Discovered and Landed a New Career

“My work with Pam was instrumental in finding a career that I can be happy in, but what she really provided was so much more than that. Pam was able to help me identify my personal strengths and needs. This not only showed me the work I was suited for, but the work that would challenge me in the way I wanted to be challenged. In addition to finding the direction I wanted to go in, she helped me with all the details- preparing a resume, practicing for interviews, and identifying industries and specific positions that fit my skills and desires. She was even able to help me with a very personal and unusual circumstance by researching and networking with other professionals on how to deal with my challenge that didn’t fit in your normal job search. Pam was an advisor, an advocate and a friend throughout the process and I wouldn’t be as happy in my career and current position if it wasn’t for her.”

David S., Business Analyst

Overcame Burnout

“Working with Pam has changed my life.  When I initially contacted Pam to learn more about her services, I was emotionally, physically, and mentally struggling with a challenging boss at work. I was also dealing with career burnout. The stress from this negative work environment had leaked into my personal life and was wreaking havoc on my health. Pam has been a savior in helping me to get back on track and turn my crisis around. In addition to lending an emotionally supportive ear, she provided me with both the professional and personal life strategies I needed to help me get through each day. She also helped me to better define my career interests, values, and goals so I can pursue a position that both speaks to my heart and pays the bills. Every session with Pam has been an enlightening one, with takeaways that can be immediately applied to my career and life.  I don’t know where I would be right now personally or professionally if it was not for Pam.”

Kristine, Project Manager

Transitioned Smoothly into Senior Role

“Pam does great work! As I transitioned into a more senior role within my organization it was challenging and I needed to recognize and adjust to new skill sets and communications needs. Pam was able to help me capitalize on some of my natural strengths. I had to grow professionally and she helped me recognize some really needed areas for professional improvement. I now feel much more capable communicating effectively with C-level and Executive Staff. I have also found it very helpful in communicating with and coaching my own growing team of direct reports. Finally, I am better able to manage and foster conflict resolution for the benefit of my customers thanks to the work we did together. I highly recommend working with Pam as a coach.”

Marc C., IT Manager

Aced the Interview

I am happy to report that I have received and accepted a job offer from the organization I interviewed with. I want to express my gratitude for the service and help that you provided me during our time working together. I particularly want to thank you for assisting me with preparing for the interview. Your preparatory questions allowed me to look for the underlying questions in the interview, and to work out the kinks in the delivery of my answers. I believe that the service that you provide is important to the community. I am more than happy to refer friends and colleagues to your firm.”

Paul P., Chief Financial Officer

Found and Landed New Job

“I was looking back at some texts and was reminded of how completely “there for me” you were this past year during my job search. Coaching me, listening to me, encouraging me and giving me wisdom- being in my corner at a time when I really needed it. Actually, over many times (months) when I was in a weird place and your guidance helped keep me tethered. Thanks for giving me that support. Not all paths are straight but thank you for helping mine become less winding.”

Matt J., Marketing Manager

Discovered Her New Career

“I went to see Pam for career guidance after high school and while I was trying to figure out my major in college. I took the Myers Briggs and did the Strong Inventory with Pam and it helped me discover what I was really interested in and the types of things I wanted to be doing with my career. With the help of Pam’s coaching and guidance I am now enrolled in an OT program and really excited about the direction I am heading in and my future career!”

Allie F., Student

Renewed Confidence

“The Careerfulness Group Coaching Workshop has been a valuable experience as I begin my search for a new and exciting career. Pam is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and highly supportive of people looking for their next job. The tools I have been given have helped renew my confidence in my job hunt. Thanks Pam and Careerfulness!”

Michelle J., Business Manager

Updated Resume and Job Search Skills

My experiences with Pam Farone have been excellent.  I met with her both individually and as part of a career group; both experiences were valuable.  Pam’s knowledge of careers and job-seeking is extensive.  She helped me bring my resume and job-seeking approach up to date. Pam helped restore some of my lagging self-confidence and motivation, with her energy, positive attitude and encouragement to value my past work experiences. She trained our group on many valuable techniques. She is friendly and easy to talk to. I recommend her highly!!”

Mary M., Librarian
Transformed Resume
“I am so glad I found Pam and very satisfied with my experience with her! I needed tons of help with my resume, given the fact that I have not updated it for 8 years. I have a lot of years of experience, but my resume was a mess. After meeting with her and talking through what I do, Pam was able to summarize my experience and put all together effectively. Her ability to transform my work experience, skill sets and passion into a single document is amazing! I now feel more confident than ever to present my resume to more hiring companies. 
I would highly recommend Pam! “
Amanda S., Sourcing Specialist

Approved for GMAT Exemption

“I hired Pam to update my resume so I could apply for an exemption for taking the GMAT as part of my MBA program application. I am happy to report the resume looks great and I got the exemption! Thank you, Pam!”

I.M. Kim, Chemical Engineer

Works Better with Her Team

“Pam is really wonderful about guiding you toward yourself and helping you identify what you really need. She coaches you through reassessing your current situation, so you can examine it in a new light. Essentially Pam enables you to get out of your own way, so you can move forward individually, or, within the framework of a team. Plus, she’s gracious and patient and allows the process to unfold in an organic way. I loved working with her.”

Amy A., St. Business Owner

Gained Career Confidence

“Working with Pam has been a fantastic journey. She is professional, inspirational, and encouraging. Pam helped me communicate with management and other staff, and supported me through asking and receiving a promotion and a raise! She has also been instrumental in dealing with challenging office situations. Pam has helped me define my true goals and we mapped out a course to achieve them.  I feel more confident and excited for my career growth, and working with Pam has accelerated my goals. I look forward to continue working with Pam to further my career. Thank you, Pam!”

Handled Resume Challenges

“Pam had great feedback on how to update my resume and LinkedIn profile (content and personal brand), particularly with the gap in my professional resume. ”

Megan R., Marketing Professional

Great Coaching Experience

“I usually expect coaches to have a tough-love approach but Pam’s was much more friendly and warm, and that made a world of difference for me.”

Ken, Creative Writer

More Resume Confidence

“The feedback Pam provided on my resume was amazing! I feel so much better about it and more confident in my ability to sell myself through my resume. ”

Kristin C., Marketing Executive

Happy with New LinkedIn and Resume

“Pamela has a rare talent to be able to really “pull” things out of me — very quickly and effectively. Her approach also seemed less conventional, but very impactful. I’m very happy with my new LinkedIn profile and resume — which hadn’t been updated for years. And the personal branding exercise what fun…and helpful!”

Heather F., V.P. Marketing

Discovered Unique Talents

“I scheduled two sessions with Pam, and she was very generous with her time. Before the first session, she took time to review my resume and provide written feedback to make the in-person time more productive. She was very helpful in getting me to talk about myself and articulate what makes me different and valuable. She helped me identify and articulate the kinds of working environments where I can thrive!”
