Essay Preparation and Editing

“When my son was preparing his application to the business program at his current university, Shari worked with him to make his essays really stand out. She helped him fine tune his ideas and articulate them clearly to really highlight his accomplishments and allow his personality to shine through.  My son had a very short time-frame in which to submit his application and Shari’s turnaround time was incredibly fast – allowing for multiple iterations of the essay until it was just right.  She did all the work by phone and on google docs which made it so easy for my son to see her editing and comments in real-time and respond quickly. Shari was friendly, flexible and had a great can-do attitude. My son was accepted into the business program and we are so thankful for her help. I would not hesitate to recommend Shari and Success Prep Partners!”

Job Search Strategies and Interview Preparation

“Shari was an exceptional resource in my job hunt and application process in two important ways: 1) She helped me identify what kind of job I actually wanted. I had a lackadaisical job hunt strategy that became more intentional (toward technology sales) after a chat with her; and 2) She was expert at helping me execute well on interviews and deliverables for my job applications. With clear insight into the mind of hiring managers, she parsed through my wonky resume to find the compelling story, polished my responses to likely interview questions, and proofread deliverables as part of my interview process. Due largely to her help, I landed a dream job in San Francisco at the end of October in my fall semester of senior year. Without her I would have been fruitlessly scurrying for jobs through graduation and beyond. Thank you Shari!"
