Cathy was a great resource for helping to get my son an engineering position post-graduation. She was the key to him being able to get into the job market and acquire his first professional position.
My son got good grades throughout his bachelor’s and master’s programs in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, but that didn’t seem to be enough to get employers interested in him. He was not fortunate enough to have gotten an internship and didn’t have many extracurricular activities in college.
We searched around for people who could help with creating a resume and coaching him for the interview process. Fortunately, Cathy was highly recommended by one of the coaching people in our area who was too busy to help at the time.
Cathy had regular sessions with my son over the course of several months. She started by creating a professional resume and getting his LinkedIn profile set up correctly. She sent him a notebook outlining the entire process he would be going through, so he knew what would be involved.
It became clear over the course of time that Cathy was teaching him the essentials that someone straight out of college would need in the job search process. I am sure that there were some challenging times for her, because even though my son is intelligent, he doesn’t communicate clearly.
She was always punctual, friendly, clear-spoken, and clear-headed. I never had a doubt that she was doing what she set out to do.
She always had the right answer both for me and my son. This was important because we had invested a significant amount of money and time in his education and needed results.
In the end, after Cathy coached him for five months, he was finally offered the quality job he had been seeking. He might have eventually gotten the position without her help, but there is no doubt that she taught him valuable skills that he will have for the rest of his life.
Thank you, Cathy. I am convinced that you made it possible for our son to get what he deserved.
