After speaking with me, and taking the time to understand my career path, Nicole provided me with a resume, and updated LinkedIn profile that better captured my brand.

Communications Consultant

"Before working together, I had a lack of focus in my job search and my resume/CV and answers to interview questions were too detailed. I had low confidence and high stress - would I ever get an interview, let alone a job? The coaching sessions were perfect. Lee has a sparkling personality that makes her easy to talk to. Lee's coaching on my job search including resume/CV has landed me more interviews that I expected. The interview role playing and debriefs have improved my interview performance, while encouraging me to assess the suitability of the position for my own requirements. The HeartMath tools and coaching helped me block out negative thinking and focus on positive tools - I rate them a 10/10! The Skype technology facilitated the coaching - I did not hesitate in reaching out to Careers by Design for their coaching expertise."

"Before the Turning Point session, I was stressed, negative, not confident and didn't know where I was going in my career. Coaching with Careers by Design helped me achieve the confidence and self-worth I always had but never was able to realize before. I came out of this a stronger, more confident and relaxed individual than I was just several months ago. Coaching is unbiased. It is where someone listens and guides you based on the problems or dilemmas you have. I have gone to friends and colleagues looking for answers and realized that wasn't the right way to do things. It was confusing and they guided you into a direction you weren't suited for or comfortable in. I am glad I went for coaching." The HeartMath tools helped me immensely. Can I rate it as 100 (out of 10)! I will continue to use them throughout my career progression."

"I love my work and felt the necessity to refocus myself and take time to reflect on my skills, weaknesses and achievements in my current role. I took the opportunity while I have a rewarding and pleasant job to completely redo my resume. I had no hesitation hiring Careers by Design. I liked the fact that you were experienced, flexible, centrally located and had coaches that worked in the same industry as me. Coaching helped me to ask questions about the industry I am in in terms of responsibilities I want to explore. It reaffirmed that I chose an industry where I can flourish and contribute in a variety of ways. Coaching helped me built a powerful and meaningful resume using the PAR method which takes time so I am glad I was in a position to work on it without the stress of being unemployed. I am very grateful for the advice I got from Lee and I am very proud of my new refreshed resume." Coaching also gave me the opportunity to explore additional options to include in my life in terms of other interests I have that are not related to my current field. Thank you Careers by Design! I now feel refreshed and exhilarated when I think about the future."

Through that process, I realized I wanted to get a third party to give me objective feedback on how I showed up in an interview. Careers by Design put me in touch with Jeanet, which is one of the best career moves I ever made. Jeanet gets it. Jeanet's mock interview's helped me master answering questions that I previously was not confident in my responses. Jeanet's incredible expertise in career strategy and as a life coach was very beneficial. I know our paths will cross again in the future, and I very much look forward to it."

"Highly recommended service. I’ve tried a few resume writing places including some big names but never felt truly satisfied with the final product. I've had a 25 year plus career and I think to really write about someone you have to take the time to know them and that’s exactly what happened at Careers by Design. I talked one on one with the actual writer for nearly an hour and explained what I did in my work and then she took that away and worked on it. After a few revisions, it sounded so good I felt on top of the world. Someone had finally been able to explain all the things I did in my career in just a few words and it sounded great. Two weeks later I had the job I was gunning for so I know this works. Kudos to Careers by Design."

"I felt my coach was very easy to talk to which made the discussions very easy and not so clinical. It was comfortable to open up about things that I didn't necessarily want to face, but needed to. I was given ideas and feedback that I will always remember and continue to use in my day to day searches. The HeartMath is a great tool to keep with you at all times. Easy to use and only takes a few minutes of your time. I have passed on some of the info to friends and family in hopes that they will use it to make their lives less stressful and happier. I wish I had known about this technique in my previous career as it would have given me the opportunity to tackle some challenging times a lot easier. This is something that I hope to take with me and utilize in my future."

"My strongest feeling prior to coaching was mainly of disorientation. I was looking for guidance on which direction to take my skill set. I felt no hesitation in hiring you. I was eager for your insight and what I found unique was the human touch: your method was wonderfully organic, not mechanical like other Career Counseling systems. Coaching has taught me to value myself more. This has helped my confidence level. The HeartMath tools were astoundingly effective, and reached directly to the core of what I was trying to work through. It brought about a wave of emotion that I had been tamping down on thus I was able to clearly see my true issue."

Her natural compassion and empathy was essential in my finding direction and cultivating confidence when I faced a difficult Internship search for my final year of graduate school. Her heart-based approach and deep knowledge of mindfulness-based practices helped me gain a clear awareness of my career goals, strengths, and abilities, such that I chose to work with her directly to learn more about her unique practice of career development and leadership. I observed Linda working with a variety of students one-on-one and in groups. She was able to address each student’s fears and doubts, and gently yet firmly help them through their blocks regarding their career choices and futures. I highly recommend Linda as the leading career counsellor in Boulder and the Boulder County area."

My coach helped me to feel confident about my decision and write a strong application. She helped me to describe my technical experience in easy to understand language. I got into the program of my choice at the top business school in Canada and also received a scholarship. After graduating, I went back for coaching and did the job search program. I wanted a job where I could use my skills and get paid well. It saved me a lot of time and effort- I didn’t have to figure it all out myself.

"I have worked with Careers by Design over the past 4 months, as I was in a career rut and questioning my choice of being a creative professional. In the shorter term, Lee taught me powerful HeartMath stress management techniques that helped me feel better day to day. I thought the HeartMath tools were incredibly effective - I would rate these tools as a 10 (out of 10)! Once I had improved my mindset, I was able to focus on long-term career planning and strategy. Lee provided an invaluable third party soundboard, detached from my family and workmates, to truly help me evaluate my situation and the viability of staying put. All told - it was by no means an easy journey - I had to take an honest look at myself, and evaluate what I was able to personally change. In the end, I got a $10,000 raise and a promotion. I would highly recommend Careers by Design to any professional looking to advance to the next level in their development."

"It felt like finding a job was a monolithic task before the coaching began. I really appreciated starting the process by looking at what was important to me and using the exercise as an opportunity to achieve congruence between what is important to me and my working life. And also, having someone support these choices was very valuable. Lee has a marvellous knack of connecting the dots and offering an alternative way of approaching the task. I liked the fact that Lee brought a fresh perspective to an issue and shared her insights about why something worked or didn't."

"I didn’t have a career before I decided to try career counselling. I was a college graduate who had dedicated her whole life to the idea of one perfect job. I chose my college program based on the idea of one career I thought would make me happy for the rest of my life, only to graduate with the realization that I didn’t want the job that I’d set all my hopes and dreams on. I was heart-broken, insecure, down on myself for wasting so much time on what ended up being a bad fit, and completely, utterly lost in what I wanted to do next with my life. Career coaching put me through exercises that helped me with every single one of the problems I was dealing with after the fallout of graduation. The process really focused on exploring what was most important to me and revealing what my skillset actually was. It narrowed the field of what I imagined I could do with my life when I was questioning where I was supposed to be going. I was connected with real people in the fields I was considering, given resources and advice for tackling the parts of the coaching process I struggled with, and having the option of online counselling through Zoom was a convenient and effective way to touch base with my coach without having to stress about being on time or the question of transportation since I don’t have a car. My coach Pat was nothing short of empathetic and encouraging. I struggle with mental health issues, which made later steps in the coaching process more difficult to tackle on my own. But she was always understanding whenever I expressed any difficulties I was having, and she worked with me to tailor my experience to take my anxiety into account. I never felt judged or shamed for my shortcomings, and her support through my low-days was unforgettable and uplifting. I highly recommend Careers By Design coaching. It is absolutely worth it."

"Careers By Design truly changed the direction of my career. After being unemployed for over 6 months, I was completely unmotivated to continue searching for new jobs, and often thought about pursuing a different career path. Someone mentioned that I needed to see a career counselor and I figured it was about time I did something like that. After being coached, everything completely changed for me and I instantly felt a boost in my self-confidence. With the help of their services, I figured out my next steps and got help with resume writing and even my social media profiles which I had no idea I had to do. Going through interviews was never easy for me but I did feel a lot more confident and I am pleased to say that I have landed a new job where I feel happy using my skills.

The nature of my career path is unique and I needed a specific brand of guidance to move forward. Careers By Design's approach stands out by customizing their services to each person and their career stage. Working with my career counsellor, I received empathy and the encouragement I required to move forward from someone who had gone through similar challenges. Learning to practice mindfulness and working from the inside out reduced my stress and I was able to make better decisions.

I worked with Linda for nearly 8 years when she was Associate Director for Counseling at the Career Services office for the University of Colorado Boulder. Personally, I have never met a career counselor like Linda (in all nineteen years of working in Career Services) who is more vested in assisting clients finding their own wisdom and truth. (I’ve worked with at least 49 career counselors between three offices since college.) Linda is an amazing listener and understands her clients’ needs. In fact, during her time at CU, several alumni wrote me (unprompted) and asked if they could provide references about our counseling services (after seeing her), as it had a major impact on their lives. Also, Linda won the National Career Development Facilitator Champion Award, from the National Career Development Association in 2015!

I was unaware about how to create a career that fits for me and the necessary steps that I need to do to get myself there. The coaching sessions brought a deeper level to my exploration and the various careers that are available to me. Now I feel that I have a plan and a series of tasks that will make my goals more manageable. I really enjoyed looking at a career as something that incorporates the other values and aspects of your life. By doing this I feel that I am more confident and focused in my career goals.

This shook my confidence and left me directionless. I knew I needed to make a change but I was feeling stuck.I had always been successful by being true to myself. I needed to do something different, something that was “me” but I didn’t know what that was. Participating in The More Happy Mondays career coaching program at Careers by Design gave me the tools to feel more positive and handle this stressful situation better. All this boosted my confidence so I could take the next steps to get out of a difficult situation. My coach helped me to explore my options and I decided on a new direction with confidence. Learning more about myself helped me to leverage my skills and experiences and use them to start a new venture that is off to a strong start. I highly recommend Careers by Design to anyone who wants to start feeling better now and have a career that really fits who they are."

"Pat was a great motivator from the start. I felt a quick connection with her and it continued to grow. Pat's confidence in her communication skills was noticeable right away. Conversations between us always felt like they had direction and meaning. Pat did an excellent job staying personable and engaged. I felt listened to and comfortable. Pat helped me to find direction but more importantly helped me find confidence in my skills and experience. I feel like Pat has that balance of professionalism and gregariousness that is hard to come by."

"Highly recommend! Linda was an exceptional coach through a difficult time. Being in a transitional phase of my life, I was unsure how to invigorate my job search. She was consistently engaged, patient and encouraging as we explored my skills and interests. She offered wonderful advice throughout the process and recommended some essential next steps. Together we built an incredible strength statement which I can draw from and a solid strategy for my resume/cover letters/interviews that will be invaluable in the coming months. I can't say enough good things about her kind and insightful approach. Thank you!"

"It was my first time using a professional resume writing service and I was more than happy with the results. I don’t believe I would have come to the same outcome working on my own. This is definitely a service I would recommend to anyone seeking out better employment. Tammy incorporated the different direction I’m considering in a career change which was a challenge for me to put on paper."

"I genuinely enjoyed the process of working with Pat to clarify my goals and learn how to more effectively meet various challenges. We dug deep psychologically, much deeper than I had expected a career coach would go with me, and every step of the way I felt that Pat really got me. This was an exercise in bravery, compassion, and self-reflection in which I felt seen and supported. I recommend Pat as a career coach (or anything coach) without reservation!"

I learned about aspects of a career that was of high value to me and Lee and I worked together to 'match up' these values and my skill set to my next career. I would highly recommend anyone looking for some guidance in their careers to call Lee!"

"After graduating, the concept of entering the workplace was a bit overwhelming. I wanted to make sure I was heading in the right direction to ensure lifelong learning, success and happiness. I wanted to make sure that I had the right goals for me in mind and the right tools to achieve those goals. Through working with Careers by Design I gained valuable perspective, focus and reassurance that I was on the right path. My coach helped me clarify my goals and gave me the resources I needed to ensure future success.I was surprised at how helpful the dedicated time of guided self-reflective thought was - something which Careers by Design's services provided. It is easy to put off this type of consideration, and having a set time and guidance made all the difference in giving me a refreshed sense of career confidence."

"I read a book by Sir Ken Robinson about two years ago on how finding your passion changes everything. The book really resonated with me to a point I made a commitment to move towards living life on my own terms, both in personal and professional. I knew beforehand that writing was one of my passions that I wanted to pursue as a career. With my coach, and working together on the self discovery process, it helped me to begin moving towards this life-long goal free of anxiety and self doubt."

"Careers by Design offers an extremely well thought out and comprehensive career program that led directly to my recent success. The coaching was compassionate, non-judgemental and highly skilled. They care deeply for their clients and their desire and passion for the work done shows through with their professional and positive attitude. I appreciated the thoughtfulness put into More Happy Mondays coaching program, which focuses not only on career development but also on the emotional and deeper side of the equation, which in my opinion is what makes the work so effective. The HeartMath tools I learned were easy to implement and allowed me to be much calmer and a lot less reactive during the normally stressful career transition period of time. I find them very valuable and I continue to use them every day to lower stress and anxiety."

I especially appreciate their approach to working on both personal and work issues. When I decided to find a career coach, my objective was to get some career guidance. I never really expected the positive impact that our sessions would have on both my personal and career life. I trust my coach - I feel very comfortable being myself during our sessions. Feedback from my coach is very valuable - a lot of great in-session and take home information.I am so calm and present during the sessions and always feel refreshed and rejuvenated after them. I am inspired by my coach and always leave the session filled with energy and hope. It's amazing to have something exceed your expectations. I am so thankful. You have such a balanced approach to coaching and it is a perfect fit for me."

Almost immediately, I was so impressed by how my coach, Pat, pivoted my perspective on choosing the right career path for me. We dissected my values, my professional/academic past and even practiced some stress relief techniques that are truly effective. After my 4 sessions I found a job that I'm really enjoying so far."
