“I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your program. Your insights proved invaluable in my daughter’s search for the best college fit. You have managed to fill a critical void that exists between college prep classes and traditional high school counselors.”Ken, Parent, Coppell, TX
Hi Parley, The transition is going really well! A LOT of training and learning, but I love it! This fits my personality perfectly and I don't feel anxiety going to work anymore! Again, I truly appreciate your help, I couldn't have done it without you.Taylor, recent graduate, Dallas, TX & Washington, DC
"Thanks for all your efforts to help Ryan land a job. We are delighted with the outcome! He was surprised at getting two offers from quality companies. He went through 4 rounds of interviews and ended up being selected out of a starting field of 50! Ryan told me he felt confident in the interviewing process and that had he not worked with CareerWon, the whole experience would have been very intimidating. So...WELL DONE and Many THANKS!!!"Parent, Katy, TX
