Making a major career transition can be challenging, especially if one doesn’t have industry experience. Even though I was doing well as a scientist in academia, I wanted to transition to the biotech industry to see how my work was directly effecting patient health.

To prepare for making this leap I looked into different career coaching programs and online resources. I was impressed by the webinars offered by Raymond, so I decided to take one-on-one career coaching sessions with him. We started in June of 2013. My goal then was to find a position by November.
By September, I had my new career. In fact, I found my dream position!

Raymond encouraged me to do an in-depth self-assessment to look at my skills and assess what I excel in. This helped a lot in figuring out what position and company might be the best fit for me.
Raymond knows exactly how to prepare a compelling resume and cover letter and most importantly, how to get your resume ahead of all the others and in front of the hiring manager. I learned valuable interviewing skills and felt comfortable and well prepared during my interviews.

I had my eyes on two different positions and before summer ended I had made it through every single round of interviews. I received a job offer from my number one company and accepted immediately. I was so happy and could not believe that my first job in industry would be my dream position.
What I enjoyed most about Raymond was that I could tell he truly cared about my career. He was so energetic, motivating, prepared, and approachable. I followed everything he taught me, and it worked perfectly. What Raymond teaches is so much more in-depth than any of the other career advancement material available out there. I can only recommend working with him!
