“From the moment Beth started speaking, I knew she was the real deal. She had fresh, innovative ideas about the job world, and her excitement was infectious. I left with renewed faith in my abilities, but it didn’t end there – Beth followed up with valuable tools for my job search, and together we went through an in-depth but enjoyable process of finding out what I wanted out of my career now. In the end, through following the steps that Beth outlined and by being consistently buoyed by her belief in my potential, I was able to find a job that aligns perfectly with my career goals at this time in my life.”
Summer Dawn Franck, MBA
“I met with Greg with a below-grade résumé; he was then able to rework it into an exciting, informative and free-flowing résumé. He worked with me to gather my skills and experiences and directly align those with the position I was applying for (I got the job!).”
Jeffrey Wehrwein, ’11 & ’14 Midland
“Greg’s expertise in résumé writing and knowing what employers are looking for helped guide me in building a résumé to focus on the highlights of my military and civilian career over the last 30+ years. Through the help of Career Advancement, I have been offered one position and have received positive feedback from interviewers due to Greg’s coaching to prepare me for interviews.”
Franklin C. Taylor, ’14 Midland
“I can’t express in words what Beth has done to assist me with my career. She not only provided the MOTIVATIONAL PUSH I needed, but her coaching sessions to retool my résumé assisted with me attaining a new position within 90 days of working with her.”
