Get Grounded During a Stressful Time
"My meeting with Crystal was pivotal in finding my next job after a layoff. She gave me loads of useful resources that led to more interviews. She explained networking via LinkedIn in a way that helped me easily integrate it into my job search. She also helped ground me in the stressful time after losing a job. I couldn't recommend her services enough. Thank you, Crystal, for believing in me."

Build Confidence for Resumes and Interviews
"I am so glad that I got the chance to know Crystal. Before I started to write my resume, I was so worried and afraid. After talking to Crystal, she helped me figure out what I want to do in a new country and how to explore a new field. It helped me feel more confident to create my resume. Then I received feedback that was so useful, I got interviews with a bank and a pharmacy in Vancouver! I highly suggest working with Crystal to get the full support for what you need."

Understand How to Job Search in Canada
"Crystal is the kindest and most patient consultant I know. She is also very good at leveraging online tools to help me, like using video meetings and synced files to share examples. And after I revised my resume, she immediately assisted me by explaining the shortcomings and what could be improved. In addition to helping me fix my resume, she also gave me a detailed introduction to the working environment in Canada, the habits of various industries, and some interviewing techniques and attitudes. This helped me to be more confident in my job search and to know where to start my preparation. If you are also looking for a job and want to enter the Canadian employment environment, I recommend that you talk to Crystal first; it will definitely help."
