I’ve been in the corporate world for over 25+ years. I was approached by HR to see if I would be interested in applying for a new position to advance my career. I was excited and terrified at the same time. I haven’t been on an interview in years. I met with Marianne Grady from Rise Above Resources and her coaching was phenomenal. The “Fabulous 50” interview questions prepared me for my interview. It made me think about my answers so I was ready for any question that came my way. I felt confident, empowered and I nailed my interview.

It was informative and offered a wealth of knowledge in addition to providing a comfortable learning environment. I can recommend Marianne to anyone seeking personal and professional development and for her expertise on Interview coaching. Additionally I can recommend her for her contributions in organizing a successful, informative and enjoyable program which was definitely appreciated by all those who were in attendance.
Marianne provided great insight and expert advice to the Cornell Executive MBAs on a panel of Executive Recruiters. She is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker who I look forward to working with in the future.
First, she invested the time to get to know me personally as well as the career situation I was facing. Then she used her experience to shepherd me to the goal I wanted, yet didn’t have the rationale or confidence to achieve. Our interaction was most credible because, throughout the process, she inspired me with stories that were relevant to each aspect of my specific situation. Lastly, she put together an interview strategy and pushed me out of the airplane. Of course, I got the job and am still flying and continuing my climb.
