"Hi Laila, I want to thank you for all of your wonderful help on my resume. I was so pleased with the final product.

It didn't take me long to find a job, either. Through one of the first people I contacted, I landed a contract with Microsoft! I started last week and I think it's going to be great."

"Laila, I so appreciate your sense of humor, your natural gift for nurturing and guiding, and your resourcefulness. The way you help set high goals, and then act as an empowering and motivating force to make sure I get there is a tremendous gift. Thanks!"

"Without Laila's help, I probably would have been able to come up with my own mediocre resume, but it would not have turned out as professional, concise, or complete as it did with her aid. Due primarily to her assistance with my resume, I was fortunate enough to receive a job as an assistant account executive in one of the top advertising agencies in the region. I couldn't have gotten that on my own. Thank you."

"...If it weren't for your guidance in deeply and thoroughly helping me explore my career interests, I may have had to repeat the career search process over and over again.

Your open, warm and inviting personality really helped me in the process.  You listen... I felt like you were open to my way of going about things and molded the process to suit me. I didn't feel crunched into a box I didn't feel comfortable with.

The exercises in which I listed all the responsibilities for each job I've had, what I liked and disliked, all the possible careers, all the prioritizing systems ­ that was a turning point because I discovered that I was STILL interested in working with people. That was a big realization. Because we were so thorough I felt confident in my decision.

The preparation we did on outlining my professional experience, defining achievements, creating a resume, and preparing for interviews has been enormously helpful ...The two day interview process went well, and as a result, I got my first internship choice, over 16 other candidates!""   More

"As a result of working with Laila, I obtained employment in the field of my choice, making a salary significantly higher than I anticipated, with the benefits I wanted, in a substantially shorter period of time than I initially projected."

"...I wanted to thank you for believing in me to become a firefighter. You really urged me, when I didn't think it would ever happen. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have continued to apply. And I am so glad I did, because now I will be working for the Warrenville Fire Department! ...I am in the door! I will learn as much as any other full time firefighter in our classes, so that's great! I have you tell you that the physical agility test was very difficult, but I passed!! Luckily, I didn't lose my dinner! ;-) Thank you again!! "

"…Laila is like your own personal trainer, whipping you into shape. She breaks things down into more easily digestible pieces. Also her philosophy is not of choosing your career in a vacuum. All of the many things that were important to me; family, friends, physical health, paying the bills, etc were taken into consideration too.

for the first time I feel confident in the path I am taking… I feel so fortunate to have found Laila because I don't think I would have come to this decision without her coaching. If I would have, it would have been more painfully frustrating and taken more time. Worse, maybe I would still be where I was, floundering and unhappy, knowing I should make a change but not having the tools or insight to be decisive.

I would recommend Laila to anyone looking to hone in on his or her career aspirations!"   More

"These resumes have given me more confidence in my job search, have made it easier to set up interviews, and have been communicating a much stronger image of 'the serious, hard-working employee' to my prospective employers. Many thanks to you!"

"The power of coaching surpassed my expectations by 100%. I believe everyone can benefit from hiring their own coach and I’ve referred three colleagues to Laila this week to prove it."
