"My wife has been in higher education for many years and wanted to make a career change. She found Shenita and immediately made a connection! We hired her for coaching, mentoring, job search strategies, and resume redesign.
I was so impressed with the work she did that I asked her if she would look at my resume even though I thought I was happy with it already.
Shenita blew me away with her suggestions, edits, and reformatting. I'm so grateful for the work she did and am excited about the opportunities that will come as a result of her efforts.
