Merideth and her team gave me the framework I needed to accomplish everything that was already inside of me. They all took time to get to know me and were thoughtful and insightful about what I was going after and not only coached but cheered me on till I got to the finish line. I'll always remember the work I did with Merideth as a pivotal, turning point in my life path. When I didn't quite know what I really wanted to be doing, she helped me figure it out in a fun, non-stressful way, panning for gold to understand what I needed and wanted out of my career.
Madelyn rewrote my resume and updated my LinkedIn profile so that it reflected my new ambitions. Madelyn is brilliant; within a week of updating my LinkedIn profile, three companies reached out to me for interviews, all of which led to job offers. Celia guided me through the interview process. As a result of her many years in recruiting, she really understood the position I was going after and the type of interviews I'd be going through and gave me a list of questions I could expect to be asked. She advised me to come up with stories I could tell and as I practiced sharing them, she helped me adjust how best to deliver the message during the interview to keep the interviewer engaged.
I actively recommend Merideth and her team to ambitious professionals looking to take the next step in their career.

Prior to working with Merideth, I felt lost and uninspired in my job search and unclear about my career path. The feeling of not knowing “what I wanted to be when I grow up” when I had already completed graduate school and been in the workforce for 10+ years was making me lose confidence in my abilities; I was approaching the job search with dread.
Her coaching, online course materials, and webinars were useful and applicable to my needs. Merideth and her team of experts were critical in helping me turn my search around.
Nancy enhanced my personal image through her beautiful head shot—a confidence booster at the beginning of the process when I needed it most—and Madelyn crafted not one, but TWO amazing resumes that garnered positive feedback from recruiters and networking contacts and helped me score several interviews. Recruiter Celia’s warm and encouraging attitude was indispensable as she worked with me on job search and behavioral interview techniques.
I credit Merideth’s whole team with helping me to land the job I wanted, in the industry I was aiming for, one that I’m both personally, professionally, and financially thrilled with!
