"As a follow-up to Renee’s excellent executive consulting work with me during the past three years, I want to express my deep appreciation and respect for her effective work. I am delightedly ensconced in the latest evolution of my career and deeply appreciate Renee’s sagacious and strategic career counseling services which helped me arrive at this point. Renee is a highly skilled and effective practitioner in a difficult but vital field. I will welcome the opportunity to refer colleagues to her as I become aware of their career transition needs."

"When I first met Renee, I felt like she took my hand and walked me through the maze of choices in the job market and life. She listened to my interests and concerns and figured out an optimum career path and what the next step would be. She then helped me revise my resume and strategize how to approach the application and interview process. The net result was that I got that out-of-reach job right away. I would highly recommend Renee as a career coach."

"After 23 years working for the same Fortune 500 company, I found myself unemployed and terrified of the future. Renee provided much needed guidance and technical support in the form of skills assessment, resume development, interview skills, and job search strategies. I felt I had someone to turn to when I needed it most. As a result, I secured a wonderful new position in a growth industry and love going to work again. I would recommend Renee without reservation."

"Ms. Howatt helped me to remain clearheaded and relaxed as I considered two employment offers. Her pragmatic questions allowed me to quickly identify and evaluate the benefits and costs of each position. Renee's coaching skills assisted me in making the right choice, as evidenced by the fact that I experienced none of the typical buyer's remorse that often occurs when one makes important career decisions."

"Renee Howatt taught me the fine art of networking with anyone, anywhere. I am no longer timid with complete strangers and have the ability to tell people what type of job I am looking for and my background, all while weaving into a casual conversation. Renee gives outstanding support though all stages of the job search."

"Renee will do everything she can to help you find the job you want. Resourceful and insightful, she is able to focus on the critical issues and seek out possible solutions. I found an ideal full-time position that allows me to work at home and uses my substantial knowledge as a tax attorney."

Renee knows what employers are looking for and she has a great philosophy and approach to the application process; she is confident she can assist you in getting the job you want. She helped me revamp my resume so that it presented a concise and powerful picture of who I am and what I could bring to my next position. She taught me how to write a streamlined and effective cover letter. And she coached me on how to field interview questions. My outlook improved due to her concrete technical suggestions and her encouraging attitude; I was confident that her guidance was allowing me to present a better product to prospective employers. After working with Renee for two weeks, I applied to two jobs. I was offered a great position within the following two weeks. She supported me throughout the process, from phone interview advice to negotiating salary. I credit her with my current employment.
