Success Stories

I am completely indebted to Melissah for the amazing help she provided

I recently used Melissah's services for the second time when I was pursuing my dream job. The first time I worked with her, she helped me land an incredible job. I was so thrilled with my new position and she had truly impressed me then with her passion, knowledge, and the personal attention so I contacted her again. I only wanted the best, and once again, she completely delivered.

Melissah coached me on where I wanted to go with my career and gave me practical tools, guidance, and clear direction so that I knew how to get there. All along, she was cheering me on and supporting me every step of the way. She then helped retool my resume and cover letter so that I completely stood out from the competition -- so much so that I was one of 4 candidates out of 200 chosen to be interviewed!

She then worked with me to present myself in the most professional way during my interview and coached me so that I could tell my story and highlight my accomplishments in a compelling and authentic way. After my interview, I knew I had done my very best. This was confirmed when the next day I received a call with an offer for my dream job.

I can't tell you how thrilled I am with my new job and am completely indebted to Melissah for the amazing help she provided. I know that if it wasn't for her, I would never be here. If you feel stuck in your job or career and don't know where to go or if you want to get to the next level in your career, I guarantee you that Melissah will help to get you there.

In short, Melissah is wonderful!!

I heard about her services through a friend of mine, and chose to partake in the initial 15 minute consultation call. Since then, I've worked closely with her as she's coached me through the various stages of the process. Melissah is very patient and listens thoroughly before offering advice. Her interview prep was immensely helpful!! I would recommend Melissah to anyone - whether you are looking to switch/find your career or need help with resume and interview prep, Melissah is quite simply the best!"

She is like a light in a dark tunnel in this very competitive job market

I would like to second all the wonderful words mentioned about Melissah. She is like a light in a dark tunnel in this very competitive job market.

I was extremely discouraged with my job search so I contacted Melissah for help after reading numerous recommendations for her on Facebook. We first revamped my resume and cover letter, and then addressed my job strategies... or lack of them lol. She had/has so many great suggestions, and her interview coaching is phenomenal! She definitely gets you ready for those tough interview questions.

Once I started submitting my updated resume and cover letter and followed her suggestions with job strategies, I started getting hits, including a top organization in the Bay Area! I honestly don't know what I would have done without her interview coaching and support throughout ----this journey. All I can say is she's awesome! Definitely worth every penny!"

I could not have done it without Melissah's support and vast pool of knowledge

I cannot recommend Melissah enough for anyone who feels they could gain confidence and improve their interview performance. It was extremely difficult to get interviews in the Bay Area and when I finally did land one, I knew I needed guidance and support to help me represent myself and be competitive.

A few of my friends had used Melissah's services in the past for interview prep, as well as for resume and cover letter help . They spoke nothing but praise for her. I decided to go for the largest package she offers and even purchased two more sessions with her!

She is so incredibly knowledgeable and really gets to know you and your strengths and weaknesses . She carefully listens to you and your experiences and then helps you rearrange and express them in the best way possible , which in turn makes you much more valuable to future employers .

Melissah is so warm and caring and truly loves her job and it shows! She continued to check up on me even after our sessions had ended . After three interviews , I finally landed my dream job!!! I really could not have done it without Melissah's support and vast pool of knowledge regarding proper professional etiquette!!

I was one of 600 applicants in one of three job offers I received!

I had been on countless interviews without success so I decided to contact Melissah before my next interview. In short, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Melissah was extremely prepared, thorough and professional. She coached me on how best to answer potential interview questions and gave me tips to stay relaxed, calm and confident. She also advised me on how to successfully present myself and even what to wear for my interview. I utilized all of her excellent advice and outstanding coaching and got three job offers!!! Additionally, I was one of 600 applicants in one of the three job offers I received. Melissah is amazing at what she does and I simply can't recommend her highly enough. I am incredibly grateful for Melissah's guidance and encouragement, and couldn't have gotten the job without her. Thank you Melissah!!"

Her service is definitely worth it!

Melissah knows her stuff and gives helpful, honest feedback. She helped me increase my confidence in answering interview questions and helped me hone my answers. I was one of those people who would get super nervous in interviews, and I felt so much better after working with Melissah.

Also, I contacted her only a week before an interview, and she fit me in somehow.

She is professional, accommodating, and I am so glad I was able to work with her. Her service is definitely worth it!

Melissah is a gifted teacher, writer, and coach

For a birthday present my husband surprised me with a career coaching package with Melissa. I had been looking to work with one because I was questioning my happiness with my career path at the time. This was the best present I could have received at this time.

Working with Melissa was a pivotal experience in my life. She assigned me research work, (yes you must do homework) that sparked interests that I knew where there but were dulled over with time. She created a safe place where I could discuss my thoughts with her; she gave her honest, realistic and positive feedback in our conversations. With her encouragement and support I summoned enough courage to make a career move and go back to school to attain my Counseling Masters. With careful thought and preparation, I quit my full time job and found a great part time job working at a local College in a job that is along the field of what I'm gearing towards .

Melissa was the one person who made me look at my strengths and helped me to appreciate them and use them as a tool towards career and life happiness. Melissa is a gifted teacher, writer and coach. She coached me on my interview skills for school and work. She helped me cultivate a stronger resume and cover letter. Because of her experience and professionalism I wanted more from myself and started to embody her confidence. She really is a coach and believes you have more potential than you think and after working with her, you will start to see it too.

During the time I worked with her I, finished yoga teacher training, quit my job, got accepted to a Counseling Master Program, and found a new job. But, the most important thing is I am truly happy and that means I'm a better mother, wife, friend, daughter and person. Thank you Melissa for everything, I wouldn't be in this good place without you, I am forever grateful. Namaste!

Melissah provided me with the necessary skills and tools

Melissah knows how to bring out the strengths in individuals. My job was eliminated after many years with the company. Typically employers reached out to me. This time I was the one searching for a job. Melissah provided the skills and tools, working with me to hone the necessary attributes in order to be gainfully employed. She was there every step of the way. If I am ever in this situation again, my first call will be to Melissah. I highly recommend her, especially if you have been out of or new to the job market.

Melissah truly holds the secrets to success

Melissah is amazing at what she does. She worked with me to refine my interview skills and my professional "image." I felt that she truly cared about my success as an individual by bringing up past examples we had spoken about and noting my improvements throughout our time together. I feel more confident in my abilities and ready to take on an interview to put my skills to the test! Melissah truly holds the secrets to success and I am so grateful for the guidance I received."

Maddy K.

She is truly an amazing coach!

She is just what I needed - my cheerleader to show how I could be a great interviewee! I feel comfortable sharing my biggest fears about the interview process with her. She is extremely positive and truly an amazing coach! I wished I listened to my instincts earlier. I would have been more prepared for past interviews. When I mentioned this point to Melissah, she replied, "Your dream job is around the corner." She is so wise. Thank you for providing this service - it's your calling!

Melissah possesses the ability to connect with her clients

Melissah is excellent at what she does. She was a pleasure to work with, and is extremely prompt, organized, and efficient. Most importantly, she possesses the ability to connect with her clients, and empower them to gain the confidence needed to be successful in any job interview scenario.

I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking to build their interview skills, whether entering a new profession, or seeking a new position. Melissah has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and would be an excellent asset to any interviewee. Thanks Melissah!"

I truly can't say enough positive things about her!

Melissah has been outstanding in every way! She prepared me very well for my interview and I am so grateful. I think she really increased my confidence going into interviews and completely prepped me when I started with nothing! She made the most of my time with interviews, and has been a source of support throughout my career search, I truly can't say enough positive things. Her services are an investment and I consider it well worth it! I highly recommend her.

Elaina L.

I am indebted with gratitude for what she has done

Do yourself a favor - pick up the phone, go to your email, whatever it takes, contact Melissah. The hard part will be over. It's that simple. Going through a major life transition and being unemployed is scary and lonely, and for several months I left the game. Then I called Melissah and she brought me back to the table and put the winning cards in my hands. Her style of communication, her attitude, and her belief in me made all the difference. She coached me for interviews, and she cheered me on -- every step of the way. I am indebted with gratitude for what she has done for me.

I went from having no goals to having goals to achieving those goals

I was completely stuck in my job search. I had no idea what I was doing, where to search, or how to properly network. Melissah provided me with all of the tools to help me land a nursing job. She was incredibly patient, understanding, and kind. I went from having no goals to having goals to achieving those goals. I know that as time moves forward I may want a different path, but I have all of the essential tools to get to where I want to be. Thank you so much, Melissah!

Melissah helped me secure not only one but multiple offers

Mastering the skills for interviewing is truly an art and Melissah is an amazing coach. She not only prepared me for the toughest interviews but also helped me gain the confidence I needed to stand above the competition.

Working with Melissah helped me secure not only one but multiple New Grad RN Residency offers from some of the top university hospitals and I am now working at my dream job at Stanford Hospital.

Trust me, she's the best!!!!

Melissah coached me on how I needed to brand myself

I knew I had made the right choice contacting Melissah immediately after our first phone call. Her enthusiasm for what she does is absolutely contagious. She is incredibly intuitive and thoughtful in her process. Right off the bat you get the sense that she just "gets you". I had recently quit my job and had no idea what I wanted to do. Melissah worked diligently with me to figure out my strengths and my passions and combined these two areas to determine possible career paths. It was absolutely eye-opening! Melissah introduced me to numerous jobs that I had never even heard of before!

Once I had decided on my industry and job title of choice, Melissah coached me on how I needed to brand myself. She did a complete, much-needed overhaul and essentially became my image consultant. She provided me with a well rounded and dynamic approach to job seeking which included networking tips, LinkedIn strategies, and even penetrating the job market via social media. I just landed a job at a company I've always dreamed of working for. I am so grateful for Melissah's coaching. I could not have done it without her!

She is a true professional who goes above and beyond for her clients

There are so many excellent things to say about Melissah that I'm not quite sure where to start. Working with her was an amazing experience that has truly been invaluable to me. I've spoken to other career counselors in the past who were condescending and would talk at me rather than engaging in a dialogue with me. Melissah spoke to me as a peer, something that contributed greatly to me regaining my confidence. I had been extremely discouraged in my job search and she helped me shake those counterproductive feelings and get back on track. I used to enter interviews nervous and unprepared, whereas now I feel confident, prepared, and excited.

She is a true professional who goes above and beyond for her clients. She is always available and responds to emails promptly. I'd highly recommend any of her services and workshops to anybody looking to advance their career. You will see that her help is invaluable, just as I did.

Ali M.

I've gained a wealth of knowledge!

I wish I could add more to the stellar reviews Melissah has received, but I fear I may be repeating what others have already said. It's all true. I only utilized her interview coaching session, but feel I've gained a wealth of knowledge. She was extremely caring and professional during each of our sessions. She provided me with real, and encouraging feed back.

I believe she genuinely cared about my needs and took her time to help me in areas where she felt I could use some improvement.

I was referred to her by a close friend and now I, myself would definitely refer others.

Thanks for empowering me and my strengths Melissah! ๐Ÿ™‚

She can help you to own your strengths and present them with confidence!

Melissah's professional input prior to the most important interview of my life gave me the focus and confidence I needed to ace the interview and get an amazing job. "Empowering strengths" really is what Melissah does. Working with her throughout the interview process gave me so much confidence. She is an astute, intelligent professional with excellent insights into how to present yourself as the unique individual that you are. She is worth every penny, and her prices are extremely reasonable for the level of service that she provides. For anyone who wants to be the best they can be, she can help you to own your strengths and present them with confidence. A+ from this happy (employed!) camper.

I couldn't have done it without her!

Contemplating a career change can be a period of self-doubt and stagnation, but Melissah mobilized me to embark upon my career transition, and provided the reassurance I needed to ensure that I was heading in the right direction. She was extremely organized and always well-prepared for our sessions. Her structured approach helped me make steady progress at a pace I was comfortable with. I especially appreciated that she didn't just guide me through what to do, but how to do it, with attention to the details. And throughout the whole process, she was incredibly warm, supportive, and responsive to my individual needs. I couldn't have done it without her!

She was the best investment for my career and professional life

WOW is all I can say about Melissah! She is an extremely talented professional that has helped guide me in the right direction to land a job in this horrible job market. She gave me the confidence to succeed and because of her guidance and support I can proudly say that I got a job. I was offered 2 positions and had to decide which one was best for me. All great things take time in life and it is extremely rewarding to work hard and receive the greatest gift of all.

Melissah not only gave me the tools to succeed and land a job, but she helped me with patience and know that everything happens for a reason. She was the best investment for my career and professional life. She is someone that I will remain in contact with because she has touched me emotionally and is very empowering.

Melissah gave me the key to success for my professional career! I feel stronger than ever and can achieve anything that I put my mind to.

I highly recommend working with Melissah because she will change your life in such a positive way!

I successfully applied the job search strategies she taught me!

After working with Melissah, I felt much better prepared as a job seeker and I successfully applied the tips and job search strategies she taught me. Melissah is very warm and friendly and I can tell that she genuinely cares about her clients. She is also very professional and very knowledgeable. I also really appreciated how she was able to offer her services remotely! This is such a great incentive for people with tight schedules or for people who live out of the area. Her insight is so valuable. People should know that they won't regret hiring her. With Melissah's help, I was offered a fantastic job! Melissah is AWESOME!

Melissah is an absolute gem. She helped me increase my self-confidence and helped me develop a tool bag full of anecdotal stories that I could apply to a multitude of interview questions. She also guided me to highlight certain traits about myself and accomplishments that would make me a better candidate and helped me to become comfortable with the institution I was interviewing for. Melissah also made interviewing prep that can be overwhelming and intimidating very tangible and achievable. She is warm, welcoming and professional! Working with her will increase your chances of acing an interview exponentially. Be proactive and take advantage of an amazing opportunity. The end result was I got my dream job!

I recommend Melissah whole-heartedly to anyone in search of honest and constructive feedback in preparation for a job interview. The investment in Melissah was absolutely worth it for me, and I have no doubt that future clients will feel the same.

She really knows her job and does it so well. I also felt that was she very dedicated to me and just made me feel very special. Melissah is an absolute treasure!

I received six job offers while working with her!

I decided to contact Melissah after reading so many positive reviews about her. First, I used her resume and cover letter package to revise my documents. With my new revised resume and cover letter, I was able to land a few interviews at very good hospitals like VA hospital in Palo Alto, Duke University hospital, Memorial Hospital of Gardena, UCLA-Harbor Hospital, St. Luke Hospital in Texas, Wyoming Medical Center in Wyoming, and St. Alexius hospital in North Dakota.

I also used Melissah's coaching services, the online coaching program and the one-on-one coaching package. Melissah was so pleasant to work with! She was very patient with me since I have had no interview experience before. She also was very kind to take out valuable time from her hectic schedule to help me with deciding about a job offer. Her coaching services were incredibly helpful in transforming me from a shy candidate into an articulate, confident, and well-rounded candidate. I received 6 job offers while working with her!

I guarantee you will find her services helpful and not only she will help you land job offers, the knowledge you learn from her is invaluable and the confident attitude that you will gain will be with you forever. Thank you, Melissah, for all your encouragement and help!

I now feel much more prepared to be in full control of my career!

The time I spent with Melissah in finding my ideal career has been truly eye-opening. Melissah believes that success in one's career comes with aligning one's passions with one's strengths and values. Throughout the career search process, Melissah provided me with very helpful feedback, guidance, and support as I told her about every self-discovery. She took the time to listen and digest everything I told her. I now feel much more prepared and am knowledgeable enough to be in full control of my career choices. I highly recommend her. Thank you Melissah!

IT IS WORTH IT to work with Melissah! It's an investment that will build your confidence in a new way

Since working with Melissah, I have achieved much more than just landing my dream job. It truly is an art to be able to present yourself professionally without losing your identity. She not only built me up to be confident in "my story", but taught me to how present it in an honest, fluid, personal and professional way that would be intriguing to whoever would interview me. I believe these skills go much further than just for interviews. I know that now as I have a job in the "real world" I will be able to use these lessons to present myself to my bosses, colleagues, etc.

Each minute was well spent. Her service is QUALITY service. She is organized, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and not just a "coach". Though that is one part I love about working with her, she provided much more than encouragement. (we all need that too!) She thought of things that I would never have thought of or would have "missed" going into my interviews. She was readily available and provided constructive feedback.

After the first session I knew that even if I didn't land the current job I was applying for, it would STILL be worth it. (Note: I did land the job!)

IT IS WORTH IT to work with Melissah! Don't hesitate because it's an investment that doesn't promise a job. IT WILL LAND YOU A JOB SOONER THAN LATER. And it will build your confidence in a new way. Just do it!

Choosing to work with Melissah was one of the best decisions and investments I have made!

I heard and read some amazing reviews from people that were in my position, who used Melissah's services and landed amazing job opportunities. I decided to contact Melissah for help regarding my resume and cover letter. Her responses were prompt, polite, and professional. She was very accommodating to my goals and my schedule and I soon had the tools necessary to revamp my resume and cover letter. Melissah has such a keen sense of being able to determine your greatest strengths and assets and highlight them in the best way possible. I received several compliments on these documents by my colleagues and they all wanted to get on board with these services!

With my new and improved resume and cover letter, I was quickly able to land several job interviews. I was finally standing out and being noticed by employers, and opportunities began flooding in! I was so impressed by Melissah's work that I decided to utilize her interview coaching sessions. I was very nervous to practice my interviewing skills in front of someone, but she immediately made me feel at ease. Melissah is extremely warm, friendly, and has amazing tips for answering those tough questions! With her help, I was able to create perfect interview answers that hit every point and even had some extra bonus words that really seal the deal.

Going into my first big panel interview at a very prestigious hospital, I felt confident and ready. I was able to answer each question with such depth, personality, and confidence. From that panel, I was offered 3 amazing interview opportunities and was offered 2 RN positions from those! It felt great to be able to choose the unit I wanted! I even had to turn down 2 other great interview opportunities with another big name facility. I never thought I would be in this type of position and I know that I would not be here without the help from Melissah. I am proud to say that I will be starting my nursing career at Stanford Hospital! (And I don't have to move away!)

Choosing to work with Melissah was one of the best decisions and investments I have made. I truly believe that this made the difference in my new nursing career. If you put in the work, you will see amazing results and hidden opportunities will start flowing in! Thank you so much Melissah! You are truly amazing at what you do! ๐Ÿ™‚
