“April was my Career Coach starting December 17, 2009….Her first step was helping me decide what I wanted to do. Then she kept me on track every step of the way until I found a job. I found her empathy as well as her feedback indispensable in my job search. I spent January following April’s tips on networking groups as well as preparing myself for interviewing. This included redoing my resume under her supervision. With April’s coaching I began interviewing in February and by the end of the month I had four irons in the fire. In early March I received an offer that was close to perfect for me.
By the way I am 57 years old. I am letting people know that because I want people to understand that there are no barriers you can’t overcome with a coach like April on your side.”

April proved to be a tremendous advocate in helping me identify what is important to me, the possibilities that existed and how my talents and experience translate to opportunities that I had not considered previously. April is also an amazing networker and introduced me to numerous people that have and continue to provide advice. I’ve also learned from April numerous strategies for being a better networker the rest of my professional career.”

“If ever there was a totally positive personality, it would belong to April Williams! In the time that I have known April, I have found her to be a top notch professional, highly motivated to success – with an engaging, warm and professional demeanor to complement her business acumen. April is a compelling speaker. She assisted the Saint Hubert Job and Networking Ministry recently with an excellent presentation that captured the audience with her enthusiasm, smile, and helpful, on-target material focused on success in a job search. By example and presentation, she showed the audience of over 100 how to represent themselves to an employer. The lesson certainly took hold as people left with an up-lifted, positive feeling and re-spirited toward their goal. April is a gem – I am pleased to know her and this recommendation is most sincere!”
