"I would encourage all levels of talent and leaders to engage with Linda to become more adept at interviewing...and winning in critical conversations."
Jeff Lang CEO and Board Member of Public and Private Companies Houston, TX
“Linda Raynier is an exceptional enabler and coach to help all levels of talent reach their next steps in their professional career journey. Linda really gets it. Even though I have been a successful CEO, COO and Board Member I learned about staying on task, listening better and providing concise, relevant answers in my meetings and interviewing conversations. I joined two Board of Director roles during my discussions with Linda and I continue to check in with Linda from time to time to keep learning. Coaching sessions with Linda have enabled other C-level operator opportunities come my way, and these were ones that I've not enacted on. I would encourage all levels of talent and leaders to engage with Linda to become more adept at interviewing conversations, telling your story while building chemistry with new opportunities and winning in critical conversations."
"With Linda's help, I was able to get around 10 phone interviews with well established companies, moving forward to in person for all and landing 3 offers in 2 months' time."
Jaennia Ding Executive Assistant New York, NY
“Before working with Linda, I just got laid off suddenly. I was quite sad, agitated and anxious that no one reached out to interview me. I applied to about 200 jobs in 2 months through recruiting agencies and online search engines, and only got 2 to 3 phone interviews and 1 in person interview. As a result, I doubted my desirability to employers and lost all my confidence. While working with Linda, I realized what I was doing wrong, such as not highlighting the relevant skills for the jobs I was applying to, not leveraging technology effectively to reach out to recruiters and not structuring my interview answers strategically to showcase why I am the perfect fit for the company. Without Linda's help, I would be working an entry level temporary job with inadequate pay, wondering when I would be told to pack up my desk again. With Linda's help, I was able to get around 10 phone interviews with well established companies, moving forward to in person for all and landing 3 offers in 2 months' time. I accepted a dream role with one of the oldest companies in North America with amazing benefits, above the salary range I asked for. When I think about where I am at in my career now, I feel unstoppable. I was finally able to make the industry switch I wanted and have a clear picture for how to navigate forward. Most importantly, I am passionate about my job! I recommend working with Linda because she teaches you one of the most important lessons in life, prepares you for any job you have your eyes on in the future, and brings you a life full of purpose and passion."
"The biggest win for me was that I had successfully secured a job offer after only a few months of working with Linda."
Kimberley H. Project Manager Sydney, AUS
“Before working with Linda, my resume was long winded and it has now become much more precise without compromising the required information for recruiters. The potential of attracting quality employers to look into my improved resume had increased. My interview skills had improved significantly, and not only did I feel more confident, but I now have the ability to tackle interview questions and nail them down with convincing and professional responses. The biggest win for me was that I had successfully secured a job offer after only a few months of working with Linda. Linda provides great support and very clear direction to realign oneself to their desired goal. Instead of working the answers out for you, Linda actually encourages her clients to try to work out responses by themselves and then discuss and fine tune the answers in a few sessions. This requires being proactive and this exercise positively motivated me to work hard to achieve my ultimate dream job."
"By working with Linda, I not only got my dream job in A MONTH, but also a very competitive salary offer (way more than I expected!)"
Sharon H. MCN, RDN, LDN Registered Dietician Chicago, IL
“Before working with Linda, I had been looking for a job for two months and sent out 10-15 job applications with only one phone interview. I felt depressed and even started blaming my innocent baby for taking up my time. After working with Linda, she helped me with my resume and after sending out just three job applications I started to get calls for interviews. It was amazing to see how fast the recruiters respond when they really like your resume and think you are the one that they are looking for. Before that, I was doubting my resume, my cover letter, and my ability to pass the interview. But now, I feel super confident that my resume will always be the star and I could nail all interviews that come my way in the future. By working with Linda, I not only got my dream job in A MONTH, but also a very competitive salary offer (way more than I expected!). Her strategies really work! I am now super excited to start my new job. My husband and I are both glad that we decided to work with Linda. I recommend everyone to work with her because she’s got the talent to really find out your value and put them in front of the recruiters and future employers. She knows the mindset of the recruiters and employers. She helped me obtain an advanced level job with a competitive starting salary. My salary is going to go up from there and it is totally worth the investment."
"Linda helped me revamp my resume with better clarity, focus, and professionalism and (no kidding) I immediately got so much response that I could barely handle it! Now I am working in my dream job for a big financial company earning very well."
Herky Feroz, MBA Project Manager Malvern, PA
“I had been following Linda's YouTube videos for a long time and really wished to work with her one-on-one. Before working with Linda, I was very unhappy with my job where I was underpaid and overly stressed. I didn't have the financial means to hire a career coach but knowing Linda's professionalism, I thought of it as an investment in my future. Before coaching with Linda, I was applying randomly for a few months but not getting the type of response and job I wished for. Linda showed me what I was doing wrong. She helped me revamp my resume with better clarity, focus, and professionalism and (no kidding) I immediately got so much response that I could barely handle it! This is true and I don't wish to mislead anyone but I do want to emphasize that putting your own effort is instrumental and the ride is rocky so being patient and relentless in your search along with following Linda's guidance and expertise along the way is a sure path to success. Without Linda's help, I would have remained in an unhappy job for God knows how long! Now I am working in my dream job for a big financial company earning very well. I loved her approach to challenge me often to look at things from the employer's perspective and during mock interviews when I would say, 'I have this qualification and that experience', she would say, 'ok good but why do I care?' (from the employers point of view). So I learnt to shift my thinking and approach matters differently. This is coming in handy in my current job too. I highly recommend working with Linda because she not only helped me achieve my career goals but also helped me to gain confidence, increase my self worth, and have a better life! Thank you Linda and hope many others benefit from your coaching too."
"It took me exactly 2 months since working with Linda to get the first interview opportunity and I nailed it. My situation was unique, because there were very limited opportunities in my city. Now I landed my dream job in a company of my choice. I also have the resume writing and interview skills which I can use in the future."
Tina Xu Finance & Management Professional Adelaide, AUS
“Before working with Linda, I was applying for jobs online for about 2 months without much response. I was kind of depressed and lost my confidence because I knew I had the knowledge for the job I wanted to apply to but no one got back to me because of my lack of industry experience. While working with Linda, I realised what I was doing wrong, such as applying jobs for the sake of applying and sending out long cover letters to try to tell the recruiters how good I was instead of how matchable I was. Linda taught me how to write a high-level resume to attract the recruiters' eyes, how to compel my resume to the job descriptions word by word, line by line. She also taught me how to answer the interview questions from the interviewer's point of view which really helped me to land my job. Without Linda's help, I would still be wasting my time and efforts on applying for jobs online and struggling. It took me exactly 2 months since working with Linda to get the first interview opportunity and I nailed it. My situation was unique, because there were very limited opportunities in my city. Now I landed my dream job in a company of my choice. I also have the resume writing and interview skills which I can use in the future. When I think about where I'm at in my career now, I definitely feel more confident and I feel that I have a bright career future ahead of me. I recommend working with Linda because as a career coach, Linda used to be a recruiter and she really knows what the recruiters/hiring managers think which is so important in landing a job offer. And the strategies are also very useful in your career lifetime."
"I recommend working with Linda because she can guide and teach you how to land the job that you've always dreamed of."
Ellen K. Marketing Professional Los Angeles, CA
“Before working with Linda I felt very lost and frustrated all the time, I never heard back after I sent out hundreds of resumes. However, while working with her I realized what I was doing wrong whether it be how I worded my resume or how I presented myself in job interviews. Linda really taught me how to properly structure my resume and how to enter an interview with confidence, incorporating her unique strategies. Without her help, I would still be struggling with finding a job and now I just started a new job at a very established global company that I always wanted to work at. When I think about where I am in my career now, I feel very confident and excited. I recommend working with Linda because she can guide and teach you how to land the job that you've always dreamed of. Let her be your career coach and you will be so amazed by how much you can accomplish in such a short period of time."
"Without Linda’s help, I would still be unemployed or settle for a dead end job at a company or industry that I don’t care about. Now I work as a divisional controller for a large publicly traded company with lots of room for career growth."
Ted T. Divisional Controller Calgary, AB
“Before working with Linda, I was looking for a new employer for several months and was losing my confidence in landing a great job. I’ve had several interviews where I was one of the finalists but could not land an offer of employment. While working with Linda, I realized what I was doing wrong, such as not being able to effectively market myself on how my experience and skills would be able to fulfill my potential employers’ needs as shown on their job postings. Linda taught me how to keep interviewers engaged and interested. She also guided me through salary negotiations and helped me get the amount I thought was fair. Without Linda’s help, I would still be unemployed or settle for a dead end job at a company or industry that I don’t care about. Now I work as a divisional controller for a large publicly traded company with lots of room for career growth. When I think about where I’m at in my career now, I feel very excited that my career is moving forward and happy for landing a job that I thought I was not going to get because I didn’t have specific experience in that particular industry. I recommend working with Linda because she can help improve your interview skills and guide you on what interviewers are looking for at each stage of the interview process."
"Once I had followed Linda’s recommendations, I received many compliments from recruiting companies for my well-rounded resume. She also did a great job in preparing me for face-to-face interviews."
Svetlana G. CPA, CMA - Accounting Professional Markham, ON
"When I decided it was time to move ahead in my career, I sought advice from a professional career consultant and found Linda. From the very first meeting, I realized that she has good business sense and intuition to understand what I was trying to achieve. Her expertise outlined right away the need to revamp my resume and we went from that step and through the full spectrum of services that Linda offers. As the experts in our own field, we tend to speak “our” language using our own terminology, and this is not always well understood by recruiters to know exactly what you are good at. Once I had followed Linda’s recommendations, I received many compliments from recruiting companies for my well-rounded resume. She also did a great job in preparing me for face-to-face interviews. The whole process of a successful job search involves many aspects, and the most important ones are definitely a good resume and excellent interview skills which Linda helped me to improve. I would absolutely recommend Linda as a consultant for your next career move."
"While working with Linda, I got myself 8 interviews and received 3 job offers before we even finished her 8-week one-on-one program, giving me the privilege to choose where I wanted to work before I had even finished the course."
Ariane De Backer Music Business Intern Brussels, BEL
"Before working with Linda, I was reading online about how to write a good resume but was struggling to find something that really worked. I felt like nothing was working and I started to doubt whether landing my dream offer was actually achievable. While working with Linda, I realized what I was doing wrong. My approach to resume building completely lacked strategy and I also failed to identify what job recruiters really needed in order to make myself attractive to them. I also realized the reason I wasn't able to sell myself was because I didn't have a personal brand to showcase my qualities, skills and experience. Linda taught me how to be strategic in understanding how to identify what each and every recruiter needed on a case-by-case basis, using a simple strategy with an effective way to effortlessly adapt it to the requirements specific to each and every role I was applying to. Without Linda's help, I would likely still be struggling trying to build a top-notch resume and would gradually be losing more and more confidence in myself and my own potential as I'd fail to see results coming in. Linda really opened my eyes and helped me to realize that I didn't lack skills or experience for these jobs but rather lacked a good technique for showcasing why I was a good fit for each and every role, both on my resume as well as in-person during interviews to clearly show recruiters why I was the best hire for them. While working with Linda, I got myself 8 interviews and received 3 job offers before we even finished her 8-week one-on-one program, giving me the privilege to choose where I wanted to work before I had even finished the course. When I think about where I'm at in my career now, I feel extremely motivated and very confident in my own potential. I feel absolutely ready to take on any upcoming professional challenge. I recommend working with Linda because she will teach you simple yet very effective strategies that really work - strategies that have worked across a wide range of different sectors - while adapting her knowledge and techniques to your own, current situation as well as your own goals to generate the best results specifically for YOU and what YOU are hoping to achieve. If you're hungry for results and you want change, don't wait! Time is precious and results will flow in very quickly!"
"Because of Linda's interview strategies and techniques, I was able to land a brand new job in a location and field I want."
Jocelyn M. Business Ops Manager California, USA
“Before I started working with Linda, I was not getting anyone to respond to my applications. I thought my resume was good enough, but after working with her, I realized how long and boring my old resume was. Not to mention, it was neither concise nor “attention-grabbing”. After I revised my resume using Linda's methods, I received 4 interview calls from recruiters within a month’s time. I’m happy to say I recently accepted a brand new job offer that I’m extremely excited about! My new resume is simple but to the point, so recruiters can clearly see what I can offer in the first 15 seconds. Also, because of Linda’s interview strategies and techniques, I was able to land a brand new job in a location and field I want. I thought I was stuck at a dead end job with no hope of advancement or backup. Now, I feel like I have a future again. I am about to start my new job to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and my co-workers are very envious."
"Anybody feeling nervous about interviews should work with Linda, as she is supportive and knows how to bring the best out of a candidate."
Seong Hyeon L. - Accounting Professional Toronto, ON
“Coming from an undergraduate degree in music, I was faced with a tough challenge securing my first position in accounting. I knew I had to show that I was an excellent communicator in order to successfully change my career path. With Linda, I worked on most frequently asked interview questions, as well as how to approach interviews so that I could sound natural and be able to answer any type of question flawlessly. After working with Linda, I was successful in finding my first position in accounting. I’m happy to be working toward my CPA designation after a career switch from music. Going forward, I know that I will have to go through more interviews in my career, but Linda has really taught me how to continuously improve myself, so that I will be better off throughout my career. Anybody feeling nervous about interviews should work with Linda, as she is supportive and knows how to bring the best out of a candidate."

"While working with Linda and getting the in-depth coaching on my resume, interview and job strategy tactics, I successfully received a job offer that perfectly suited me!"
Adela B. CPA, CMA - Accounting Manager Hamilton, ON
"I met Linda after having struggled through several months of job hunting on my own. After scoping through numerous pages, articles and online resources for free advice on how to successfully land your best job opportunity, I reached a point where I was frustrated and found that the generic advice on the web was NOT helping. Although I was invited for interviews and getting positive feedback from employers, when it came to the final stage, I was still not getting the offers I was interested in. I understood that this situation was working against me, as my confidence was starting to wane. I needed someone from the same background, with a good understanding of the job market in finance and accounting, with good knowledge of the expectations of employers and who could help me figure out what my “missing link” was that stopped me from getting the right opportunity. After discussing my difficulties and struggles with Linda, I quickly realized she was the exact career professional that could help me. In her approach, she listened carefully to understand not only what I thought my challenges were, but also revealed patterns of thinking and behaviours that I weren’t even aware of and realized were working against my goal of landing a great job. Working with her through her career coaching package, I was able to identify the real challenges I was facing and to address them head-on. As a result, I gained a renewed sense of confidence and clarity within myself. While working with Linda and getting the in-depth coaching on my resume, interview and job strategy tactics, I successfully received a job offer that perfectly suited me! Like I mentioned, this was after few months of searching on my own. Does her contribution stop here? No. She also helped me to identify new ways of thinking and being to develop further in my career, professionally and personally as I pursue this role. I highly recommend working with Linda if you feel that you need a professional who can get you to advance in your career, whether you are looking for a new opportunity or to grow in the current one."
"Linda is easily one of the most experienced career coaches out there. She really has a special gift. I was given the best offer I could've imagined. It was EXACTLY what I was searching for."
Jonathan M. - Product Analyst Florida, USA
“Before working with Linda, I was spending lots of time applying, the more I tried, the more rejections I was getting. I was in a dark place. Many recruiters even told me that I had little chance at landing the job I wanted. Linda taught me how to apply to jobs effectively and taught me how to be organized and optimize my application process and write my resume in such a way where it reflects my true talent and potential. Her methods of application and strategy are the best I've seen. She is easily one of the most experienced career coaches out there. She really has a special gift. I was given the best offer I could've imagined. It was EXACTLY what I was searching for. Linda is not only a great career coach, she is also a great life mentor with a lot of positive energy. I recommend working with Linda because she has a unique vision of the job market and how candidates are selected. She will help you put your best foot forward and give you the confidence you need to have a successful job search. I'm now working for a great company and living out my dream, buying and doing the things I love. Eternally grateful for Linda, I am so much happier with my new job."
"Within a few weeks of working with Linda, I landed multiple interviews and was being looked at by large organizations that were not considering me before. Now, fast forward a couple of months and I was being offered MULTIPLE positions that were offering me 20-25% more than my previous salary."
Jonathan S. - Senior Financial Analyst Toronto, ON
“After 1.5 years of job searching and going on 40+ interviews with zero job offers – I was at the LOWEST point in my life. Nothing seemed to be going my way. During this period, I was seeking to make the switch from a small private organization to a large public organization. I had my resume reviewed professionally by four different “experts” and reviewed interview prep courses as well. I networked with over 25+ individuals and still no luck. And then one day I decided to search for a career coach on Google and typed in, “Career Coach for Accountants.” In that instant Linda’s name appeared. After watching her videos, I reached out to see if she could be the right one to help me take my career to the next level. Now, mind you, at that point I had just quit my job the week before, so I was feeling pretty low and was really lacking self-confidence. After our initial one hour session – my mindset just shifted and I was ready to take the next step. Linda helped me FOCUS on what career options I would like and never let me aim lower than I was capable of. She gave me clarity on exactly how to position myself in front of potential employers. She knew what hiring managers were looking for and how I needed to be perceived. She has strong knowledge and insight on how one can effectively develop their personal brand in a competitive marketplace. Within a few weeks of working with Linda, I landed multiple interviews and was being looked at by large organizations that were not considering me before. Now, fast forward a couple of months and I was being offered MULTIPLE positions that were offering me 20-25% more than my previous salary. I am now happily employed in a full-time position with a global company that not only pays higher, but is more challenging and is the right step to further growing my career. Working with Linda has turned out to be the best return on investment so I would strongly recommend her and would do it again."
