7/10/2019 Update: The program has officially ended, but there will also be a new (fresh) start for myself. In the near three to four months of being under Teresa’s mentorship, it is truly the best educational experience I’ve had. Clearly, everything that was covered through the program isn’t taught in school. Teresa is simply a craftswoman that undeniably tailors this soul searching program to make sure the student gets full clarity of what they should passionately go after.
I can guarantee that even if, by the end of the program, an individual isn’t 100% sure about what they are willing to chase after… it will be at least 85%. There is no single takeaway that I could think of.
No spoiler alerts here! Bottom line is this: if YOU feel stuck, unsure, unmotivated, stagnant… unhappy with your current role and whatever industry you’re in, I urge you to reach out to Teresa. There is absolutely no way that this program won’t be beneficial in one way or another. Life can sometimes move too quickly and too often we forget to take care of ourselves. It’s not about being born into this world, getting an education, become married, and grow old. There is so much more than just that!
Teresa, I know I sound like a broken record, but I sincerely cannot thank you enough for these past several months. Thank you as well for sharing your personal and professional growth - inspiring at the very least!
It's impossible where to begin in how I'd describe Teresa as a (ongoing) career coach. tl;dr She is basically the Mohammed Ali of career coaching services.
I accidentally came across the life & career coaching programs when I signed up for LinkedIn's premium service as a trial. Coincidentally, Teresa appeared on my results page for both programs! Prior to that though, I already completed a phone consultation with her. From the short, but comprehensive chat that we had, I already knew in my gut that I would want to select her as my coach. Currently, I'm somewhat in the early-mid stages of the program... and if it were to stop right at this point, I would feel so accomplished with what has been done so far. There are people who have worked their way up to having a talent and then there are those who are naturally born with that talent. Without question, Teresa is the latter. She is similar to a player's coach, because she does beyond an incredible job of mentoring but being able to see eye-to-eye with her "player". It didn't take long for me to treat her more as a close friend rather than a coach. Make no mistake though! The overall structure of her program and assignments will unquestionably make anyone think far much deeper about themselves.
In no way shape or form do I work for Teresa, but I can unequivocally attest that she is one, if not the best, career coaches out there. I cannot thank her enough for what I've experienced so far because the kind of "discovery" I've come across is priceless beyond any means.
Teresa came at the time that I needed guidance the most. My sister, also a previous client of Teresa, referred her to me during the period when I was really lost. At first, I was a little skeptical as to how much this program could help me identify my tailor-made career but after the first call with Teresa, I knew I can trust her, and so I gave this program a shot. Looking back three months after, I can proudly say that it’s the best decision I’ve ever made!
In the past three months, Teresa provided me with clarity, encouragement, and guidance to figure out my career path. She helped me see my strengths and weaknesses, and the possibilities I have for my future path. Her assignments were really well planned out and guided me through a series of deep self-exploratory. During our calls, she would always ask thought-provoking questions, pinpoint where you’re stuck, and provide new perspectives to overcome your insecurities. Teresa genuinely cares about her clients and wants to help them grow and succeed. What I love about Teresa is her empathy to understand her client’s emotions and current situations. She not only celebrates the small steps and big improvements with you but also provides you a safe space to be vulnerable. Her skills in coaching and seeing the potential in you are phenomenal! I would recommend her to anyone- without any hesitation!
Thank you again, Teresa! I would not have gotten to where I am today, feeling confident and ready to step foot into the new path, without your guidance.
I highly recommend working with Teresa!! Besides her thorough and detailed program, she is understanding, attentive, supportive, and incredibly caring. I came to Teresa having already done a lot of excavating of myself and going down paths of big questions, but Teresa helped me consolidate those wandering paths, dig deeper than previously, ask questions I hadn't thought to, and she directed me to resources and tools I had never thought of. Having Teresa to hold me accountable was exactly what I needed. If I did it all over again, I would have started with Teresa sooner.
I cannot recommend PathUp highly enough! Teresa is an amazing career coach and has come up with an excellent program that really works! I completely trusted Teresa and the career coaching process and I'm SO glad that I did. She helped me identify a new career path that I feel excited about and helped me find the confidence to move forward. One of the best things I've ever done for myself!
I worked with Teresa from March 2020-June 2020 and can speak very highly of my experience! I was terrified to be searching for a job in the middle of a global pandemic and US recession, but after prepping with Teresa, I was able to land a job I'm beyond excited about at a company that is a fantastic fit, with a salary that exceeded my expectations. Her interview prep helped me the most, having me rehearse and practice answering new questions on my toes while always echoing back to the strategies we had worked through. Thanks so much Teresa! I highly recommend her for job searchers!
After a decade of doing a job that did not bring me satisfaction I started looking for a change but didn't know how to find that satisfaction in a career. Working in my previous career left me drained and while aspects of the work were fun, I wanted something else to match with my interests and to help people. Working with Teresa and her course work was enlightening and opened my eyes to many more careers and interest that I had not thought of before. The materials helped me understand what I needed in a career and guided me to assess different career options that made sense for me. After about 2 months I finally had the career that excites me and I had a plan on how to get it. I'm excited and know what I need to do to get where I want to be. It'll be a long road to change my trajectory but I'm looking forward to this change. Thank you Teresa for helping me find my career path!
Teresa is AMAZING. She was an integral part of my interview preparation process and contributed directly to my success. I decided to shift my career from finance to technology. I have been working in finance for most of my professional career and I lacked extensive interview experience. Teresa helped me discover my strengths and craft my pitch/story based on my experience. Her coaching sessions gave me the confidence to perform well during my interview rounds. Her approach and style of coaching enabled me to achieve success. I was offered the job I was prepping for and couldn't have done it without Teresa!
The career coaching program is a fantastic framework which questioned and guided me to thoroughly reflect on myself about how I am really thinking and feeling. It gives me a clear boundary about what I am good at, what I cannot bear and what options I can explore, thus leading me to what I should do next. After finishing this two months thinking process, I completely refreshed my understanding about what I want to achieve in my life and figured out a feasible plan. I truly believe that Teresa offers genuine help to people like me who are struggling to find a purpose.
Director, Patient Care Services
I'm so thankful for Teresa, I just didn't know how to interview, it had been over 9 years since I interviewed for a job. Teresa was patient with me and outlined how to address questions and to highlight my experience within the job description, excellent teaching. I finally landed a position in an organization that I had been trying to get into for over 5 years. I highly recommend PathUp Career Coaching to anyone who is out of the practice of interviewing and who have bought into the stigma that it's hard for a woman to land a position over 50 let alone almost 60. Thanks again Teresa
Career coaching was never something I'd consider - until I stumbled upon Teresa. Now I don't even hesitate to refer Teresa to people that are going through the job search process.
From the very first consultation with Teresa, it was clear to me that she has a natural talent of pinpointing not only the my strengths and accomplishments, but also identify the important qualities for the field I wanted to go into. She is also very good at uncovering my doubts and insecurities, and helped me work through them. She provided me with so much clarity and guidance, as well as how to package my experience, and recommended ways to improve as a candidate that no one else really thought of.
She is extremely organized and articulate, and knew how to ask the right questions to help me figure out what I was good at, and what I needed to work on. From our sessions I can tell that she genuinely cares about her clients and wants them to find fulfillment in their careers. I wasn't even halfway through her program when I landed a job that checked all of my boxes!
Thank you again Teresa, and I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone that is lost in their career, or just need a little push in getting that final offer.
I highly recommend Teresa! I hired Teresa after a failed interview for a job I thought I had in the bag. Teresa worked with me to update my resume and cover letter, providing me with invaluable templates and feedback. She also helped me strategize my job search. I landed an interview with a target company and aced the interview after two sessions of interview prep with Teresa. The interview prep sessions were challenging for me and so helpful! It illuminated my blind spots and was truly invaluable in my preparation.
I was actually brought in at a HIGHER level than what I applied for! $$$ :) I am super grateful to Teresa for her kind and compassionate yet direct and thorough approach. She has exceeded my expectations. Don't hesitate to work with her!
I highly recommend working with Teresa. She is a wonderful coach and helped me figure out a career field that I'd like to pivot into, which during a global pandemic is no easy task. She helped me identify my strengths and allowed me to realize things about myself that I would have never considered when looking for a new professional career. If you're not satisfied in your current career path and are looking to make a change, I can't recommend Teresa enough. It felt like she was genuinely interested in making sure that I found the best possible career path for myself.
Teresa is an incredible career coach and goes the extra mile to dig into the root causes of a potential career moves, areas of concern, frustrations, internal passion, fire, and desire. Teresa has an excellent way to bring out the best in you and unlock potential that you didn’t know existed. She is extremely motivating, encouraging, and wants to make sure you are seeing a “clear picture” at the end of her program. She is responsive, punctual and anyone considering career coaching...look no further! Thanks Teresa! : )
Teresa is an amazing coach and helped me figure out my career path. After three months of the Career for Me program, I feel way more confident about my career choice and my personal strengths. The 1:1 coaching we had was really awesome and made me realize things about myself that has helped me a lot along the way of finding a new career. What I thought was my weakness is actually a strength. I highly recommend Teresa if you're looking for a career coach!
My experience working with Teresa was life changing. I went straight into graduate school after undergrad and was extremely overwhelmed and terrified for life after school. Teresa helped me navigate all the experience that I had accumulated in college and figure out a way to present it to employers to best market my talents and abilities. Before working with Teresa, I felt very insecure and scared regarding my future. I watched all of my peers get jobs straight out of college, while I was getting denied every single day and watching my efforts go to waste. After 2 or 3 sessions, I began getting interviews from companies and eventually got hired into a company that I am extremely honored and blessed to be working for. Teresa was able to help me transform my resume from an unimpressive piece of paper into something that I am proud to distribute to people. We worked on everything from my resume and cover letter, to interviewing techniques and salary negotiation. Teresa helped set me up for success, because after 2-3 days of applying for jobs, I ended up getting selected for multiple interviews. Each week that we met, I had progress within my job hunt and after week 4, I had signed a contract with a company. I wouldn't be where I am without Teresa.
The Career For Me program brought me so much clarity and realization. Throughout this program, I learned how to pinpoint my unique set of strengths and passions. We even went deeper and uncovered hidden doubts and fears that I did not know was preventing me from reaching my potential. This career program changed my perspective around what I actually want out of life and what I am truly passionate for. Teresa is very passionate about helping others find the right career path. She will push you to find your potential. Her unique coaching skills helped me realize what career path would bring me the most fulfillment in life. I am now feeling more ready and confident than ever to go out and start pursuing my career. Thank you Teresa, your passion and empathy never goes unnoticed!
Teresa is a fantastic career coach! I've worked with her when I was figuring out the next step in my career after having a baby. I signed up for the Career Clarity + Job Search Program, and we had 1:1 sessions throughout ten weeks. She is very thoughtful, always on point, and excellent at connecting the dots about my past, present, and future. Her lessons are also very eye-opening! They helped me deep dive into who I am as a person, understand my strengths, passions, and values, and incorporate them in my next move. I'm so happy that I worked with Teresa and followed her guidance. If you're feeling lost or if you need any help career-wise, I highly recommend her!
Teresa was great at being responsive right at the time I needed it. We prepped, mock interviewed and I ended up getting the job!!
Thanks for all the practice and specialized pointers! Your aid was very valuable and I would recommend her services to anyone looking for career guidance.
Teresa played a huge role in helping me land a job. I was having trouble getting past the initial call with my interviews, and I knew I needed help. Teresa worked with me on showcasing my relevant experience thoughtfully and succinctly. Most importantly, she helped me find the confidence to express myself in a way that promotes my strengths, and not shy away from talking about my accomplishments.
Right off the bat, I could tell that she’s an expert in career coaching. She’s extremely organized and effective in communicating and teaching the kind of tools that work well for any particular situation. I learned a lot of frameworks that not only apply to interviewing, but to public speaking in general.
I highly recommend her if you ever need to find the confidence to navigate the grueling job search process. She’s a delight to work with!
I was unexpectedly put out of work due to the pandemic, so I was not ready to be back on the market looking for a new job. At first, I was discouraged because I wasn't getting requests for interviews after I put in hours of work revising and updating my resume. I applied to so many jobs that led to dead ends so I reached out to Teresa.
Teresa was the fresh pair of eyes that I needed for my resume and the voice of guidance to achieve better results in my job search. Not only did she help me revise my resume so that it did a better job of showcasing my talents and wouldn't get overlooked by recruiters, but she also helped me understand my own approach to job searching and got me thinking about what career path I really wanted to take.
Less than two weeks after she helped me revise my resume, with some back and forth revisions and getting my base resume established, I got a job interview, which turned into a job offer. With Teresa's help, I am now back in the workforce in a position that I truly enjoy and with confidence that when I find myself in a position looking for a new job or career change, Teresa will be there to help if I reach out.
Teresa truly understands the landscape of job searching and what recruiters look for, and knows how to turn that knowledge into effective direction and useful advice to help people achieve their professional goals. No judgment, no fluff, no beating around the bush; just objective counseling and guidance.
I was nervous about signing up for Career Coaching but after my consultation with Teresa, I felt at ease. She has a special gift of hearing the words you're not directly saying and making sense of your unique situation. I signed up for the "Career Fulfillment" program that included an online course called "Career Clarity" and (3) 1:1 sessions with Teresa. This was the best combo for me and the 1:1 sessions were so valuable! I appreciated the holistic approach to career coaching and her understanding that several other aspects of your life and your career go hand and hand. I can't say enough good things about Teresa & PathUp. Thank you a million!
I started working with Teresa when I was in the midst of a job search that felt fruitless and intimidating, and she was an absolute lifesaver! Having been in school full-time for the last seven years consecutively, I felt overwhelmed when it came time to update my resume/cover letter and effectively prepare for interviews. In our first meeting, Teresa and I went through my resume, and she suggested small but impactful changes to both its formatting and content. In our subsequent meetings, she was able to guide me in brainstorming examples of past successes to use in cover letters and interviews, and how said examples could be utilized to highlight my strengths. Overall, Teresa was instrumental in not only increasing my confidence as I went through the job search process but also in me and the validity of my past professional and educational accomplishments. Ultimately with her help and expertise, I was able to land a job in my field that is a perfect fit! She is extremely kind and patient, and clearly has a passion for the work she does. I am so grateful for all of her help, and will absolutely seek her out with any future career coaching needs.
I would highly recommend Teresa and PathUp to anybody who is looking for a truly comprehensive, personalized, efficient (and fun!) career coaching experience. Thank you Teresa, you're the best!
I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Teresa for the Career Career Clarity Course. I had been in my current career for 7 years and was unsure if I wanted to switch out. I had two goals in mind, do I want to switch out of my career? And if so, which career would I want to do. I had a descent idea in mind of what I wanted to do but I wanted to be sure. I am very happy that I decided to go through with the program. It provided me with the sense of clarity and focus that I had wanted. She asked the important questions that I either was afraid to ask, or had no idea that they were important to ask. She helped sort through my thoughts to help land me with a sense of confidence and vision for what I wanted in the future. I have tools now for the rest of my career journey.
Working with Teresa these last few months has been life changing. I signed up for career coaching but got much more than just perspective on my career. I've been feeling uneasy for a decade because something didn't feel right in my career. I've had a few promotions and changes at work, thinking it would lead me closer to being fulfilled, but I still felt like something was missing. Finally I decided that I needed help. Teresa asked the right questions to help me assess what I truly wanted for my career and life. Her ability to see so much more than what's at the surface allowed me to be honest with myself about my goals. There is a lot of work involved in between our sessions but it has helped me reevaluate and analyze my career history and goals. I have a clear path forward, something I am actually excited about. Thank you, Teresa! I am thankful for your guidance, insight, and support along the way.
I really can't recommend Teresa enough. I've basically been in the same career for most of my adult life and felt stuck. I wasn't sure which direction to go, and had lost hope that I'd ever figure out what career was right for me. After researching various career coaches, I came across Teresa and her Career Clarity program. Immediately following our initial consultation, I knew she was the right career coach for me. She is so incredibly insightful and patient. Her questions were very thought-provoking and helped me to learn so much about myself. And, most importantly, helped me determine a career path that's a much better fit for me. My only regret is that I didn't start working with Teresa sooner!
Director of Sales Enablement
Update 11/7/2020: Success! I just accepted an offer for a role that fit everything I was looking for next in my career journey with Teresa's support and coaching. Thanks Teresa!
Feeling my career wasn’t where I wanted it to be and after searching through the hundreds of career coaches, finding Teresa was exciting! Her impressive experience and thoughtful approach were the perfect fit for the insight and guidance I needed. She immediately knew my strategy needed an expert’s perspective and added tips to help me think differently. As a frustrated job seeker, I felt she instilled the confidence needed to continue my career journey and implement the necessary shift in my approach. Teresa combines industry knowledge with thought provoking questions and genuine empathy while still holding you accountable, which as a result leaves you feeling truly empowered.
I had been working in the hospitality industry my whole adult life when covid shut down my present workplace. I'd always known that I wanted to leave the industry and get myself into a career I really loved and felt fulfilled by. I found Teresa's program at the perfect time to really tackle this challenge.
Her program consists of 8 lessons with attached homework (writing, brainstorming, interviewing exercises) along with three meetings with Teresa as well (google meets for the sake of the pandemic). As someone who was very in touch with what my strengths and skills are, I was blown away to by Teresa's insights into areas that I thought I had a grasp on.
I had a long period of mental blockage where I really struggled to identify possible careers for me, even though I clearly knew the fields I was interested in. During this time, Teresa was extremely patient with me as we tried to uncover why I was feeling challenged. She even got on the phone with me outside of the sessions to talk through the problem with me.
The concepts and awareness I uncovered about myself and my future career paths were extremely enlightening and I know now exactly what I should be working on to head toward my future goals. Whether you are struggling or just need more guidance during a career change, I highly recommend going through Teresa's career counseling program. You definitely need to dedicate time and introspection to the process, but I think the results will be worth it.
I worked with Teresa on the Career Clarity Elite Package after twelve years with the same nonprofit organization. I'd found myself in a position at work where I was constantly being assigned new projects and responsibilities, and I never had a chance to stop and think about what I actually want to do versus what I feel like I should be doing. Teresa is a skilled coach who challenged me to listen to my own inner voice and move past the "shoulds" and fears, and she does it all with warmth and encouragement. She honestly provided more insight into myself and some of my thought patterns than I've received from some therapists in the past! I would highly recommend her service to anyone who is committed to finding a more satisfying career path and wants a skilled, knowledgeable, and kind guide on that journey.
I loved working with Teresa! We had five 1-on-1 coaching sessions and long story short, I landed the job that I wanted. I'm 15 years into my career and with my background, felt confident about my job search... until I started receiving interviews but no offers. I knew that I needed help. Immediately in our first appointment, Teresa gave insightful feedback about my interview responses. She is skilled at highlighting your strengths and accomplishments and shows you how to phrase your experiences in a modest yet confident way. She also builds up confidence in you so you're ready. Her ability to conduct mock interviews and show you how to convey your skills is truly top-notch. I can't recommend her enough and I have already shared her info with friends and family. If you're thinking you need job search help, I highly recommend Teresa!
Teresa is an exceptional career coach. Her lessons and workbooks were very helpful in narrowing down the exact career that was right for me. She's especially good at asking the right questions, and getting down to the core of what's holding you back from making the career switch. During our calls she would always ask deeper questions because she wanted me to really understand myself. She's always very quick to respond with any questions I had and is always very thoughtful in her responses. I loved her openness and excitement for helping others find their career. She genuinely wishes everybody finds the perfect career.
I came to Teresa feeling lost in what I wanted to do with my career. I'm someone who wants to help people and I wasn't finding that in my current role. Teresa was insightful and asked the right questions to help me gain that clarity. Her homework assignments were also eye opening for me to really see my strengths and what I needed in a job. I thought our coaching sessions made a difference and have decided that I will need to plan for a larger career change. I know it's not easy from here, but I am excited that I will truly enjoy my career long-term. Thank you for the coaching Teresa.
Wow! I can't say enough great things about Teresa as a coach. I initially came to Teresa at PathUp because I was seeking clarity on my career direction. We discussed things that I didn't even know were important to me in my career. She helped me clarify my skills and values and most importantly, showed me how to translate that into a viable career. Teresa is encouraging and thoughtful, and incredibly passionate about the work she does. She can quickly assess your strengths and your deepest desires while remaining practical about your career. If you are wondering what you want to do with your career or just feeling confused, I wholeheartedly recommend you reach out to her. Put in the work and you will see the results!
Changing your career could be daunting and a scary task but Teresa's guidance helps make it such a rewarding journey. Teresa had a genuine interest in my personal goals. Her course helped guide me in the right direction and pinpoint what I truly wanted. Furthermore, her expertise allows her to see things that I wouldn't have been able to see myself. You can tell she truly loves helping people and can resonate with the feelings you go through. Teresa pushed me to really search for my ambitions, goals, and strengths. For me it was hard to define those. Although, teresa gives you different strategies and tasks to help you figure this out. After all the hard work and self-reflection, I was able to clearly identify my strengths, passions, and goals and help correlate that to a new career. Teresa was motivating and helped me recognize that our careers paths aren't always linear and have many ups and downs. The knowledge I gained about myself and career searching will be useful to me throughout my life. I was so happy to have someone who genuinely cared about my future. I would recommend anyone desiring a change in their career to the career fulfillment program.

Teresa is fantastic! I was preparing for a couple of job interviews and was interested in working on my interview skills. I was extremely nervous about sharing my weaknesses when it came to interviewing but Teresa was very encouraging and helped put my nerves at ease. I ended up doing pretty well in both interviews I was prepping for. Great news, I was offered a promotion with my current job after doing well in the interview process and was offered substantially more (25k+) than what I had been so everything turned out better than I'd hope. I want to thank Teresa again for her help with my resume, interview prep and for just easing my nerves.
The Career for Me program helped me to really understand what I was looking for in a career that I wanted to pursue and to work towards. If I had to sum up my experience of this program in one word it would be "Eye-opening." I felt that as I progressed through each lesson, I was learning more and more about myself, about my strengths, passions, my fears, and even hidden self-limiting beliefs (learn about what this is in lesson 7!). I've learned to reframe how I think about myself, what my strengths and passions are (and even overcame many doubts and fears). I've gained so much more confidence to pursue the career that I believe is right for me. I no longer feel any doubt in my abilities and so excited for what's to come! Thank you Teresa for your guidance, coaching, for your thoughtfulness and flexibility!
I cannot say enough good things about Teresa and all the support she provided me throughout the job search process. I came to Teresa after months of job searching with little progress. Teresa helped me rework my resume and build compelling cover letters for my job applications. After working with Teresa, I secured several interviews and eventually landed my dream job after only four sessions with her. She also helped me prep for interviews and gave me the tools and tips to be successful throughout the interview process. I can confidently say Teresa's work helped me stand out as a candidate, and her guidance is the reason I finally landed my dream job. You will not regret working with her!
I contacted Teresa when I wanted to change careers but I had no idea how. I'm glad I did, because she really helped me sharpen my focus and gave me the kick in the pants I needed to succeed. Her interview coaching was perfect and I ended up breezing through 5 interviews and getting a new job in exactly the field I wanted with a 50% bump in pay! Thanks Teresa!
The Career Clarity program helped me find my new career in UX. Teresa's ability to analyze a situation and current circumstances to solve problems is uncanny. Her empathy radar is finely-tuned and will go out of her way to make sure you are happy with where you are in life. Her happiness comes from her passionate contribution to seeing others happy. She has such a strong desire to help people along their journey to reach their point of success that I felt compelled to give it my all as she has for me and I cannot thank her enough for her support in my journey. During my journey to a career change, she ensured I was on the track to what I defined as success. She asks tough questions in a judgement free environment where I can comfortably answer. Whether it is analyzing my relationships and defining what I currently want in life or finding ways to incorporate my passion into my career, she's been there to convert my hesitant thoughts to one of confidence. I have no doubt she will contribute her passionate efforts to anyone that is also considering a career change.
If you're looking for a career coach, I highly recommend Teresa at PathUp! Before working with Teresa, I had interviews but no offers. I would make it to the final round but would then get that rejection email. I knew I needed a career coach, so enter Teresa. I found her after some research and decided to work with her because of her website reviews. Our mock interviews were incredibly helpful and guided me to see my blind spots. Teresa taught me how to sell myself without coming off like I was bragging. She also helped me pick the right examples for the hard interview questions. I ended up landing two offers around the same time, one of which was at a dream tech company of mine! Thank you Teresa for your coaching! I couldn't have done it without you. Your insight has been truly invaluable and I feel confident that I have the knowledge for my future job searches. If you're looking for a career coach, don't hesitate to work with Teresa!
Teresa's course was extremely helpful! Between the thought provoking guided lessons and the one-on-one career insight meetings I learned a lot about myself and what I wanted in a career. By the end of the course I felt more confident about my strengths and ready to go out and pursue my passions! Thanks, Teresa!
Going into it I didn't know what to expect from a career counselor but I knew that I needed guidance and re-alignment on my career goals. Right from the beginning I immediately loved the format of the program with the workbooks to fill out as well as the online meeting sessions. I think it's worth having the online portion as well as the 3 sessions with Teresa, she's excellent at asking the right questions about my responses in the online portion and loves to dive into my answers to help me realize how that could be hindering my career growth and how to adjust for the better! She helped me learn a lot about myself that I think is worth getting a professional opinion on. Overall, I wanted to not only find guidance on what my next steps should be for my career but also someone to keep me accountable in this journey. She really helped me move back to the driver's seat of my career and life and helped me lay out a plan to pursue. She's also very candid and nice, I felt very comfortable sharing personal thoughts and feelings about how I was feeling about my current work experience and what I wanted to change. I'd recommend!
If you’re feeling at all uncertain or under-prepared during your job search, I can’t recommend Teresa’s services more. After I lost my job, I struggled to find a new position for over a year - despite having years of professional experience. Received countless rejections without even an interview. I was really floundering and had no idea what I was even doing wrong.
When I found PathUp, I was primarily hoping to get feedback on my resume. What Teresa offered was a lot more comprehensive: advice on how to structure a job search, how to make connections, and how to prepare for interviews when I finally started getting a second look. Even with just three sessions, I felt vastly better equipped to find a job. Also happy to report that I’ve already received an offer! Definitely worth your time.
I opted for 1:1 coaching with Teresa for help with resume and cover letter writing. She is incredibly thoughtful and helped hold me accountable to my goals. Applying to jobs is overwhelming, but Teresa helped me build confidence with personalized critiques and clear best practices. Teresa is generous and sincere in her desire to help her clients overcome whatever blocks are in their way. Her career expertise is invaluable, but what makes her stand apart is that she has a big heart and is genuinely invested in seeing you succeed.
Teresa is a superstar! I had a last minute interview scheduled and needed some prep/guidance from PathUp. Not only did she book me while on vacation, since my interview was super last minute, but this career angel gave me clear direction on what worked and didn't work during our mock interview. Happy to announce that I got the job! I will definitely recommend this company to everyone needing interview support and the other great services they offer.
Teresa gave great guidance on helping me discover my strengths. Her program to find a new career path is extremely thought-provoking and helps lead you down a journey of self-discovery. Through her lessons, I became more in tune with what I'd like out of a career and what motivates me at work. She also provides anecdotes of her own experience as well, which I found valuable when trying to draw on examples from my own life.
Working through the lessons and going over them with Teresa made me feel more accountable towards my career discovery and helped me gain a better appreciation for my strengths and how I can utilize them in a career.
Technical Program Management
Even though this is a belated review, I had to share my experience working with Teresa because it was honestly life-changing! I began working with Teresa back in December 2018 when I was at a real low point in my career. I had graduated college and had aimlessly wandered from ad sales into analytics but neither profession was bringing me any joy. I felt unfulfilled but at an utter loss as to what I should do to move forward. In the following 4 months with Teresa, I learned more and more about my innate strengths and passions and I began to constructively think about how I could combine them into my career. At the end of the program, I was still indecisive about what exact profession I wanted to pursue. I took this opportunity to schedule a private appointment with Teresa and in our one-hour session, we deconstructed the fears that were preventing me from chasing my true passion. After I finished "Career Clarity", I began pursuing an internal transfer within my company to program management. A year later, my efforts were rewarded and I was able to successfully complete the transition into a Technical Program Management role. I am finally in a career that combines my innate organizational skills with my passion for facilitation. It was quite the journey but I am so thankful for Teresa because, without her, I would be continuing aimlessly down a career that wasn't aligned with my natural strengths and values. Teresa literally changed my life which is why I'd recommend everyone to take her program if you don't feel 100% satisfied in their current role.
I have to really thank Teresa and the Career Clarity program for helping me find my career path in Dietetics. I had been working in sales for a long while but I was very unhappy. My problem was that I had no idea what I wanted to do. I only knew that my sales career did not fulfill my need to help others. The Career Clarity program helped me realize what I was innately great at and what I was passionate about. The career tools and assessments were thought-provoking and insightful. I was asked questions (about the things I did and the way I think) that I never thought of before. The coaching exercises changed the way I looked at how I should view my career. In the end, I feel like I know myself better and I know for certain that I want to be in Dietetics. I am now going back to school to get my master's degree and I couldn't be happier. It is a long road from here, but I feel confident to make my career change. Thank you Teresa for your coaching and guidance and thank you for this program!
Teresa is absolutely amazing! I could not recommend her enough. I signed up for the PathUp Career Clarity program and so thankful I did. I had recently started a new career and was lacking confidence in my ability to bring anything valuable to my team. Teresa's workbook program and 1:1 sessions shifted my perspective and helped me work through my saboteur thoughts. She shared a perspective I hadn't considered and encouraged me to take new initiatives in areas I was reluctant to. After working on these initiatives I gained confidence in my value and impact I have contributed to my team. Not only have I gained more confidence professionally but also personally. I am extremely grateful for my work with Teresa!
Incredible! As others here have mentioned, she shared such valuable insights and perspectives with me. She said something that has really stuck with me in that "we own our careers," and in an age when it is more important than ever to speak up for what we want and own our seat at the table - Teresa, with her intuitive career senses, hit exactly on those points for me. I've been feeling a bit discouraged at work, and she gave me a new lens as well as a strategy to help push my growth. She gave me such valuable pointers that I could action right away in my 1:1 with my manager with the lens of looking to my next promotion. I can't wait for our future discussions together. If anyone came to me for a recommendation on someone to help build a resume and get more strategy around career development and growth - I couldn't think of a better person than Teresa and PathUp Career Coaching.
I am so happy to have been able to take Teresa's program. I was having a hard time finding a place for myself where I felt I would make a difference. Teresa really gave me the push in the right direction and thanks to her, I am now striving and getting my PharmD degree. If you are hesitant about needing a life coach, please do yourself a favor and reach out to her. Sometimes in life, all we need is a little push.
To add, Teresa's honesty and empathy are what sets her apart from the field. No matter how I struggled, she remained understanding, patient, and compassionate. She took it upon herself to make sure that I succeeded in the journey I had chosen for myself and she saw it through that I made the appropriate steps. Her advice was concise and thorough and never felt complex or too difficult to understand.
She is not afraid to push and ask pressing questions, yielding yourself to question and think things through. I whole-heartedly believe she has a passion for making a difference. I would recommend her to anyone especially those my age, to seek her counsel as she has a way with pushing you toward a life-fulfilling career.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Teresa and could not recommend her services more. I signed up for the Career Clarity program and found her one on one sessions and coursework very valuable. Teresa is easy to work with, insightful, and knows how to get you to dig a little deeper to help you understand what it is you're looking for. She also helped me put together a plan to ensure that I carry out the goals we set during the program. If you're searching for some help on what to do next with your career, this is the place.
