I can not thank Karen enough for all of her help! Her insights on resume writing and the hiring process in general were very valuable to me. I went from not hearing back from any employer to getting interviews! I believe her help landed me the job I have now and will still be relevant later on in my career. 

 

Thank you so much Karen!

"I met with Karen a while back in order to update/reorganize my resume. She was very patient and took her time with me. Never did I feel rushed. I did get the job that I applied for after making the suggested changes. I have been at my new job since December 17, 2018 and I am much happier and love it! Thank you Karen for helping me improve my health and happiness."

"I contacted Karen through a mutual friend. She condensed and bolstered my resume and remained in constant contact with me, encouraging me to improve my LinkedIn profile to suit potential employers, Thanks to her personal interaction I was able to obtain a position in my field in the UK!"

"After working on the job for 15 years, I consider myself an expert in my field.  However, after the company I worked for folded and I had to start looking for a new job, I was lost.  15 years is a long time to be out of the job hunting game and I tried my best at it for about a month before feeling defeated. 

 

I contacted Sharp Human Resources.  They not only simplified my resume and gave me a job search strategy, but they also gave me new contacts and an new found enthusiasm to get back into the hunt. Before having their help I posted to dozens of places with no reply.  After their help, I applied to only 5 places and already received 2 interviews within a couple days of applying.  My only regret is that I didn't contact them sooner - would've saved myself a month of time!  If I am ever in trouble with the job hunt again, I know who to call."

Karen Sharp-Price has been extremely helpful to me in this time of transition in my career. After ten years in Education, I decided to pursue a career in HR. I met Karen through the Daemen College SHRM Chapter, and since then she has taken so much time coaching me, helping with my resume, forwarding me job postings, and reaching out to her contacts about jobs and internships that may be available. 

 

With one course to go in my certificate program, I have just accepted an internship with an HR consulting company, and I'm so happy and grateful for all of Karen's help over the last several months! Her expertise and knowledge have been invaluable.

"I can honestly say, I'm not sure I could have done this without you.  Just having a resource to talk to and provide helpful tips and suggestions has been such a plus for me during what has been a very anxious period for me.  I never would have written a resume that was targeted so closely to this job posting if you didn't bring that up during our first meeting.  Clearly that made an impact in getting me the opportunity to meet face to face with them and sell myself to the company. 

 

I've already shared your contact information with a few other people and I will always be a proponent of your services.

 

Thank you!"

"Karen has been a great motivator for me during my job search, keeping me focused and encouraged when I needed it. She also is very dedicated to helping people find their place in today's career market. Thank You Karen for helping me find my new work home!!"

Derek S

West Seneca, NY

"Before I met with Karen, I thought my resume was just fine. Then Karen would ask a clear question. And here's how my mindset shifted: Oh, yes, that would look better there! Oh, I had no idea hiring people did that. Oh, yes, you're right about taking that out.


And so on.  Without any pain or anguish, my resume improved dramatically.

 

Here's what's cool about Karen: beyond her exceptional organizational skills, common sense and super great professional background, Karen is caring. She worked with me as I shook out all those inconsistencies, all the bits that weren't quite right, until my resume was, as we both agreed, perfection.


I am very grateful for her!"

"I was a very prepared job seeker who thought finding work for me would be easy. I had many interviews but could not get the offer. I was hesitant at first to contact Sharp Human Resources, kind of wavy the "white flag". I met with Karen the night before a job interview. Karen gave me unique perspective on interviewing. I received an offer and accepted. I am glad I called on Sharp Human Resources - Thank You Karen."

"After taking a break from the workforce to raise children, I was finally ready to update my resume and consider my employment options. Karen worked closely with me to integrate my paid and volunteer experience into a coherent picture of my talents, and gave me some much-needed guidance for my LinkedIn profile. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I appreciate her continued diligence in identifying opportunities for me. I recommend her highly!"

Liz S
