My Favorite Client
“As I compete with fellow students for limited internship opportunities, Ana taught me how to differentiate myself by creating my own unique brand, thus allowing me to best communicate my abilities to potential employers.”

Florida State University Accounting University

“Ana helped my daughter identify her strengths and encouraged her to apply to schools that specialized in her specific career interest, which boosted her self-confidence. She kept my daughter focused on application deadlines, reducing the stress. We could not have succeeded in finding a good college match without Ana’s personal and professional guidance.”

“The AIMS career-coaching model is far superior to any professional or web-based advise. The structure will take you from Resume to Salary Negotiation and will teach you the techniques to market your value to any future employer. Just when I thought my resume was great; AIMS taught me how to make it stand apart.
