“I really want to thank you for your help. Your guidance was critical in my successful job search. Your assessments provided new, clear ways for me to view what I was seeking in my next job. You, personally, were incalculably crucial by providing a structure to my search effort. Through using your materials, you laid out a road map - instantly I was able to organize myself, the entire process was so much clearer and easier. I knew concretely what I had to do and by knowing the “process” I had confidence that I’d land not just somewhere, but somewhere I’m excited about! I really can’t thank you enough. I know you’re in high demand and not in the position of searching for clients, but if anyone ever asks for a reference, I’d be happy to speak glowingly of your help.”

“Working with Elizabeth was the best investment in my future I could have made.”
– M.S., Seattle

“I am so grateful for my ‘new’ resume. You took what I told you about all the jobs I’ve had, distilled them into a narrative that makes sense, and then re-made my resume to reflect my strengths and experience. The work we did, starting with my new resume, led directly to my new job.”
– K.R., Seattle

“Our daughter was very unhappy in her job and worried about her next step if she were to resign from her position. Afraid to make that move, she contacted Elizabeth for advice. Elizabeth worked with M. over a 10-month period, first to help her try to find more satisfaction in her current job and then, ultimately, to apply to graduate school. Elizabeth’s strength lies in her ability to get to know her clients, their interests, and their goals. With an understanding of who M. is, Elizabeth took M.’s unique capabilities and worked with her to apply to graduate programs. She helped M. refine her marketing materials and develop a convincing personal narrative that landed her in two of the top graduate programs in the country, Dartmouth and Tufts. M. is now pursuing a joint degree knowing exactly what her goals are when finished. Thank you to Elizabeth for the guidance you gave M. and the peace of mind you gave her parents!”
– A.S., Seattle

“After my meetings with you, I left feeling very clear and empowered.”

“Working with Elizabeth was like sitting down with a best friend and laying all my cards on the table. Her listening skills are uncanny; it was almost as if she knew more about me than I did. She listens, processes your garble at record speed, and then hands you little gems of wisdom. After talking with her a number of times, I have come to EXPECT epiphanies regarding my career goals.”
– T.H., Washington DC

“Thank you so much for your support in bringing my vision to being.”
– S.B., Los Angeles

“My son M. graduated from college with several years of work experience but was unsure what to do next. He's a hard worker and didn't want to take a year out to travel and see the world, somewhat to my chagrin! I thought he was good with people and seemed very interested in restaurants, cooking and the food business. He's also not very materialistic, so when his 21st birthday loomed, I was at a loss as to what to ‘get’ him as a gift. Then I remembered Elizabeth and thought some special time with her would be the best present in the world. M. flew to Seattle and spent 2-3 days with Elizabeth, her ‘intensive’ course. He returned with a whole new attitude towards his career path and with many new ideas on how to forward it. She helped him channel his interests and abilities and gave him new confidence in himself. He's passionate about his chosen vocation and we can't thank Elizabeth enough for her time, thoughtfulness, effort, and insight.”
– T.S., San Francisco

“Elizabeth Atcheson is a hero in our household! Our daughters were awash in a sea of apathy and indecision. Our youngest was at a very challenging university, enrolled in a discipline she disliked, and our eldest had just graduated from college with a degree that seemed to lead nowhere, and without a clue as to how to go about discovering how she would carve out a niche for herself in the world.

Elizabeth and our youngest daughter worked together to discover where her aptitudes and passions overlapped, and found a new direction for her studies to take that inspired enthusiasm and gave her back her spark. She also suggested an internship opportunity which perfectly complements her area of study, and which has now become financially rewarding as well.

With our eldest, Elizabeth worked over a period of several weeks to identify her unique interests and skills, which gave her the boost she needed to pursue a career that will be meaningful and fulfilling to her.

Elizabeth is one of the most intuitive, thoughtful people I know, and she has the unique ability to glimpse into her clients' souls to help them do the work that will determine the direction that will give them career satisfaction. It is an amazing and wonderful skill. I wish I had had an Elizabeth when I was honing my career path!"
– P.B., Seattle
