Lauren was exceptional at helping me craft and build my resume and cover letter. She paid great attention to detail and was extremely diligent in meeting all of my needs. I would recommend her to any college student or a seasoned professional in need of a stellar resume builder.
Investor Relations Analyst
Lauren did a great job working with me on overhauling my resumé and LinkedIn. What I appreciated most was her ability to ask incisive questions that got past the jargon, as well as my own preconceived notions about my own experience, to really dig into and reframe what my skills and job history said about me. She listened, questioned when she wasn’t sure about something, helped me reprioritize, and was easy to work with. She challenged me to think a bit differently about my expertise, but also heard my priorities and brought them into the fore. She also showed me how to keep relevant information updated correctly, and helped me rethink the language I use to talk about myself.
Director, Office of Innovation and Data Management
As times have changed in the way people navigate the world of professional opportunities it is critical to understand the proper way to approach your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. I was not naive to think that I knew how to do this on my own so I researched professionals who could provide assistance and guidance. I came across Lauren and am fortunate to have done so. Perhaps the most refreshing and impressive thing about Lauren's approach to her clients is that she has not forgotten that business is about people and relationships. Before embarking on the task, she got to know me and my aspirations and dug into how best to represent me. I came away from the process with outstanding and relevant materials to promote myself to companies; but more importantly I found a life-long collaborator interested in helping me pursue my career objectives. I cannot recommend Lauren highly enough for this type of work and partnership.

Business Development Manager
Lauren helped me bring my resume in to the new millennium. While I'd updated my recent jobs over the years, the basic outline was the same and it was getting too long due to my 'append only' approach. Lauren did an awesome job of steering the document back on course, freshening the style and adding pop that honestly really never would have occurred to me. She was extremely professional, timely in her responses and kept me honest on keeping up my end of the bargain. If you need some help getting your resume on track, Lauren is a great resource to have on your team.

Director of Licensing
Recently I was separated from my company and found myself looking for employment for the first time in 11 years. I updated my resume myself, but was not getting any response. I needed a professional and turned to Lauren from Career Connections NJ to get help. Her rates were very reasonable and the turnaround time was really quick. Within a matter of weeks, I was finally getting responses to my resume, which then led to interviews. I found a new position in only 2 months! I am sure that the changes to my resume and networking advice got me in the door. I truly have to credit Lauren and her amazing work for my becoming gainfully employed so soon again.
