Before working with Christine, I was a Territory Business Manager with a solid track record of producing results. Over the years I had enjoyed what most would consider a successful career, but after a while the position started to feel robotic. My salary and benefits were pretty good so I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to land anything better. However, the little voice in my head was saying “I want to be excited and passionate about what I’m doing every day!” I decided to see if I could find a job that was more fulfilling and could increase my salary too. In the past, I had done typical interview preparation; this time I knew I needed more in order to compete against the very best, and win.
I hired Christine and I was more prepared than I ever could have imagined. She helped me uncover things about my strengths and my experience that I had never thought to highlight. I was able to verbalize exactly what I had to offer and how I could contribute to the success of the company I interviewed with. The information we uncovered about the company and the position showed me I was a perfect fit and helped me tailor my answers toward the pressing issues the company and manager were facing. I have never felt more confident or powerful in an interview. I actually loved the whole process!
I got the job as a Senior Account Manager! I received a 10% increase in my base salary (a 5-figure increase!) plus an unexpected signing bonus! I try to recommend Christine to everyone I know because her ability to help people rock their interviews is amazing. If for any reason I need to interview in the future, she will be my first call!

I have always been someone that works hard, more than my fair share, but never asking for credit, and always acting like what I did wasn’t a big deal. I finally got to the point where I started feeling resentful. I knew people around me were making more even though I was the one working hard and producing results.
I started working with Christine and made the decision to go for a promotion, either internally with my company or externally; either way I was ready for more. An opportunity opened up internally and I applied immediately. While working with Christine, I owned all of the hard work I had been putting in and everything I had contributed to my team and company, for the first time in my career. I approached this interview differently than ever before. I was confident; I knew without a doubt that I would thrive in the position, and I was clear on what I wanted for an offer.
I was excited to get the job offer, however, it was lower than I anticipated since they were going off of my current salary, not the experience I brought to the position. This was my moment of truth. I promised myself and Christine that I would negotiate for what I knew I was worth. I think it surprised the hiring manager since the offer was significantly higher than my current offer. I made my case that, because I was getting underpaid to start with, I wasn’t willing to settle and just go along with it anymore. Christine gave me the courage and the confidence to go for it and I ended up getting a 30% increase in my salary! I am forever grateful!

I recently had an interview with a company experiencing explosive growth. Because of what I learned from Christine, I was able to immediately identify the CEO’s biggest need and then talk about my direct experience in the same type of situation. Honestly, it was a direct hit; a homerun! I was able to highlight my passion for this type of work and my strengths, and the conversation was so natural and alive. The recruiter said he was moving me right along in the process.
Christine, before we worked together I felt like I was floundering all over the place. I just can’t thank you enough, for helping me get my confidence back! You helped me focus and without your help, I wouldn’t have been able to do what I did. Thank you, thank you!!!

I had been an RN for a number of years and really wanted to get into management. I wasn’t sure if anyone would even give me a chance since I didn’t have any “specific” management experience. It had also been more than 7 years since my last interview and I dreaded the questions they may throw at me. Working with Christine helped me get clear and excited about what I had to offer. She taught me how address my strengths and experience while effectively overcoming any objections of me not having actual management experience. I loved asking the Magic Question! I know it was instrumental in me not only getting the job, but also getting an amazing offer! Thank you, Christine!
