My parents and I first heard about Dr. Kay when I was a junior in high school, when my mom’s friend told her about how accurate Dr. Kay’s personality and career assessments were. At the time, I had little clue as to what career direction I should take, and my mom thought that with Dr. Kay’s guidance, I would be able to choose a college major that fits my personality. And it did.
Dr. Kay helped me see where my talents and interest lie, and which careers would be most fulfilling for me. After I learned where my career strengths are, Dr. Kay also helped me get admissions to many great universities and select college major that would prepare me for my future career.
Little did I know that this was not the end of my interactions with Dr. Kay. At the start of my junior year in college, the pressure was on to find a respectable summer internship. I went to all the fall careers fairs my school hosted, but I had little idea as to where to start.
So I took Dr. Kay’s career coaching program during winter break. First, she helped me devise an internship search strategy, then she helped me revise my resume to show all of my talents and experiences in an organized, concise way. She also helped me in my internship search, and encouraged me to apply for all the positions that I am qualified and are interesting to me. She continued to checking up on me throughout my spring semester, to make sure that I was on track. Her warm encouragements really boosted my confidence.
It was through her tireless coaching and my continued effort of applying, finally, I received an invitation to interview at the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) in Los Angeles. Dr. Kay went out of her way to help me prepare for my interview from her extremely tight schedule. In less than one week, I was ready, my interview went fluently, and I got the job!
Thank you Dr. Kay! Not only I was able to secure such a great internship for the summer, I can also continue applying all her career guidance in my job search in the future.
