"Vicki was an open minded listener and excellent sounding board for ideas and concerns during my job search. She was professional and business focused in her approach, but took time to show empathy for my concerns. She was very responsive and provided quick turn around on questions and requests for input.
Vicki does not offer a 'one size fits all' service. When you are out of the workforce, even with a person who has a network, it is invaluable to have a truly objective business person which one could bounce ideas to and ask for input. Since I was looking to make a job change in late career, discussing my new goals with Vicki reassured me that those goals were reasonable and logical. I would recommend Vicki to others without a moment's hesitation"
