I worked with Sharla on my Resume Rewrite. It was a while since I had been in the job market and she was recommended to me through Pavilion. I cannot say enough good things about working with her!

She went above and beyond my expectations from coaching me on navigating the job market to writing a killer resume that landed a lot of interviews for me. Everything from updating my LinkedIn profile (which had recruiters and talent acquisition managers reaching out to me) and her insight and ability to understand what was important for the product marketing jobs I wanted to apply for.

I would recommend Sharla to anyone that needs resume writing or job search coaching!” 

Ashley G., Director of Product Marketing

Pittsburgh, PA

“My experience with MentoHR was great! I feel like communication between us was always clear and understanding, and that definitely helped with how my resume looks now. It’s very professional and provides all of the information I wanted.

With that being said, it’s definitely helped my job search. A recruiter stated how impressive it looks! I’ve had interviews with two different pharmaceutical companies so far and those have been going very well. If I didn’t have your help, my job search would’ve been more difficult.”

Lexi D., College Senior

Albany, New York

“Sharla is exceptional at her craft. I connected with Sharla with the goal of having my resume updated.

She took the time to talk, go over points in my resume, recommendations on what should be there and what should be removed with clear explanations on the recommendations. I was very pleased with the outcome of this engagement.

I would recommend Sharla to anyone looking for a resume revamp.” 

Laura M., Field Marketing Manager

Toronto, Ontario

“Sharla was great to work with – very professional and timely.  Her turnaround time was excellent, price was reasonable and service helped me feel confident about my resume and excited to apply for jobs.

It was great to talk through my work experience so I felt confident in my story.”

Sarah U., VP Clinical Solutions & Partnerships

New York City

“Working with MentoHR on my resume update was a real game-changer for me and my job search. I knew I had a lot to offer employers but I wasn’t getting much success throughout the job application process. MentoHR helped me enhance my resume in order to provide the best possible first impression to prospective employers by telling a cohesive story about what I have to offer as an employee. Immediately after the resume update, I started getting calls back. MentoHR can benefit professionals at any stage of their career. Speaking from my personal experience, I would encourage early career professionals to take advantage of everything MentoHR has to offer. Making this investment to reflect early on in your career will save you a lot of time in the long run. Personally, working with MentoHR supported me in my job search in many ways. I greatly appreciated the time, thought, and professional expertise that Sharla offers. Looking for a job can be a full-time job in itself. I felt that Sharla provided me with unique, valuable tools and strategies to approach the job search head-on, and I will apply these strategies for the rest of my career.”

Emily V., Research and Data Associate

New York City

“MentoHR went beyond just helping with updating my resume.  They took the time to understand what I am looking for next in my career and provided guidance on everything from how to best set your LinkedIn profile to adjusting the summary on the resume based on the position you are applying for.  They provided me with a resume that showcases my career accomplishments and helps me stand out from the competition.”

Steven C., Senior Director Customer Success

Albany, New York

“MentoHR helped bring my resume and confidence to the next level for my job search. Sharla was able to offer helpful tools, clear and quick communication, and a personal touch.

I give them a 10/10 and would recommend to anyone who wants to get ahead in today’s competitive job market.”

Jamie M., Public Health Educator

“I worked with Sharla while I was looking for a job. When she is working with you, you feel like you are the most important priority. She gave me pointers on my resume and interview presentation, listened to me practice and made great suggestions on what would improve my presence and delivery so I could get hired.

Because of what I learned from Sharla, it is helping me craft my goals in my new job and be mindful of things I am doing now that will help me build my resume for the future.”

Jeanne C., Application Specialist

“Sharla and MentoHR were a great pleasure to work with. She was beyond thorough in asking questions and digging deep to identify the best strengths and successes to highlight on my updated resume. She focused on how these strengths and successes fit in best for not just a particular role I was seeking but specific companies I was targeting.

Sharla is the consummate professional in her approach and has become a trusted advisor.”

Christine W., Business Development Leader

An incredible enhancement to my business.”

As we search for a new member of Senior Leadership, she’s been able to answer every question, provide high-level discussion and lay out the key pieces of information that we need to make the best hiring decision.”
