Second Career Professional:
While I was considering a career change, I contacted Targeted Career Solutions for help. Suzanne Boatright quickly assumed the role of my Career Transition Coach. She sought to understand the reasons for making a change, then used the Strong Interest Inventory and the Predictive Index to assess the type of work that most interests me as well as the type of work environment that best suits me. It was very important to me to hear Suzanne’s feedback she interpreted my responses to these independent assessments, because it confirmed for me the need to make a career change. Then, throughout the job application process,
Suzanne drew from her strong background as an HR manager: she guided me in tailoring my resume to fit each job description, and prepped me for each interview, walking through potential questions so that I was prepared to share the most relevant aspects of my career experience each time. And finally, when I received an offer, Suzanne was there to review the offer and help identify questions and clarifications before finalizing. Having Suzanne’s professional and caring support helped give me the confidence that things were moving in a good direction (it otherwise could have been a stressful and discomforting process). The end result is more than I had hoped for: a new job that helps achieve some of my life aspirations through my work. I highly recommend Suzanne and Targeted Career Solutions to anyone who is looking for support and guidance through a career change!

College Bound high school students:
I took my oldest daughter to see Suzanne. She came highly recommended by a friend. After completing the tests and talking with Suzanne, she was able to schedule her freshman classes at IU to follow her strengths. She has since taken all of this information to her advisor and has now narrowed the path to her chosen career. The session with Suzanne helped to bypass many steps at the college level and really made my daughter feel good about her choices.
Because I was so happy with Suzanne's approach and abilities, I took my youngest daughter, who is a junior in high school, to see her. Once again, after testing and consultation, Suzanne was able to help my daughter hone in on her strengths. She also gave my daughter great advice on how to prepare for college. We will continue working with her when it comes time to fill out college applications.
I am so pleased with the services that both of my daughters received at Targeted Career Solutions. Suzanne has been a tremendous advocate for both of my daughters! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for career advisement. Her knowledge, abilities, and kindness make her an asset to anyone seeking career counseling.
