Coach Chandra accelerated the evolution of my resume and LinkedIn profile

I was able to commence my job search with confidence sooner than expected. Prior to seeking help, I was averaging 25 LinkedIn searches per week. Now I am averaging 85 people a week looking at my profile and there was one week where 186 people looked at my profile. Her cheerful and heart-full approach to the daily routine is a perfect complement to her collaborative style. I was always anxious to review each iteration of progress and move onto the next. She was always in complete control of where we were, where we were going and how we were going to get there. With full confidence I can attest that Chandra will apply the utmost attention and integrity in all aspects of your career coaching needs.   J.A.
