Dr. Lindsay has proven to be a tremendous asset when it comes to helping to prepare for the professional world. After finishing college, I decided to pursue graduate school. Lindsay helped me to edit my personal statement to make sure that I stood apart from other applicants. Fast forward two years, I’m now applying for jobs and Lindsay, again, has been a huge help. Cover letters are never easy to write, but Lindsay provided constructive feedback and advice that has helped me to present myself in a clear, concise, and positive manner. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lindsay to anyone needing help with professional documents.
I highly recommend Dr. Lindsay. She is truly an excellent thought partner in career development. Both a strategic thinking and skillful tactician, she is deeply insightful, creative, and provides honest feedback and tangible advice.
Dr. Lindsay helped me make some impactful changes to my resume and cover letters. I recently graduated from business school, which is essentially one long job interview. We learn all about interviewing, networking, cover letters, and resumes. My point is that I know how to write good cover letters and resumes - I've even helped other people with theirs - but I'll always ask Lindsay for advice before sending out anymore resumes or cover letters because she's that good. I recommend her to anyone looking for a new job.
Dr. Lindsay helped me out during a pivotal career moment. In my first year as a lawyer, I hated my job and knew I had to start looking for my dream job soon. I kept saying to myself that it wasn't the "right" time just yet, but partially that was because I preferred keeping the door open to any potentially wonderful but not yet pursued job opportunities, rather than actually pursue those opportunities and fail. Not being one to be completely inactive, however, I decided to begin the process by readying my resume and cover letters, and for that I contacted Dr. Lindsay for help. I thought that my biggest problem with my resume was going to be fitting everything I wanted to include on one page. But with Dr. Lindsay's advice, I learned that that was only the beginning of my areas for improvement. Dr. Lindsay was able to help me improve my resume in terms of form, content, aesthetics, and organization. Somehow, it all fit comfortably into one page while actually being more compelling than before. Honestly, I was incredibly surprised by my new resume and so happy with the finished product. That new resume gave me the confidence to put myself out there and start applying for actual jobs, and a few months later I was starting my dream job. Now that I have settled into that new job, I feel like I'm finally where I want to be for a long time to come. And Dr. Lindsay's expertise played an indispensable role.
