I recently had the pleasure of getting to know Irene while consulting with her on aspects of my career transition. Her firm came highly recommended to me and fully met my expectations! Irene is a veteran HR and career coaching professional who is extremely easy to work with and has a keen sense of the current job search market dynamics. Equally important, at a time when many in the transition field are aggressively trying to push their services, Tools for Transition operates with high integrity and will only try to sell you what you really need at a fair price.

An invaluable resource

Irene is an invaluable resource and expert resume writer. I first worked with her after six years in the teaching field. At that time, I was ready for a change of career. I only had a vague idea of what else I was interested in, plus no idea about my next steps. Irene was great at helping me figure out not only what I wanted to do, but also how to get there. I know I would not be at my current position without her expertise and guidance!

Irene helped me land my last CEO role…

I have worked with Irene and recommended her to scores of people. What sets her apart, beyond cleaning up my resume, was her ability to probe and ask questions to unlock value around skills and characteristics that I did not see in myself. I think those of us with many years of experience become accustomed to seeing ourselves in a certain way. Irene knows how to find so much more, then translate that into your resume. Irene helped me land my last CEO role which turned into a $640 million exit! I get to do my next CEO role now for fun now and Irene helped make that happen.
