Upon completing my graduate degree and entering the job market, I had the absolute pleasure of working with Andy who helped me develop a standout resume, more precisely define my career goals, and prepare for the job interview process. Right from our first conversation, Andy exhibited all of the characteristics of an experienced industry professional: deep expertise in the fields of recruiting and interviewing, close attention to detail, and a clear plan to help me achieve my desired job search outcomes. Andy supplemented these attributes with friendliness and a collaborative spirit that made me feel like a highly valued client despite the fact that I am currently at a more junior stage in my career than many of his typical clients. After putting Andy’s guidance into practice, it wasn’t long before I received an excellent job offer at a boutique consulting firm specializing in green energy. If you are searching for a true expert to help you navigate the next steps in your career, look no further than Andy Gardner – he has the knowledge and processes to help you maximize your chances of success.
