If you are struggling to find a job post-graduation, or at any time, I couldn’t recommend Diana enough! She is great. She knows a lot about her field, is easy to talk to, and provides a reassuring voice that all recent grads need to hear. Five stars!

It was so very helpful to get your objective perspective on my projects and the advice you gave — based on your wealth of experience in the field — was very helpful to me. I had no idea on how to proceed, but thanks to you I have a solid plan of action.

Diana has made a lasting impact on numerous students’ lives. I’m quite sure that she was instrumental in helping a student in my course land a competitive internship at Penguin this spring. [She offers] a mix of realistic professional advice and a kindness that puts every student at ease and makes them feel hopeful about their futures—which is no small thing.

Our chat has already helped give me some ideas on avenues I can pursue. The challenges being what they are, your words of wisdom made changing careers seem like a real possibility (as opposed to a pipe dream).
