Client Testimonials:

  • They will tell you "Knowing how to get a job is not the same as knowing how to do the job". Where ever you are in your professional journey, this is a profoundly true statement. As my transition specialist, Mitali is helping me bridge that gap in knowledge. Through each critical step of the process: resumes, networking & interviews, she is providing expert coaching and is teaching me how to perform at the level required to achieve my professional goals.
  • I especially wanted to thank Mitali Paul who was my personal transition specialist. Mitali was always candid with me, which was appreciated, and guided the process with a very insightful and helpful approach. I enjoyed our meetings and gained much knowledge from them. She compelled me to follow her directions and I believe this definitely helped me to find and land my new job. Thank you, Mitali!
  • Mitali was a very helpful part of my Wiederhold experience. In her role as transition specialist, Mitali was my primary contact for aid and assistance as I developed my personal career strategy and formalized that strategy into the key Wiederhold Career Whitepapers. In particular I found Mitali very talented at asking provocative questions that required me to develop a deeper understanding of what I wanted to do as well as what I should aim to do next in my career. I also found Mitali's guidance and insight on the "homework assignments" of listening to career counseling sessions, completing written development assignments, or preparing for job interviews, to be very practical and supportive. I would recommend Mitali and the Jim Wiederhold Process to any professional looking to make a career transition.
