“I usually have a hard time asking for help, mistakenly thinking I should be able to figure out most things on my own. A good friend recommended Dr. Colleen when I found myself very unhappy and unmotivated in a new job. Dr. Colleen's professional expertise helped me get in touch with what really motivated me. Her encouragement and support boosted my confidence and determination, and helped me pursue what truly mattered to me. As a result I got a new job that's a much better fit, in an industry I've been trying to get into for years. Working with Dr. Colleen literally changed my life, I have a renewed energy and a greater sense of optimism. Thank you so much Dr. Colleen, your help and guidance made a difference in my life!”
~ Sue M.
"I contacted Colleen for help with several issues. I was unhappy in life, not knowing my purpose, low self-esteem, and depressed. Colleen has helped me in so many ways. I can truly say working with Colleen is one the best decisions I have ever made for myself. She is caring, outgoing, supportive and understanding. She has taught me great coping skills to help me get through difficult times. She has helped me find my purpose and all the positive aspects I have to offer. I have made so many positive changes in my life since I've started coaching with Colleen. There aren’t enough words to say thank you for all you have done for me!! I highly recommend Colleen as an EXCELLENT Life Coach!!!"
~ Tracy T.
"Personal or Professional. Each one affects the other and sometimes it's hard to decipher where the problem is, but Colleen gets to the crux of the problem and heart of the matter. She not only listens but hears and finds the solution. I have spoken to many resume writers and coaches who offer quick opinions or solutions based on their own experience or some strict criteria to follow. No thinking outside the box or consideration of a real person with a subjective experience. Colleen is a unique combination. She hears what you may not be saying and offers solutions that produce results and a level of support that is genuine. She makes it professionally personal."
~ Deb. C
"After a lengthy career in healthcare, I went to Colleen for help with a career shift. She helped me to zero in on exactly what that next career move would be. She has been an amazing resource with starting my own business. I can’t thank her enough for helping me turn my passion into a business. Her ability to help put my vision into words and reality has been a blessing! Thank you Colleen!"
~ Tonya P.
"I was feeling stuck in my life. I was allowing past disappointments to shake my confidence and I had adopted a pessimistic outlook. Dr. Georges helped me get out of my rut and back on track. My confidence has improved and I am no longer allowing the negative experiences of the past shape my present or future. Her coaching has helped me to develop more self-compassion and a greater appreciation for the many gifts in my life. I feel like a dark cloud has been lifted and has been replaced by a ray of sunshine. Dr. Georges is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, understanding, inspiring, and very supportive. I am truly grateful for her help and would highly recommend her services."
~ Kelly S.
"I had, originally, contacted Dr. Colleen Georges to get a professional to update my resume. I wanted a reputable person to show my strengths on paper because I was in such an emotional state that I could not do it for myself. When Colleen contacted me, I felt an immediate connection. She listened to my needs and took in my “story” with an open mind and an open heart. She spent time hearing my concerns and she was extremely empathetic to my situation (to put it bluntly, I was miserable in the job I had but did not know how to get out of it). Over the course of those next few weeks, Colleen helped to not only highlight my attributes on paper, but she also helped to lift me out of my emotional funk and get me on the right track with my life. She showed me that I am more than I think I am… that I can accomplish whatever I decide to (and actually do it well) because of who I am. She helped me to remember my strengths and that, even though I felt stuck at that moment, it was very temporary. She opened my eyes to possibilities that I did not think myself worthy of. In less than six months, I began my dream job - doing exactly what I have always wanted to do! I now live a life of financial stability, time, freedom and best of all, I know that I have the skills to do what I want instead of settling for what is right in front of me. Colleen helped me to see that I am so much more than I allowed myself to be. I am eternally grateful."
~ Jamie R.
“When I made the call to Colleen and told her about my fear and anxiety, she related immediately and we discussed how she could help me. We talked weekly and then bi-weekly for a couple of months talking about my anxieties and how to cope with everyday problems. It was such a relief to talk with her and to express myself and my doubts and concerns. She is a wonderful listener and very caring and empathetic. Her advice and anecdotes were and still are very helpful to me today. We had a lot of serious talks and also laughed a lot too. She would provide me “homework” which was sometimes a challenge but all good towards helping me to create a better outlook and have more confidence. I found the sessions with her to be very productive and of great help. If you are not happy and struggling with life you will be glad you called her and worked with her as she will certainly bring positivity into your life and how to better cope with life’s ups and downs. She will truly listen and help. She is a professional and a very good soul too.”
~ Frank E.
"A lot has happened and without your guidance to get me back on track I know the results might have been different. Of all that has happened, losing my mother this year was the worst, but it could have been so much more if I hadn’t been in such a good place in my life thanks to you. I am eternally grateful for your guidance and reminders of what a strong person I am… Since working with you and finding my balance, my relationships have also improved ten-fold. I have this amazing relationship with my daughter now, the kind I had only dreamed about. Some days it’s hard to believe. My relationship with my husband has also improved greatly. We get along so much better since I stopped feeding into pessimism… Work and school have been amazing as well… Life has been very good to me since working with you. I am here today in this wonderful place in my life because I had the sense to reach out and ask for your help. Best thing I ever did! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!"
~ Becky W.
"I accepted a fantastic position with a great company on the west coast. Thank you once again for your help and especially your positive attitude in helping me through the unnerving experience of after thirty years being without a job."
~ Evan M.
“I am so excited right now... I trusted her and she delivered! Now I am turning down interviews and I start my new job next week."
~ Georgette B.
"Hello Colleen! I wanted to write to you to let you know that I received multiple interviews with top companies and today I was offered my "dream position at my dream company"! I will “officially” be accepting a Management position with a major Fortune 500 company this week! My husband and I both want to thank you for what you have done. I believe in your work 200% and will recommend you to everyone I know. You are someone who is extremely knowledgeable and talented in what you do and you put it all out there for the benefit of others. I learned a lot from the communications and support you provided to me. You were certainly a great wealth of knowledge for me and like I said, I have no doubt you had a large part to play in the outcome! Again, thank you so much! You had a HUGE part in helping me reach one of my biggest career goals which has been in the making for many, many years! Tonight is definitely going to be a night of celebration for myself and my family! "
~ Mari B.
“I received over 20 interviews! Colleen coached me until I was prepared for the big day. In our session, she provided me with tips on preparing for those difficult interview questions, we developed ways for me to show my enthusiasm for the job, and I learned the proper etiquette for an interview meal. Her coaching paid off. I received an offer from my top-choice firm. Colleen has helped me identify my strengths and weakness, and together we created career goals that were driven by my passions. This helped me identify the right field for me and I am looking forward to my summer associate position.”
~ Tina J.
"Colleen was a joy to work with! She helped me to focus my accomplishments and provided clear direction on how to take my resume and cover letter to the next level. I am happy to say that I have just accepted a job offer and have no doubt that Colleen's advice and career expertise were key components in allowing my resume to make it to the top of the pile.”
~ Greg B.
“Colleen was highly recommended by a work colleague and I am absolutely 100% satisfied with the quality of her work. Colleen took the time to speak with me to fully understand my career track, previous professional experiences and ideal position expectations. She also has one of the nicest, upbeat and positive personalities of anyone I've worked with. I recommend her without reservation.”
~ Dr. Nnenna K.

~ Scott M.
“It is always a pleasure to work with Dr. Colleen Georges. Not only is she a lovely and personable person, but she also is a professional with a wealth of knowledge to share! She engages our audiences with her seminars on resumes, interviews, and job searching, so much so, that patrons at our library always look forward to her return. Dr. Georges makes sure every patron leaves satisfied and confident that they can tackle the job market and all of its difficulties. We plan on having her back multiple times throughout the year. The Sayreville Public Library wants to do everything it can to help its community struggling with unemployment, and Dr. Georges plays a major role it helping the library accomplish this goal. Her services are absolutely integral to the library.”
~ Alaina D.
"It was GREAT talking with you last night. You are truly amazing. I keep thinking about so many things that you said and how you guided me through my rambling's about things at work. I can't begin to tell you how much I got out of the hour!!"
~ Lora K.
“Amazing. No other word can describe Dr. Georges better. Not only was she a wiz with my resume, but she has been a great resource to the starting of my business. Her advice and encouragement is invaluable. I highly recommend her to anyone needing start-up business advice or help re-vamping a resume.”
~ Terri H.
“I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Colleen Georges as a resume and career coach. She saved me from having a 7 page unfocused resume...the bane of a hiring manager's existence. After one conversation, she managed to both help me envision the next steps in my career and craft a resume to help me get there; I even received compliments on my resume! Creating a resume for someone who straddles the technical and the functional side is challenging but she exceeded my expectations”
~ Addis C.
"As a professional transitioning from the business arena to a new field, I was a little overwhelmed. Dr. Georges was able to guide me through the whole process. Her coaching on interview techniques and general guidance were instrumental to me finding a position in my new career. She kept in touch every step of the way to see how the interview process was going and offer advice. I would highly recommend her services."
~ Tamara L.
“Colleen is the best resume and career coach that I have met. Her approachability, friendliness and ability to read her clients needs, wants and goals is absolutely brilliant and is exactly what is needed when you are looking to re-market yourself in any job climate.”
~ Courtney T.
"Dreaming about a career change, when one is unhappy with his or her profession, can be invigorating. Actually taking initiative and making a career change can be terrifying. 3 years ago, I decided that I was going to leave my decade long tenured high school teaching career to embark on a new journey. Where this journey would begin and end was a complete puzzle to me, as I believed that my secondary English education degree limited my options. At the beginning of trying to piece my new career path and industry options together, I came across Colleen’s Tedx Talk and website. I felt an instant connection to her story, and her personal and honest journey, and reached out for guidance. Prior to my work with Colleen, I was incredibly anxious and had many sleepless nights as I worried about my prospects outside of the only industry that I had any experience in. Even after our first session, I felt comforted that Colleen not only understood my journey and future goals, but truly listened to me and genuinely cared about my happiness in my future career. In fact, Colleen identified characteristics in me that I didn’t even recognize in myself. This gave me the confidence to not only pursue a new profession that was out of my comfort zone, but to also start my own business that showcases all of the talents that Colleen helped me to mine. The personalized, empathetic, and professional approach, that Colleen employs, is a rare gem in a society where we all could use a bit more individualized service with authentic communication. I am truly grateful for Colleen’s wisdom and kindness that she showed me. Now, I not only have a better quality of life in my new professional endeavors, but I am truly proud of my past experiences and my unique journey as well."
~ Emily L.
"I had the pleasure of working with Colleen in 2018 during a time when I was experiencing dissatisfaction with my career and felt unfulfilled. As a young woman, I never really knew "what I wanted to be when I grew up" so I fell into a career that was convenient, paid well and that I was pretty good at. Perhaps a failure on the part of myself together with my parents and guidance counselors on school, but my strengths and interests were never truly identified. On a whim, I googled career counselors and found Colleen. Upon inquiry, Colleen was prompt in replying and I genuinely felt a connection with her. We agreed to work together with respect to identifying a new career path for me and potential graduate school programs that would support my career goals. Colleen is very skilled and knowledgeable about various industries and provided me with sound advice and direction based upon various strengths and weaknesses and interest assessments that she administered. Through this exercise, Colleen truly helped me identify what I wanted out of my career and what was truly important to me rather than what I didn't want. She provided me with "homework" tasks following our video calls that kept me on track and focused on my goals. After I identified a path, Colleen helped me with my resume and with applying for positions within my chosen path. In so doing, Colleen asked me to put together a list of my career achievements for incorporation in my resume, which was a struggle for me. It is so hard to be our own cheerleader and think of our accomplishments as meaningful or worth mentioning. It was probably the best part of our engagement - she took what I considered minor achievements and transformed them into a killer resume. When I received the finished product, I truly said to myself, "I'd hire me!" Shortly thereafter, I started applying for jobs and guess what! I LANDED the exact position I wanted. Out of 172 applicants, I was selected. I cannot help but credit Colleen for my success. Colleen fully supported me through the interview process and we still keep in touch today. I couldn't have done this without Colleen's guidance, wisdom and support. She is truly a wonderful person in every way, and I truly feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her."
~ Jennifer R.
"Dr. Colleen Georges came into my life at a time when I needed her the most and throughout my time with her, she has been able to help me improve: mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally, professionally, personally and/or with my goals. She can provide amazing advice/insight due to her incredible knowledge and experience; personally, this helped me relax and trust the entire process of working with her towards my common goals. She also helped me quickly and easily identify my strengths and weaknesses (as a person) as well as outlining the plan to help me to play up to my strengths while working to eliminate my weaknesses all together. And when I have put her advice/suggestions to the “real-world-test” I have been pleasantly surprised with the results, no matter the situation."
~ Kitchel D.
"Dr. Colleen Georges is truly amazing! Because of her, I started back on a program to getting myself and my life back on track. It’s her energy, it’s her unforgettable vibration that reminds me there is good in the world. If you’re looking for “it” this is it! Thank you and forever grateful there are people in the world that support Dr. Colleen Georges. And thank you Dr. Colleen Georges for all the things you do and the inspiration you are."
~ Victor B.
“I first met Dr Colleen while searching for a resume writer but what I found was so much more that just a resume writer. I ended up hiring her as my career coach and we met over a dozen times over the course of a year. Not only did you provide me excellent information about crafting a resume and searching for a job she made me think about differently about my life and the people in it. I can honestly say that meeting Dr Colleen has transformed my life in ways I never expected so if you are ready for a change read her book and re-script your life.”

~ Eryn G.

~ Mike D.
"Well I can honestly say I shouldn’t have waited as long as I did to hire Colleen!! She gave me great pointers in how to boost my confidence in getting back to the job market as a passive job seeker. What’s even more impressive is that she continues to follow up with me to see how my search is doing and happy to lend additional suggestions!"
~ Veronica C.

“Colleen worked closely with me and has done a great job. I contacted Colleen through an internet search and she responded promptly. Several recruiters have pointed out that my resume design and content were very impressive and most important in getting me spotted. I very highly recommend Colleen and know she would do an excellent job for any future projects.”
~ Art M.
“In today’s market there is no question that competition is fierce, and it is therefore imperative to stand out from the crowd.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Georges’ services to anyone who wants to be considered a serious candidate in a tough job market."
~ Donna C.

~ William V.
“My position had been terminated in July 2010. A few months later, during the time I was in transition, I met Dr. Colleen Georges at a local library where she offered seminars on resume writing, cover letters, and interviewing tips. I found the resume writing and cover letter seminar very helpful. I had a resume together at the time I attended the seminar so I was able to compare my resume format with Dr. Colleen’s format. Dr. Colleen was kind enough to take my resume and substitute my format with her resume formatting which really gave it a professional look! The one great piece of advice I took away from the resume writing and cover letter seminar was to use the same heading on both documents so that your “brand” is consistent. I also took Dr. Colleen’s suggestion and used on all the thank you letters I sent! The second seminar given by Dr. Colleen that I attended was on interviewing tips. At the time I attended, I hadn’t had any interviews so this seminar was perfect timing. Dr. Colleen covered several items such as how to prepare for the interview, common interview questions and how to respond to each question, illegal interview questions, and questions to ask during an interview. Following the seminar, Dr. Colleen distributed all the material covered so we would have it for reference. This material was invaluable as it became part of my preparation to review it before every phone screen and in person interview. The topics and the reference material Dr. Colleen provided were terrific, as I mentioned. Attending these seminars and having the reference material was a big boost to my confidence because it confirmed I was on the right path. I had several phone screens and face-to-face interviews in October and November 2010 and was fortunate to land a position in December 2010 after being in transition for four and one-half months. I certainly owe Dr. Colleen a note of thanks for the information she provided."
~ Gary Z.
“I had sent my personally prepared resume to a number of recruiters all of whom provided feedback on the many flaws in my presentation. Realizing I needed an expert, I engaged Dr. Georges to revamp my resume. I was immensely pleased with the final draft by Dr. Georges and the revised feedback from recruiters on the new resume was very complimentary. I was so happy with the results I asked Dr. Georges to redo the resume of my daughter who graduated college two years ago. The response she received from recruiters when comparing her personally written resume and the one prepared by Dr. Georges was the same as mine. We are both very pleased with the work of Dr. Georges and would highly recommend her services!!”
