I came to Andy after unsuccessfully looking for a job for several months. Andy worked with me to identify the best approach in my job search and to determine the fit of the company I was going to interview with. He gave me a lot of great advice, including a good idea of the marketplace so that I could adjust my expectations which boosted my job search. He also supported me in my communications with potential employers and worked closely with me to prepare me for my interview. His support was available whenever I needed it and helped me get a job remarkably quickly after I started working with him. Andy is very professional and goes above and beyond expectations. I highly recommend him.
I came to Andy at a pivotal time in my career. One professional job was abruptly ending and I was applying for a new and better position with a smaller company. Andy was great in helping me prepare for the interview, asking me very relevant questions and taking time in getting to know me and my goals. I was offered the new job and Andy then walked me through the negotiation process, assisted in drafting letters to the company CEO and more. I feel my investment with Andy was well worth the results I achieved, a better position with a better salary! I would highly recommend Andy if you too find yourself in a career change and not sure which direction to go. Andy's skills and the tools he provides will certainly guide you to successfully achieve your career goals.
Andy was a great mentor to me. He gave me constructive feedback that I could put into practice not just in interviews and at the workplace, but in life! He helped me present my previous work experience in a way that made me seem like the best man for the job I wanted. He was like a second father to me as I navigated my way through my job-seeking process. He helped me prep for interviews by giving me great pointers, he was a keen observer of my demeanor and helped me find my confidence. Thanks to Andy, I got the job I wanted ever since I arrived in Charlotte. Without his face-to-face interview prep and constant feedback, I wouldn't be where I am today!
I first sought services from Andy after months of looking for a job with no success. Little did I know that not only would I be working on getting a job but also on myself. Andy equipped me with the tools to find a job and also building my confidence back up. Working with Andy has been one of the best decisions that I have made. I am so grateful to Andy for everything and of course my new job! Words cannot even begin to explain my gratitude!
Andy Thomas made a very positive change in my life after I hired him to coach me as I searched for a new position in the dental industry. His guidance, input and innovative techniques designed to land my next position resulted in two offers for employment within four weeks of working with Andy. He also helped me to regain my positive attitude, self esteem and present my very "best self" to potential employers. I cannot say enough good things about Andy and how he changed my life for the better. Thank you Andy!
When I met Andy he told me that his proven program is so effective, that I would land an interview within a month of using it. Sure enough, I did! Andy and his team go above and beyond giving world-class service whether you are in the middle of a job search, need professional advice/growth, or just want that extra encouragement to move your career to the next level. I assure you, the Andy Thomas team is there to support their clients with sound knowledgeable experience. Thank- you Andy and team!
When you reach out to Andy, Andy will give back to you. He will help you. Whatever problem it is you are having, he can help. When I contacted him I was in an extreme rut; but Andy was able to clear up some life issues, but mostly proved relentless with my career path. It took some time, but in a matter of months we finally arrived at my career path. His years in radio helped me begin mine, which in these current times seems next to impossible. His methods are very unique, and they do in fact work. I absolutely recommend Andy for any coaching and advice one may require. He is well worth the time and effort.
Andy is a fantastic coach with great energy and recommendations. He helped me immensely with my job search strategy and personal branding.
Andy gives new meaning to 'Career Coach'. He not only accesses skills and experience, but addresses personal life events that hold you back. For those with limited contacts, Andy's non-traditional approach to 'the job hunt' goes beyond the typical networking. He instills positivity and belief...but clings to reality. Highly recommend Andy!
Andy is the best career coach. He helped me rediscover my passions and how to apply them in today's every changing economy. He not only helped me transition into a new career field but helped me out to grow as a person. He has helped me not only on a professional level but on a personal one as well. Andy is great at following up and keeping up on the on going process of a career change. Andy helped me be the best person and candidate possible. I loved working with Andy and would recommend him to anyone who needs help to transition to a new career.
I sought assistance from Andy while looking for my next role as a new MBA in my fifties. I had been searching on my own for over a year without success, then with Andy's valuable insight and recommendations, was able to take a more targeted approach and found a great position that I otherwise would have missed. Thank you Andy!
Due to Andy's experience and proven techniques I was able to confidently secure a career changing position. I look forward to continuously working with him to enhance my current new career. Thanks again Andy.
Andy is really one of the best career coaches! I recently graduated from college, and did not have any leads in my job search, but with Andy's coaching and his techniques, I got my first full-time position out of college. I could not have done it without his help. Definitely the best choice I've made.
Andy Thomas is an expert in his field and for me did exactly what he said he would. In a tricky situation, he was key in problem identification and assessment, determining which gaps and re-positioning where required, and gave personal and professional guidance to get me there. His methodology is out of the box, yet provided me with exactly the resulted I desired.
After years of actively searching and applying for jobs I was faced with a dilemma, to either learn to like my job again, or proactively try something new to change my situation. Not only was I struggling with actually getting interviews, I was lost in what I wanted to do, and needed to really find purpose in my search. This is where Andy came into the picture. I reached out on LinkedIn to a number of coaches, however I liked how Andy was a career coach, not just a lifestyle coach thrown in. The first meeting was the most productive, as he basically just listened to me, and asked simple questions about my life, experience, interests, and perceived skills. By the end of the session, he looked at me, dropped his pen, and told me I had narrowed down my search by myself just through our conversation, and the industry of study abroad and international education was one answer. For the first time in a while I had purpose, which provided me with the ability to narrow down my search, and not only search for available positions, but searching companies that I felt had similar values and goals to my own. His tips regarding the search process and his seemingly simple LinkedIn approach to my outreach proved to be invaluable advice. During the few months we worked together I relied on Andy for advice when reaching out to employers, how to respond to "little bites", and some basic interviewing techniques, which included a few choice phrases that make a big difference. I had three interviews and spoke with Directors from companies I had reached out to, even though they had no positions available at the time. The final result, my dream job, and one that we talked about at the end on our first session, which still amazes me when thinking back. I also had to cancel the other two final meetings with separate companies with a President and a Dean once I received my offer. My wife is happy I reached out to Andy, and my ex-work colleagues are not, instead they are jealous! Have a good think about whether you are indeed happy with getting up each day to a job that makes you unhappy, or if you would value an investment like working with Andy to increase your quality of life. Plain and simple, some of the best $$ I have spent. You must approach working with Andy ready to work hard towards your ultimate goal, and be certain you are ok with someone that values brutal honesty. That's where the motivating sets in. Thanks Andy for your support and instilling a new level of confidence in my approach to my professional development. I do hope I don't have to work with you in the near future!!!
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This perfectly sums up my experience being a client of Andy's. Like a rudderless ship lost at sea, I had no direction or purpose in my career before working with him. Through his proven methodology and personal coaching, he provided me with the tools to take control of my own life and career. In less than 6 months, I went from having zero experience in advertising or politics; to working for one of the premier public affairs firms in the country. It's a beautiful feeling to wake up everyday and know that you have found your passion in life.
Andy is a responsive and conscientious professional who I consider to be a trusted adviser. He is willing to share practical advice and talking points from his own personal experiences that will help guide you through every step of the process. Andy helped me to get numerous interviews with his strong methodology. One of the things that differentiates Andy from other advisers, is that he says he will stay with you in the process until you complete the career change that you are looking for, and he stays true to his word. I would highly recommend Andy if you are seeking practical advice and results.
Andy is absolutely the best! Moving to a new city I was worried about standing out to employers and finding a job. Andy helped me all along the way, instilling confidence in myself and in his system. I had many opportunities presented to me using his techniques and many employers giving praise for reaching out. His techniques definitely made me stand out among other applicants. His system is very effective! Andy is extremely knowledgeable and was worth going the extra step to ensure my employment in a new city. He's welcoming, enthusiastic, and fun to work with. He gives his all to every client, checking in and ensuring his time when you need it, making you feel as if you're his only client. I highly recommend Andy to anyone facing an upcoming change in their careers, no matter the circumstance. Andy will ensure your success!!
Andy is a great career coach. He helped me a great deal to improve my job interview skills. With his help, I also have become more clear with my job search strategies and my career goals. Finally, I successfully landed my dream internship and a full-time job!
If you are looking for advancing your career but not sure who can truly help you, please take a look at this awesome and passionate coach, Andy Thomas! His methodology is fairly unique and I have learned so much from Andy. His confidence and experience truly impress me that he knows he can bring success to every client he works with. If you are an international student and want to learn how grow career in the United States, Andy is clearly your choice! He is capable of arming you from bottom to top and supply what you need in terms of culture and communication to be successful in the USA. I highly recommend Andy for any coaching and he is worth your investment and he won't let you down.
I really enjoyed working with Andy. He helped with the aspects of the career search I needed while building off the areas I didn't need help. He's a good listener and sets his sights on helping you get to where you want to go while vetting your ideas and grounding you in reality. Andy became one of my greatest fans and provided me a great deal of encouragement. Through working his process and taking his advice, I've just landed the best opportunity in the shortest amount of time possible in his program (4 to 5 wks).
I've had the opportunity to work with Andy and it's been a truly gratifying experience. He brings out the best in you and does everything possible to guide you in the right direction based on what motivates you and your specific set of skills. I highly recommend him to anyone who takes his or her career seriously and is ever in need of advice and coaching!
I was not looking for a new job or unemployed. I was wanting to polish my professionalism up and be better at the interview process. I googled career coach and found Andy. I finally decided it was time to get better! Andy did a wonderful job and I enjoyed the time he spent with me. In the process I was offered a different position with the same company and it was mostly because of the things that Andy taught me.
I highly recommend Andy for career coaching at any level. I sought out career coaching well in advance of when I thought I wanted to transition to a new job because I knew my situation was unique and challenging. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, but I wanted to do it 600 miles away while managing my responsibility to family members all separated by hundreds of miles. Andy and his staff were all incredibly accessible, knowledgeable, and great to work with. Andy helped me discover and refine my goals as well as increase my ability to sell myself. His method works and I've made great connections that will benefit me going forward. In addition, I found a job that is perfect for me in the exact location I wanted to be after only working with Andy for a short time. If you are looking for a little or a lot of help, Andy is the man you need to talk to.
Andy worked with me over a four week period to flesh out the business, marketing and sales plan for my consulting company. He helped me focus my consulting service offerings to a very specific client base and most importantly taught me how to effectively articulate my firm’s value proposition to my target mid-market clients using some very powerful techniques. He provided insightful advice, based on his on successful track record of selling services, that was instrumental in my ability to develop and deliver brief but powerful marketing messages, and highly effective sales pitches to my target clients. Prior to meeting Andy, I did not know where to even begin with regard to attracting customers. I had tried expensive seminars; books webinars etc. all to no avail! I did not initially believe that a personal coach could teach a former Big Five consultant with over 20 years’ experience anything of value. Andy taught me the most important aspect of my business, how to close the sale! I landed my first client after approximately two months of putting the techniques that I learned from him to work! There are a lot of snake oil salespeople out there but Andy is the real deal and I highly recommend him to anyone that is struggling to get their business up and running profitably. He has been an invaluable knowledge resource for me and my business.
I had the pleasure of working with Andy Thomas these last few months while transitioning to the Charlotte area. Andy was very professional, responsive, creative and was able to provide me with the confidence and the tools I needed to succeed. His coaching sessions were highly productive and his ideas and procedures produced results fast. I was never a big user of LinkedIn, but Andy was highly knowledgeable and showed me how to effectively leverage it. I’m also certain his guidance and expertise during interview prep was a largely responsible for my success. I was also impressed with how accessible Andy was. If I was unable to reach Andy directly, he always returned my calls by the end of the day. This was invaluable, especially when I need guidance on how to respond or react to various communications quickly. Andy’s team also worked tirelessly for my success. They provided me with with a complete rework of my resume and solid plan of how I needed to market myself to the Charlotte area. I highly recommend Andy Thomas and his team for all your career resource and motivational success needs.
I am very pleased to recommend Andy Thomas. Because I needed a new and fresh perspective on my recent career transition, I contacted Andy to discuss how he could help. I found his advice and coaching to be priceless. Andy took the time to get to truly know me and what types of work would truly fulfill me. Once defined, we developed an action plan based on Andy’s career search methodology. Andy held me responsible to deliver on my end as he coached me and results came in fast! Andy’s staff was also attentive and they provided me with a much improved resume as well. For all those reasons, I highly recommend Andy’s coaching service!
Job hunting can be a bit overwhelming when you are a small fish in a big pond. After trying on my own for three months with no real prospects, I looked on LinkedIn for a career coach. I talked to several, but Andy Thomas really stood out with his unique method. I must admit I was very skeptical of his approach, but his top tier program I chose (which there are several to choose from) gave me the tools and training to get multiple opportunities for employment. His deliberately crafted program took me from being a small fish in large pond, to a big fish in a bathtub by eliminating 90% of the competition. I was truly amazed that within 60 days I had direct contact with CEO’s, CFO’s and Chairman of the Boards of Billion dollar companies. Not only did I secure a job in the midst of an election year, but exceeded my salary expectation by 100%+. That was not a typo.... His program works, don’t pass up the opportunity if you are seriously looking for employment and are willing to commit the time required to bolster your chances. His staff is professional, discreet and determined to be your champion for success. Don’t contact him unless you are serious, you will get in the way of someone who needs their dream job !
Andy was very helpful and attentive! He helped guide me throughout the entire process and was readily available. The job process is very complicated and I am happy to say that he delivered great results!
I had attended an Andy Thomas marketing workshop in Charlotte recently and was happy I did! As a small business owner whose weakness has always been in sales and marketing, the insider information that Andy provided was invaluable to me. Most importantly, Andy was able to suggest proven methods and strategies for marketing my specific type of business. I highly recommend Andy's workshops to any small business owner that would like to gain an understanding of the sales and marketing aspect of their businesses.
