We asked our community to share their coaching experience.
It was one of the best investments I have made in myself! Working with Angie at Gen Dev has made it very clear what my values & skills are, what I'm aspiring for, and what is important to me in my next career. I enjoyed every session with her, and overall I gained a lot of self-confidence in my work experiences, and ultimately, I was able to land my new job, which I'm super excited about. I would say that this is helpful if someone needs guidance for the next steps in their career, whether it is an industry change, job role change, or simply unsure of the next steps. I was unsure of the industry transition that I was about to make and the value I bring to the table as an employee. I was hoping to find a coach who could guide me from a more holistic approach rather than land another job. My pre-consultation with Angie was promising, professional and I felt confident in her skills as a career coach. Being able to talk and open up to someone about my work insecurities was almost therapeutic to overcome those insecurities.

I doubled my salary and successfully pivoted my career by landing a job at one of the largest technology companies in the world, Amazon Web Services (AWS)! Angie has a keen eye for positioning a person's executive career achievements, drawing out the details, and quantifying a person's impact. Angie's approach is strategic, thoughtful, and polished. She empowered me to successfully pivot my career and speak about my experience from a macro level as opposed to focusing on specific tasks or projects. Angie wrote my resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and coached me on two mock interviews. I can honestly say Angie is a critical part of advancing your professional career.

General Development is in the business of positioning their clients in the best possible way to achieve the career goals they desire. I have felt as if I've been stuck in my position for years, with no prospects for advancing my career; indeed, with no idea where to turn to next. After speaking with Angie during my initial consultation, I began to see a light at the end of the tunnel for me -- a hope for the future that I had not felt in years. During the process of reworking my resume with her, and boosting my interview skills, I was able to see my professional history in a new light and realize that I do have significant value and can share that value with any potential employer. I was actually surprised by all the professional achievements I had made in the past; I had forgotten my past successes. Angie guided me toward remembering them, highlighting them on my resume and during job interviews. After my project with Angie was done, I knew where I wanted to head professionally and how to get there. My confidence in myself has returned, and that in and of itself is priceless.

The process truly made me feel like a client that was cared for and listened to. What surprised me most about the service was how easy the process was. I would describe the service as a resume writer and career coach that really dives into your accomplishments and work history to provide the most accurate and professional resume that can be adapted to any job description or position. From the discovery call, Angie not only made me energized about my resume and job hunting but also about my career. I was excited about how energized I felt about getting the resume together and start applying to progress in my career and apply for jobs that are next level for my position.

Working with Angie was extremely easy. She asks the right questions to make you think about how your career to help form the perfect resume. If you're on the fence, I'd say just do it. It’s an easy process and really makes you think and helps you get ready for the interview process.

I’ve learned a ton about myself working with Angie and generational development! She really helped me become a better professional. I went from working with smaller companies to working for ADP, a Fortune 250 Company. Before working with Angie, that type of company wouldn’t even have given me a chance to interview. She helped me sell myself and my qualities, uncover skills I didn’t know I had or had taken for granted and taught me how to leverage networking to get better opportunities. On top of that, she optimized my LinkedIn and resume to be seen more by recruiters and hiring managers. That’s just a small example of what generational development has done to help my career. What surprised me most was how Angie went above and beyond to make sure I got the most out of our time together. Whether I was flaky because I was going through things emotionally or she needed to go overtime to explain something to me, she never gave up on me, I never felt rushed, and she never once complained. I always felt supported

If you're on the fence about working with Gen Dev, DO IT YOU WONT REGRET IT! I have been so nervous about leaving the field of teaching because I have been doing it for ten years. I am passionate about DEI and want to transition into the corporate sector to explore those talents and ideas. Angie celebrated all of my past and current accomplishments and helped me visualize how I can use my current skills for these types of future jobs. We also did a mock interview which was incredible. Angie practiced with me several times and I felt like the interview was awesome with NHL as a result of that. I have been more confidently applying to jobs with my new resume and cover letter and linkedin profile. She is incredible at what she does.

You are making a big mistake if you do not hire Angie and her company to work with you. I was desperate to find an individual or company to assist me in updating my resume. My resume was outdated. In fact, my resume dated my age. Now it appears clean, professional and ageless. I initially had a conversation with Angie, and for me, after that initial chat, it was a “no brainer” for me. Angie is a true professional; she is smart, capable, confident, and kind. She is meticulous with her work. Angie responds quickly to your needs; although we never FaceTimed or met in person, I felt I had someone who was always diligently working on my behalf. It was truly a wonderful experience working with Angie. Although I know Angie was super busy, I never felt she didn’t have time for me. It was a wonderful experience working with Generational Development. It took little time to get the job done. I continue to get compliments on my resume.

I found a new job in a very competitive market! The end product was so good; it really got me noticed. As a senior job applicant, I was very nervous about ageism. Angie took my experience and made it stand out on my resume, so that prospective employers saw my skills and not my age. If I were to recommend Gen Dev's service, I would describe it as They listen. They dissect. They show you how to dig deep into a person's work history and verbalize it in writing to make a strong resume.
