Having various work experiences and requiring more focused guidance, I benefited from Linda Leake's Career Transition Management work.  My resume and cover letter were improved from her objectivity when identifying my success stories.  She is perceptive in regards to individual personalities and concentrates on goals and strengths.  Additionally, she has many contacts in the job market and is aware of specific positions that are a perfect fit!

If you are looking to restart your career after a setback, there is no-one better than Linda to give you a good kick in the right direction. She has amazing energy and drive, she forces you to re-evaluate yourself, she shows you the way forward, and she does not stop pushing you until you have achieved the result you need. Her "You Get Hired" workshop is absolutely the best.
