Achieving the Impossible

Amy helped me find work at an extraordinarily difficult time in my life. Having been out of work for seven years the recruitment process had changed drastically. Amy was an invaluable source of kind encouragement, flexible resourcefulness and determined persistence that got my wings in the air to fly. I have now been promoted in a fantastic company that I love thanks to one of Amy’s contacts. Thank you Amy!

Associate Director

Amy presented to students at BMCC two times (both on interviewing) on-campus. She presented wonderfully. She is very knowledgeable and engaging with students and welcomes their feedback and questions. She is candid which makes the students experience better in really understanding and relating to what is being said to them. We are looking forward to having her back on-campus or remotely! Thank you Amy!

Helpful group coaching program

Amy offered a group coaching program that was comprehensive, step by step, and interactive. Her feedback was insightful and comes from a genuine desire to help people navigate the job search process (which was very helpful for someone who has been on a lengthy career break), and her personal lessons from managing a career that’s diverse and extensive. I appreciate her guidance and having a group of accomplished and supportive professionals as accountability partners.
