  • Renee Hultgren

    Communications and Events Professional, was a client of Karen’s

Karen changed my life! She gave me the tools to not only believe in myself but to further myself. She built me from the ground up! If you trust the process and will be patient, you will not only have a better job, but you will be a happier and more efficient worker in the workplace. A-Plus Career and Resume, LLC helped hone me as an efficient, wealth of resource employee. For me she really educated me about the hiring process, taking the unknowns out of the equation, and crafted a resume that resulted in multiple interviews quickly. I cannot say enough good things about her Career Coaching, Job Search and Interview Coaching, and Resume Writing. In my new job she still today is having an impact. I know how to justify a raise, add more value to the employer, and handle conflict better in the workplace. You cannot afford to not use A-Plus Career and Resume. Karen can help you determine if you should prepare to get a two or four-year degree, how to use the degree you currently have, what environment you work best in, and what job-types work best for you. Do not just take a job, get the job/career you want.

  • Jonathan Pine

    Sales Professional, and client of Karen's, July 2021

I went to Karen when I was looking to make a career change but wasn’t quite sure where or how to start looking. Because of her coaching, I was able to make a decision that encompassed many of my values, future goals, strengths, skills, and areas of interests. Karen is friendly and knowledgeable, and she has helped open my eyes to career paths and opportunities I didn’t even know existed. The personalized and in-depth services she offers are unparalleled to any resources I have used in the past. I cannot speak highly enough of Karen and all the ways she has helped me, and I would strongly recommend A+ Career and Resume to anybody looking to advance their career!

I knew immediately after meeting Karen that our sessions together were going to be valuable. Her knowledge in the field is evident, and she helped prepare me for my current role better than I could have imagined. Karen was detail-oriented, patient, and thoughtful when we spoke which made the process that much more enjoyable. I am so thankful for everything she taught me, as well as her help in piecing together my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn. I would highly recommend Karen’s services to anyone.
