One of the best things I have done personally and professionally!
“When I first started working with Barb I characterized the effort as “guided self-discovery”. I was pretty sure I was going to wind up with a much improved resume and cover letter and on that note Barb delivered in spades. What I didn’t expect was the profound change of perspective I experienced regarding the unique value I bring to the table. My thought process in previous job searches was that potential employers had all the power. Was I good enough? Did I fit the role? Could I adapt to their way of working? Would they pick me? I felt as though I had little to no leverage, no negotiating chips, no currency to wield. Barb changed that for me.
As I grappled with the tough questions she posed, she was busy capturing the conclusions I would reach and pushing for introspection when I was tenuous. She was constantly paying attention to my story, building it out, crafting it in a way that matched my personality, energy level, and current and future goals. When I received the first draft of the resume I was amazed. Amazed at the skill with which she captured me as a professional, but also thrilled to know that I indeed have leverage, currency, and power. I now come to the table with a confident knowledge of my story and how that story, and the skills learned along the way, makes me unique and highly valuable. Working with Barb was, quite frankly, one of the best things I have done for myself both professionally and personally. I highly recommend Barb and plan on utilizing her services in the future.”
