I am so grateful to have found Suzannah and for our work together! I had been working on a potential career transition on my own (including resume updating, new industry research, searching for open positions, networking) but just wasn’t feeling like I was making any progress and honestly wasn’t even sure I was on the right path.
I knew at that point that I needed help and found Suzannah while researching career coaches on Yelp. I read the experiences from her other clients and that helped me feel comfortable to move forward with contacting her. Let me just tell you that all of the positive reviews and experiences shared from her other clients are spot-on. Working with Suzannah has been one of the best presents that I could give myself!
Suzannah and I initially had a phone consultation and from that first phone call, I knew that it would be a great experience working together. It is clear that she has experience working with a wide-range of clients and has an extensive network of both professional and personal connections. It was so helpful for me to speak with someone that could be objective about my situation and I felt that she not only understood what I was going through but instantly had ideas on how to help. Suzannah is warm and friendly and never judgmental. She asks some tough questions (maybe things you are afraid to ask yourself) but then always helps you come up with a plan to work through it (together).
I signed up for the career clarity courses and we worked through those exercises and then ended up changing the last session to focus on interview prep. I even added a session to help me through the negotiation for a new position I had been offered. My point in sharing this is that working with Suzannah is truly a customizable experience. She has the framework in place but you end up collaborating together to create a unique experience and sessions that are most effective for you.
In my experience, working with Suzannah was worth every penny and let’s be honest, it’s not about the money when you end up feeling like you have a solid plan, are on the right track and that you are putting your best foot forward. Through our sessions I felt more confident and focused. Suzannah helped me work through some tough decisions (always letting me make the final decision but putting forward suggestions or a point of view for us to discuss, which I may not have fully considered).
I know that Suzannah is someone that I will keep in touch with throughout my career. Even though I am now consumed with transitioning into my new position, I enjoy reading her blog and keeping in touch though her email newsletter and twitter feed.
Suzannah – Thank you again. It was such a pleasure to work together and I will be forever grateful for our work and your help through this transition in my life!
