Getting a job is hard
when you're trying to
do it all on your own. 


It's much easier with a little help from a friend.


Hi, I'm Valerie

I know exactly how you feel. I put myself through college, lived on my own, and paid all my own bills. I needed a job right after graduation just to keep my head above water. I was terrified I wouldn't get a job.

I prepared for my first interview like I was preparing for the interview Olympics. I managed every aspect of my search all on my own and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

I got the job I wanted even though I was not the most qualified.

Then, during my career as a Human Resources professional, I interviewed and hired hundreds of people for all kinds of positions. I know what works to get a job offer and what doesn't.

Now, I work hand-in-hand with people to successfully navigate a job search. Because it helps to have someone on your side.

"My daughter was about to graduate from college and she had no idea how to do a job search. Valerie created a search strategy, helped her with her resume, taught her how to interview, and checked-in with her every step along the way. We were thrilled when she landed a job that will get her started on her career!"

Daughter's First Professional Job

"I took some time off while my kids were little and I wanted to get a job in my field after they started school. Valerie helped me create a resume that highlighted my skills, coached me on what to say about staying home, and gave me the encouragement I needed to believe in myself. I got a job close to home that's perfect for me."
