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. In the past I lacked confidence during interviews, however during my last interview I felt prepared and able to tackle any question. I attribute my feeling prepared to the tailored interview questions she gave me as prework. Those 17 questions were relevant to what it takes to become the principal of a school. Lastly, it’s great to bounce ideas off of Melissa and I intend to remain in contact with Melissa on a regular basis because I can trust her and she has consistency provided me with suggestions without passing judgment.
The most important thing people should know about working with Melissa is that with her they will find an open forum to air their concerns and receive very clear guidance on how to prepare themselves with confidence – know that her method really works. Not only did I get the job, but I have much more awareness now of my strengths and areas of opportunity as well as how should I approach an interview process. Aside from the confidence boost that I got from working with her I found her interview questions to be extremely helpful because they not only encouraged me to address how I would do the job as to exceed the company’s expectations but she also asked me questions that more broadly addressed the expanded role of a CFO in today’s global economy – it was a great learning experience for me overall. I really enjoyed working with Melissa and will be grateful forever for our shared success.
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 I did because otherwise, I wouldn’t have gotten this far on my own! My resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile are all updated and of much better quality than when I started! Through the process I also learned a lot of valuable information on how to find target companies, how to search for contacts, etc. All of these activities have given me much more confidence than when we began! What I liked most about working with Melissa was the accountability that came with the process. In a busy day and life, these things are easily put on the back burner and our weekly meetings held me accountable for getting my ‘homework’ done and being ready for the session. I wouldn’t have maintained the progress without these regular reviews. Since I have been out of the job search field for so many years, I have absolutely found all of the resources to be very helpful including her brand exercise which was also very good along with all her help with resources that are available online, particularly LinkedIn! Something that I think is important to know about working with Melissa is that you need to set enough time aside during these five weeks to do it justice otherwise you won’t receive the maximum benefits if you aren’t committed to putting in the necessary time.
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, etc.) I have been able to go back to almost all of her resources to review information we discussed and/or to refresh my memory about the feedback Melissa provided in writing. In addition, I appreciate getting copies of the recorded sessions we had. It’s a never-ending source of information as I continue down this journey. After partnering with Melissa, I have a much clearer understanding of what my focus needs to be around while I am on my job search. Also, I believe that my applications, cover letters, Twitter and LinkedIn collateral are much better structured to put my best foot forward. I understand the level of detail that I need to focus on to ensure that I present myself in the best light possible. The most important thing people should know about working with Melissa is that she makes it easy for her clients to be themselves, she leverages technology to support your clients, and she provides honest/direct feedback which helps her clients prepare for the “real world” of career management.
