I’ve worked in higher education career services for 15 years. Therefore, I strongly advise any current college student or recent (or even distant) graduate to first take advantage of their college’s career services to the utmost before calling me. That said, not every college can offer the same level of individual service.
If you are a college student seeking an internship or job in today’s competitive economy–or the parent of one–why not take advantage of every resource you can access?
In particular–while I am not an attorney, I am familiar with the CPT and OPT options for F-1 visa students as well as the H1B visa process, and how to navigate this challenge when job searching; and I have helped many students from “non-target” schools successfully land internships and jobs in front-office investment banking and asset management. I also have in-depth knowledge of government and nonprofit student fellowship programs.

An initial consultation, of 90 minutes of coaching is usually conducted by phone or Skype.
- In 90 minutes, I can often completely revamp your resume–going through line by line while also talking through your career goals and achievements. I typically do an overhaul, and send you the resume with tracked changes, comments, and “fill in the blanks” for you to add; you can finalize the resume on your own time. For a completely finished/finalized resume, executives or mid-career professionals may need more than one hour.
- I can also focus the time on setting goals, writing a LinkedIn profile, conducting a practice interview (typically via Skype), or helping with self-assessment or salary negotiation.
- In two hours, I can often do the resume overhaul described above, get the resume into a more final version. Often I can also create a cover letter.
- We can also do resume plus LinkedIn profile/tutorial/strategy in 2 hours.
- Strategy/goal-setting plus resume can often be completed in 2 hours.
- In 3 hours, an executive can often get a more finalized resume and LinkedIn profile, and a cover letter and/or practice interview and strategy session.
- If you are considering a more significant career change, looking to transition to federal employment after private or nonprofit sector, so are starting from scratch and no sure what you want to do with your career, you may want to consider this larger package.
- Classic uses for a 30 minute follow up include a cover letter (after I’ve helped with your resume), or a salary negotiation or exit strategy after you’ve gotten a great job offer (which I’ve often helped you land).
