I started working with Jane because I was unhappy at my job. I was considering changing career paths, but wasn’t sure where to start. I kept applying for jobs that I felt were a good fit but was making no progress. In our first session, Jane asked me to lay out a few 6 mo, 1 yr, and 5 yr goals. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was actually drawing a roadmap for myself that would lead me to where I actually wanted to be.
By the end of our time working together, I’d landed a new job that was much more in line with my interests and skillsets and started a side gig which was a direct result of the goals Jane had me set on day one.
It took me a little while to get on the right path but once I did, things finally started to feel right and I have Jane to thank for that.
If I find myself needing any consulting or coaching in the future, Jane will be the first person I call.Megan B., 32
Jane was amazing! She was able to calm me down and help to provide clarity and focus that I needed. She was able to get me thinking about my career in the long term and in ways I had never thought of before. I asked her to provide candid feedback and she gave me just what I needed. I’m very excited for my next session with Jane!Jessica A.
Last year as my annual review was approaching, I was seeking a fresh way to organize and convey my professional goals to the principal of my firm. Jane helped me clarify and structure my goals into a long term strategy that conveyed my progress thus far as well as my future potential as a professional asset.
A few months later, when I was hoping to negotiate a substantial raise, I reached out to Jane again. This was the first time where I was in the position to negotiate my salary and the task seemed daunting. There is a fine balance that needs to be sustained for success, and Jane helped me break down my negotiation process into logical steps to make the situation less intimidating. With her help I seamlessly negotiated a 25% raise.
Jane has helped my immeasurably with my career strategy, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her.Christina L., 31
My mind was running circles around the combination of skills that I possessed. I needed guidance on exactly how to clarify and eliminate the experiences that were not absolutely necessary for the job that I am applying for. Jane went beyond my expectations! She is committed to getting to know her clients from a professional aspect first, before even diving into what she has in store for your career road map. That professional, personable, and extremely beneficial approached sealed the experience for me.
Jane definitely has the edge for branding, creative flow, and powerful customized content to fit any job description out there! She blew me away with her expertise identifying strategies to communicate my value, experience, and success with a twist of innovative word choice that correlated with the chosen target market. Jane elevated my confidence to follow my path towards my highest goals and strengthen the leader already inside. She went above and beyond with her one-on-one sessions in great detail, provided incredible support, and formulated a resume/cover letter that is generating results!
I would recommend Jane to anyone! Jane is a true expert, who genuinely cares about her client’s success!Emily R.
Deciding to meet with Jane was probably the best career move I’ve made in years. She helped me re-brand myself and adjust my resume in anticipation of a career move from PR agency to an in-house position.Amy L., 29
Jane provided resources, reflection techniques and goal setting exercises that empowered me to kick-off my job search on the right foot. I came out of this session with focused objectives, clear action items and was able to outline expectations and identify criteria to help me stay true to my values and passions when evaluating new opportunities.
The session was very motivating and has really helped me stay accountable and on track with what I hope to achieve.Laura M., 30
First and foremost, I’d like to mention that Jane is incredibly skilled, an astute professional and a natural at coaching. She is simply the best I’ve encountered at this point. The session I had with Jane was very thorough and she really helped me to think about my career in a different way.
I will also admit that I was quite skeptical at first to work with a career coach. However, that has all changed after talking with Jane. I was very satisfied with the service I received and I will certainly be working with Jane again (very soon)!Justin W., 31
One thing that I took away from our [last] conversation is not to worry so much about what others will think and also not to be too hard on myself. I knew for several months that I didn’t want to continue in my business, but I worried that getting a full-time job meant I was a failure. Looking back, I think one of the biggest struggles was that my personality doesn’t mesh with being a solopreneur. Also, there’s no reason to care so much about what others might think—it’s an eternal struggle, right? I feel like I’ve been able to get out of my bubble a bit more now that I’m not working for myself, and I’ve realized that everyone else is just making it up as they go along, too.
It’s funny how getting your outside perspective finally helped me move on to this next phase in my life. Thank you for asking the right questions. Thank you for listening.
I really think what made our conversation so powerful was not that you gave me advice, but that you asked me the right questions so that I could hear myself say out loud what I truly wanted deep down.Emily C., 27
I had a long-time dream of moving to Europe but was unsure of how to navigate a new job market where I lacked a network. Not only was I looking for a visa, but I was also wanted to move out of operations.
Jane helped me get clear about what I wanted and tell my story in a confident, compelling way. She was also the best motivator during (many) times of insecurity and doubt.
Four short months later, I am moving to Berlin to work in strategic partnerships!
Jane has a gift for breaking down complex goals into manageable, achievable steps. She helped me realize how much I have to offer and has empowered me to build a life I love.
Danke, Jane!Nicole K., 31
I wanted to thank you for your Getting Unstuck workshop. Our 5 min 1:1 session was extremely helpful. Your interview tips were so helpful that I actually just accepted the job!!
Thanks for all your help and I will [be] happy to recommend you to any of my friends looking to get unstuck!Brittany C.
I hadn’t needed a new job for a decade and I knew the recruiting system had changed in the meantime. I felt like I needed someone really good to help me learn fast how to navigate my new job hunt a few months ago. Jane Scudder not only offered a thorough coaching service in the package hours I purchased but also assisted and supported me in between sessions via email, which is a priceless added value to her outstanding service.
Jane explained to me how recruiters choose candidates nowadays, insightful strategies to network during job hunts, and we also went through my resume and cover letters. I am now applying to jobs by myself, and I feel confident/optimistic.
I will totally go back to Jane’s coaching soon: to learn more strategies and go through my Linkedin page, if I don’t manage to get a job interview within a few weeks; to get ready for interviews, in case I land some soon 🙂 !!!
I highly recommend Jane’s coaching: she is the best and a wonderfully personable professional!Clara T.
I came to Jane pretty desperate for direction in my job search. Jane’s first step was to help me update and polish my resume. Where it had previously been something that most hiring managers would have probably tossed out at first glance, Jane’s direction and editing turned my resume into something I began receiving compliments on how professional and impressive it looked.
Jane also helped me with various networking and application strategies to the point where I landed a handful of interviews within the first few weeks of serious job searching. Without Jane’s skillful help and encouragement, I would have become lost and discouraged by the job hunting process. Because of Jane’s help, I was able to find a job within a month of serious searching. Not only that, but I found a job working at a start up in my desired field that was able to see my personality come through my application. Without Jane’s help, I’m not sure they would have looked twice.Nicholas L., 27
Booking an appointment with Jane was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and, frankly, I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner!
Jane gave me such guidance and support during our session and that made feel so much more confident in my career path. She focused on making sure my expectations and needs were met and she gave me ways to move forward on both a practical and ‘big picture’ level. She gave me questions to consider in advance and then followed up after the session with really helpful notes, tips, and resources so one session really felt like several days of important reflection and reconsideration. I finished our session feeling energized and inspired.
I’m excited to book another session soon!Mia G., 35
Jane was born to answer interview questions. At one point in the session Jane did a small role play as me in an interview – completely blew my mind the way she took all of my experience and rephrased it to promoting myself. I am the person who freezes up in interview situations and have a hard time speaking highly of myself. Jane helped me realize all of the work I have already put in, and she put it into actions.
My biggest concern was walking away still questioning what to do next, but with Jane’s follow up “homework” and goal setting tips – I am set up for success.Kristie R.
I’ve been working with Jane Scudder for six months now and have been really happy with the growth she’s helped me achieve. Jane challenges me, in a highly supportive way, to see things from a new perspective. She helped me discover effective and creative ways to focus on what really mattered and recognize my accomplishments as I was juggling a long-distance move, a new profession, and moving away from my sons. In addition, knowing I have to report what I’ve accomplished between sessions helps me focus and turn good ideas into solid action.
I highly recommend Jane Scudder as a coach!Lisa B., 52
Jane is absolutely wonderful….she made the most of our session time and truly focused on my needs. Following my session with Jane, I feel prepared and excited to begin my job search in a new career arena that I was so terrified to explore before. Additionally, I appreciate the timely follow up notes and action items she provided following our session. I am looking forward to checking in with Jane in the next 6 months.
Invest in yourself, and make an appointment. You won’t be disappointed!Alicia P., 29
I highly recommend Jane’s coaching services! At the time I sought Jane’s coaching expertise, I was going through a career road block where I was unsure of whether or not I should continue a legal career or pursue a career in the corporate sector. However, after one meeting with Jane she helped me create a game plan to pursue my goals in transitioning to a new career, revise my resume and cover letter, as well as assist me in interview preparation.
Within three months after our initial meeting, I accepted a new position with a large telecommunications company where the work environment is a perfect fit and I have been able to finally obtain a level of job satisfaction that I never thought was possible. I truly believe that Jane’s coaching helped me to define my career goals and teach me life long skills that I can apply in my future job searches.
Her services are great for a new graduate looking to enter into the work force, someone looking to transition into a new career path, or someone who’s interested in climbing the corporate ladder at their current employer! Her packages are comprehensive and her rates are competitive and definitely a smart investment in yourself.Karima I., 32
These results are actually pretty typical.
