I reached out to Elyse when I was feeling lost and in need of some direction in my job search. From our initial meeting, it was clear she was interested in getting to know me and my situation and wanted to tailor her support to my specific needs and priorities. During the course of our work together, she provided helpful information on the job market and job searching, helped me understand my options and clarify my goals, and helped me develop a plan for job search. She was very responsive between meetings -- she followed up with helpful articles and resources and even sent along a job posting from someone in her network.
I found Elyse to be both very knowledgeable and also a very comforting and grounding presence in the uncertainty of the job search. I wish I had contacted her sooner and would definitely reach out to her again in the future. I highly recommend Blooming Careers Coaching!

Elyse was very kind at a time in my career when I really needed help. She understood the needs of a more experienced person seeking to make a change after may years at the same employer. The resume she worked on for me was amazing looking, presented me well and deleted items that were no longer needed. I found the reflection writing exercises that explored values and goals to be so necessary in determining a good fit for both me and a potential employer. Her thoughtful guidance was just what I needed and, in the end, I made a successful move. I recommend her service highly.

I would like to recommend Elyse Pipitone at Blooming Careers Coaching to anyone looking for a job or considering switching/advancing their career. My personal experience with her was outstanding. She helped me in polishing my resume, making sure that my skills were visible to recruiters and hiring managers. Together, we created a great professional LinkedIn account. She coached me during the interview preparation process, and provided counseling sessions when the process was tough. All these actions resulted in the landing of my dream job with a great company and great benefits. THANK YOU Elyse!

Elyse helped a ton with my career exploration journey! I wasn't sure where to start with the process. Through her guidance, I discovered I had more applicable experience than I realized, and passions that I could follow. She broke the process down into manageable steps through thought-provoking writing assignments and interesting assessments that didn't leave me feeling like I had been put in a typology box. She guided me toward affordable training opportunities and helped me polish my resume and cover letter into much more tailored and marketable versions. As a wealth of resources, she helped me find job postings outside of the usual online sites. Always encouraging, I couldn't have asked for a better coach!

I contacted Blooming Careers Coaching to help improve my resume and improve my fruitless job search. A very thoughtful professional, Elyse listened attentively to my frustrations and helped me transform that frustration into action. She met with me virtually to discuss what my options were and how to best apply a winning strategy. She helped me dissect my resume for weaknesses and highlight the things in my work experience that would look good to prospective employers. I have experienced more inquiries since that transformation and have my second interview for a great position this week. Worth every dollar spent, plus more. I highly recommend Blooming Careers Coaching.

A friend recommended Elyse to help me jumpstart my job search. I felt like a dinosaur with over 30 years of experience to represent, and limited understanding of the best tools and practices for this Covid-19 time of transition. We had a phone conversation about my goals to improve my resume, tighten my cover letter, give my LinkedIn a facelift, and better understand how I might better leverage job search resources. Elyse then offered appreciative and specific feedback and edits to my written materials and provided additional curated resources for self- paced study materials to help me understand the “what” and “why.” My doubts about having too much experience were reframed as strengths, with encouragement and support about leveraging and strategically featuring that work.

Elyse was a calming presence throughout the beginning stage of my job search, when I was both fired up and anxious to re-enter career after taking time off to raise my son. She covered a lot of the job search process with me, including job exploration, job search techniques, resume/cover letter help, and interview prep. She would keep me in the loop, forwarding useful articles on job search/ interview prep and sometimes actual job positions. During interview prep, Elyse's voice over the phone was soothing, yet she had a practical style of coaching. There were days she was doing beyond her call of duty.
