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 for my career goals at this time in my life."

"I met with Greg with a below grade resume, he was then able to rework it into an exciting, informative and free flowing resume. He worked with me to gather my skills and experiences and directly align those with the position I was apply for (I got the job!)"

"Greg's expertise in resume writing and knowing what employers are looking for helped guide me in building a resume to focus on the highlights of my military and civilian career over the last 30+ years. Through the help of Career Services, 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
"Midge has a warm and welcoming attitude, which makes it easy to get in touch with her. I decided to stay for my OPT and she supported me from the first moment. She was patient, knowing and extremely helpful in creating an 'American' resume. Midge created a wonderful overview of my education and work experiences. Upon graduation, I moved to Miami and am working for one of the biggest yacht brokerage houses in the world."
