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.
"I was so happy and could not believe that my first job in industry would be my dream position."
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!
"I received a job offer from my number one company and accepted immediately."
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 could tell he (Raymond) truly cared about my career. "
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!
