"When I was applying to college, the interview was this dark cloud on the horizon; I had no idea how to prepare. Ethelyn’s coaching and guidance were invaluable; she helped me articulate why I wanted to attend a school and how my own skills would enhance that particular community. She instilled this rock-solid confidence in me and, after our time together, I walked in and out of those interviews with my head held high and they ultimately secured my acceptance to my number one school. Additionally, the interview etiquette Ethelyn teaches goes beyond the college process and into the real world, as you apply for jobs. She taught me things I wouldn’t have known, like: take notes, prepare questions of your own, and ALWAYS send a thank you note."
