Krista’s class was the most real world experience I have gained. She gave me the confidence to use my skills in the right way in a professional work environment, and she’ll teach you everything you need to know to be successful. I owe Krista everything!

So, you're wondering if I think you should take Krista's summer intensive? In a word, yes. In two words, hell yes. I can't recommend it highly enough. Even though you've already taken the three-hour workshop, I think you'll get an incredible amount of value out of it. The longer format allows her to go into much greater depth on each topic, and the individual attention is priceless.

I've put a lot of effort over the years into understanding best practices of the job search, but with Krista, everything clicked. I started networking organically, I stopped applying for jobs I thought would benefit me (even though I knew I'd be miserable), and I realized how my resume (which I was very proud of) wasn't showing me off in my best light. And because Krista got to know me and my work ethic, when an exciting new job opportunity opened up at a company run by one of her best friends, she was able to vouch for my character. I landed a job I love, where I feel creatively and intellectually stimulated, and where I'm valued by my coworkers.

If that sounds like an aberration, it isn't. If you've seen just one of her Got Lists, you know how astounding her her track record is. Trust me, you want Krista on your team! I consider her class to be an essential investment in my future, and I'm so glad I made it. I hope you will, too. Please let me know if I can answer any questions about the course, so you can make an informed decision!
