TESTIMONIALS

Jade Smith-Williams.jpg

"I am floored by The Refinery's expertise and professional savvy. I frantically reached out to the company the night after salary negotiations bean for a lateral attorney position. I realized I was in over my head going at this process with a national law firm without any professional guidance. The Refinery responded right away. They very graciously offered to get involved and help me steer negotiations back in the right direction by giving me some tips to mitigate my early missteps. I am still in the midst of negotiations, but feel so much more confident and empowered to advocate for myself and close the deal on a job I really want."

“I was looking to negotiate my salary and title as an occupational Therapist in an upcoming annual review and want to learn how. I attended a webinar hosted by The Refinery and was able to connect with the company after. They went above and beyond to help, and in the negotiation breakdown, provided up-to-date market research as well as evidenced based practice to support my request for a higher title and salary. I highly recommend working with The Refinery and feel much more confident walking into this review because of them.”

“I have been using The Refinery for the last year to improve my interviewing skills and to ensure my resume represents all of the experience and skillsI have gained. The Refinery has helped by certifying that everything I have worked hard for gets the recognition it deserves. Doing so has been a valuable investment, resulting in a steady elevation within my career. Just recently, The Refinery assisted me in landing an employment opportunity that was critical to my career. When it came time to discuss salary they were also there to help me draft a negotiation document to “secure the bag.” Paying for their services is a no brainer because it has always resulted in me obtaining more financially from my employer.”

“As interview season approached, I became more and more stressed thinking about what my interviewers would ask me. I had a general idea of how I wanted to portray myself, but was unsure of how to do it. The Refinery helped me organize my thoughts, accentuate what makes me unique as a candidate, and figure out how to answer any possible question that may be asked. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for The Refinery for helping me get into physical therapy school.”

"The Refinery took me from a place of panic to a place of total confidence, as I was prepping for my interview just in the nick of time! The consultant I worked with was assuring but firm in coaching me. He elevated my interview experience in a way that I didn't expect. I was hesitant at first but truly The Refinery became the missing piece in my mission to getting into DPT school! I am thrilled and excited to now be starting my dream career in New York! The Refinery, Thank You!"
