“Inspirational! Helped me to realize my true value and gave me skills to utilize in creative application of my skills in job searching.”
“I am a Job Placement Counselor who attended the workshop to improve job search advice to clients, so I have used the information provided to support the workshops and techniques I already taught. I wish a lot more job searchers had attended; I think Jamie’s approach is empowering.”

“This program is excellent and people really enjoyed the information she had to offer. I am hoping to attend another when she comes to my area again.”

“That workshop was not just about finding a job for me; it was a truly eyeopening experience”.

“I love this program it is great. It has helped me to expand my outlook on possible jobs. I am a firm believer in loving what you do as far as career. This should be adopted by our high schools it would really help out our college bound teens.”
