Boulder >Nina Friedman Career Svc
I do not recommend!.
I know the following is long but please take a minute before wasting your time and money
I met with Nina prior to an interview. Prior to our session I discussed with her on the phone my need to have someone overlook my resume and practice with interviewing skills. I sent her my resume prior to our session via email. She asked that I park on an adjoining street in subzero weather in a neighborhood where the sidewalks were icy. When I arrived I realized she had parking in front of her house (she does not note that this is her home and not an office on her webpage). I knocked on the door, Nina answered the door looking nothing like the picture on her webpage. She introduced me to “Pus-Pus” her cat. Again, I would have liked to known this since I have an allergy to cats. She directed me to her basement where she told me she would be right back. It was 0731, our session was to begin at 0730. She came back with tea minutes later. In 1.75 hours she gave me one legitimate suggestion: write down 15 adjectives/adverbs that reflect my personality and/or work ethic and sprinkle these words into the interview. As the session ended and I was annoyed with Pus-Pus meowing outside her “office” door disrupting our session she informed me “I spent 45 minutes on your resume last night. I get paid $150 per hour so I will need more than $300”. She waited until I was leaving, not when she asked me to email her my resume, or when I got to her “office” or as we began our session…but as I was literally writing the check out for the agreed upon $300 that she wanted an additional $112.5 for her time to look over my resume.
As I left her “office”/home I was annoyed that I had been scammed—well, maybe I wasn’t annoyed until after I got safely back to my car in the -5 degree weather and icy sidewalks. To boot, Nina knew my interview was on a particularly day the following week and she never followed up or expressed concern with hearing how my interview went.
I write this because I wish desperately someone else had given me information with regards to Nina’s services prior to my session.
