JESS SMITH COACHING
I worked with Jess in preparation for my upcoming interviews. She helped build my confidence and knowledge of how to handle questions. I'm happy to report that I got a job offer in the middle of a pandemic and the company was so impressed that they created an entirely new role for me and will be paying me more than was originally discussed.
"From working with Jess, I achieved a focus and positivity that I previously didn't think possible. My job search went from being an emotional drain to being something exciting - the sky was the limit.
I'm now in a role that is perfect for me and has all of the components that I was looking for in a position, including almost doubling my annual compensation package.
I can't recommend Jess highly enough. I had my doubts about working with a coach - was it the right thing to do, did I really have the financial resources to do this - but they were all immediately put to ease. The skills and confidence that I gained through my coaching experience, not to mention my amazing new job, are the ultimate proof that Jess is the best!"
Working with Jess was an absolute delight. Her accuracy and professional knowledge is amazing. She understood exactly what I was trying to accomplish and quickly created sessions tailored to my goals. Her approach was clear and thorough, making it pleasant to work together. From the few sessions we worked together on, I was able to develop a clear and strong sense of how to approach interview questions using past experiences.
Working with Jess on my resume was right to the point. She was able to translate my experience to my resume in a way that would make sense to my target company. We worked closely together, reviewing every bullet point and word to make sure that they would grab attention and stand out from the crowd!
Jess’s Career Calling Course was great, and working with Jess was fun! Jess provides insightful career advice that we can apply to our job search - I especially appreciated the module on mindset. I’m excited to share I found a new job with even more opportunities to come! Thank you, Jess, for all you do.
Working with Jess was great! I was struggling with a particular issue related to my job search. We talked and she really help me work through the tactical steps and shift my mindset around it! She was very easy to talk with and helped me to overcome where I was hitting a wall.
What a blessing to meet and connect with such a delightful being. Jess carries so many qualities of leadership that she provides professional guidance and feedback that keeps me growing out of my comfort zone (to new heights!). Every time I connect with Jess, I feel heard and understood, and that she really cares. Jess has such a delightful way in supporting me in my growth to the next level in life that I feel that she has really been there for me. She opened my heart to new possibilities I never knew existed for me. As the career coach that showed me to be the best version of myself that I get to be, there is no one better. Jess is the best.
"Jess was absolutely amazing. As I was applying for positions at technology companies for sales roles, I needed help with my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. Jess managed all those with extreme professionalism.
She consulted with me on my past, and then point-by-point helped me with not just perfecting resume, LinkedIn and cover letter, but also how best to network with potential employers and articulate my relevant experience for the positions I was applying for.
Thank you Jess - I would recommend her to anyone looking to update their profile to perfection."
Jess is incredibly perceptive and insightful. Her gentle, compassionate approach makes it safe and so much more possible for me to dive into the stuff that isn't working for me and shift it. I have felt so supported and held in our work together. She's helped me lift myself back up in low moments and spur me on to greater heights when things were going well. She is a gem! I highly recommend her!
I participated in Jess's Career Calling Course and found it valuable in ways I didn't even expect. Not only did Jess provide lots of advice and actionable steps to take on all stages of the job search from resume building to the offer process, she also covered how to get in a positive mindset and handle the inherent frustration and doubt that comes with a job search. No other career resource I've used has addressed this piece of the process and it is so important! Learning how to ward off negativity has helped keep me motivated to stick with it.
The brink of a new livelihood and the pursuit of something more is a delicate place to be, and Jess is THE person to have there with you. She is committed to the success of her clients in the most important ways.
In working with Jess, her honesty, devotion, and passion is clear. She delivers hard truths and honest advice in a way that lands softly and effectively. Her method is comprehensive and thorough, a format that makes me feel I am supported in every step.
Her earnest desire for my success is paired with expertise and practicality that both assures me, and ensures I am making the right moves to secure a new career. Put simply, working with Jess is the best investment you can make for your future.
"Working with Jess changed the way I looked for jobs and helped boost my confidence. I started to get excited about looking for a job along with putting in the time and effort to prepare for my interviews.
Her work also helped me change my daily view on life. I became more positive and instead of getting overwhelmed and frustrated I took things one step at a time.
Jess showed me if I open myself up to opportunities they will find me. And that's exactly what happened. I now have an awesome new job that I hand picked to be aligned with what I want in my career."
I attended The Career Calling Summit organized by Jess where she interviewed many different career coaches. I have really enjoyed listening to the interviews not only because of useful tips given by the coaches but most importantly because of Jess. She has a gift of asking questions and going deep with helping people.
Jess is extremely knowledgeable and can answer all of the questions that any job seeker would have - answering all the doubts ranging from trivial questions to complex networking dilemmas.
