Jeanie has presented two seminars to our registered candidates. Each presentation focused on interviewing techniques and follow-up. Ms. Coomber was engaging and informative. All of the participants gave her excellent evaluations.
Jeanie was able to give each individual an opportunity to receive some feedback on their interviewing skills. I know that made each person feel that they received some specialized attention, although they were part of a group.
I would happily recommend Jeanie to individuals seeking coaching and job placement advice. Employment applicants would definitely benefit from her knowledge, experience, and professional demeanor. Jeanie also has great platform skills keeping her audience alert and interested during two hour interactive workshops!

Transition Enterprises is a strong asset for individuals at any point in their careers. I know because last year I was looking to change careers – a substantial shift from non-profit to for-profit in an unrelated field. Engulfed in a quagmire of indecision, I enlisted Transition Enterprises.
Jeanie Coomber helped me focus and provided clarity with wisdom that I still rely on daily. Initially, she did a detailed assessment of my history, ambitions, personal attributes and goals. She compelled me to be honest and think past my traditional expectations.
Bringing it all together, Jeanie provided numerous proactive and unique solutions. She set aggressive goals and did not allow me to procrastinate. I am a seasoned executive and Jeanie provided me with sound advice on resumes, thoughtful and creative career avenues, realistic goal setting, interview tactics, and ultimately negotiating strategy.
Now I have "transitioned" to a VP position with a robust and entrepreneurial company achieving all my goals and positioning myself for a significant future. Engaging Transition Enterprises is the single best decision of my career.
JC, Meridian Health System
The group exercises and feedback sessions from the "Communicating in a Virtual World" workshop most valuable. I usually do not like role playing activities, but I was actually able to participate in a relevant role play and use the techniques that Jeanie reviewed with us to come up with some new strategies in my work environment.
Would I recommend this workshop to others? Absolutely!!

Thank you, thank you for your role in an outstanding breakfast event last Friday. As moderator, your energy catalyzed the panel to deliver their own parts in harmony and the audience to ask questions that revealed a high level of engagement with the subject, the panelists and each other. You kept the show on point and on time, and your input during the planning was always so positive.
Thanks again. Looking forward to the next opportunity to work with you!

Jeanie Coomber helped me to identify and clarify my personal and professional goals during a challenging career transition. Jeanie is intuitive and insightful. She identified strengths that I wasn't aware I possessed. She also was able to pinpoint areas of insecurity and helped me to target specific job titles that would complement my skill set. Jeanie opened my eyes to facets of my character and personality that I had previously taken for granted. She helped me to see that I have unique qualities and would be a valuable asset to a wide variety of employers.

helped me to feel confident as I headed toward my first interview.
I knew what to expect and how to prepare. It was good to be informed
about all the do's and don'ts as well.

thoughts were always so disparate, so articulating a clear, concise
message posed a big challenge for me. Our discussions brought
some clarity to the process and made it more manageable. You went
above and beyond to help accommodate my needs in terms of meetings.
You provide high quality, personalized services and were positive,
energized and focused each time we spoke.
JC, MSW Graduate Student
talking with a Transition Enterprises I was able to focus my interviewing
skills. I was able to learn not only how to present my experiences
to an interviewer, but through this process I was able to better
understand what I wanted out of a career. The help I received
with my interviewing skills taught me to be precise with my answers
and to present all the relevant information. Before working with
Transition Enterprises, my answers in interviews tended to be
long winded and nonspecific.

are a reality of life. Jeanie brings her rich real world experience
as well as an open and straight forward style to the coaching
conversation. Positive outcomes are the result. Jeanie brings
a very practical focus to issues that many people in the "people"
business lack, that's an asset.

a whole new world! I have a whole new appreciation for the job

Enterprises to others.

Enterprises' program was very helpful for the young ladies involved
in my program because it explained to them that they have the
ability to do anything in life that they want, but they need to
work hard for it. I want them to have something to look forward
to and Transition Career Programs showed them that they do, and
it is never too early to start thinking of the future and what
they want to do with it. I had been told that Middle School is
too early to think about career development, but I disagree. I
think that children need to start thinking about their future
and how to prepare for it. I thought everything was well prepared
and tailored to suit the needs of the young adults in my program.
I was very pleased with Transition Enterprises.

The collaboration with Transition
Enterprises has helped make our older teen leadership development program more effective and more appropriate. Another benefit has been the increased visibility for Girl Scouting which has always had a solid reputation in youth development, but not necessarily common knowledge. The staff at
Transition Enterprises is not only professional, they are friendly. It was a great pleasure to have fun while working, yet through their professionalism staying on task; using our resource of time wisely — the Girl Scout Way.
