Ben M. - Texas A&M University

“I was completely lost on where to start when looking for an internship that was outside of a college’s career fair. I’m so thankful I fell into the arms of Career Onward! They know all the ins and outs, and the dos and don’ts to help you feel confident, prepared, and professional throughout each step of this process. They understood exactly what I was looking for in an internship and gave me plenty of companies to look into, both large and small. The interview preparation allowed me to approach each interview with full confidence and gave me a platform that I will use as I start my professional life. The personal help they offer is unmatched and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process, and I plan to use them again when job hunting.”

“Lori is absolutely excellent at what she does and accepts nothing but exceptional results for her clients. Since I worked with Lori from Indiana, we communicated via phone for the majority of the time. Despite our lack of face-to-face communication, I really felt like I got to know Lori on a personal level. She is extremely professional yet personable, which makes it easy for her clients to trust and confide in her regarding their professional concerns.  I would highly recommend Lori to any recent graduate who would benefit from guidance in their job search process.”

Katie H. - Texas State University

“Lori is a great personable and professional woman who helped me land a job in 6 weeks! Her passion and desire to help others achieve their goals is shown throughout her work. I was impressed with her ability to make me feel as if I was her most important client. I would be lost without her positivity and guidance throughout the job hunting experience. Lori was with me through the entire process from interview to job offer to phone calls on the first day of my new job. I now have skills that I will carry with me throughout my life. I had a great time getting to know her and would recommend her to any and all students and recent graduates.”

She’s extremely passionate about her work, and that’s what makes her a wonderful person to work with. She empowered me with the right tools to succeed and get the job!”

Alex V. - The University of Texas at Austin

“The improvements Lori helped me make to my resume, LinkedIn, and interviewing style were enormous, but perhaps the most valuable attribute that Lori gave me was confidence going into the big interview. Between university studies and starting a career there is a “gap” that every student has to try to cross and it can be daunting. The lack of structure of the whole process caused me a lot of anxiety. Lori helped me close that gap by being a reliable source of information and giving structure to a process that previously lacked it. Without Lori, I don’t think I would be interning with Goldman Sachs this summer.”
