I really appreciated the unsolicited guidance I didn't know I needed about making my resume more currently functional for marketing in this competitive job market. Also appreciated was her very clear and direct information about current market and expectations.

I met Jennifer for a virtual intake interview and left feeling respected as a professional and a high level of trust in her. She gave me honest assesments about the market and emphasized the partnership of a job search. I would highly recommend her to my colleagues - thank you!

Went into great depth to understand my current role and skills, clearly explained different types of opportunities (for example, contract to hire positions), all in a professional but slightly laid-back atmosphere that made me as an interviewer feel comfortable.
