What do we cover in my consultation?
This depends on your needs. We'll create the agenda together based upon what you've identified as being important on the Free Consultation Form
. A typical session might involve working on a resume and cover letter, going over job search strategies and talking through interview skills.
What if I want to set up additional sessions?
Let Angela know that you would like to schedule more sessions. You can do this by calling 785-532-3392 or 800-600-2586 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

What topics could be covered in additional consultations?
Additional consultations might be used, for example, by someone who wishes to change careers, is considering going back to school, is considering some other big change or would just like more assistance in their job search. Like the free consultation, the agenda can be set by your communicated priorities.
