“Due to Rose’s incredibly helpful advice and commitment to my job search, I was offered a job at my number one choice of employer at a significantly higher salary that I was making before. I sincerely believe I could hot have achieved these results without her.”
Rose was a huge help to me during every stage of my career search process. From thinking about career options, to networking, to resume writing, to the interviewing process, she was always available with helpful advice, strategies, and ideas. Her depth of knowledge and passion for her work are palpable; she truly cares about helping her clients find the best career options possible (and she never stops believing that her clients will achieve success). Rose provided me with multiple resources I would never have found on my own and always had the time for an email, a call, or a face-to-face session whenever I needed to touch base. Due to Rose’s incredibly helpful advice and commitment to my job search, I was offered a job at my number one choice of employer at a significantly higher salary than what I was making before. I sincerely believe I could not have achieved these results without her.

“I achieved my desired result, which was to negotiate for a more senior position at my firm. Rose helped me develop key talking points and coached me on how to approach the negotiation process in a collaborative manner, while retaining a firm stance.”
I hired Rose when I was approaching a promotion conversation at my job. Rose was extremely friendly, listened carefully to my issues, and sent me several helpful materials as well as talking me through her proposed solutions. I achieved my desired result, which was to negotiate for a more senior position at my firm. Rose helped me develop key talking points and coached me on how to approach the negotiation process in a collaborative manner, while retaining a firm stance. It was a very delicate balance to strike, and without the benefit of Rose’s advice, I would not have had the first idea how to enter into such a negotiation without it backfiring! I would definitely recommend Rose’s services to colleagues and friends who are experiencing professional issues or problems they need to work through. She is a wonderful career counselor, especially for young women like myself. I really enjoyed working with her, and am thrilled with the results!

“Everything about my experience working with Rose was fantastic, I have a clear head and a clear direction for my career and most importantly, I am taking steps to make it happen!”
When I hired Rose, I was feeling very lost about where my career was going. I knew I needed to narrow down my options, but I didn’t know exactly how to do that. Rose was extremely easy to talk to, and I felt comfortable opening up to her right away. Even though I am located 1500 miles away, in a different time zone and have a crazy schedule at my job, Rose was able to work around this to help me get to where I needed to be. I loved that she didn’t tell me what direction to go in or what decision I should make. Instead she helped guide me to evaluate my options based on what is most important to me in life, and then from there I could make the decision myself.
The stress of not knowing where my career is going has been very tough for many months and now after working with her I have a clear head and a clear direction, and that has made all parts of my life easier. Through working with Rose I have begun to make steps to change my career. I have been able to narrow down and decide where my career path is going. I would definitely recommend Rose’s services to anybody who is having difficulty deciding where the next step in their career is going to take them. For me, I am in the middle of college and she helped me figure out which direction to go in for a major and a career afterwards, but her services would be extremely helpful to anybody having difficulty even if they have been in the workforce for 20 years. Once you speak with Rose you will have a whole new sense of motivation towards your career and you will be ready to make the necessary changes that will make you feel fulfilled!”

“Rose’s counseling was the very best thing that I did for myself throughout this difficult time and I could not be more pleased with the results. I come away from this experience with a job offer in hand, and a renewed excitement and direction in my career.”
I reached out to Rose because I had just been laid off and wasn’t sure about my career direction. I needed someone who could help me figure out what I really wanted in life as a whole. I needed a career counselor who could help me to conquer my fears, misconceptions and insecurities. I really needed someone who could help me dig deep and get me to ask myself the right questions. Rose’s counseling was the very best thing that I did for myself throughout this difficult time and I could not be more pleased with the results.
Rose really “gets it.” She gets what it is like to be a woman in the workplace, trying to navigate the waters successfully because she’s been through it herself. Rose makes me feel so comfortable that I have felt comfortable asking her every single question, even the ones I’d otherwise feel too insecure to ask my peers. The methods that Rose uses are quite analytical, which is also a reason why I loved working with her. The assignments she gave me were targeted precisely to help me clarify what I wanted in life and in my career. She obviously spent quite a bit of time reading what I had written for these various assignments and pointing out patterns and helping me decipher what they meant. She also coached me along to make sure I wasn’t slacking off in my job search, and is still there for me via email if a quick question pops up. I trust her advice implicitly.
I come away from this experience with a job offer in hand, a renewed excitement and direction in my career, and a brand new arsenal of “tricks of the trade” in terms of successfully interviewing and negotiating for a job. In only four sessions, she helped me more so than two years of career counseling at a fancy business school! I recommend her whole-heartedly and plan on keeping her in my life for as long as I’m a working woman.

“Rose genuinely believes that every woman has the potential to succeed, and she makes you believe it too.”
Rose is an exceptional career coach, with in-depth knowledge of every phase of the job search process. In the beginning, Rose helped me define exactly what I want to do, which is community engagement in the arts. Once I had defined my goal, Rose helped me set up a plan so I could pursue it. Rose taught me to get positive results from informational interviews. At first, I was shy about contacting perfect strangers. Rose showed me how to reach out to people so they would respond, and most of them have. She also taught me how to do an informational interview effectively, and the results have been positive. Throughout each step of my job search, Rose has been available for questions and her advice is spot-on and encouraging. In this sense, Rose really lives up to the term coach. When you begin to doubt yourself, she believes in you, and provides you with the most amazingly effective job search advice. Rose genuinely believes that every woman has the potential to succeed, and she makes you believe it too.

“It was such a relief to find someone who not only believes it’s possible to have a job that you’re excited to show up to — she knows how to get you there.”
When I contacted Rose, I was at the nadir of career searching: I had been in my own head for so long that every trail I went down brought me back to the same disgruntling conclusions, the most effacing being that my skills, experience, and interests were so desultory that I would be completely unemployable, forever.
Of course, this was ridiculous, and Rose was the first one to call it out. It’s kind of like this: Before I started working with Rose, it felt like I was putting together a puzzle, except the pieces didn’t really fit and I was jamming them together because they were all sky-colored or something; in our sessions, we broke up the ill-fitting segments, reassessed the pieces, and started building sections that worked for real. Rose is incredibly insightful, and she helped me tease apart some of the false conclusions I had concocted. I can be pretty wily, so I really appreciate that Rose was able to bring perspective, fresh ideas, and a reality check to my process.
I have to say though, that the most impressive part of my sessions with Rose was how results and action oriented they were. Before working with Rose, I was concerned that an attempt at career counseling would yield a bunch of fuzzy generalities and half-baked aphorisms. I was delighted to find that our sessions were extremely focused, and while the initial meetings cast a wide net, the later ones were unequivocal in addressing the details. My resume is tighter than it’s ever been, my cover letters received a full (and much needed) revamp, and my professional goals feel much better tuned to my personal perspective. Oh yeah, (and I know I’m just part of the Greek chorus on this one but) while we were working together, I was hired to work an incredible job in Antarctica. Just saying.
Finally, and maybe most importantly, working with Rose was a total pleasure, mostly because she’s fantastic, but enthusiastic, supportive, super smart don’t hurt either. She’s flexible with scheduling, generous with time, and totally on top of it. It was such a relief to find someone who not only believes it’s possible to have a job that you’re excited to show up to — she knows how to get you there.

I worked for a company where my previous industry experience and interpersonal skills were under appreciated. After a year and a half my confidence was torn down and the prospect of finding a new job seemed daunting. Speaking with a friend of mine that recently found a new job, I was introduced to the idea of career consulting. I then reached out to Rose Keating. Rose helped me regain my confidence and courage to start the job hunt. We worked together to revamp my resume and tailor it specifically for the position and industry I work within. Rose assisted me in converting my resume from a large listing of tasks to strong bullet point power statements highlighting the
skills and value I brought to the company.
Within days of posting my new resume on job search engines I was contacted by a recruiter. Within two weeks I was working with over a dozen recruiters and was being represented with potential employers for over 20 positions. I landed the perfect position within two months! I received a promotion, my salary almost doubled, I have more vacation time, and I am in a place where I feel appreciated and respected for what I have to offer. Contacting Rose was the best thing I have done for myself in terms of a career move. I cannot express enough how much more confident and competent I felt and appeared to potential employers after working with Rose and getting the advice I needed to truly succeed in my job hunt.

“Under Rose’s guidance I bolstered my professional profile, and within weeks I secured two new clients.”

Moreover, Rose was highly responsive and prioritized which changes to make immediately, knowing I had an upcoming deadline.
Rose is clearly driven by a passion for helping people identify and achieve their career goals, and her enthusiasm is contagious. Under Rose’s guidance I bolstered my professional profile, and within weeks I secured two new clients. I highly recommend Rose, and look forward to working with her again in the future.
