I hired Kristin at Career Story as my career coach. Her rates are reasonable, and I took two assessments: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory. She met with me in person at her office for two hours (which was professional, clean, etc) and provided me with good insight into my personality traits, the results of the assessments, and feedback on how to make my next career move... She is very responsive, quick, and informative. And plus she has an HR background which provides clients with a lot of value. She is pleasant, receptive, and empathetic towards her clients. She followed up our session with soft copies of the assessments, and tips on informational interviewing and other valuable tools to search for jobs. I recommend her services to anyone looking to make a career change! She's in your corner and will provide you with the support you need.
I was trying to find a job and handed out resume after resume. I felt so defeated as I knew I was a great candidate for the jobs I was applying for but I just didn't hear back from anyone. A woman I know who specializes in career development recommended Kristin. At first I was a bit hesitant to give it a try as I was pretty financially tight from not having a job, but I decided to think of it as an investment that hopefully paid off... and it did! Kristin is LOVELY to work with and so helpful. She helped translate for me why I would be a great candidate for the jobs I was applying for onto paper. I have since been called by EVERY SINGLE JOB I APPLIED FOR with my new resume, which is practically unheard. To say I have been thrilled with the beautiful resume Kristin built for me is a huge understatement. She did an INCREDIBLE JOB. She has also helped me exponentially with applications and job interview prep which I've been so grateful for. I recommended her to my sister who had the same experience and got the first job she applied for. Finding a job can be so discouraging and daunting, but Kristen makes it approachable and makes you feel confident in the fact that you are hireable and you have something to offer. It makes a huge difference handing in an amazing resume you know you can be confident in. I cannot recommend her enough. If you need help getting a job, I know it might cost you initially but it is TOTALLY a worthwhile investment and pays off very tangibly. Thanks Kristin for the amazing work you do, it was a pleasure to work with you!!!!
Kristin is an exemplary professional. She was recommended to me by a friend and I called her with a tough case- to create an excellent resume that makes sense of my entrepreneurial work history, help me write an awesome cover letter and have it done in 4 days! She met the challenge and delivered excellent work. She conducted a great "interview" to get a sense of my personality and then injected it into my cover letter. I applied for the job with a killer resume and confidence. - Meredith
"A few years back I was looking to change careers and I needed help formatting and updating my resume to target that specific job market. Kristin helped format my resume and gave me great pointers about the job market. She gave my resume a facelift by formatting it in such a great way that it highlighted my skills and abilities in a way I had never thought of including in my resume before. I loved how Kristin took the time to meet up with me in person to discuss and really get a feeling for what I was looking for in my new career. she listened to where I was coming from, why I wanted to shift careers and worked with me to help me come up with a great resume which I still use to this day as a precedent. Kristin is very helpful, professional and very skilled in her area of work and I would highly recommend her services to anyone." - Hina, Vancouver, BC
"Kristin worked with me to update my resume for welding. She helped to format and layout my resume. She determined what changes to make such as what information to keep in and what information to leave out. Due to my young age and lack of experience, I needed someone to guide me on how to present my skills in a way so that an employer would consider me. Kristin gave me good advice on how to network and soon after we completed the resume, I was able to land a job." - Ryan F. from Chilliwack, BC
"Kristin was able to take a resume that I wasn't confident about sending to potential employers and turn it into something that I am proud to share. She asked questions that pulled out a much better description of me, my past work and my abilities. In our conversations, I realized that I wasn't giving potential employers the full picture. Kristin helped me to describe skills and experiences I had taken for granted in a way that increases my value to employers. The huge changes she made to my resume, both in format and content, are a really exciting change that have opened up career possibilities I hadn't considered." - Laurie from Vancouver, BC
"When I think back on the tough and discouraging job seeking process, I am so thankful that Kristin was there to coach me. She helped me rethink and rewrite my cover letters and resumes so that each one was relevant and specific to the job I applied for. I learned so much during this process in terms of what employers were looking for, and what information was important to include. I soon received call-backs for interviews, and, with Kristin’s additional interviewing advice, I landed a great job. Kristin was positive and encouraging, and I would highly recommend her services." - Katie S. from Vancouver, BC
