Shabaz Salehi:

When I was student, I was living in Texas. And I was looking for an opportunity to move to a bigger city and I started networking and using the portal. And I was able to connect with some alumni here in Los Angeles. I was able to narrow down to the hospital and I applied and finally I was able to get the position.

Blume: One of our most popular features is our resume critique tool. It’s available around the clock to give you instant feedback.

Jennifer Robinson:

The resume tool provides a good opportunity to update your formatting, language that is used. Things to remove, maybe things to update, things to change. It’s always good to get a second opinion.

Blume: You can even tailor your resume to a specific job description or to LinkedIn.

Blume: A lot of our students and grads are also looking for a way to ace that big job interview.  No worries, you can practice with us online.

Sam Song:

Elevator Pitch is this video analysis software that provides immediate data analytics on your speech fillers, your use of eye contact, and your use of hand gestures. This allowed me the chance to look at my interview responses objectively and then to critique what needs to be changed.
