What People Say...


"I have worked closely with John on both a personal and professional referral basis for many years. John has a holistic approach to job search and career transition. He coaches and monitors clients throughout the whole process and prepares them for the unexpected. Resume construction, interview tactics, salary and benefit negotiation are all standard consultations. However, John has been very effective at providing the “edge” in each of these areas that give his clients a distinct advantage over their competition. There are many professionals in the search and transition profession, but it is John’s seasoned experience in an array of professional fields and job market environments that distinguishes him from the rest."  Kim S.  Manchester, ME


"John was instrumental in my post-MBA job search – providing me with interview tools, editing my resume, teaching me salary negotiation, and helping me to evaluate an offer. He helped me find the perfect fit. Throughout the years I have turned to John for career advice as he not only provides excellent counsel, but also explains the reasons behind his logic. I will not hesitate to continue following John’s direction.”  Stephanie H.  Denver, CO

I’m now well on my way to a career in Project Management."  Athens K.  San Francisco, CA
