Cindy’s job-hunting tips are practical and unique. Having a great deal of familiarity with the traditional job-hunting techniques, Cindy taught me some non-traditional methods – which was exactly what I was seeking.
Cindy is very willing to share her resources and network with her clients, enabling them to be successful. My current work directly originated from one of Cindy’s contacts, a person that I visited for an informational interview!
Let’s face it: job-hunting is not a fun activity. But it sure is nice having someone like Cindy in your corner.

Cindy has been a great resource during my search for a career change. She’s been very supportive and encouraging during this time, including helping me create a new resume and coaching on tasks to perform during my research, including mock interviewing, which has really helped. She’s also very knowledgeable about IT job opportunities.

Cindy’s methodical (yet flexible) method of coaching was exactly what I needed to get myself motivated! Through her “Discovering Self” exercises, we created a comprehensive outline of my personal skills, values, strength and interests. This information-gathering groundwork provided the resources needed to develop a powerful resumé. Cindy wouldn’t let me stop at the resumé though!
She also provided me with additional research tools to review the job market for my current position. She knew I was being underpaid and after doing some “checking” of my own, I realized she was right! She helped me write a proposal for a salary increase, aided me in gathering the appropriate backup documentation to support the proposal, and through role-playing provided me with the confidence I needed to approach my manager with the proposal. Guess what! I presented the proposal to my manager and was granted a new title PLUS increased annual earnings of over 8%!
I recommend and have recommended Cindy to friends and family any opportunity I get. Cindy, thank you!
