“Lainee Knows the Importance of Professional Branding” 

Our firm asked Career Esquire to present to our incoming class during orientation week. Lainee’s program offered our new associates excellent practical tips on how to succeed as young attorneys.  Lainee walked the group through several real-life scenarios which provided great insight into real law firm situations.  Lainee knows the importance of professional branding and is focused on teaching those skills from the start.   From an administrators point of view, Lainee is great to work with – passionate, flexible and responsive. I would absolutely use her services in the future.

“Lainee Provided Valuable Tips on how to Stand out From the Competition… I would Recommend her to Anyone Looking to Gain an Edge in this Competitive Job Market.”

Working with Lainee has been an excellent experience. I consulted with Career Esquire for advice on how to handle interviews for my first job.  Lainee provided very valuable tips and advice on how to standout from the competition.  After working together, I received a job offer for an excellent position.  Lainee really took the time to help me succeed.  She went above and beyond by spending much more time than our two scheduled one-hour sessions.  She also has a great network of potential contacts and even found me some per diem work as well.  It was really a delightful experience working with her and I would recommend her to anyone looking to gain an edge in this competitive job market.

“Lainee is Enthusiastic about Helping People Achieve the Career they Want”

“I went to Lainee for career advice after I graduated from law school,  a time when I was not sure which area of law I wanted to practice, or where I wanted to start my career.  Lainee provided advice on various areas of traditional and non-traditional legal career paths, and with her help, I was  able to focus in on career options that were the best fit for me. Lainee also assisted me with tailoring my resume  and cover letter  to my specific field. Additionally, we worked on  various networking skills. This included the in’s/out’s of Linkedin, answering questions about setting up informational interviews, brainstorming the best questions to ask when sitting down with someone, as well as reviewing follow up. Lainee was also able to help me obtain informationational interviews in areas in which I      was interested.  Lainee is enthusiastic about helping people achieve the career they want and gives her clients her full attention. I will continue to consult with Lainee as I continue on in my career.”

The world is filled with a lot of people that can dish out career advice, but very few do it with the passion and precision that Lainee does it with. Lainee is exceptionally skilled at breaking down your ideas, thoughts and desires regarding your career into manageable steps.

“Her Ability to Network is Unparalleled.”

“Lainee is a long time colleague who has helped me tremendously with my career path.  When making the transition from the practice of law to a career in the insurance industry, she was incredibly supportive and assisted me in obtaining an interview for an In-House position.  Her contacts in the industry were invaluable.  Her ability to network is unparalleled.   I owe my career happiness to her.  I would recommend her to anyone considering a career change and looking for assistance networking.”

“I went to Lainee for advice regarding whether a job change from the practice of law was right for me.  I wanted to see what else was out there but I was not sure how to pursue a new career path.  Lainee offered solid advice and direction.  She showed me how to utilize contacts that I already had in order to pursue other careers in the industry.  She also helped to get me an interview through her contacts in the insurance industry. Lainee prepped me for the interviews and offered thoughtful suggestions on how to handle difficult questions, as well as how to communicate with HR. After the interviews I met with her again to discuss whether this was the right job for me.  She was a great resource for me and I fully intend to consult with her in the future.”

In my experience she was willing to provide extensive background concerning my interests outside the legal field. When I was seeking a job outside my firm, she not only counseled me on the job, and the company, but the interview opportunity I received was a direct result of her advocacy on my behalf. I continue to reach out to her for advice and information on opportunities that arise.”
