What Students Are Saying
One of Jessica's greatest assets is her international perspective. I participated in her German Resume Rockstar workshop and gained valuable knowledge about the local recruiting process, insights into the German labor market, and how to improve a resume from a foreign person's perspective. Thanks to her good facilitation skills and a focus on essential information, I feel confident this knowledge can help anyone achieve good results in Germany.

I participated in Germany Career Circles & German Resume Rockstar workshop by Jessica. The comprehensive content was tailormade for international students seeking a career in Germany. The sessions were peppered with Germany's higher education research data further elaborating on the points discussed during the seminars. The sessions were interactive and she also incorporated case-specific questions of the participants. Owing to her workshops, I have gained confidence and information to kickstart my career in Germany.
