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!

My coach helped me with my job search process after I graduated from with my undergrad, and made that stressful time easier. She prepared me for interviews with mock interviews via Skype: I cannot tell you how helpful that was for my confidence. I also got great advice on my resume and cover letters, and I got the job i wanted. I later decided to pursue a graduate degree and apply for fellowships--a daunting and stressful task, as it required hours of diligent investigation and writing skills. So I reached out to my coach again. She helped me stay focused and to approach these problems with a step-by-step approach.  I was accepted at my top choice school (USC) and received merit money as well. My coach gave me professional, caring and compassionate guidance. She has helped me be successful, and I feel others will be as lucky to have a launchphase2 coach as I was.
I know Ferah Aziz both from HECA, the professional association to which we both belong, and from personal interactions. I have extensive admissions experience (having worked both as the head of several admission offices, and working now as a college admission counselor) and can attest that she is an outstanding college admissions consultant. Ferah cares deeply about the welfare of each student with whom she works. She is also exceptionally well-informed and meticulous in her work. In addition, she is a kind and sane person with whom it is a pleasure to collaborate. I am confident that she serves her student clients and their families exceptionally well!
