Success Stories from My Clients

See how my career coaching services have helped financial professionals advance their careers

"Mike has been invaluable in my transition from Goldman Sachs to FinTech. I'm now the Chief Accounting Officer at DriveWealth, a pioneering D-round FinTech specializing in fractional equity investing.

Mike's strategic customized plan is well thought out and highly effective. My resume never looked so clean. My LinkedIn profile is fantastic. If you're making a move, speak with Mike."

-Bill B.

"I had multiple offers within 2 weeks of working with Mike on interview preparation. What Mike did so well was to keep me focused on using examples that were appropriate to the question. He only cared about my experiences as related to the jobs I wanted.

I felt really comfortable and I was prepared with answers to the usual and unusual questions. He found out what makes me special and taught me how to weave this 'specialness' into my answers."

-Judi C.

"I love my position with Bank of America and moved from Associate to VP. Trust me, you want a guy who spent 15 years on the Street to represent you. I hired Mike because he knows the Wall Street world inside and out.

My original resume was very technical and did not represent my skills. After he was through with his magic, all my skills were so clear on paper that I felt great. My revised LinkedIn profile attracted so many more hits."

-Perry Reynolds

"Mike provided me with spot-on advice in evaluating different Global IT career options. He determined my worth in the marketplace, helped me negotiate a better offer, and guided me on a clear path. Wow!"

-Amir Tal

"As a young professional transitioning from my first job after college, working with Mike was an incredibly important part of my job search.

 

Mike understands the FinTech world. Both my resume and LinkedIn profile attracted a great deal of attention from recruiters, which ultimately led to my current job. Mike helped me to create my brand and sell me! I'd highly recommend his services."

-Shweta Mahajan

"I got the job as a senior risk manager at Mizuho in NYC and am thrilled. Thank you for your coaching before the interview - I was getting frustrated after being close on a number of other opportunities and with the onset of COVID-19.

 

Your advice and coaching was just the bump, change of perspective, slightly new technique, and encouragement I needed at a difficult time."

-Charles Shiller

"I was looking to quickly get back to a top named Wall Street Bank. After working with Michael, I am now a Director at MUFG Securities.

 

Mike was extremely helpful in aiding me to think strategically about my career. He has a great mind that helped me see the big picture then zoom in on tangible possibilities. He is also part of the select group of coaches from the Columbia Career Coaches Network and he is blessed by Columbia University."

-Marc Lavine

"Within 2 months of working with Mike, I moved from Wall Street to Salesforce. If you need to pivot, he is your guy.

 

I was a very successful sales trader for 20 years. However, the landscape of Wall Street changed, and my next move was not going to be the same role since fewer and fewer exist. Mike and I worked on identifying the different types of jobs and industries that would be a fit."

-Marshall Burroughs

"Mike helped me land my dream job with Google! After 23 years with the same company, I needed a change but didn't know where to start. Mike helped me explore other careers by setting up coffee chats with friendly professionals.

 

We then analyzed those conversations to understand what really appealed to me. We recreated my resume and my LinkedIn profile to promote my value and experience. His patient guidance helped build my confidence throughout the process."

-David Robles

"Michael is a master at interview preparation and helped me pivot from SunTrust to Navy Federal Credit Union with more responsibility.

 

He showed me how to customize my answers to typical and non-typical questions. He taught me that some interview questions have hidden questions. He taught me appropriate answers. He pumped me up and showed me how to dialogue with the interviewer."

-Terri Harris
