"Janelle is a terrific interview coach. I don't think it is purely a coincidence that the first interview after her training led to an offer.I came out of my coaching session with stronger interview skills. Janelle tailored the coaching session to my needs, and we went over interview questions that I had trouble with in the past.”   – D J., Brighton, MA

— Mary Jo & Matt Ricketson

“I worked for over ten years in the field of higher education, and like many other Americans in this recession, lost my job last year before Christmas. I was looking for a while and had only a few interviews with no results.

I came to Janelle all stressed-out and wanted to improve my interviewing and job-hunting skills. She pointed out that in addition to interviewing skills, assertiveness, listening, voice and diction skills are a must. We practiced in all the above mentioned areas. Janelle gave me invaluable advice and taught me how to effectively greet the interviewer, ""make small talk" and be a good listener through practice and exercises. This experience helped me to polish my skills from every angle, and in this very tough market I actually just got the job following Janelle's advice.

She is a great coach, caring and compassionate person and I recommend her sessions to anyone who wants to be a successful professional, leader and entrepreneur.”

– Irene, Boston

"I am so thankful to Janelle for her wonderful help at mastering my interview skills. I am a foreign medical graduate and I have been, successfully, applying to one of the most competitive residencies in the USA – ophthalmology. The match rate is so low for FMG that I did not believe that I might ever succeed. Having great usmle scores and great credentials is only half way to success. The interview is key! With only a few meetings in great friendly atmosphere with Janelle, I have improved my interview skills tremendously. I went to the interviews with great confidence and very well prepared. She asked me many questions that I was asked by the interviewers. I matched at a very good program and all my interviews went fantastic. I greatly recommend Janelle as a wonderful coach for preparation for interviews in the medical field and residency in medicine."

- Successfully matched and thankful candidate, 2014

I am a foreign medical graduate and applied for internal medicine residency in the US. I was very stressed before my interviews since I knew little about how to interview and how to use proper English. Then a very satisfied previous customer recommended Janelle to me. I am so grateful he did. Janelle was simply wonderful. She not only helped me to present myself in the best possible light but also gave me insight into how to answer potentially difficult questions. By taking some of her sessions, I felt confident to do well on my interviews. Needless to say, I got into my first choice residency program. Thank you Janelle! You are both a great teacher and a truly wonderful person. I couldn’t have done it without your support.
