Student Testimonials

After Career coaching I finally landed a job at my dream company! I’ll be starting as Marketing Coordinator next month. Thank you for all the support and guidance during the job search phase. The preparation you encouraged definitely helped me to keep my cool in the interview and put my best foot forward, and the rest is history.

Gabe, Commerce student

I got the exciting news last week that I got into the grad program.  I start February next year! Thank you so much for all your career coaching.  It definitely made all the difference and I really appreciate it. Thanks again!

Shanae, Criminology/Forensic Science student

Thank-you for your help with my interview practice over the last month. I was able to use the examples you assisted me with in the interview and due to the preparation, help and tips, I went in calm and not stressed. It all paid off, I was successful in getting a graduate position. I have recommended your services to fellow students to help them in the future.
