I reached out to Akilah for an Interview Consultation for an upcoming position that I was interested in. This was going to be lateral move in the company that I’ve been with for over 10 years. I assumed (wrongly) that I wasn’t worthy of more and that this company already knew me. After sitting with Akilah for an hour I could not have been more wrong about myself, my abilities and my gifts that I had to offer. I was able to set myself apart with confidence. After being asked to take the position I not only got what I asked for, but they promoted me above the intended role. Thank you Akilah for giving me the ability to believe that my worth is not defined by others!
Akilah did an amazing job helping me tell my story through. She took the time to ask detailed questions about my career journey and what I would like to do next. She streamlined my information so that it included important facts employers needed to know. I am grateful for her guidance. She went above and beyond to make sure I landed a new position as a Sr. Human Resource Business Partner!
I had just transitioned to a new role before I started working with Career Lemonade. I really wanted to gain clarity on what inspired me in my field and how that could be leveraged to identify my strengths, values, and talents. Career coaching with Akilah is truly a partnership. She listened with intent and care and asked meaningful questions that tugged at my childhood. The assignments I completed, realigned me to what mattered professionally as well as personally. I realized that my achievements, the way I showed up and engage others was impactful regardless of the magnitude. Akilah focused on the spoken and unspoken in our coaching conversations. Career Lemonade helped me to realign my aspirations in my current role, gain a better understanding on what I want to do in the future, as well as figure out what I can start now!
Working with Akilah and Career Lemonade was an excellent experience, during our meetings we went through all my past and present experience and she was able to catch important information about my performance to build and improve my LinkedIn profile. Akilah’s commitment and flexibility was great, she was passionate and caring. She coached me and helped me to value and recognize my experience. After her service, I had more interviews and landed a new role in Human Resources. I really appreciate her work and I highly recommend Career Lemonade services.
I hired Akilah and Career Lemonade to help me update my resume and cover letter, but what I got was so much more! Akilah helped me see (in myself) what I couldn’t see – she took my experience and skill set and made them shine on paper. Akilah not only enhanced the language in my resume to highlight my talents, but also helped remind me of my value and worth. This boosted my confidence and shifted how I describe and talk about myself and my accomplishments. In addition, the Interview Consultation with Akilah was invaluable. Within a couple of weeks, I had several rounds of interviews and received the job offer. I truly believe that working with Akilah and Career Lemonade is what helped me land my new job. I can’t say enough great things about the work she does to help others in their career journey.
