What people have said about us

Careers Discovered did more in 2 hours to improve my resume presentation than I could have done alone in a week. I can't believe the difference in quality. I am now being considered for a very senior position. Thank you!
Name Held Confidential Federal Government Executive
I feel that they left nothing undone in their preparation and process, and that my primary coach clarified the options for me by setting realistic goals and expectations. She made the process fun even while identifying flaws and correcting them. Careers Discovered really is quite different from other career coaches, and I would highly recommend them to anyone discouraged by the job search.
Michele F. Administrative Professional, Kingdom of Bahrain
I can now better position myself in a way that wows potential employers while still staying true to myself. I feel more confident and can articulate my skills and strengths for formal job interviews as well as informal settings. More than anything, I appreciate that my coach catered to my specific needs and unique concerns even if it meant changing course on the fly. [My coach] is a goldmine when it comes to preparing for a career move and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her—and myself—in the process!
Jaspreet G. Administrative Professional, Walla Walla WA
In my quest to re-enter the work force after part time employment, I sought Careers Discovered help to assist me with resume rebuilding, coaching for career transition, organization and establishing of networks, and preparation for informational interviews in potential career paths. The staff was efficient, passionate, intuitive, focused, and deeply committed to the outcome. The best gift they imparted to me was to instill greater confidence that my professional and volunteer skills were marketable and needed in this climate of recession recovery. Without hesitation, I would recommend Careers Discovered to all. They are skilled with all levels of education, all walks of life, and particularly effective in moving forward productively and effectively.
Linda C. Gerontologist/Health Care Administrator Educator
My coach was excellent at building confidence by identifying my strengths -- when critical feedback was needed, it was done in a way that challenged me to emphasize my best authentic self. The program is systematic; I always knew what we were working on, and how it fit into the bigger picture.
Denise R. Librarian
With great intuition, my coach was able to hear my stories and ask meaningful questions which led to a list of accomplishments far greater than the mundane tasks I had originally listed. While working with Careers Discovered it was quite obvious that they were committed for the long haul.
Laura M. Senior Trainer, Arlington VA
I am thinking about life, where I stand in the universe and job search, and feel very grateful for your help, feedback, and words of encouragement. The job fair was a big success. I used the techniques you taught me and felt good. I am very grateful for your help. I don't think I would have gotten that far without your coaching. You are great and you should know it.
