Client Testimonials

I have worked with countless clients in my 20+ years of helping people get jobs. Below, I’ve collected just some of the feedback I have received from dozens of people I have worked with.

My job search exploded…

Irene’s talk at the San Francisco Professional Career Network meeting really helped me focus my job search, which I had thought was already pretty well focused. As soon as I made some adjustments to my LinkedIn profile, resume and cover letters, my job search exploded and I’m now pursuing several excellent opportunities. I can only imagine that the results would be spectacular for people who engage her. I strongly recommend Irene to anyone who wants to clarify their career objectives and create compelling messages to achieve those objectives.

R.B., IT Project Manager

She is definitely a career coach I would contact again

I was recommended to Irene through another LinkedIn member for her ability to help craft a resume that gets results. I contacted her and after a few e-mails decided that she could help me. Her process does an unbelievable job of getting you to think about your talents in terms of a hiring company. She then takes the information she is able to extract from you and crafts a document that gets results. Within one week of posting her resume for me, it garnered a cross country trip for an interview for a high-level position. After securing a few more interviews, which I credit to her resume, I actually decided to “hire myself” and start my own business. However, if I ever find myself in the job market again, she is definitely a career coach I would contact again, without a doubt.

She has a way of keeping you realistic…

I have had the pleasure of being in the audience on two occasions when Irene Marshall has spoken and have come away equally impressed by the reach of her knowledge, her ease in engaging the audience and her willingness to support and encourage job seekers. She has a way of keeping you realistic without discouraging you from following a personal vision. Irene demonstrates her dedication to her craft with a humble and caring touch. Irene gets my enthusiastic endorsement.

J.D., Technology Manager

She helps me have peace of mind…

Irene has been very insightful and helpful at keeping me focused and staying on track. When I am stuck, Irene shows me how to get on track and build momentum in the process. Irene is an excellent sounding board for a broad range of questions. She helps me have peace of mind that I am moving in the most effective direction for me.

I would highly recommend her services…

Even though I am a sales professional, I was stumped on writing my own resume. Irene listened to me, asked lots of questions to determine my skills, and developed a customized resume that accurately reflects my experience. Finally, we collaborated together to put the final touches on the resume. I would highly recommend her services to others that need help with resume writing.

I was really pleased with the final version of my resume and have been happily sending it out to everybody I promised it to. Irene, thanks for your help in better articulating my story!

A.S., Solutions Management

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, as well as be attractive for HR manager. It was a pleasure working with her.

A.M., Vice President

She is responsive and collaborative

Irene has been an incredible help over the past five years as I have created and updated my resume, professional bio, and LinkedIn profile. She is responsive and collaborative in her approach to working with clients. I have engaged her on four separate occasions and look forward to her input in the future.

I have sent out the rewritten resume ten times and received 6 CALLS!

After sending out more than 30 resumes and receiving two responses, I was very frustrated. I knew I had the experience and results I needed to land a job in the $150K+ range, but I was not getting the response rate I had expected. I found Irene through ladders.com and quickly received a 2-page resume critique. After speaking with Irene, seeing her credentials and several examples, I agreed to the service. Irene delivered the resume in the time frame she committed and was very easy to work with through the first and second draft reviews. I have sent out the rewritten resume ten times and received 6 CALLS! I even resubmitted my new resume to two jobs I had already applied to and received a callback and interview from one that had already turned me down! MONEY WELL SPENT! I WOULD RECOMMEND IRENE’S SERVICES TO ANYONE!
