Sample Endorsements For Career-Boosting Seminars

“The high turn-out and long waiting list for this event clearly indicated the interest of American Women in Science members in applying to government jobs. Melissa McCartney, president of the DC Chapter commented, 'We sold out the available seats in two days and had to start turning people away because we were at capacity for the room. Clearly this is the type of event our members are looking for!' ”

"Ms. Whiteman trained my interns how to effectively package their credentials so that their applications stand out from the competition. She can do the same for you: the techniques used by Ms. Whiteman will enable you to effectively compete for and land a good job with the federal government. I recommend her book and her trainings to job-seekers of all levels -- from entry level to senior level professionals."

"As an experienced hiring manager, I can tell you that Lily does a great job of explaining how hiring managers think and how to impress them. She is a smart, clever career coach. And because Lily has a wonderful sense of humor, her training sessions are always entertaining as well as enlightening!"

"I used the interviewing techniques that Lily Whiteman taught me, and I was the ONLY applicant passed forward for my second interview for a Program Manager position -- a promotion. At my second interview, I was told that my four interviewers were so impressed with my first interview that they all agreed that I was a perfect fit for the position.

Lily taught me how to prepare for interviews and how to think on my feet during interviews. Thanks to her advice, I gave knowledgeable, energetic answers to agency-specific questions and to substantive programmatic questions. I know for a fact that Lily's seminar helped me land my federal promotion. I have recommended Lily's excellent seminars to my colleagues at the US Mint. I only regret that I did not take Lily's seminars sooner."

"Lily Whiteman took what I perceived to have been a more-than-competent resume and she turned it into an elegant, hard-hitting piece of art in no time at all. I was incredulous at the "before" and "after." She doesn’t miss a thing. She took a look at what I had done, interviewed me with her probing questions and she brought out accomplishments that I didn’t even realize I had! I highly recommend Ms. Whiteman and her techniques."

"Lily Whiteman taught me how to prepare an application that sang out my accomplishments loud and clear. By doing so, she helped me get promoted into a new federal job that involves more interesting work and pays a higher salary. Lily always gets it right -- her methods really work!"

"Lily Whiteman’s book is an essential and welcome guide to anyone who is navigating the wilderness of finding a rewarding and solid career in today’s job market. Her role as my "resume doctor" makes me confident that my name will stand out in the flood of applicants that every opening draws."

- Hil Anderson, Journalist

"Lily Whiteman's advice and tips helped me land a job that was not only one of the first I applied for, but the one that was on the top of my list. Her strategies were more helpful and effective than those offered by the career coaches at my college. She helped prepare me for every step of the way, from fine-tuning my resume to doing well in my interviews."
