Quotes from our Customers

— Sally Shaughnessy


“Your template resume and cover letter were my core tools for job applications. I appreciate your helpful sources for finding openings and company research. Your professional assistance helped me get past years of inertia to accomplish a major professional and personal goal, with a dynamic company and excellent compensation.”

— Rick Rogers


“My whole experience with Turning the Corner has been a positive one. My first free consultation was with Ginger. She gave me so much valuable information in that consultation. Working with Mark as a career coach has been just what I needed to jump start my career transition. Mark was excellent at responding to all my questions and gave me good direction on how to pursue leads. Mark is approachable and easy to work with. I love that he took the time to respond to my concerns in a timely manner. Two thumbs up, Turning the Corner!”

— Glenda L.


“I’m so glad I found Turning the Corner because from the first email from you and phone consultation I knew I was in the right place. After revitalizing my resume I started getting phone interviews, then after 4 face-to-face interviews I was offered the perfect job for me and it only took ~ 2 months after meeting with your team. I know everyone’s job search is different but I can say without a doubt that your team made all the difference in the world and helped me turn the corner!”

— Timothy Faulkenberry


“The introduction to Emotional Intelligence and learning to break old habits and thinking has literally changed my life. The interview coaching was especially good. It was specific for each job description. Turning The Corner provided me with very high value that was specific to my needs and they were very easy to open up to.”

— Gary A. Grindley


“Ginger was very helpful and responsive. The end product was exactly what I was looking for. The exercise of documenting accomplishments and the interview brought out details I typically overlooked. Ginger was able to pick up on key points and turn those into a quality resume.

— Josh Weiser


“A broad array of services were offered and I had several ideas of what I thought I wanted done, but after a free phone consultation, I was able to narrow it down to one thing – interview practice. Turning the Corner assisted me with interviewing but also honing my resume and building confidence. I felt that they cared about my success and were very encouraging. I thought the technical help was excellent.”

— Mark


“Thank you Carrie and Rose at Turning the Corner! I feel grateful that you could help me embrace my TRUE LOVES in work and life…and reflect on what I really want to bring into the world and help me create a legacy that is meaningful and free of regrets.

The process allowed me to celebrate my gifts, and eventually it was clear that I needed to create my work myself. Since then I have pursued building a business that uses my strengths and serves the world in a way that brings me joy and serves a community I love.

I noticed that your assessments really offered a powerful new perspective of what is natural to me, and to find the good in everything. Before I felt like there were weaknesses in my skill set yet with your reflection, I could see how all my strengths and weaknesses CAN play together in a positive way.”

— Macy M.


A very comprehensive and helpful tool to really make you think. I like to think and the patience that they showed with my over analyzing and heading off topic was really kind. It is my hope that I will be able to give back what inspiration they’ve given me. Would highly recommend.”

— Curious Observer


Turning the Corner is very professional, responsive and extremely helpful. They really care about their clients and genuinely want to assist their clients in finding the right job, chapter or adventure in life. They all have heart, interest and are great listeners.”

— Jeanie


Turning the Corner helped me through a series of exercises: characteristics and skills evaluation, core career values assessment, long term goals and resume services. The services are very helpful, but the people make the difference and are most effective. Carrie Ahmad is exceptional. She is caring, supportive and incredibly knowledgeable about the job market, navigating and more. I recommend Turning the Corner for career counseling to anyone needing support in assessing their strengths and pointing them in the right direction toward a job they love!”

— L. O’Bryan


“I worked with Carrie to prep for my medical school interviews. She was very well prepared, reviewed all my school essays to help come up with interview questions, and provided valuable feedback after our mock interview. She was very positive and upbeat. I enjoyed working with Carrie and I plan to use her services again in the future. She even sent me an email on the day I was interviewing to wish me luck! I was very pleased with my interview prep experience with Turning the Corner and I would recommend their services to anyone!”

— Tate V.


“Carrie and Rose are outstanding and are truly excellent at what they do. They provide top quality service at short notice. I worked with Turning the Corner on resume writing services, interviewing and salary negotiation skills. I recommend Turning the Corner because I want everyone who is in this difficult hunt in difficult times to land the job they want.”

— Ryan Douglas


Turning the Corner helped me find the confidence necessary to take the steps towards finding the right fit for me both professionally and personally. I used two services, career counseling with Carrie and resume writing with Rose. The career counseling was very impactful, as I was not sure I was looking for the right roles. The personality assessment and in depth conversation with Carrie helped steer me towards remaining true to what I excel in, as well as identify what job specifics or company cultures will elevate my natural ability or preferences. Carrie continues to make me feel cared for and invested in both during and after our sessions were complete.

In addition, I worked with Rose to develop an in depth resume tuned towards the job specifics I am both seeking, as well as highlighting my previous accomplishments. I am now very confident in the master resume I send out to prospective employers, armed with the knowledge that it clearly identifies the talents I feel apply towards prospective roles. Making a career change and looking for new jobs is a rather intense process, but Carrie and Rose excel at making the transition seamless and rewarding. I highly recommend their services!”

— Melissa H.


Turning the Corner has been an incredibly helpful experience. Their professionalism is outstanding, but its their sincere drive to help us, the clients, that elevates this business to another level. The amount of time and dedication both Rose and Carrie put into re-working my resume, giving me candid, intelligent career advice and guiding me to a path of success was extraordinary. I have already seen real, tangible results and grown my network. Turning the Corner is an excellent place to jump start your career and I am lucky to have had them help me.”

— Matthew R.


“I recently was terminated—the first time in my 50 years of being in the workforce. This was a very traumatic experience for me, but my employer arranged for Turning the Corner to provide me with outplacement services, i.e., coaching, resume writing, and identifying positions through electronic posting boards. Turning the Corner provided great resources and the Director of HR and Career Services, personally kept me going. She helped me identify who I was and what kind of position I wanted by working through a value exercise. Long after her work was officially done, she became my sounding board and encouraged me not to give up. She never criticized me, argued with my rationale, or discouraged me from applying for any position—she just LISTENED. I have found a position that I love and enjoy going to work!”

— Judy Martin


“I had no idea of how much resume customization is needed when applying for jobs. Turning the Corner helped tailor my resume emphasizing my appropriate strengths, skills, and experience. They also generated a comprehensive list of great job opportunities helping me figure out the most successful job boards out there. Utilizing their interviewing tips and techniques, I was able to convey my skills and experience successfully and was offered a position. Thank you to Turning the Corner for helping me find a job quickly that was the right fit for me!”

— Greg Sessions


“I can’t thank you enough for your assistance with my job search. I’ve never had anyone help me with my resume or job search before, so I was a little bit apprehensive. Once I met with Kendra and Rose, I was immediately put at ease. They got to know who I was professionally and personally so they could fully represent my personality. They did a great job of helping me focus on what types of jobs I should be applying for, instead of anything that crossed my desk. Rose did an incredible job of re-writing and organizing my resume to fully capture my accomplishments and qualifications. Since I was looking at changing fields, I needed to capture qualities that could translate to a variety of jobs.

After my resume was polished, I started applying for jobs on my own. Finding a new job in a new field is hard; they would check in with me and kept my spirits up, which I greatly appreciated. After a few months of searching and applying on my own, I went back to Turning the Corner for help with my job search. Elizabeth came on board and really hit it hard for me. I was given over 60 jobs to apply for in a two month time span. These were positions that I was greatly qualified for and fit within the parameters that I had given her. What was great about working with Elizabeth was that I had to be an active participant, which kept me motivated and moving forward.

I am happy to say that I found a new job with my new resume and cover letter that Rose helped ‘polish up’ as well.

For anyone looking for a new job, Turning the Corner will give you personalized and professional service. They stick with you as long as you need them to, they go above and beyond with their services. They have a client for life in me.”

— Sonya Oster


“I had been on ‘the job hunt’ for too long. I submitted over 200 resumes – and I still could not land a face-to-face interview, even though I was qualified for the jobs. It’s a depressing and frustrating experience.

However, after spending some with Kendra, I made a few fundamental changes to my resume and by the next day I was being called into interviews. Matter-of-fact, I finally got a call from a corporation I’ve applied to literally 4 times. The new resume has made all the difference for me getting noticed by these key employers. The Turning the Corner team really knows what it takes.”

— John Taylor


“Kendra has been a great help to me in finding my job. I was returning to the work force after working from home for the last several years and did not have an idea about my skill level and marketability. I knew I needed to find a job, but needed a boost of confidence and a strategy. Enter Kendra with her positive outlook and a working strategy to find a job. She helped me improve my resume, helped me developed a networking strategy, and helped me with my interviewing skills. With her help and support, I found a job within four months. These are skills that will carry me throughout my life. I would recommend Kendra to anyone who needs extra help finding a job. She is the best!”

— Alicia Burrus, Business Analyst, Specialized Loan Servicing


“Kendra asked all the right questions to fully understand the needs of the position we were hiring for and she recommended a candidate who is a perfect fit for the position. We hired him immediately. Kendra completely ‘got’ our requirements for someone who would share our values and vision and who could contribute beyond the scope of the job description. Her own personal experience in the corporate world gave her insights that our other recruiting channels lacked.”

— Candie Hurley, VP Strategic Customer Engagement at TriZetto Group


“I am writing to express my gratitude for your services. Before working with you, I felt overwhelmed by how much the job market had changed in the past few years while I was working part time and raising my kids. Specifically, I did not understand what employers were looking for in resumes. Now I have a solid resume that is accessible, streamlined and I am able to quickly customize it to suit different job openings. I have learned about the importance of networking and appreciate your help in developing a plan to reach out to my connections, many of whom I wouldn’t have even identified without your direction! Finally, your focused advice and expertise has helped me to recognize and vocalize my strengths. I have enjoyed working with you and would recommend your skills to anyone on the job search path.”

— Jessica Hernandez, Planning and GIS Consultant, Prana Consulting


“I worked as a successful newspaper reporter for seven years. During the last two years, when it became clear it was time to transition careers, I began trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I sent out resumes in communications, but with little response. I loved being a reporter, and so it was difficult to figure out how to get excited about a new direction. I was so fortunate to meet Kendra Prospero at Turning the Corner, LLC. Our work together helped clarify for me that my true passion lies in writing books. Since that session, I have finished my first novel! Although I’m still discovering how to best contribute and earn by tapping into my passions and talents, I can trace a sense of renewed vigor, purpose and clear direction to my work with Kendra. Before that, I felt truly at sea. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for their next chapter!”

— Sara Wright, Writer & Journalist, www.thewrightword.net


“I have not been in the job search market for a long time having been employed for more than 20 years. Carrie took me through skills testing and values and legacy exercises which helped me decide what I was best suited, what I should do with these skills, and what kind of a company I want to work for. Rose then wrapped everything into a great resume and Linked In profile. Carrie and Rose really helped me pull everything together for a more focused job search. Their help was invaluable.”

“Kendra and her team at Turning the Corner, LLC helped me develop an effective job search strategy, provided helpful knowledge of the region’s job market and current demands and worked with me until I landed in an excellent position that offered me a 12% raise and a great career path for my strengths and interests. I was especially impressed by their collaboration with me to update my resume with the most current format as well as powerful wording to most effectively sell my skills and accomplishments. Additionally, their knowledge of social media, especially LinkedIn, was a huge asset in optimizing my visibility during the search.

The peace of mind and confidence I gained through knowing that I had such a great team representing me during one of the most important decisions I’ll make in my professional life was well worth the investment I made.”
