Change is never comfortable or easy. When I began my search for a coach to help me find more success as I transitioned my career and after several interviews, I chose to work with Vennessa for several reasons. She was caring and open, listening to understand as I shared where I had been, where I was, and where I'd like to go or how I'd like to add value in my next venture. As she focused my thoughts and communications around my strengths, I was able to truly identify the next steps. She helped me establish a dynamic strategy during my search and develop a plan and then was there to nudge and encourage when it seemed like nothing was working. Soon, I realized the consistency in working the plan was at the heart of my success and so I focused more on developing a routine each day for refining my resume and reaching out to recruiters and those in my LinkedIn network as well as to explore other opportunities to succeed in my career. I've been able to build more consistency in exploring and discovering my next step and am moving in the direction I feel is true to who I want to be and become. She truly operates as a personal coach and mentor, showing she cares with each engagement to bring value through perspective and focus. I can recommend Vennessa to anyone that is ready to make the changes needed to take their career to the next level whether it be to get your next job or to start your own venture.

Vennessa and her crew rebuilt my resume and job search profiles at a time of great need and were immensely helpful throughout my search for new employment. The first words spoken to me by the firm that hired me were "I just gotta say, your resume is FANTASTIC!" I absolutely am eternally grateful to Vennessa and her team for helping me adjust to all of the immense changes that job hunting has gone through over the last decade since I looked for work seriously. They are gems and I unhesitatingly recommend them to anyone seeking new or improved employment opportunities!

Excellent job all around. The team assisted with three different resume views, cover letters, thank you notes, and revamped my LinkedIn profile. They spent the time getting to know me and built high quality documents. Very flexible with changes and attentive to questions. It was a pleasure working with Vennessa and the team. I appreciate their time and effort.

Thank you!
Support Operations at Door Dash (formerly Amazon Learning Manager)
I selected Vennessa after not getting the responses or results from my personal resume. After reaching out and completing a complimentary consultation, I knew I needed to take the plunge. This is my life, my career and my future, I needed to feel confident that the partnership was solid and that my goals were understood. I was fortunate to work with Vennessa McConkey, her professionalism, caring shone through from our first interaction. It was clear to me that she was not only passionate about what she does, Vennessa "owned" her role as my guide in creating a professional resume that caught the eye of those reading it, and reflected the things I am passionate about. I have experienced overwhelming success with my resume and seriously cannot thank Vennessa enough for investing time to better understand who I am as a person and professional. Vennessa challenged my thoughts on my goals and really helped me to narrow my focus to create a document that receives attention and action from potential employers. I am currently entertaining multiple job offers which will allow me to make a selection that best serves me, my career and above all else, my family! A huge THANKS to Vennessa McConkey on a job well done.
