Many thanks for your patience and very pleasant disposition.
I am delighted with the product you have produced and the wealth of information as to thoughts and ideas in the covering letters you have also enclosed. Currently there are no maritime positions, however the potential in the near future is encouraging, and of course now I have my ‘new resume’ so for sure I will be able to forward it to ensure my ‘Job Search’ program to be far more wide and encompassing. Thank you once again Karalyn, for what is a very personal and individual experience that you have presided over, and finally I wish you every success in your very brave venture; generating your own independent income.
Raymond (Dixie) Foord, June 2010
“If I had your address I’d send you a bouquet of flowers – but instead I send this Big Thankyou. They offered what I wanted + 12% bonus. So I’m very happy.”
“GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I received a call on Thursday and was offered the training position I was going for. I will be starting In November in Melbourne for a year. It has been a long and draining recruitment process but it has finally come to an end (pending medicals and police checks). Thanks once again for your help with my interview preparation.”
“Just wanted to let you know I was offered the position I applied for back at the beginning of the year (the one you helped coach me for) I have now been in the job for about 6 wks & I have been asked to apply for ‘acting up’ duties. I also have an interview for a higher grade position this Thursday. (I have been preparing for the interview using the techniques you suggested). So, your advice was successful, I will let you know how this interview goes.”
“I had been looking for a job for 6 months. After I went to see Karalyn I was offered a job within days. Karalyn gave me confidence and helped me to be better prepared for interviews. I would highly recommend her services. I feel that she is not only caring and friendly but she wants to see results with her clients.”
“I really appreciate you giving up part of weekends and late afternoons to work on these for me. You went beyond the call of duty and the final product was professional and exactly what I was looking for when I sought assistance. I apologize for the slow response time, overloading you with unnecessary information and leaving things to the last minute; but I must say that you performed the task with flair and distinctiveness.”
“I look forward to using your expert services again soon and in the future if and when a position of interest arises. Again, I really appreciate you efforts and knowledge. I recognize that the services you provide are professional and indispensable for anyone looking for an edge and confidence.”
“I think I was waiting to hear back from Accenture about my second behavioural interview, when I wrote you my last e-mail. Since then, I have had the third and final interview with one of their senior executives, and I just yesterday I formally accepted an offer of employment from them! I will be starting as an Analyst in the Human Performance branch of their management consulting service line in August! I am so excited – it is the ideal job for me on so many levels, with possible scope to extend my career into China in a couple of years time, which is even better! It has all worked out really well! Thank you for all your help in my job-searching process!”
“Thanks to Karalyn’s coaching I got the job! This was my first formal panel interview in four years. Plus I was required to do a 20 minute presentation and submit a written report – so you can imagine my anxiety. With Karalyn’s professional one-on-one coaching, I could build upon on my interviewing strengths and identify potential pitfalls - understanding how best to handle a range of tricky questions. I highly recommend Interview IQ to anyone wanting to get that job offer.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for your help in 2005 – I really found it very useful. When I didn’t get the job at the Parkes library I went back into my shell and didn’t apply for other positions for most of this year. But eventually I applied for Chief Librarian at Robe and also at Port Pirie. I used all the material I got from when I worked with you and am very happy to report I have been appointed Chief Librarian at Port Pirie to start in February. As one of my sons lives in South Aust I am very happy with the outcome. So once again a big thank you.”
“Since the last time I had been job hunting (5 years ago), I felt that I was out of touch with the entire job seeking and interviewing process and therefore felt at a disadvantage. The process I worked through with you was great in helping me to better understand the interviewing process as well as identifying my key skill set for specific job roles and how to focus on these in an interview. This helped me in building my confidence in going to job interviews. Overall the experience was informative and has most definitely assisted me in my job hunting experience”
“I hadn’t had an interview in over 5 years and was feeling very apprehensive at the prospect. You gave me some informed and insightful advice, that made the whole process a lot less nerve wracking”
“I just thought I would touch base and let you know that I was accepted for an interview and offered the job. … I have no doubt that it was your selection criteria which gave me the opportunity of an interview and I can’t thank you enough for your time and efforts in writing and providing the criteria”.
“Thanks again for your assistance with the application. I received a phone call yesterday morning inviting me to an interview. No doubt credit goes to your professional service”.
“Brilliant work Susan”
“Beautiful and thank you so much. What a great help …You have done a tremendous job”.
“Thanks for doing an excellent job for me. I am extremely happy”.
“I personally love these CVs”
“Thank you again for your help and I just love what you did with my CV and Cover letter”.
“The CV looks great – thanks for that. I can see you are selling the whole package and I like your approach.”
“Thank you – the document you created is awesome!”
“Thank you so much – I thought I was unemployable and now I’m in a dream job.”
“I have looked through your work, Susan, and just have to express my appreciation, as it is outstanding.”
“Thank you for your hard work, I look forward to working with you again.”
“Thanks again, excellent job.”
“I am extremely happy with the outcome, and thank you for your professional input”.
“Another great result, thank you Susan.”
“Thanks for your help; it was a pleasure working with you.”
“Susan is someone you want on your team.”
