saved me from self-doubt and fear. What I enjoyed most about Melissa was her reflective questions which required me to think deeper.…

Supply Chain Leader

I had not worked on a resume or thought about job searching in over 15 years so it was a pretty daunting experience to begin.  The only hesitation I had was if I was ready to receive the services or if I should have done more work up front.  I’m happy that I started when…

Managing Director

What I liked best about working with Melissa was her candid feedback and myriad of tools. All of her tools were helpful (90-day plan, top companies list and related information stored there, keywords list and exercise that resulted in her being able to identify my ideal keywords, her use of Skype to consult with me,…

Senior Advisor, Alberta Government

Before I left my job to live overseas and start a family, I knew I was a well prepared, highly regarded professional whom was driven and considered a fantastic hire.

The best thing about working with Melissa is her commitment and follow-through. It…

Elley Symmes

The biggest result I’ve noticed after partnering with Melissa is feeling like I have a direction I want to move in. Before we started I had no idea what I wanted or how to get it. I also was struggling to get my resume and cover letters in order. I now feel more confident when…

Tracy Johnson

In the beginning I felt hesitant about networking and getting in contact with people. I had always worked with recruiters before so I felt a little outside my comfort zone. However, after having a few conversations with a couple like-minded people in my network I think I am really coming around to idea of being…

Emily P

Melissa is a fun, badass coach who will get to the heart of why you want that job and then help you communicate it. After 3 Skype sessions, I learned to use word clouds to find language trends that will help me target my audience. I have gained confidence in my job search. I know…

Kris Neely

Melissa means business! She brings a ‘no nonsense’ approach, like you’d expect from a New Yorker, and it was exactly what I needed. Melissa’s originality in approaching interview questions and thank you notes – highlighting my skills or an interviewer’s viewpoint on the issue — made me stand apart from other candidates to land my…
