Testimonials 

“I attended the LinkedIn Lollapalooza workshop with Jaime and I had a blast learning from her. Not only did Jaime went over the basic of LinkedIn, she also teaches you tips to stand out from other people in the world of marketing yourself professionally. Everything was well organized down to the details of the professional makeup artist, and photographer on site. Lunch and coffee was also covered. There was never a dull moment in class, Jaime is very engaging. I learned a lot and will be utilizing that in my LinkedIn profile.” Tracie Le, Military Spouse

 

“Where can I begin? I sent Jaime over a dusty old resume (with mostly federal experience) along with an amazing opportunity (non-federal) and I asked if Jaime could work her magic. Considering up until this point I’ve always done this myself, I was simply blown away with how she turned something bland into something extraordinary — and in 24 hours! She will be my go-to person for any/all resume updates, tweaks, and cover letters moving forward. She’s an amazing asset to the military/federal/civilian community.” Natalie Setareh, Entrepreneur, Military Spouse & Veteran

 

“As an adaptable and engaged senior leader with over 27 years of military experience, I was beyond nervous about transitioning to my next chapter in life and civilian career UNTIL I met Jaime who worked and volunteered her time to help myself and others. She is beyond amazing and equally skilled at translating our skills into both federal and civilian resumes and teaching and mentoring us towards our goals. I went from multiple resumes and jobs not referred to Federal, Contract and Corporate companies falling over each other to offer myself employment. I am confident, prepared and ready for the challenge now after Jamie’s mentorship and help. I would recommend her every single time to any service member transitioning out of the military and wanting another career. She is the best- plain and simple!”  Daniel Pinion, Retired Army Command Sergeant Major

 

“It was so refreshing speaking with Jaime. Not only did she give me some great pointers but also gave me great next action steps. Looking forward to implementing her advice and seeing what the future holds!” Military Spouse
