It is important that you know I work with real people who are just like you – and that they are achieving results from my services. I love keeping in touch with my clients to find out how their job searches are going and would love to do the same with you!
When a project is completed, I ask each of my clients to consider how my services have helped and provide a link for a review, which they can offer as they wish. Below are the testimonials that my previous clients have shared with me and it is my hope that it will help you learn how a coach can empower you to find the job you want and deserve. These are real clients whom I have worked with and who have made significant progress reaching their career goals, including winning interviews and job offers. Some of these have been provided via independent reviews online or have been shared with me via email.
If you wish, you can contact any of the people who have provided reviews. Many of them also worked with me on their LinkedIn profiles, and you can feel free to connect with them there. It’s an excellent way to make a new contact! Or you can ask me for contact information as some have given me permission to be personally contacted through email.
Ruth is a gifted master of words. I hired Ruth because I needed someone who could clean up and reorganize my resume and LinkedIn profile. Ruth took in my career history and prioritized conversations throughout to get to know my personality and what I was aiming for in my career. From there, she did her magic and brought out the essence of me in words on my resume and LinkedIn profile. Ruth is worth her weight in gold.
I was really struggling during COVID after getting laid off. I just could not seem to break through and get noticed. I had used Ruth’s services before and gotten a job, so I figured I would talk to her again. So glad I did. She really stayed with me, and helped me through every step and I finally got a great job. She always creates a great resume that gets to the heart of the details. The recruiter even said it was a great resume.
I am truly honored to have the privilege of working with Ruth. She took the time to reach me on my level, and assist me in honing my interviewing skills which ultimately led me to a fantastic employment opportunity with a company that I was struggling to work my way into. I am overwhelmed by the wealth of knowledge and expertise that Ruth was willing to openly share with me. I would enlist her services in a heartbeat if I had to do it all over again. Put in the time and – effort to work on yourself, and along with Ruth’s guidance, you too can achieve levels of success you never thought possible!
Ruth is passionate about her clients. She truly cares and loves to see us find our next “Big Step” on our career journey. She is engaging in conversation and she listens. She has a great ability to guide us through our successes and knows what to present to catch the eye of prospective companies.
Ruth worked to help me understand my strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes. She not only built a great resume and LinkedIn profile for me, but also coached me to believe in myself and help me see how my experiences align with certain companies. If you need to dive deep into your past work experiences and really bring out the past successes that built your career, I highly recommend working with Ruth!
Ruth is a tremendous resource for help in overhauling a resume and building a LinkedIn profile. She is very knowledgeable about what it takes to get noticed by recruiters. Ruth is very pleasant to work with and willing to share her thoughts, ideas and experiences. If you are in a job transition, and need a fresh look to your resume or LinkedIn profile, I highly recommend Ruth.
I highly recommend Ruth as a career coach. She provides clients with concrete tools and advice to create a plan of action. Ruth truly understands the job search process, from the perspective of the job seeker and the Hiring Manager. With her trademark sense of humor, transparency, and insights of the current job market, clients can relax knowing they have an expert by their side for the entire job search process.
Ruth became passionate about my professional experience immediately. She knew I was struggling to effectively portray my depth of experience in writing for effective recruitment by employers. Once I had answered all relevant questions, she got to work on producing an excellent résumé, the best I have had in years. I immediately felt a higher level of confidence in applying for jobs. I highly recommend her work.
I felt so confident in myself after working with Ruth, after I was able to take a step back and look at my résumé and see just how accomplished a person I was. Ruth did that for me. And because I knew that and knew how to explain it, I got hired! Words cannot express how grateful I am.
When you said to me, ‘Okay, we got this. We are going to figure this all out and get you into these companies,’ I felt my whole body relax and I just felt so much better! Thank you, Ruth!
Ruth took the time to get to know me and understand my strengths and abilities. She overhauled my résumé, which was essentially a list of job tasks, and created an attractive, compelling document that captures the story of my career and the skills I’ve developed along the way. I’m very glad to share this updated and well-organized resume. Also, the process of working with Ruth gave me a boost of confidence in my abilities.
Ruth is an amazing, thorough, and professional résumé writer with an eye for bringing out your hidden story and value. Over the course of a month we were able to transform my résumé from zero to hero which helped me to land several interviews in a short period.
Ruth has a gift for listening to her client’s needs with real empathy, and for translating their background into words that accurately reflect relevant talents. Moreover, Ruth is the kind of professional coach who knows how to help her clients emphasize strengths without losing authenticity. I highly recommend Ruth to anyone who wants to fundamentally improve their career opportunities and job search prospects.
Working with Ruth was an excellent experience. Coming out of the military, I spent several years working with resumes that never seemed to achieve the goal of interviews. After realizing that my resume was not written and formatted correctly for ATS systems, I knew that professional help was needed. Ruth’s process was streamlined and collaborative. Upon completion, I was able to achieve a senior role almost immediately. Though this led to a COVID-19 layoff, her resume writing has now led to multiple new interviews in the first few weeks. A writer that you can connect with personally is key in this process. Ruth is the right person to partner with.
Ruth fit a wealth of resume advice and career guidance into a one-hour video-call! She led me through my resume and showed me exactly how to reformat its content for greater clarity and impact. Ruth also connected me to a professional in my career field, who in turn connected me to more professionals, resulting in exponential growth of my LinkedIn network. Ruth is very savvy – she will help you get past the resume bots so you can talk to real decision-makers. I can’t recommend her enough!
I worked with Ruth to gain a different perspective on my resume and LinkedIn profile. Her process is in-depth, starting with a questionnaire that pushes you to really consider the specifics of your experiences and organize those to separate experiences, challenges, and outcomes. I found that alone was a very helpful exercise, and her follow-up questions continue to force me to broaden how I represent myself. Ruth worked diligently to provide a revised resume and cover letter for me and was very helpful in reworking my LinkedIn profile. As a result, I have received an increased number of profile visits, searches, and additional contacts. I recommend talking to Ruth if you find yourself stuck in a rut with your presentation and/or your materials to explore how she can help.
In preparing for my nursing career, Ruth was super effective in organizing the details of my education and work experience. So effective that she helped me secure a position in a competitive nursing fellowship! I really appreciated her honesty, knowledge, and expert advice. She is a great coach and will help you get where you want to go in your career!
My experience with Ruth was amazing, I would highly recommend her to anyone for that personal and professional touch. Ruth is great at listening and helping you find out what it is you need. Ruth has a way of not only showing you talents and strengths you did not know you had, but she helps you expand on those you do. Thanks to Ruth’s coaching and I got the job.
