Michele M. Coneys, Job Placement Counselor

The Women’s Center at CCM County College of Morris

I worked with Linda in preparation for an interview with a major corporation. Linda was able to identify key elements of the job spec and clarify my skills and respond clearly and effectively in order to stand out from the crowd. She reviewed my resume and identified skills that met with the job requirements. Then a mock interview during which Linda asked directed questions and listening closely to my responses. She then gave insightful input as to how better to word my responses and present myself over the phone. The outcome was an interview that was stress free because I was prepared. Linda is very professional and I highly recommend using her services.

After attending the Gen Y workshop at the Chatham Public Library last week I purchased your CD “The Age Old Issue of Age”. I just wanted to let you know that I learned so much from it and saw myself making some of the mistakes you spoke so eloquently about. I am better prepared to go into my next interview which is this Friday. Thanks for your guidance!
