After the discussion Stephen provided me with suggestions how to better prepare for job interview, how to expand my LinkedIn and professional network and revised my resume and cover letter. He was attentive, provided valuable information and was compassionate and motivating. The revised documents were a major improvement and I have found a new position very quickly.
