Still have questions?
Maria is a topnotch career coach, mentor, cheerleader, advisor and friend. She is smart, easy to work with and best yet - her process works! She helped me with the transition out of television into corporate communications. I am thrilled with my new job and career path and I've never looked back, thanks to Maria's help. I highly recommend her!
- Sarah von Fischer, Former TV Reporter
The confidence I gained through working with Maria is everything. After more than two decades, it was difficult for me to see possibilities outside of a newsroom. Maria instilled in me a belief that whatever career I wanted to explore next, was well within my skill set. I now work in communications and am home with my little boy at night for the first time in years.
- Heather Lerman, Former Anchor/Reporter
Maria's coaching has been invaluable. Her concrete advice and very specific feedback have helped me better articulate my skills as a journalist and find the language that the corporate world understands and values. I now feel like I have the tools I need to succeed in my job search: a compelling and well-thought-out resume, a strong cover letter that explains my value, and persuasive answers to any interview question.
- Erin Kennedy, Former Anchor/Reporter
Bottom line: hiring Maria was one of the best professional decisions I've ever made. We worked together after I secured an interview for an executive-level communications position. As someone who also transitioned from media to corporate communications, she was immediately able to identify the best strategies for me to exploit my unique expertise. From resume editing, to interview prep, to just a pep talk - her assistance was essential to me securing the position.
