Kudos for Shar:
“I am an experienced HR director and was looking for a job recently. Shar looked at my resume and immediately had creative ideas on how to improve my presentation and how to showcase my skills and experience. I was impressed with her immediate recognition of what was missing, overstated or not communicated well. She is talented, and even more importantly, she cares about you as an individual. Her work is not from a template, but given individual thought and creative focus. I recommend Shar without reservation and feel confident that anyone who requests her assistance will be impressed with the product she delivers.” -- Lois S, HR Director
“I can’t say enough good things about my counselor Shar Silva. She helped me fine-tune my résumé, and I immediately started getting calls for phone interviews. She was encouraging throughout the whole job searching process and was extremely responsive. I can’t imagine going through this process without her guidance and advice. I would recommend Shar to anyone who needs help navigating the murky waters of job hunting!” -- Rachel N, Purchasing Director
“Sharlene Silva, at the Bay Area Career Center, did an amazing job helping me with my resume'. She listened to my work accomplishments and who I am. Shar built my resume' into a strong, results driven format to help me stand out in my job search. She is knowledgeable regarding the food industry and helped guide me to research companies that match with my personal goals and values. My son, a military veteran, also worked with Shar to get a resume' together to transition into the civilian workforce. She outlined his military experience in a way that it can translate into a law enforcement career. He feels more confident and her counseling taught him how to interview and explain how his military skills are transferable into different job fields.” -- Emily N, Director of Sales
“Shar Silva recently helped me take my resume from a zero to a hero. We worked for a couple of days on-line and she was a real pro. Shar's ability to understand her client's career goals is outstanding and she can quickly transform the goals into resume worthy material. I reached out to Shar a few weeks after the master resume was finished to have an "alteration" done on it to add a specialty and she was prompt, receptive and produced exactly what I needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Shar to anyone who needs any professional promotion materials.” -- Cami W, CEO
