Shary helped me through the transition into a new career after I was caught up in a "headcount reduction" from the company I'd spent 18+ years with. The way we search for jobs has changed drastically over the last few years, so having somebody with experience in "the before times" as well as "the now" was invaluable! Shary shed light on new résumé trends, interview and hiring practices 13 and so much more. It was wonderful to work with someone who so obviously cares about their clients and helping to smooth out their career transitions.

Shary is brilliant and is the most knowledgeable and talented career coach I have ever met. She possesses a unique ability to listen attentively, identify strengths and weaknesses, and develop tailored strategies to overcome challenges. It’s clear Shary’s commitment to her clients is second to none. I was fortunate to have her on my side during my career search.

I really appreciated Shary Raske serving as guest lecturer for my graduate-level Managerial Communication class at University of Missouri-St. Louis. Her topic, Career Linguistics was thought-provoking for this group of ambitious MBA students. They learned a lot, particularly about the importance of key word analysis to strengthen their career trajectory. Thanks, Shary!
