“Catherine was awesome! She really understood my situation and I feel 100% more confident in what I am doing and in my ability to obtain an articling position. I learned key aspects of what employers are looking for in the legal world, how to effectively market myself and network, key resume and cover letter creation aspects and what to expect in an interview for an articling position. I cannot begin to explain how much this coaching service helped me in my efforts to find a career path, goals and how to work towards it!” – GB, recent law graduate
“Catherine is patient, kind and empathetic, with an ability to connect with an individual and get a sense of what approach works for that person. In the short amount of time I spent with her, I felt that she really heard me and my frustrations, and was able to provide realistic, proactive advice moving forward in my job hunt to produce results. Being held accountable helped me to get back on track [with my job search]. I could not be more grateful to Catherine and will certainly recommend her wholeheartedly to others.” – LM, internationally trained lawyer
