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

For Irene, shared knowledge is power.

Irene personifies the truly successful executive in a way few others do. Over the years, even as her company continued to grow, she always made time to contribute to our industry, keeping her finger on the pulse of the rapidly-changing career development world. Irene is always on the alert to identify meaningful questions from colleagues. She does more than just answer their immediate needs. She’ll use their question to craft an answer that best explains the issues and offers strategies and tactics that move people’s careers forward. Irene is one of the few who have elevated that old saying, ‘knowledge is power,’ to its true level. For Irene, shared knowledge is power. She’s quick to share proven insights. In short, when people talk about a ‘force multiplier,’ they are describing Irene.

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.

P.V., Senior Director

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

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 – with everyone being happy with the results. I highly recommend Irene for help with career development, and with analyzing and managing specific business issues.

J.C., Senior Director of Marketing

I made the correct choice…

I took Irene’s help for developing my professional resume in 2005. I did not know Irene before and she was the one I chose to take a chance with to help develop my resume. I made the correct choice and Irene did not disappoint me. Irene was very professional in her approach, with a good method to extract information from me to help develop a compelling resume. She gave lots of practical and relevant advice on how to market myself as well. For someone who has never had resume writing experience before, or wanting to update one after a long time, I would strongly recommend taking a look at what Irene has to offer. Like me, I am sure you will have made the right choice.

R.K.C., Head of Infrastructure

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

She identified qualities that I did not realize I possessed…

I hired Irene to assist me in creating a resume for my job search. She identified qualities that I did not realize I possessed, and craft a clearly written, eloquent resume. I found her personable and very knowledgeable.

M.G., Slideshow Presentation Designer

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

I was really pleased…

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!

She knows how to work your best skills into your resume.

She is truly an expert and a pleasure to work with.

Irene is a wonderful speaker. She led a program on creating a focused resume for the San Francisco Professional Career Network that attracted the largest crowd we’ve had to date and which was uniformly praised by its attendees. A few of the comments we received included, “Wonderful presentation”, “Very concise, logical and helpful information”, “Extremely useful”, “Incredibly relevant to my job search”, and others. Over the past year or so, I have attended many programs of a similar theme; Irene’s content and practical advice are among the best. I would encourage anyone wishing to enhance the resonance of their resume or who are seeking career advice to speak with Irene or attend one of her programs. She is truly an expert and a pleasure to work with.

G.K., Chief Financial Officer

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. In both projects, 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, interview preparation, and assistance with various types of business communications. She has been an invaluable resource in guiding me through a difficult job transition. Irene is unfailingly honest and thorough in the way she sets about each task. Her choice of words is always eloquent and concise. She treats her clients as individuals and never falls back on a “one-size-fits-all” approach to career counseling. Looking back upon several junctures of my career, I would find it difficult to imagine what I would have done without Irene’s services (tangible and intangible alike). I give her my highest recommendation.
