D.G., Ann Arbor

"I had the absolute pleasure of working with Damian for career guidance and advising over the course of a month or two in early 2018. We met to discuss my options, and Damian's clear, organized and goal-directed thinking process helped us formulate a plan that would narrow down my options, provide crucial insight to my strengths and weaknesses, and help navigate these treacherous post-grad waters."

M.S., Beverly Hills

"When you hear about your dream job, you want to be sure that every thing you do as part of the search process is absolutely perfect. That's when you need to partner with Damian Zikakis. With his rich professional background, he is able to coach and advise you every step of the way. For me, Damian provided excellent feedback on how to structure my cover letter and resume. He helped me prepare for my interviews and challenged me to think through how to ask strategic questions and what to say when asked by the interviewer to "tell me about yourself." As my search progressed, Damian worked with me on how and when to broach key questions with my prospective employer and how to approach salary negotiation. He gave me the confidence to be my best and I landed the job!"
