When I learned that I had received an invitation to interview at several Physician Assistant programs, I was elated.  Soon after though, the nerves set in as I realized what all goes into mastering the interview.  That's where launchphase2 came in.  The difference just two sessions with my career coach made was unbelievable.  I felt much more confident in my answers and was able to adapt to anything the interviewers could throw at me.  I ended up being accepted and I couldn't be happier.  Thank you so much for your help, it played a crucial role in allowing me to take the next step towards my dream of becoming a PA!

Ferah has coached both of my children as they were getting ready to start applying to colleges. We didn’t realize until then how daunting the process was, and how many moving parts it included. It was definitely a very overwhelming time for both of them, however Ferah was able to successfully have them apply to the colleges they were interested in. She provided so many questionnaires and checklists to help them narrow down their choices, guided them and mentored them through the process, offered many opportunities for them to drop in and get support while filling out forms and writing essays, and simply made it possible to do something that would have taken so much more time and effort to make happen on their own. They are both now attending the college of their choice, and are very happy where they have ended up. Ferah turned a very challenging prospect into something achievable, and we are all so very grateful for her caring help and broad expertise in the field. -Proud Parent H.S.
“launchphase2 hit the ball out of the park with our son, a freshman at Mesa State. His coach expertly helped him choose a great major, and by second semester, he was able to choose courses that would count for his new major (which will save us money). Our son is really excited about his future career, and it’s a great fit for him. “ “I want to extend my gratitude for the coaching received from my son’s college / career counselor. He graduated from his state university within four years and received tips to enhance his academic achievement (GPA). He was guided to build an exemplary resume which included meaningful experiences like an overseas internship with the United Nations. His resume and college experiences should help lineup prospective employers. His coaching was worthwhile and was a wise use of time and money. Thank you so very much.”
