Students’ Thoughts on Working with Cari

“Every meeting with you had a substantial, positive impact on my resume-writing and interviewing skills. You effectively communicated how to write an excellent resume, and not only explained what exceptional interviewing skills are, but also how to develop them.

And just as important, you built up my confidence in two ways: by praising me for what I already did well and by giving me constructive feedback on areas that needed improvement.”

University of Iowa Psychology Major

“I am still at a loss for words for how helpful you were for my career. You were amazing! Because of your resume and interviewing workshop help, I had interviews with PwC, EY, KPMG, Orbital ATK, Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, BDO, and Chicago Global Health Alliance. I accepted an offer from Baker Tilly!”

“I had my English teacher look at the college essays that you and I worked on together and he really loved them. He said these were the best essays he has reviewed this year! THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

“Cari did everything to help me succeed. I couldn’t have gotten the job that I love without her. It was a lot of hard work organizing my thoughts and deciding what I wanted to say during the interviews and she was patient and listened to what I would say and tell me honestly what she thought of it. She helped with all the little things, like deciding between a dress or pant suit. Cari knew what the employers would be looking at and used little cues to remind me to sit up straight or not use my hands as much. She was also extremely flexible in her schedule. These job interviews came up all of a sudden and she was willing to work with me on the phone the next day. But the reason why I will always want to work with Cari is because of how much she cared about my success. I always left Cari’s feeling motivated and ready for the interview. After each interview I would want to talk to Cari about what went well and what didn’t to continue practicing for the future and because I knew how excited she was for me as well. Every time I see Cari I want to keep thanking her because I know I would not be where I am today without her.”
