Most importantly, he showed me how to effectively convey my skills and accomplishments in my resume with the right vocabulary and phrasing. In fact, one of the first resumes I’ve submitted since working with Josh has resulted in an interview!”

Things weren’t coming together. I knew I needed help. Josh has been so very helpful in me rejuvenate my job search. I am much more clear about my career objectives and the types of positions which I am best suited for, since meeting with Josh. Confidence and focus are key for success during the job search. I liken my work with Josh to that of my actual running coach. I am able to reach milestones which I wasn’t able to on my own (some I never considered). Even when I’m having a tough time, Josh as a coach has been helpful keeping me focused and achieving my next steps. Investing in one’s self and getting the extra help when you need it is vital. I’m glad I realized this and sought out Josh’s help. His constructive input and feedback have been extremely meaningful. I look forward to continuing my work with Josh.”

He suggested that I change my search strategy and not only offered encouragement, but concrete suggestions about what to change. He brought the viewpoint of a hiring manager, which was incredibly insightful. With his help, my resume underwent a total makeover and I landed 3 interviews and a job offer!”

“I’ve been at NIH for 11 years, so it’s like a home to me. But, I’m definitely excited for this new position and really looking forward to it. My coworkers in my lab asked how I got the position because many of them are looking for a change, so I have a number of people that I will refer to STEM Career Services. Josh’s advice really helped me get this job. I appreciate it greatly.”

“I didn’t know how much I didn’t know about consulting until after I met with Josh. I am now much more prepared to find a Government Consulting job.”

Travis Dittmer
Associate at Booz Allen Hamilton

“I got my resume previously reviewed by several university career consultants and reviewers at international conferences, but Dr. Henkin is the best resume reviewer I have ever experienced. He shared valuable suggestions to rebuild the resume to present my skills and capabilities in more effective and coherent way. He is not only an excellent career consultant but also great professional counselor and advisor, welcomes discussion on any professional concerns and shares thorough and logical advises.”

Mahendra Sreeramoju, Ph.D
Research Investigator at US WorldMeds

“Dr. Henkin’s services are both top notch and conveniently available. I employed his services to help me determine both what I am good at and what fields I may be good at, though had never contemplated. Perhaps more valuable than his thorough knowledge of the technical field was his ability to probe and work to understand me, often asking Socratic questions that led me to delve into self reflection that I would not have otherwise done. This is the attribute I found to truly set him apart from other advisers and that will prompt me to recommend him specifically in the future. While getting to know ones clients is certainly helpful to both parties, I truly felt like he went above and beyond in this category and helped me find not just another job, and not just a job that relates to the skills I’ve learned, but his clever insights have led me toward a career that I will genuinely enjoy, as well as be able to financially grow within.

Thank you Josh. I hope you help many more post millennials with finding the job they are apt to feel the best at in the long run.”
