Testimonials

AS A CAREER COACH…

“When I was looking to update my resume and brush up on some of my interviewing skills I thought of Aimee. She had been a recruiter on a job I had applied for late last year. Although that job didn’t pan out, I was so impressed with the way Aimee had conducted the interview process that I sought her out. She had a number of different plans but I wanted the full Aimee treatment. She was an amazing guide, it was tough, but to really understand how to present yourself, know where your experience comes from and know your worth takes work. It was well worthwhile to have the outcome: a powerful resume, cover letter and how to speak in an interview. I really appreciated the feedback in the practice interview. I am not a formal person, but am a very dedicated to my craft and Aimee made me realize that being myself was the best approach. The final golden nuggets she offered were a number of introductions to her contacts with similar interests and ambitions. I was so grateful, especially for this, as I was new to the Portland area. I highly recommend Aimee to anyone that knows what they want, but need help on how to present their skills and experience in the best way possible.”
~ Senior Designer

“As a person looking to change careers after 10+ years, who didn’t know quite where to begin, Aimee has proven invaluable! From assistance with resume/cover letter, to LinkedIn tips and overall guidance on what to expect (and what would be expected from me) during the interview process she has been amazing. I cannot stress enough how easy she is to work with and how prompt and professional she is. She provides honest feedback, which is backed with an experience in the industry so it holds weight. For anyone struggling through this process, I strongly encourage you to not go it alone – take advantage of this wonderful resource!”
~ Technical Project Manager

“My experience with Aimee was fantastic and ultimately led to a new position that was exactly what I was looking for. The clear and methodical approach was easy to execute, including specific direction on improvements to my resume, LinkedIn profile and cover letter. During our mock interview I received clear feedback on how interact and answer questions more effectively. I have had no hesitation recommending Aimee to a number of my friends and coworkers.”
~ Merchandising Executive

“I was promoted to my new role as an HR Specialist and didn’t have that much experience with recruiting. My manager reached out to Aimee to get a suitable training for me in order to get more familiar with recruiting processes, etc. Aimee is very personable and very knowledgeable and gave me really great tips for my work. I really enjoyed our time spent together and would recommend Aimee as a great resource for targeted training for those seeking to learn recruiting best practices.”
– Human Resources Specialist / Recruiter

“I reached out to Aimee for career coaching after recently being laid off and wanted to take that opportunity to clearly define the next steps in my career. I had a very good idea about what I wanted to do and why, but had basically no clue on how to get there. Aimee’s help was outstanding as she made very meaningful and practical recommendations, including the rework of my resume, improving my LinkedIn profile and helping me with extending my professional network. She has a very pragmatic and collaborative approach when it comes to create a plan of actions – be prepared to do your homework as she guides you through the process. Her broad expertise of the hiring process, human resource management and her deep knowledge of the startup landscape in the Pacific Northwest were simply phenomenal. This, in itself, provided me with the insights I needed to fill the gaps on how I could achieve my career goals. I heartily recommend Aimee to anyone needing career coaching and would no hesitate working with her again if I need some guidance in the future.”
~ Software Architect

“I was making a big change in my career field after over a decade. Aimee helped me translate a resume full of jargon and lots of ideas to focus on the next step in my career. It worked about as well I could imagine. I’ve found companies that are right inline with what I want to do and opportunities to grow because of her help articulating my story. If you are looking to switch careers or are having a hard time telling your story, do yourself a favor and reach out to Aimee! Working with her was fun and easy… not adjectives I ever thought that I would use to describe updating a resume. She just knows what is needed and how to focus on the right things.”
~ Chief Operating Officer

“Aimee is equally kind and professional. She works with you to get to the heart of what you are really going after – asking challenging questions when necessary. She then crafts your experience to position you for your next opportunity. I was floored by the transformation that remained factual but so much more powerful. Her professional network is extensive and she kindly introduces you to the right people to get you going. I am so glad I found her and I am telling everyone that needs a resume brush-up (and who doesn’t) about her. ”
~ Account Executive

I feel more confident moving forward in my search since working with Aimee and highly recommend her to others.”
~ Principal Instructional Designer

“Aimee has been a great help to me for years, but she really proved invaluable in my latest search.

She set up a very simple process, which made it easy for everyone involved to participate. She screened most of the candidates and allowed us to focus on the ones who really had merit. Every person she sent along for a formal interview was worth talking to and had both great skills and great personality, showing that she had picked them very well not only on the professional level but also on the culture fit one. The eventual candidate we ended up hiring has been truly fantastic, not only in the role we hired them for but also bringing positive change to the organization as a whole.

Next time, she’ll not only be our first call, but we’ll engage her consultancy as early in the process as possible.”
