I found Holly when I hit a triple-whammy of challenges in my job search. I had just moved to a new city, everyone was in Covid lockdown, and I was transitioning from freelancing to full time work. Holly started by sitting down with me for an incisive analysis of my skills, background experiences, and envisionings (my word) of goals to pursue. She then generously shared her Rolodex, lit a fire under my networking burner, and coached me to keep at it through months of applying to jobs, getting a few rejections, and continually sharing new ideas.
All the steps of the process were easier — nay, doable — because Holly was in my corner. When I sank or grew discouraged, she commiserated, offered insights, helped me laugh, and encouraged me to soldier on. When I got an offer for a role that excited me, she cheered and assisted me through the negotiation process. She has a wealth of knowledge, a real can do, fluff-less attitude, stamina, humor, and sanity. Her tips for interviews, especially positioning myself and my skills in relation to a prospective role, made an important difference.
