“I first discovered my advisor and Collegial Advising Services through Stanford Alumni Career Services. I’ve had the pleasure of working with my advisor to revamp my resume and establish my presence on Linked In. She doesn’t shy away from the challenge of helping career changers and veteran professionals alike navigate through the ever changing, technologically-mediated landscape of job hunting. She does so with patience, tact, and persistence. Not only did she do an incredible job of helping me to revise my resume but she also assessed my interests and helped me to explore alternative career pathways given my credentials. I appreciated the amount of time she invested in me, often going above and beyond the hour we had scheduled to undertake research on my behalf as well as coach me through the process of being a more competitive job candidate. I felt that our time together was extremely valuable, and I would highly recommend may advisor to anyone who is looking to get a competitive edge in their job search.” – Simone
“A friend recommended my advisor to help with my resume and LinkedIn page. I did not take that advice for a few months. Why? Because I had other people I knew tell me that my resume looked really good.
Finally, I decided to have someone with specialized experience look at my resume so I contacted my advisor and set up some initial meetings. After the very first meeting I regretted not contacting her immediately after the initial recommendation from my friend!
She worked with me to refine and make a much better narrative around my work experiences plus formed a smoother connection between resume and LinkedIn.
Don’t wait months like I did, or even weeks, to make your resume and online/social media profiles better!
Also, and this is important, my advisor was very pleasant to work with and made short work of understanding what I wanted to aim for in regard to my resume and social media presence. Thank you!” – Barry

Her expertise regarding what it takes to stand out among the competition—that special mix of skills, keywords, job duties, and networking savvy—has really helped transform my resume and approach to job hunting. As a result, I feel far more confident that I am putting my best self forward.
I would highly recommend her services for those just getting started in their careers as well as for those who are further along their vocational trajectory. As a matter of fact, I very recently recommended her to a friend of mine who, upon seeing my resume transformation, is now interested in her services.” – Lawrence
