  • "Joy Jones was a tremendous aid in sterne library 20100910 1312020431preparing me for my scholarship interview. She not only asked me questions, but helped me work through solid answers to give.

Jami was able to provide me with application information on my jobs of interest and helped me devise a career strategy, that has greatly motivated and energized me. I am excited to work with Jami more in the future."
  • "Very useful, helpful, and firendly."
  • "Melissa was honest and very helpful. I left the meeting feeling very prepared for my upcoming interview."
  • "Ms. Trammell gave me very positive feedback on my resume and interview skills. I really appreciated her feedback and time in helping me to foster my professional skills."
