Testimonials

....I recently had the good fortune of working with a Consultant in the Career Transitioning process.  I wanted to share my experience with you as it was very positive and valuable to me, thanks to her.

My Consultant provided me with fantastic guidance and coaching right from the start.  She took the time to get to know me and my interests, experience, skills, etc and then provided guidance tailored specifically to me.  She asked great thought provoking questions and provided timely, specific feedback.  She is easy to talk to and helped build my career search confidence and abilities. I felt she went above her mandated responsibilities by sending the occassional check in email and providing additional avenues of support.  She was flexible throughout our time together and I felt she truly wanted me to succeed; she demonstrated this by adjusting the conversation and exercises to what was important to my career search.

It is obvious that my Consultant is extremely knowledgeable and a gifted career management consultant. I am sure that because of her and the services of People First / KWA I will land a satisfying career.  Thank you both for operating such a valuable service and for employing amazing people like her.

....Thank you for your engaging mind, your finely tuned ear and for your astute verbalizations. You listen and watch, you ask the right questions then synthesize and are then able to, with uncanny accuracy, articulate exactly what is happening or is being felt. That is truly the essence of caring and assisting, to verbalize what one's subconscious is trying to get through to the conscious. You facilitate that inner process. That's your process and that one process did so much more for me than land on some truths.

I would take more space than is email etiquette appropriate to share all that you have done for me, during our meetings. You have my eternal appreciation, and have added another major point on my gratitude lifeline of people who have made an indelible impression on my life.

....Your positive team environment and atmosphere, your confidence in me, your robust programs and resources and your professional, competent and resourceful consultants prepared, positioned and supported me to find the right fit with a new company. I will, and have, sung your praises to others and will continue to recommend your services and staff with pleasure.

….I did want to thank you for the support and encouragement you have provided to me over the course of the past months. It has been quite a journey and while I appreciate all that I have learned, it was difficult along the way. However, despite the trauma of being terminated, I am grateful that I was able to receive services from People First and specifically you. Your positive attitude, insight, professionalism and bright smile never failed to inspire me on even the darkest of days. You helped me to learn a lot about myself and take control of where I was, and I very much appreciated the opportunity to not only work with you, but also get to know you a little.

....Thank you again for your incredible assistance during this transition. People First, and it's clients, are very lucky to have you. Everyone I encountered at your office was professional, knowledgeable, and above all, KIND. You, in particular, personify all of those qualities and more. I could have retreated, and certainly the thought crossed my mind during the month or two following my last employment experience, but your support - career-wise and emotionally - kept me coming back. And I am glad that I did.
