I found Jen through LinkedIn, which speaks to how connected she is! I reached out, because I felt like her experience, career coaching approach and testimonials she’s received suggested she would be a good contact to know. I wasn’t disappointed. […] I decided to proceed with her as my coach, and during our sessions, I took the opportunity to explain my goals and expectations to her. She kept those in mind and made useful, tangible recommendations on steps to take to get there.

Jen is a true career savant. She is highly skilled in her field, able to jump into the deep end of an individual’s professional spectrum and build out a usable, visually stunning platform for job searching. I have been looking for a new role for months with very little traction. I was at my wit’s end, when I learned that Jen was a skilled resume writer. She was able to take my broken resume and build it into a work of art in a matter of hours. I have been getting 10-20 inquiries from employers a week since I started using my new resume. I highly recommend utilizing Jen’s resume writing acumen if you are having trouble getting noticed. You won’t be disappointed!

M.R. – Data Analytics & Social Policy

I’ve been working with Jen for the last 12 weeks. She helped me re-write, adjust and improve the quality of my resume, cover letter and Linkedin profile, by guiding me in the process of understanding how the job market in Canada works, what the hiring managers look for and how I can rebrand myself by adjusting my past experience to Canadian standards. After 6 weeks of applying to positions related to my field of expertise, I got a handful of initial interviews and two job offers. She has been an amazing help in my process as a newcomer in Canada and a great advisor. I recommend Jen to anyone who needs to find a job that matches his/her skills and interests.

D.C. – Executive Assistant

I picked Jen on the merits of her past reviews. I wholeheartedly state that she lived up to those reviews. Jen provided support in setting milestones, monitoring my progress, providing feedback and modifying my approach. The process of finding a career is disheartening, I was a bit unsure of which path to take yet I was ready to move to the next level, and getting an outside perspective from a professional was extremely helpful as she was able to boost my spirits during this trying time and kept me motivated. I will say I nitpicked a lot. Jen was extraordinarily patient and was happy to work through as many drafts as I felt I needed. I am happy to recommend her to everyone and would be ecstatic to work with her again.

I reached out, because I felt like her experience, career coaching approach and testimonials she’s received suggested she would be a good contact to know. I wasn’t disappointed. She was thorough, gave me a rundown of what I would expect when working with her, and checked in regularly. I decided to proceed with her as my coach, and during our sessions, I took the opportunity to explain my goals and expectations to her. She kept those in mind and made useful, tangible recommendations on steps to take to get there. I must admit I was a little skeptical, but I had nothing to lose, and I felt like I improved myself by following her suggestions. She has a friendly demeanour, is transparent and I especially appreciated the specificity of her guidance. I am pretty sure before we finished our coaching, I landed my dream job. Thanks, Jen!

I heard about Jen through my network and that she has a knack for filling difficult roles quickly and her rates are more cost effective than typical firms. So, I thought, why not there was no risk as We only paid if the role was filled. Jen exceeded our expectations and we continue to use her for any niche roles.

R.F. – Senior Financial Analyst

When I graduated fresh from my graduate school program, I needed direction. However, with numerous challenges in my life, I felt that seeking direction from one person to learn what to do next with my life was too utopian and just wishful thinking. Half a year later, embarking on my best job ever and journeying down a fruitful adventurous career path, I am happy to say that I was wrong in thinking that one person couldn’t set my life straight. Jen is extremely organized in her understanding of the human as a resource to an organization,  knows what organizations need from successful job candidates and understands what goes on in the mind and heart of the active job seeker. More than just confidence, Jen gave me clarity. Jen Narayan’s service has been the greatest professional investment I have ever made.
