Resume Testimonials

Her process builds confidence

Irene has an excellent process to get the necessary input from her clients and take their resumes to a high professional level. Her process builds confidence that leads to better interviews and job offers for her clients.

R.L., Controller

I’m already seeing a difference

I employed Irene’s services as a resume writer to edit and reformat my document. This is not my area of expertise and the document was a mess and too long – four pages. But I was afraid to remove anything because I saw everything as being vital. Irene was able to take my resume down to two pages and yet it says exactly the same thing as my lengthy version did. She is amazing and I highly recommend her.

L.T., Orthopedic Surgical Assistant

Irene differs from all resume writers I worked with before

Irene differs from all resume writers I worked with before — she didn’t just put my own words in order. She talked to me about my present and past jobs and activities trying to find the values and experience that could be very useful on a particular job. It was a pleasure working with her.

A.M., Vice President

Her greatest assets are her collaborative skills

I found Irene to be extremely easy to work with and very responsive to my needs and questions throughout the resume writing process. Although her credentials and expertise are impressive, I feel her greatest assets are her collaborative skills and her ability to really listen to the client. I highly recommend Irene to anyone who is looking for a career professional.

I.B., Operations Specialist

Irene took my resume and profile to the next level

Irene assisted and coached me through updating my resume and profile, taking it to the next level. Even though I am in sales, I was finding it difficult to look within and sell my experience, skills, and assets to others. Irene took the time to review my professional career and crafted a profile that I am excited to share and utilize. I highly recommend Irene and her team… as Allstate says, “you are in good hands.” Thanks Irene!

A.S., Regional Director

Irene has an extraordinary amount of knowledge

I was referred to Irene by another career coach and I couldn’t have been happier and cannot recommend her enough. Irene has an extraordinary amount of knowledge on how to narrate your skills, talent and highlight your career in order to give your story a solid narrative. She has a perfect balance of support, patience and kindness and gave me the right amount of guidance and space to work on what/how I wanted to convey with both my resume and LinkedIn profile.

A.S. Director, Partnerships

Irene helped me land my last CEO role which turned into a $640M exit!

I have worked with Irene and recommended her to scores of people. What set her apart beyond cleaning up my resume, was her ability to probe and ask questions to unlock value around skills and character that I would not have seen in myself. I think all of us with many years of experience become accustomed to seeing ourselves in a certain way. Irene knows how to find so much more and translate it into a resume.

Irene helped me land my last CEO role which turned into a $640m exit. I get to do my next CEO role now for fun now and Irene helped make that happen.

T.D., Chairman of the Board

She knows how to work your best skills into your resume

Irene worked with me to re-write my resume in an updated and concise format. Two weeks later, I had a job offer and I am convinced that it was all due to Irene! She is a wonderful person to work with, has great ideas and really knows how to work your best skills and abilities into your resume.

Coaching Testimonials

Irene helped me realize what I really like doing for a living

Irene was a great help to me during my recent job search. She helped me totally revamp my resume and cover letter — which got me noticed by potential employers. Of equal importance, she helped me to work through my experience and skills to realize what I really like doing for a living.

C.A., Insurance Agent

Irene has guided me through all my career transitions over 15 years

Irene helped me to rethink my skills in broader categories that would be useful to organizations. She also supported me through the process of resume and cover letter optimization. She helped me with relocation decisions (US to the UK to Switzerland). Her broad experience, her good humor, and her ability to keep me “on track” have made her a really trusted advisor.

She is very compassionate, listens very carefully to your needs and where you are coming from. She is very knowledgeable and brings a wealth of experience. It has been invaluable for me to have Irene Marshall as a career coach.

B.S., Program Manager (Switzerland)

An Invaluable Resource

Irene has been an invaluable resource for me for the past seven years. I first approached her when I needed to revise my decade-old resume and create a LinkedIn profile for the first time. Irene helped me build professional documents which represented my experience and my career goals in the most compelling manner.

But she’s done far more than just that. Irene took every opportunity to get to know me as an individual professional. She gained an understanding of my goals and values to offer me intangible services including career coaching and interview preparation. She has been an invaluable resource in guiding me through a difficult job transition. Irene is unfailingly honest and thorough. Her choice of words is always eloquent and concise.

Looking back upon several junctures of my career, I would find it difficult to imagine what I would have done without Irene’s services. I give her my highest recommendation.

T.G., Senior Accountant

She provided insights on how to impress interviewers

Irene Marshall was recommended to me by a friend for resume writing and interview coaching. She was phenomenal in helping me shape my resume to better showcase my strengths, while also explaining common mistakes people make on their resumes. In my interview coaching sessions, Irene not only provided insights on how to impress interviewers through mock interviews, she also gave several general tips that could be applied to many different jobs.

Irene’s most shining qualities are her availability and refreshingly direct way of explaining the strong and weak parts of your professional profile. She teaches you how your resume and interview style reflect who you truly are. She has an engaging and respectful manner of guidance which betters your applications without coming off as condescending.

I would 100% recommend Irene for resume and interview coaching because she not only helps you shine in your application, but also helps you understand the application process from hiring companies’ perspectives. Her guidance and insights have been invaluable for me and I believe they will be for you too.

K.C., Manager

I highly recommend Irene for help with career development

I have worked with Irene on two occasions. Both times Irene provided excellent advice – listening carefully to what my concerns and needs were, then helping me identify what my next steps should be.

Recently, I approached Irene for help with a difficult business situation. In less than two days, Irene helped me determine how to turn the situation into a win-win for the companies and individuals involved. I highly recommend Irene for help with career development, and with analyzing and managing specific business issues.

J.C., Senior Director of Marketing

I had a much higher level of confidence

I reached out to Irene for help as I prepared for a very important job interview. I was very impressed with her probing questions and thoughtful suggestions on how to approach the interview. Thanks to Irene, I had a much higher level of confidence going into that interview and was able to proceed to the next step in the hiring process. I strongly recommend Irene to those who need guidance in their job transition.
