What LaKiesha's Clients Say

For career coaching services.

LaKiesha is someone that took the time to hear my frustrations with my career. I loved the company I was working for, I loved my job, and I especially loved the people I got to work with. The issue, for me personally, was I did not feel passionate about that particular job. I would like to say again, the job was amazing but I honestly felt like it was just not for me. Maybe in the future it will be the perfect job, one never knows, especially with the great coworkers and management I had. When she heard me out her two pieces of advice (there were many but I’ll only mention two in order to keep this as short as possible) were to find out what I did feel passionate about, at this time in my life, and to convey that passion in the job interviews.

 I went through many job interviews before talking to LaKiesha and later when I used her advice things started to change. I was still being rejected for some jobs but I was also started to get some offers; the difference was either being offered a job or being a final candidate for most interviews. I finally accepted a job offer that best fit my passion and also expectations that I have for myself. There were many people (the list includes family, spouse, friends and former coworkers who I consider my friends as well) that helped me obtain a job that I am passionate and happy about. I can say LaKiesha was a big contributor to helping with this.
