“I had the great pleasure of working with Ron in late 2010. I was amidst a career transition when Ron helped me by providing guidance, advice, recommendations, and direction. My transition was quite involved as I was hoping to shift roles, industries, structure, and organizational size. With Ron's commitment and ongoing counsel, I landed myself a dream position for an amazing organization.
Ron knew what questions to ask. He forced me to think hard about what was most important to me, then challenged me to do what needed to be done to get it.
"Thank you, Ron, for all your help and commitment. For those people, organizations, or teams that need people leadership and people empowerment, I urge you strongly to consider Ron. You won't find anyone more passionate about helping others realize their dreams.”

He also taught me the practical knowledge that I needed to enhance my resume and cover letter - a skill set that I carry forward to this day. I still have so much to learn from Ron so we routinely keep in touch. I highly recommend connecting with Ron as a proactive approach to being competitive in today's job market."

"I was referred to Ron Goodine for counselling when I lost my job. And after you lose your job what you hear most often is that when a door closes a window opens. Well, Ron was my window. His compassionate and insightful observations and questions guided me through a very difficult time. His patient coaching helped to rebuild my confidence and optimism about my future. Ron's commitment to help is genuine and informed. He is a good listener and he has consistently proposed strategies that are tailored to my unique personality and circumstances. He walked me through the essential steps to successfully land another job and I continue to seek his counsel as I navigate the challenges of the contemporary workplace."
- Catherine Champy, Administrative Coordinator
Finding myself between jobs was not a prospect I had anticipated. I am incredibly grateful that Ron was the career counsellor assigned to me. We had been friends a long time ago and this help reconnect us. The most important thing for me was that I could trust Ron. I had been job hunting for over a year and would manage to get interviews but never a job offer. I knew I needed help.
Ron leveraged his background and experience to help develop a roadmap for me. With his expertise I was able to capture what was really needed in my resume and the most significant help was how to prepare for interviews. I was pleasantly surprised how many interviews I was able to land with my updated resume.
The first interview I got was probably the most intense in my whole career and it felt like being in front of a firing line. It was really Ron’s guidance, preparation and role playing that prepared me so well, and I was pleased when I was invited for a 2nd interview. During the lows on my job hunting journey, Ron knew exactly what to say that would get me back to focusing on the next steps of my roadmap.
I have now been at my new job for 2 months now, and never in my wildest imagination could I have expected to get this perfect job.
