"Lauren was great! Immediately she put me at ease with the tremendous task ahead of me. She was extremely professional and took an awful situation and put a positive spin on it. I could tell that Lauren loves what she does as it shone through in her voice on each phone call. Her honesty as well as encouragement made a huge impression on me. She shared phone interview strategies and secrets as well as how to video interview. The information she provided to prep for interviewing was invaluable. For someone who had not done job hunting and interviewing with any seriousness since the last century, she gave me real confidence in myself and my abilities to get the job I wanted. I am excited to start my next endeavor in my career and I could not have done it without Lauren's great coaching and guidance!" -B.W., Executive Director
