Pounding Pavement 101

We are here to help you in your job search!

Pounding Pavement 101 was created based on years of experience of talking to people and hearing that they have no plan as they go job hunting or how to prepare for an interview. We felt that there was information that needed to get out there from the eyes of the Recruiter/Employer/Interviewer to make the experience a little less painful than it needs to be. 


Our goal at Pounding Pavement 101 at the end of the day is toprovide you with expertise, information and  build confidence to make your job search successful.  Learn the secrets from a Recruiter on the inside sharing personalized guidance to highlight your attributes and make you shine! 


 We work with you privately, in a group session or in a lecture situation to bring your project into focus.  This can be achieved by developing a plan, writing materials, preparing for an interview, and following up on leads.

Testimonials

"Ilene changed my outlook on how to achieve this goal from my initial mindset of “something will come to me” to “I need to bang on every door I can find until I get where I want to be.”   
— G.L., College Graduate and Now Employed! 


" Ilene simplifies the equation. "
— A.C., College Student Seeking Co-op/Internship  


"Ilene has cracked through that shell of our son's stubbornness by demonstrating that what she offers clearly works. .... She has instilled in him a confidence that we never thought possible."  
— P.S., Parent of a College Graduate

 

You need to get a new job? You need to talk to Ilene. I look at my job search in two parts - pre and post Ilene. Before Ilene I was applying for jobs and ..... well that is all, I was applying for jobs. I was getting the usual "we are looking at other candidates" and lots of recruiter calls that went absolutely no where. After I met Ilene and she helped me redo my resume and fix my Linked In Profile....I talked to a LOT more recruiters and actually went on interviews, plus... I actually got a job. Ilene knows the business of job hunting. More importantly she knows the business of Job GETTING and she's in your corner. Don't be like me and have a 'pre Ilene' phase.
