CareerMode® was perfect for me to successfully prepare for interviews and actually it resulted in me landing a great job. Preparing for interviews alone is a very challenging task in my opinion. I believe you need someone to provide feedback on the answers you provide, giving you the opportunity to rework your answers in order to be successful on the interview day. With this in mind, it was extremely beneficial working with someone who has interviewer experience and has a great understanding of what companies are looking for in a candidate. Other than interview preparation, we worked on cleaning up my cover letter and resume to make it more presentable. All in all, CareerMode® was exactly what I needed to land the job I wanted.

Working with Karen and the CareerMode® program encouraged me to do a deep dive on my core competencies and to explore my strengths and interests during a career transition. I appreciated Karen's and her team's candor, positive energy and attention to detail, especially with my resume and board biography.  I highly recommend CareerMode® to anyone who is transitioning between careers or looking for new opportunities.

I had worked with Karen for many years, providing her outplacement services to my employees. When it was time for a career change of my own, Karen was my first phone call. Although I already had some incredible milestones under my belt, I did not have the confidence in my resume or my experience that I needed to pursue future high-level opportunities. That insecurity completely changed after our first session. Karen has a way of infusing confidence into her clients that they didn't know they were capable of. I would leave each session more inspired and more determined than I ever thought possible. Karen worked with me not only to polish my resume and my interviewing skills but most importantly she helped me realize the limitless career potential that I had never truly considered for myself! The confidence Karen instilled during these private sessions is something that has stayed with me as I entered this next chapter of my life and for that I am forever grateful. I would (and have!) recommend her services to anyone and everyone.

It was a pleasure to work with Karen Pappas of CareerMode®. I had never used a Career Coach before and was a little apprehensive. Karen was able to guide me in the right direction and open my eyes to how I could move into the right path with very simple strategies that I could incorporate into my daily routine. I would recommend anyone that I know to work with Karen so that she can help you reach your goals faster and create the path that is right for you and not one that someone chooses for you.

CareerMode® inspired me to reinvent myself and helped me jumpstart my professional career. As a first-generation American and first in my family to graduate college, I felt lost but CareerMode® supported me every step of the way. We worked on my resume, interview skills, and so much more. It was a truly empowering and personal experience for me. Thank you for the amazing, life-changing work that you do!

Karen is a brilliant career coach.  I recently worked with her during a career transition and, in the face of overwhelming career uncertainty, her work was invaluable in getting me back on track.  Karen provides clarity with ease, and her talents only seem to increase alongside the complexity of the problems she's given to solve.  Most importantly, Karen is genuinely invested in her client's success, and it's always evident that the solutions she provides are based on a wide breadth of knowledge and experience.
